A Touching Email from Pennsylvania

We received this touching email this week from a fan in Pennsylvania.:
I wanted to tell you how your music has been a blessing recently. There is a 16-year-old girl in my youth group whom I've known for a long time. Before she came to faith in Christ, she had a problem with cutting herself and thinking about suicide. Well, she came to the Lord and has been living for Him ever since. Please pray for our friend, Ray, and the girl he wrote about.
About a week and a half ago, her mom was unexpectedly taken to the hospital due to an extreme allergic reaction. They had her on a ventilator, and things were just looking really bad. Well, very early one morning the girl sent me an e-mail.
With everything going on with her mom, she started feeling really overwhelmed. She started thinking about cutting herself again to cope with things. In her email to me, she asked me what the Bible says about suicide and cutting.
Well, I was really nervous about this because I didn't want her to hurt herself. It just so happened I had been listening to Hot Potato Soup and I thought of your song "For Just You." I had her listen to the song and explained the Scripture to her that you reference with the lyrics.
Ever since, she seems to finally see how important her life is, and not to harm herself. I want to thank you and God for the tremendous blessing that your music is. I'm hoping to place another order before Christmas, so I can share your music with my friends and loved ones.
God bless you guys!
