With the pandemic creating fear and other enormous social problems, the suicide rate is epidemic and on the increase. Dr. Joyce Brown, a dear friend, is the best person on the planet to help stop suicides. She has received hundreds of letters thanking her for saving their lives after reading her book, God’s Heavenly Answers.
Dr. Joyce Brown knows something about suicide because she’s been suicidal before. She also has experience with suicide in her family, including her father and sister, and four cousins. But now, after her transformational near-death experience, and with a unique set of coping techniques, Dr. Joyce has a critical message for those who are contemplating suicide – a message directly from God: “Life is worth living, and loving, even with all of its challenges!”
A Few Suicide Facts
Dr. Joyce Brown organized: Stress and Grief Relief, Inc. a small non-profit with a big message: Suicide is not the answer. Tragically, since COVID-19, the suicide rate has risen dramatically, particularly among students. For those in the 10 to 24 age group living in the Rocky Mountains, suicide is the leading (#1) cause of death. “The number of people who said they have seriously considered suicide in the past 30 days has increased most dramatically among the youngest adults (ages 18 to 24).” The percentage of young adults seriously considering suicide jumped from 10.7% in 2018 to 25.5% in August 2020. All ages nearly tripled, growing from 4.3% to 11% in the same period.

For Those Who have Lost Faith
Using the scientific method, I have found 1,800 phrases in our scriptures that tie back to the language of Adam and prove the validity of the scriptures: Even though it is not perfect the King James Version of the Bible has done more good than any other book. The resurrection of Christ is the best documented miracle in all of the earth’s history, and because of His infinite atonement we receive of His love and mercy as we repent. and we know when we come before Him, His judgement will be perfect.
Faithfully yours in Christ, who can heal all wounds, minds, and hearts.
