MOUNT VERNON — Practical advice for teenagers from an experienced standpoint will be the focus Sunday at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Whether it’s a pregnancy, peer pressure, a difficult relationship or just needing to feel wanted or accepted, youth facing a number of issues should find some helpful advice at the Champions for Life event, which is being presented in conjunction with The Escape Zone.

Serving as director of The Escape Zone is Karen Bush. “I thought we weren’t doing enough for these kids,” said Bush after hearing stories from teens coming to The Escape Zone about a pregnancy or a strained relationship in their home. She then heard a Focus on the Family broadcast on WNZR where a guest speaker, Kim Anthony, was addressing many teen issues in today’s society. Hearing Anthony’s testimony and the advice being offered for today’s teens, she made arrangements for Kim and her husband, Corwin, to conduct a seminar at Mount Vernon Nazarene University to speak on many timely subjects.
