Welcome to another soul-nourishing episode of Flourish-Meant. Today, your host, Tina Yeager, invites you to tune into a compelling discussion on mental wellbeing for teens, featuring the remarkable insights of author and national speaker, Laura Gallier.

Laura Gallier ( is an author and national speaker whose inspiring life story empowers students and adults to overcome enemies of the soul such as oppressive thoughts, emotions, and habits. Having battled her own enemies of the soul throughout her teen and young adult years, she is on a mission to expose deception with the light of truth, bringing hope and healing to a generation in need. As an advocate of biblical truth in a skeptical generation, Gallier sheds light on many of today’s most highly debated moral and social issues. She is the author of the Christy Award award-winning novel series, The Delusion. Gallier is the lead developer of the I AM WORTHY Mental-Emotional Wellness and Character-Building Program for Students in public schools.

Laura shares not only from her wealth of professional knowledge but also her personal journey through dark emotional challenges. Together, they delve deep into the pressures facing today's youth—from existential angst fostered by societal messaging to the breakdown of family structures and the often misleading allure of social media influencers.
Laura highlights the importance of a holistic approach to mental health that encompasses body, mind, and spirit, touching on the physical impact of our thoughts and the power of beliefs in shaping self-worth. They confront the complex realities of spiritual warfare and the influence of the demonic on our vulnerabilities and despair. 
Moreover, Laura offers thought-provoking perspectives on the shifting sands of faith among teens, the significance of engaging with tough questions, and the transformative power of knowing God's love. From discussing the nuanced challenges of confronting topics like homosexuality to advocating for intimate relationships with God over religious legalism, this episode promises to equip listeners with wisdom and actionable advice for guiding teens towards healing, truth, and flourishing mental health.

Here are **3 Key Takeaways** from Laura's interview:

- **Understanding the Whole Person**: Laura stresses the importance of addressing teen mental health from a holistic perspective—encompassing the body, mind, and spirit. She highlights the impact of societal messages and the fragmentation of the family unit on teen mental wellbeing. 🌿

- **The Power of Authentic Faith**: She discusses the decline in belief in biblical truth among teens and parents, suggesting that modeling a genuine relationship with God rather than merely following doctrine could be transformative. 🙏

  • **Navigating through Delusion**: Lastly, Laura touches upon her book series, "The Delusion," explaining how it aims to illustrate spiritual warfare in a way that's relatable to teens. Her goal is to convey that true fulfillment and safety come from aligning with God's truth, not societal falsehoods. 📚
