2. Significantly less likely to be depressed as an immediate reaction to life-changing situations.
3. Significantly less likely to have used alcohol or dated a non-Christian in the past 12 months.
4. Significantly less likely for depression to be the teen's immediate reaction to the life-changing situation.
5. Somewhat less likely to struggle from substance abuse.
6. Somewhat less likely to have had sexual intercourse in the past 12 months.
