U R More
In 2014, Jennifer Strickland founded U R More, a non-profit ministy which provides life-changing events and resources for women in prison, girls in recovery, sororities on college campuses, and high school students in public and private schools. A partner with the Just Say Yes program, Jennifer speaks widely in underprivileged communities, where she shares her story and challenges kids in school assemblies to become "More" than where they came from and declare a "More" valuable price tag on their bodies than what the media presents. U R More is devoted to teaching people their value and inspiring them to find their real purpose.
As Jennifer speaks in communities challenged by economics or demographics that make it hard for a girl to find true identity in Christ, she gives away her books that teach a person's inherent worth in the eyes of God.

We all need to know we have worth. When people understand their value, they do not allow themselves to be abused. They do not treat their bodies carelessly and give away their sexuality; they stand up for their worth, protecting their bodies as a way of guarding their hearts. When young women understand their value, they do not give their bodies away, and do not measure their beauty on a scale or with a measuring tape; they know that beauty is an inside job and their investments in others is the record of their true worth. Boys who grow up understanding their worth see themselves as positive voices in women’s lives - and seek to protect a girl's sexuality rather than steal from it. Godly men speak life and dignity into others, because they have it themselves.
Teaching people their identity in God’s eyes is key. As people begin to see themselves as children of God and reflections of Him, they walk as those who are not defined by social media popularity, wealth, or appearance. Their self-worth comes from the One who made them, died for them, and desires to live with Him for eternity. No one can give us that kind of value; no one can take it away. Our God-given identity gives us solid ground to walk on.
Desiring a purpose is something common to every human heart. At U R More, we love helping people find their purpose. Your pain and passion always point to your purpose. Using your life experience to make lasting impact in the world is the most fulfilling thing you can ever do. When you do this, you are a World Changer, and you are a part of what we are doing at U R More!
