ENOUGH ~ 10 things we should be telling teenage girls . . . A Giveaway

http://www.bhpublishinggroup.com/products/enough/
 
I'm all about being pro-active.  So when a book's sub-title is 10 things we should be telling teenage girls, I'm thinking that maybe this is a good reason for parents of tweens {10 - 12 year olds} as well as parents of the 13+ crowd to grab hold of this important little guidebook.
 
The title is, simply put, ENOUGH.  Facebook.  Tanning beds.  Modesty.  Flirtation.  All the drama.  You know what I'm talking about.  Youth minister / blogger Kate Connor serves as your own personal translator in navigating potentially stormy waters.  {I'm jotting down her 9 ways How Not To Be a Twit for myself!}  She's biblical.  Smart.  Practical.  And she speaks to where this next generation is today
 
 
And I sure would rather that your girls {and mine} hear what they need to hear from their parents and not on the back of the school bus or at one of those infamous sleepovers.  And that those conversations start long before something comes up that could have been discussed with much less drama or trauma along the way.
 
But don't panic.  It's never too late for a fresh start.  Truly.  Even for those young women who've made some poor choices along the way.
 
I've got a copy of ENOUGH for one of our readers.  Just leave a comment on any post until Wednesday, July 23rd at noon {Eastern}, and you'll be in the running for this relevant parenting tool.  {US and Canada only, limit one comment per post!} Don't have a tween / teen / young adult daughter?  I bet you know someone who does.  Or have a library to donate to. 
 
For every young woman is beautiful.  Valuable.  And enough.

    1. Every season has it's joys ... and woes! If I had to do it all over again, I would let alot more things go ... and have a much more active sense of humor!

      All that said, my girls are now in their mid-30s and they're not only my daughters, but my closest confidants and friends.

    1. I agree with you completely, my friend. The grandparenting years are simply golden! We get to have all the fun ... and send the little ones back to their everlovin' way-more-energetic parents.

      We've got it made!

  4. Hi Linda! This woman sounds so grounded and so focused! What a blessing she is/was for the young women she led. My daughter is a mom of two little girls, and I think she would love to read this. Her husband is involved in church ministry, so he could really benefit from this book.
    Incredible that her message resounds so deeply and widely! I hope many will be blessed and directed by this author.

    Not be be a twit huh? Maybe I'll have to check that out :)
