What are the challenges younger girls are facing today that ten years ago more likely would have been encountered during their teen or college years?

3 Questions To Ask Your Daughter About Dating {by Daniel Anderson}

My daughter decided not to kiss dating goodbye – and I was OK with that. In 1997, Joshua Harris released I Kissed Dating Goodbye. Hundreds of thousands of Evangelicals read this book. It eventually sold more than a million copies and the language of “courtship” ensconced itself into 90’s/aught-era Christian speak. I was a youth pastor at the time and I, too, read Harris’ book. Like so many parents, Harris’ thinking fit nicely with my view of the world. Namely {Read More}

5 Tools to Help Your Teen Driver Stay Safe!

I’m not a big worrier as a parent. I don’t freak out over fevers or stay up at night fretting over my teens’ future choices. There is one thing I am concerned about though, and it keeps me on my knees: TEEN DRIVERS. The teen who leaves socks balled on the living room floor and peanut butter on the counter (constantly) is now in control of a moving vehicle, on busy roads, and must remember 10,934 rules of the road! {Read More}

Teaching Teens To Be Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

As a mom of ten kids I’ve been though every stage (a few times!), and I have to say that the hardest, most confusing time for girls is the pre-teen and teen years. Between ages 12-16 girls’ bodies are changing, their emotions are charged, and on a scale from 1-10 their desire for peer approval is an 11.5! All the lessons that little girls soaked in during quiet time devotions about their value, worth and beauty dissipate as soon as {Read More}
