I was given a review copy of the book to provide my honest feedback. All opinions are my own.
I have taught my kids a lot. Some lessons are more important then others, but overall each of them add up to make my boys the sweet amazing little men that they are. The most important thing I have taught my sons is that there is a God who loves them. A God who is always cheering for them. A God who works everything for their good. Life gets tough, but knowing you have a friend like that makes even the hardest days doable.
I recently came across a book called Glory Girl and even though I have boys I wanted to check it out. I have little niece and little girl cousin too :)
I love this book! It is so empowering to little girls (and the people in their lives.) In a world were so much is going on it can be hard to just pause and figure out who you are and how God sees you. Even tougher if you are a preteen or teenager. This book reminds girls to stop and reflect to reevaluate what's important to them.
Book Summary Glory Girl, with Jess Connolly’s wisdom and guided journaling opportunities, will help girls ages 8-12 feel confident in who they are as they discover who they are meant to be through God.
