The Fifth Year Celebratory Giveaway!


 Hello dear friends and a happy Wednesday to you all!  Today is a very special day for me as I look back on five wonderful years of writing on Beautiful Girlhood. 
I thank and praise our gracious Lord Jesus for allowing me to share my journey here and encourage my fellow sisters in Christ to stand up for the truth and embrace their God-given femininity. 

At one point in my blogging journey, not too long ago in fact, I wondered about my blog and if my season posting on it was perhaps ‘done’. 


But the Lord showed me in His loving way that although that season may be ‘done’, a new one has just begun.  He revealed to me that there are young girls out there who need encouragement to take hold of the Lord’s hand when entering their wonderful yet challenging season of beautiful girlhood...

I don’t pretend to have learnt all there is to know about this delicate change from girl to woman, but I pray that Jesus will use me through my blog to reach others and inspire them to seek a closer walk with Him.

One of the loveliest guides for Christian teen and pre-teen girls is the treasure of a book ‘Beautiful Girlhood’, revised by Karen Andreola.  

http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Girlhood-Revised-Karen-Andreola/dp/1883934028 

This particular book speaks in a simple yet loving way to young girls on sensitive subjects such as modesty, character, boys, etc and reveals to them how rewarding serving the Lord through their girlhood years and beyond can be. 
This book can also be especially helpful for moms of young ladies and is a wonderful tool to bring mothers and daughters closer together even through the ‘difficult years’.

In a world where girls are so misled during their teen years and where moms are totally at a loss as to how to help and guide their precious daughters through the changes she experiences, this book is a must read for all women.

My own dear mother has six daughters and I am her eldest.  I confess that I was not (...and still am not!) a walk in the park for her.  I gave her plenty of grief and heartache – what dear daughter doesn’t?  But thankfully she stuck by me, prayed for me and now we both are beginning to see the fruits of our labour.
I love my mom dearly and enjoy being with her and I know she loves and enjoys me too.  This is so special and could have been lost had we not been committed to going through everything together. 

As a token of my appreciation for all your sweet comments and kind words along my blogging journey, I have decided to host a giveaway and offer a copy of Beautiful Girlhood to one lovely reader.  I know that you – whether you’re a mother, grandmother, sister or aunt of a young lady or a young lady herself, will be very blessed by this book.  Prepared to be challenged and inspired!

Beautiful Girlhood is a book my friend has read and wholeheartedly recommends. I would love to have the pleasure of reading it for myself and sharing it with my younger sisters.
