10 Things for Teen GirlsKate Conner
The world is run by teen girls: parents of teen girls, teachers of teen girls, boys trying to date teen girls, feminists who want to empower teen girls, companies trying to sell things to teen girls, and people who have had it "up to here" with teen girls. Chances are if you... Read More
Based on student minister Kate Conner's runaway blog post, this book answers a lot of important questions: Why should I follow my heart? Should I care what other people think of me? Why are boys only interested in my body? How do I handle my emotions? Am I beautiful? Am I enough?
Teen girls have already heard the typical shtick about how they need to dress modestly, or how they shouldn't care what others think of them, but it doesn't suffice. Rooted in biblical wisdom and interspersed with candid stories of the modern teenage experience, Conner's imparts common (and all too uncommon) sense.

- Our treasures - our girls - need our help by Vera on 9/4/14
Got a teen girl? Or a 'tween girl? Or a girl? Well, Moms and Dads of girls need to read Kate Conner's on-target, get-in-your-face (and heart) book that gives you the low-down and a head's up on what your teen girl needs. So if you don't right now, this very minute have a teen girl, but you do have a "girl on board," this little book is right down your alley.
Initially, you'll see that these girls need to be told in words, actions, and deeds....
You are beautiful
You are valuable
You are enough
Its a hard, mean world out there and our treasures, our girls are vulnerable; and it is your responsibility, Mom and Dad, to protect, shape, and strengthen them. This is a great tool for parents to use to help instill in their daughters that they are of value. They belong to the King of Kings. They are not objects. And on and on....
Kate Conner has a delightful writing style replete with get-you-attention termanology and real "cool" humor. You'll laugh and you'll "Oh me" throughout. You'll wish your parents could have had a book like this when you were that teen. I'm not going to pretend and say I agree with everything she says, but by-and-large she is "spot-on" and she uses Scripture to back what she says.
While written for teen girls, you'll WANT to read the book so you can begin to understand and help that teen you love.
