I won’t bore you with the details, but it’s safe to say this project will not die. It’s been coming up in my heart for years and years. I’m not the first to imagine a mother/daughter study. Or the first to gather daughters and talk about critical topics in these tween years. There are so many women fighting for our girls and I am grateful for that.
I just can’t walk away from what God keeps laying on my heart to share with moms. What I love to do is make hard topics practical. I love to resource moms just like me in the journey. I have two girls that I adore. They aren’t perfect and I am not perfect.
Just like you, we are walking through all the issues. From friendships to identity to emotions and bodies and more. I don’t have the answers, but I certainly am giving it all I’ve got. And most importantly, I want to keep pointing them back to the ONLY ONE who will fill the deep hole in their hearts. It’s God.
Treasured isn’t an exclusive club for Christian girls only. However, the content you’ll find here will talk about Jesus because I don’t know of another way to tell my girls and your girls they are Treasured.
I believe it is true. I know it to be true. I know that if they anchor their souls and hearts in something that doesn’t change – they will ride these waves much better. I know that the troubles will come – but He will be what holds them. I know that it’s worth my time to gather in a circle and tell them they are Treasured by God. Treasured by Mom.
My prayer and goal is to equip you with a simple small group study that has 9 practical sessions for your tween girls by this Fall. I have gone through investor meetings, publisher calls and many tears. I can see it. I believe in it – not because I am awesome or brilliant. I believe in the project because our girls need to know some simple truths about who they are. Moms need it in a format that’s easy to use in our fast-paced, ever-changing world.
I am committing to you today, just hours after yet another rejection letter – that I will get you this curriculum one way or another. Producing journals and videos isn’t cheap – but I am determined to find away and not to hide and give up when it’s getting difficult. I don’t know that it will change your daughter’s life or save her from all the pain – but I can promise you it will point her to our Heavenly Father. It will provide a chance for you to bond with her. It will open communication and opportunities for key conversations.
I am for you. My heart loves my girls and yours.
