Raising teens is both wonderful and challenging! Kids are finding their voice and learning how to use it in a God-glorifying way. They make mistakes…but then again, so do I. As parents, we are the most important people in the lives of our teens. Whether they acknowledge it or not – we are.
Connecting with our teens can be tricky. But a sincere connection is vital for a healthy family dynamic. Just over a year ago, God gave me the idea to create a teen girl course with my daughter. My daughter was excited about the idea and we brainstormed topics together. We shared ideas and we created video lessons. I created the worksheets and she edited them. We came up with ideas for bonus material and she gave me ideas for songs for each lesson. I never dreamed that this course would become a wonderful way for us to connect and draw closer together. But it did. She has ministered to my heart on so many levels. It truly has been a beautiful gift for both of us.
It was our intention that our course would draw other teen girls and their mother closer together as well as draw girls closer to God. So, the fact that we were drawn closer together is a BONUS for us! PS – if you are interested in this course, it is offered at its lowest price now for a short time. Cart closes midnight, November 24th.
