My New Book: The Ultimate Girls' Body Book!

Publication Update: My new book, The Ultimate Girls' Body Book: Not-So-Silly Questions About Your Body, released in January! Published by Zondervan and coauthored with Dr.Walt Larimore, the book helps equip girls and the adults who love them during the change-packed years of puberty. Full of humor and fun stories, it is written from a Christian perspective to help girls see themselves through God's eyes as they grow into the women God created them to be. 

Having spent Thanksgiving with one of my BFFs (of more than thirty years!), I love thinking that the stories of true friendship I share in the book will help growing girls make wise choices. We cover everything from periods to pimples to bras, healthy boundaries with social media and much more! A panel of experts and mother-daughter teams helped us write a relevant, accurate resource. I am very thankful for each of them. 

Please join me in thanking God for the blessing of speaking into young girls' lives and pray with me that God will be glorified through this meaningful project. And, if you have a few minutes, learn more about the book by listening to my interview with Jo Rathmanner from January 3rd on Connecting Faith Live. And thank you for helping me spread the word!
