A few weeks ago I was at a conference called DotMom in Frisco, Texas. Even though now that I think about it, I guess it was really more like a month ago. I have no idea. My last month and a half has been a haze of deadlines and stomach bugs and bundt cakes and battles over Easter sandals.
Anyway, while I was there, I noticed an exhibit for something called For Girls Like You, but I was busy and didn’t have time to stop and check it out. But I was curious because I have a daughter and I’m always on the lookout for anything that might be of use to me as I try to navigate the tricky waters of mothering a girl.
For Girls Like You is a ministry to young girls (ages 6-11) and their parents. It includes a quarterly print magazine, journal, and other print and web resources. The purpose is to introduce young girls to Christian values in a relatable way so they can walk passionately and boldly in who God has created them to be.
Wynter sent me a few past editions of the magazine and I gave them to Caroline to see if she’d like them. And she did. She read them in bed at night and told me at one point, “Mom, these have some really good advice about things I think about.”
And, trust me, she wouldn’t just say that. She’s a tough critic.
Today I have the chance to give away a gift pack to one of you. It will include a copy of the For Girls Like You Magabook, a Journal and Spring 2013 Magazine Issue, along with a subscription to the magazine. All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment. Maybe you can share how old your daughter is. Or how old your granddaughter is. Or how old the girl you have in mind for this is. Whatever.
One comment per person please. I’ll leave comments open until Friday and then choose a winner using a random number draw.
