Being a mom of a teen girl can have its challenges. Just the hormones alone can be a conflict of interests and recipe for disaster. Being a mom to a teen girl in this society also adds to the challenges.
Having a teenage daughter has been one of my biggest blessings in life. Having a daughter who has embraced my story and past, who has chosen to let it strengthen and enlighten her, has been mind-blowing.
I love speaking into her life. I am honored to give her the best chances I possibly can. We talk about God together, boys, beauty, pain, struggles, insecurities, self-image and so much more. But there is one thing I, alone, cannot provide for her and that is her own security in Christ. That is something that I, yes, can model personally, but ultimately she must navigate this on her own. That is not to say that I, or others, can’t pour into her.
In steps…Girls Of Grace. I heard of Girls Of Grace years ago and loved it immediately for what they stood for. This is an event, founded by Point Of Grace, for teen girls. It provides a safe environment for teen girls to gather and talk about big issues affecting them. We’ve heard it said that it takes a village to raise a child…this is a village I’d want helping me out!
If you have a teen daughter and are interested in Girls Of Grace then you’re in luck! They are coming to Nashville! February 23rd the Girls Of Grace Conference will be held at Christ Church in Nashville. I will definitely be attending with my daughter, Kass, and am so excited to hear from some amazing speakers and from Point Of Grace!
If you have a teen girl, or know one that might enjoy this conference, then I encourage you to attend!
AND…a lucky someone will be winning two tickets to the Nashville event! Just leave a comment and cross your fingers =)
