Long time Pruning Princesses readers will remember that I love to share work by Nancy Rue. (Remember Mom’s Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl World? Or when I shared a lesson from the Buddy Book about Teaching Your Girl How to Appeal Your NO? Or Rue’s fiction book series for tween girls? Or from the post Learning About Beauty in a Healthy Way?). Nancy Rue has her pulse on tween girls and she wants them to love God. Perhaps you are familiar with Faithgirlz? The Faithgirlz Bible? Nancy is the author behind all the little extras in that sweet Bible designed especially for tweens. And the Bible has been updated. Check out all the new updates here.
Nancy is hoping to encourage your tween to fall in love with Jesus during this week where love and boys and crush may creep in to conversations a little too often. Today and Thursday, I will be sharing two of the ten reasons your daughter should fall in love with Jesus. You can use the mini-devotion to encourage your girl this week. You can check out the whole series here. And while you and your girl talk about Jesus and his love, maybe you will enjoy the sneak peeks into the Faithgirlz Bible that will accompany each devotion. I know you will be blessed by Nancy’s heart. Here she is (yes, on my blog!).
Hel-l-o-o-o Mothers of Mini-Women! Thanks to Laura for letting me join you all. Can’t tell you how much I appreciate ALL of you moms who are reading this. The eye-rolling and “Mo-om!” notwithstanding, you are still the most important influence in your tween daughter’s life. I hope you’ll share this with her:
For the mini-women:
Like most M-W’s, you’re probably way aware that the Valentine’s Day season is here, and you probably either love the cards, the candy, the frills – or you can’t wait for the thing to be over because it makes you so painfully aware of who DOESN’T like you! One being DOES like you. He loves you, in fact. He’s just waiting for YOU to fall in love with HIM. Why would you? In ten different posts, each one giving you a peek at a feature from the FaithGirlz Bible, we’re giving you a Reason To Fall In Love With JESUS. Here’s one (read the complete series here).
Reason #5: Because Jesus knows exactly how you feel, all the time. Other people, especially moms and dads, may tell you they do, but sometimes they just don’t. No other person can really get into your heart and get right where you’re coming from ALL the time. Jesus can. You can count on it.
February is a great month here at Pruning Princesses. (two giveaways in one month and well….I’m partnering with one of my favorite authors. Okay, maybe she is partnering with several bloggers, but still she knows my twitter name!) Nancy is sponsoring some giveaways and you and your girl(s) get to enter! She is giving away 5 copies of ZonderKidz Leatherbound Bibles to tweens or teens and 2 copies of Zonderkidz Leather bound Bibles to adult winners. There are A LOT of ways to enter this giveaway, you as a mom can enter, and your tween or teen daughter can enter too. And since some girls are not allowed on Facebook, there are ways to enter that don’t require using Facebook. I hope you win!
