Last year I wrote a post that crashed my blog; it received more than 2 million views in less than 2 weeks. I got a lot of comments saying I was enlightened. I also got a lot of comments saying that I was a misogynist &#%#*@@$!%. So I did what any sane person would do – I wrote a book about it.
My post was called “10 Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls.” I wrote it at 2:00 am on a Sunday morning, based on my 6-year stint in youth ministry. In it, I addressed the things that my girls were struggling with that year, that month, that moment. The things that made me want to grab them by the proverbial, or literal, shoulders and shake some sense into them.
There are two books: one for adults and one written directly to teen girls. Both books cover the same list of 10 things, but the content is not identical. Both are slam-packed with truth, and both are super-fun. The Teen book has funny footnotes, illustrations, and discussion questions at the end of each chapter. It is structured well for a small group curriculum.
You can purchase the books in store or on your iPad or Nook! Pretty, pretty cool.
