Staying connected during these few critical years can vastly impact the relationship a mom has when her child becomes a full-blown teen.
Finding responsible role models today can be especially difficult if you are a tween girl, or the parent of one. In Becoming a Girl of Grace, Catherine Bird takes a close look at some of the amazing women of the Bible and the character traits they model for today’s tween girls. These women of yesterday have a lot to share with the girls of today! Dealing with mean girls and bullies, feeling left out, and learning to like oneself are not new social dilemmas. The Bible is full of examples of strong females who chose to follow God and pursue faith despite what was happening in their world and cultures.
Becoming a Girl of Grace is prayerfully and intentionally written for tween girls to share with their moms. The premise is simple—offer a way for moms and their tween daughters to dig into the Word of God together and keep the lines of communication flowing, full of engaging questions and fun activities.
• A facilitator’s guide for small group study is included in the back of the book, which includes both online and virtual options. More resources for Becoming a Girl of Grace, such as printable Scripture cards and additional conversation starters, can be found on Catherine’s Resources Page (catherinebird.net).
