What if your daughter's tendency to feel all the feelings is actually a good thing?
Teens and tweens are known for the way their emotions can get the best of them. It gets to the point where we often wonder if our families might be better off if these young women we love could just feel a little less. As Linda Barrick learned, these emotions play a vital role in the spiritual lives of young women, and, when they learn to focus them correctly, their feelings can be a powerful force for good in their lives, homes, and schools.
That's why Linda and her daughter Jen wrote this devotional book for teen girls. After Jen was in a traumatic car accident, she was in many ways frozen at age fifteen and completely uninhibited. That leads to Jen thinking and feeling almost all the time. Because of this unique experience, Jen's mom, Linda, got a unique glimpse into the inner world of young women, and realized that the emotions young teen girls feel are a beautiful gift. It gives them the capacity to have an unhindered, best-friend relationship with their Heavenly Father.
In this 30-day devotional for teen girls, Jen Barrick, with the help of her mom, Linda Barrick, reveals her own real-life prayers with passages from Psalms in order to speak directly to the heart of young women. Teens and tweens will learn how to cultivate a deep, emotional relationship with the God who loves them. Each day will:
- Address a different feeling and examine it in light of God's truth from a short passage of Psalms
- Affirm young women's feelings as a gift of God.
- Demonstrate how their emotions are meant to lead them closer to God
- Show them how to make their faith stronger when they use God's Word to navigate their emotions
