WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

For many of you this month involves back to school for your kids! I can not believe it, but yesterday my youngest child started high school. You guys, I’m surrounded by BIG KIDS and I love it! I thought to celebrate back to school I’d bring my daughter, Story, on to The Happy Hour. You guys submitted questions and we answered them!

We had so much fun recording this show. Story is hilarious as usual. When she described what it’s like to be a 14-year-old girl I almost cried. She was so honest and it’s truly insightful. She answered hard questions and silly questions, and I was just one proud mama at the end.

If you too are parenting or mentoring or around teen girls, here are some great resources for you:

Follow Sissy Goff on IG and read all of her books!

Story and I will be reading the Bible together this year and we’re using this Bible. To hear more about the Young Women Love God Greatly Bible, listen HERE.

Sparrow Collective Identity Sheets
Teenagers are hit with messages from all angles about who they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to do. It seems that the more the world tries to inform them, the more confused they are. We have designed the Sparrow Teen Identity Sheets to help teens understand who God made them to be, how they are gifted and what their purpose is!

I recently ordered Story a book on prayer from friend of the show, Scarlet Hiltibidal (It’s on sale right now!!), and

Also, I want to share these letters with you. Make them your own and then email them out to your kid’s teachers. I’ll be doing that over the weekend with my kid’s teachers as well! I’ve included two letters and they are very similar. One is for elementary and one is for upper grades

{You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!}
