Last week was a big week for me for multiple reasons…
For 5 years now my husband and I have sent 1 of our daughters to a weeklong overnight camp close to our home in Texas. This year we sent ALL FOUR! As if that wasn’t huge enough, last week was also the official release of my newest devotional for tweens, You’re God’s Girl!
I’m excited to share this new resource with you because I wrote it for your girls and mine.
You’re God’s Girl includes daily devotions written directly to your girl’s heart and will help her discover God’s truth—who He made her to be, how unique and special she is, and how she fits into her world.
So do you know what I did to celebrate my empty house and new resource?
I slept. All week.
I needed it!
But if I am completely honest, I really struggled with why I wasn’t doing more to share my excitement. Every congratulatory phone call, text, tweet and post actually caused me to feel a tinge more exhausted!
Unlike when my first Devotional, For Girls Like You, was released there were no launch parties, live chats or videos. There was just a grateful, humbled and tired momma!
I felt a little guilty for feeling this way until around Wednesday when it finally dawned on me. My exhaustion and my need to recuperate are actually the beauty of this devotional—I’m a mom, raising God’s daughters, just like you, and I wrote You’re God’s Girl from a place I know well.
I know exactly what it feels like to need God’s daily guidance, restoration, strength and His wisdom.
So I celebrated the release of You’re God’s Girl by simply being His daughter. By basking in His presence and lying at the feet of my Father.
And it was perfect!
And this is exactly what I pray for you. That you would take time to be in His presence and I pray that You’re God’s Girl would be a tool that provides wisdom and guidance as you teach your girls the beauty of being His.
