For Girls Like You {Giveaway}

UPDATED with Random WINNERS:

Congrats to JHollyhock (aka Jennifer H.) and Jen Robinson

When my kids were 6, 4 and a premature newborn, I thought my hands were full.

Motherhood was so physical. My tired body was in high demand and I needed another arm or two and a super nanny.

Now that my kids are 13, 11 and 6, the physical demand has turned to an emotional one and it’s a different kind of hard.

Lately, I’ve spent a lot of my time focusing on my older children. They need my ear and shoulder, a warm hug (not in public, please) and $10 constantly.

The baby of the family is hardly a baby any more. She’s lost a tooth, can blow a bubblegum bubble and reads books allbyherself. She’s also quite sassy.  I’ve always read good books with my kids and I sensed a need to move past bedtime stories with my youngest and transition into girl time.

Recently, we started reading For Girls Like You Magazine together. I love the mission behind it:

At For Girls Like You Magazine we are dedicated to exposing girls (age 6-11) to all the things they love (travel, positive role models, creative projects, etc.) without the negative imagery and advertising that often appears in mainstream entertainment. Instead we want every article, interview, and photo to support a Christ-centered system for our young girls. Connect with them on Twitter and Facebook.

My little girl loves it! And as a mom, I feel like a resource like this helps me tell her some of the 7 things I want her to know.

Today, I’m giving away 2 packs (two winners) that include The Magabook, A Journal and a copy of the Spring 2013 magazine.
Leave a comment with your daughter’s age(s) if you’d like to be entered.

    It’s just like God to show me what I’m looking for… New reading material for my 8 yr old girl! She is devouring books and I want them to be appropriate content. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

      So blessed to hear this! I have an avid young reader and it so hard to find material that matches her level and her age! Glad you found us! :-)

    Nancy Cornwell says

    Two girls, 5 and a half (that’s important you know!) and 1. What a great giveaway! Will definitely be looking into this.

    I have one daughter, a two year old. I’ve never heard about this “For Girls Like You” magazine. I’m heading over to check it out right away!

    Sarah says

    I feel like I am in the thick of the constant physical demands of mothering four kids under 8. I was talking to my sister-in-law who has three big girls 16-20 and a little girl and a boy 3-5. She was saying how easy little kids were because they weren’t so emotionally draining (and her big girls are LOVELY–exactly how I’d love mine to turn out!). It was a little scary to think that I am doing the easy part now!

    My girls are 8, 3, and 3months.

    I remember getting a similar magazine as a tween (“Brio” maybe?) and loving it. I would love somthing similar for my big girl!

    I’m a father of 4, with 3 girls. My girls are 2, 3, and 6 with a 4 year old boy in the middle. I always struggle to find good ‘girly books’ with a positive message for girls since I didn’t grow up reading any.

    I have 6 daughters! The older 2 are out on their own, but my younger 4 are 14, 9, 8, and 5 years old. This would be a great resource as we continually strive to point them to the One whose opinion matters! :)
