For Girls Like You {Giveaway}


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.

    This looks like a great resource – and one my girls (8 and 11) would really get into! So much better than the magazines they want to buy…

    Janet G says

    My just turned 10yr old daughter (sob) would love this! She’s looking to read older books and magazines and its a struggle sometimes to find her appropriate ones that she can read. I think that this would be great for her, especially as she is the only girl in a house full of loud and rowdy boys!

Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win!

    Kristine Furman says

    I always appreciate girl time with my 10 year old daughter and my 10 year old step-daughter. It isn’t easy to find age appropriate activities for them, especially when they are in such a hurry to grow up.

    -A busy Mom of 7 trying to hang on to the last moments of my girls’ childhood…..13 is right around the corner for us….Yikes!!!
