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.

    My daughter is a very tender and ‘mature looking-but-not-mature inside” 11 year old. I would love to win this for her.

    I do not have a daughter, but I do have 5 nieces in Knoxville, TN that I would love to support with this publication! Emma is 10, Katie is 9, Anna is 5, Kaylee is 6 and Sarah is little bitty at 8 mo, but would love the hand me downs later! They are all children of my two sisters there and they homeschool together. I would love to win this for all of them! Girls today are faced with so many challenges and I think this is a great opportunity for them.

Upon seeing our family many ask but, nope, there are no multiples or twins, lol!…God has been so, so good! He formed our family completely through adoption! :-) II Cor 9:8; Ps 113:9

    Abby says

    My girls are 12 and 8. I’d love to find something that would steer away from unhealthy/unrealistic self-images that are promoted so flagrantly these days and find something wholesome and fun!

    That sounds like a great resource. I have two daughters, the older one is thirteen, but my little one is 7.

    Michelle says

    Thank you for this opportunity! My girls are 9 and 5. My hubby and I are so blessed. Thank you for your faithfulness, I love reading your updates. Our family just started on a homeschool journey this past year and you’ve been great encouragement in how BIG our God is!

    I really need this to help my 9 year-old with self esteem, joy and a cement of how much God loves her. Thank you.

    my youngest is also 6 and now reading on her own, and is missing her 2 front teeth – she can do some really cool tricks that way! I also have a 2 year old daughter, and 2 grown daughters. This magazine looks terrific, thanks for hosting this!

    my daughter is only 16 months old but i am also a kids minister for elementary aged kids! and i have a small group of high school girls! i love spending time with girls and showing them they don’t have to walk in the world’s ways. would love to check out this magazine!

    Christa Parent says

    My 5 1/2 year old daughter Marcie would love this book. She often feels left out because she has an older brother with some special needs and this would give her something fun to read and do but something we can do together also. Thanks for the opportunity to be entered in the draw.

    Lindsay Tice says

    My daughters are 9, 4 and 2. I would love to be able to give this to my oldest…. something that she could really use right about now. She’s been having a rough year with girls being mean at school and her two best friends are moving away this summer out of state.

    Thanks so much!

    Lisa says

    All of my girls are 6 years apart…I have a 20 year old, a 14 year old and my 8 year old…all girls ….This might be just the magazine for my youngest…giving me some new ideas on those days where I’m worn.

    Christy Thornton says

    I have two daughters ages 6 and 2. My six year old is smart, loves to read and be read to. I homeschool her and love it when she asks questions about God. Sometimes she has some tough questions but she truly has the “hunger and thirst”. I pray I am able to nurture that so she will have a wonderful relationship with our Father. In today’s world, it is so difficult to protect our little girls and the women they will become. I am always looking for great reading material that will help her learn God’s view of her and who she should become.

    JHollyhock (aka Jennifer H.) says

    I have one precious and beautiful almost 7 year old daughter in a sea of boys. She has five brothers. :-)

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you ought to
    write more about this topic, it might not
    be a taboo matter but usually people do not
    talk about such subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
