In a book based on her post, Kate Conner calls us to action in Enough: 10 Things You Should Be Telling Teenage Girls. We all have teenage girls in our lives who we love, whether it’s a sister, friend, or daughter. Kate has identified 10 things these girls need to hear today from someone who loves her. Peppered with wit and laced with grace, Kate’s list tackles relevant issues like Facebook, emotions, drama, tanning beds, modesty, and flirtation. Woven into each chapter is a powerful message of worth that transcends age, and will touch the souls of women, young and old alike: You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough. A former youth-worker, wife to a college minister, and a young mom in her twenties, Conner stands squarely in generational gap, the perfect place from which to bridge it. Conner offers herself as a translator, helping you to speak your teenager’s language and equipping you with a fresh perspective from which to engage your teenage girl—one that may enable her to truly hear your heart (and your wisdom) for the first time since puberty.

My Thoughts:

I have to admit that this was a very serious, however it became a comedy at times.  The first chapter talks about how to talk to your teenage girls and the way they dress.  IT is not just important that we talk to them but it is more important that we know how to talk to them so that they don't dismiss what we are saying and think that we are just OLD!  This chapter explains that, it also talks about how we dress is our first impression with everyone and what I clothes say about us as a person.  Who we are, who we want to be now and when we grow older, and what we are looking for in life.

This is a book that I will keep handy not just to read but as a guide in helping me talk with my daughters.  I have 2, one is 10 and already starting to think she is suppose to dress like she walks the streets at night and the other is just 5.  So I plan to try this book out and use it for both of my girls and for my son that just turned 16.  Though it is targeted o how to talk to our teenage girls, we need to teach our boys that it is NOT OK to gawk at girls, whistle and make sex calls when they walk by, although it is natural and human nature for a boy or man to look at a girl/lady, he look without being rude.  I know as a lady I enjoy the fact that a man takes the time to look at me when I walk by, especially when I am looking my best.  It kind of gives me that boost that Yeah, my husband has a good catch, but I don't want nobody to stare me down and make me feel dirty when I walk by.

This book teaches us as Ladies, Young Adults, and Teenagers what we should be doing not just for us, but for God.  These are things that he would find appropriate.  I know I don't want to be known as the trailer trash or the girl who dresses like she is homeless, even though I don't have riches and money to buy the finest.  But I can still dress Modest and and have fun while doing so.  As this chapter talks about the Neon Purple Leggings, I think you can a spunky side, while still being covered and not showing the entire show.

I have ONLY given you a preview into Chapter one and trust me there is so much more in there.  If you would like to win a copy of this book and share with your teenage daughter, just follow the rafflecopter below and be entered to win your very own copy.  I can't promise much in life but I can promise that this is a helpful guide and funny read!
