Beautiful Girlhood Review & GIVEAWAY!


I am so excited about this review and giveaway.  I recently discovered Pumpkin Seed Press, and they sent me the Beautiful Girlhood Bundle to review and offered me one to giveaway!

I sat down last week to look through the books.  I can't tell you how excited I am to do this with my daughter.  The Beautiful Girlhood has short chapters that you can read together, then The Companion Guide to Beautiful Girlhood offers discussion questions, Bible activities and applications, and journal topics.  What a sweet time for mother and daughter to have together discussing girlhood and Biblical applications.

The Beautiful Girlhood covers topics such as Obedience, The Tongue, Friendships, Ambition, Trust, Responsibility, and more.  There are 33 chapters to read with your daughter.  I thought this would also be a good way to teach my daughter about having alone time with God, which is sadly something I've neglected with her.  I noticed there is a chapter called The Quiet Hour.   This chapters covers finding alone time with God!  Like I said, I'm excited to read this book with my daughter and use the companion guide to help us review and discuss it.

I also like that there is a place to journal (with journal topics) in the companion guide.  What a nice keepsake for my daughter to have years later of our time together.

There is no right or wrong way to do this study.  What would seem to work for us is to read a chapter every night then maybe the next night use the companion guide to review and discuss it.

I plan to start ours when we get to Australia.  It will get packed on my carry-on, so maybe we'll start in on the plane.

From the Pumpkin Seed Press website:
"Godly wisdom and advice await a mother and daughter who will read through these pages together. The Beautiful Girlhood Bundle contains Beautiful Girlhood and The Companion Guide to Beautiful Girlhood. Contains 32 foundational character training lessons for girls. Ages 9-13."
