Hi Shelley~

I contacted you earlier about not being able to access Chapter 28. I can’t seem to access Chapter 20, either. I keep getting a message that reads: You are not able to access drafts. Can you maybe figure out what I’m doing wrong? Thanks so much! ~lyn

Hi Lyn,
Ta-da! The links are available for you to access on the Chapter Lesson page. You, my dear, were not doing a thing wrong. It was me, or rather my site that was wanky.
I hope you and your girl grow closer to each other and to the Lord because of this study. Would you please keep me posted?

I finally have copies of the Beautiful Girlhood, Companion Guide and Beyond Beautiful Girlhood Plus Companion Guide books. I can’t wait to get started with my tween girls and have even offered to share and work with local friends (parents) of tween girls 🙂

Thank you for the blessing of this site/blog!!!

I have been wanting to go through this book and companion guide all year and I have not found the right time to put it into our schedule. My daughter started 7th grade this year and there were so many new changes and additions to her schedule; new (and harder) homeschool curriculum, 2 youth groups, one class and a sport at the local jr high. We both have taken a long time to adjust and figure out how to get it all done. Anyway, it is now time to turn in applications for classes at our co-op for next school year. Has anyone done this with a group of girls? I see that some of the activities or questions in the companion guide are directed just to mothers and daughters. Is it doable to guide a small group of girls through this? I am thinking of doing it this way to make sure we actually fit it in. I would love some advice, especially if anyone else has done it as a group. Thanks so much.

Hi Sharon,
I have personally been involved with doing this with a small group of girls. #1. You can have the girls read the chapter before class and discuss the questions in The Companion Guide to Beautiful Girlhood #2. You read the chapter in class and do the questions in class. #3 You can have the moms read B’twixt and B’tween so they know what is going on in the class you are leading and participate at home #4. You can do the craft in class as a fun activity #5 You can have the girls memorize the Bible Verse in each B’twixt and B’tween and recite it at the opening of class.

The way our girls did it was to plan for a class every two weeks and read the chapters in class and answer the questions. We followed this time with refreshments. Moms were invited to attend as well.

Another idea is what several groups are doing around the country. They have a Beautiful Girlhood group in their church. A Lady called me from Texas and explained to me how their church did this. Mothers and Daughters appointed a night out where they would meet at church. Together they would watch as someone preformed a skit, do some craft, or listened to someone teaching the topic that they were going to discuss in the chapter. Then the mothers and daughters would break away and read and discuss the chapter on their own. Later they would rejoin the group for the Bible Study. As soon as this was over, tea and refreshments were served. This way they could enjoy the group while be taught by their own mom.

Lots and lots and lots of ideas for you Sharon! Let me know if I can help you anymore…I have tons of ideas. Keep me posted!

Hi Sharon,

We are currently doing this study in our co-op and it is working out great. Two ladies lead the discussion and the girls respond or ask questions. They read three chapters each week for homework. We also do 10-15 minutes of etiquette and have a tea party each week. Some of the girls have naturally asked their Mom’s about topics in Beautiful Girlhood.

Take care,

Although I am a young mum and my daughter is only a toddler I have been praying for something like this in my life – I want to be a proverbs 31 woman more than anything and so I am so thankful I found your site.
My Hubby heads up our church’s youth and young adults ministry so we often have tween/teen girls in our home – I’m excited and so want to thank you for making my journey as a wife and mum a little less daunting. I understand the weight of what it means to really seek to train up our kids to love the Lord and have Godly wisdom in their life. Your site is truly a God-send.
Much Love, Rachel

Hello Rachel,
Thank you for your sweet comments! Your heart to serve the Lord and glorify Him is evident. I know that there are many women, younger and older, who have not had someone to walk beside them on this journey through womanhood. For that very reason, this blog was created! It is one thing to tell you this is how you can train your daughters…it is another thing entirely for someone to offer to walk with you, cheer you on, and encourage you through the journey.

I count it a privileged to serve our Father this way!
