Secret longings and dreams, some spilling over on paper, are part of every girl's growing up experience. Author Eva Gibson has written Listening to My Heart to give journaling help to girls (ages 11-14) struggling with new, intense feelings of self discovery. Directing the girl to the Lord rather than simply encouraging a self-focused diary, the authors purpose is to guide readers into an open relationship with God as their best friend and confidant, to challenge them to spend time with Him in His Word and to reach out to family and friends.
Twelve chapters with relevant themes-from friendship to untangling emotions to discovering more about God and prayer-develop the concept of journal writing and present ideas for how to do it. Designed to be used one chapter a week for 12 weeks, each section includes pages for the girl to record her thoughts.
