Hey everyone!

I'm interested in finding books that are aimed at leading youth groups, more specifically tailored to young girls. I want to find some great resources that help me to better minister to younger girls, be it bible studies or books geared to brinfing my awareness of the needs/ways to build younger girls up in their faith. If you have a certain book to swap or have some great resources to recommend, please do!

Thanks!

Nancy Rue-- Lily and Sophie series (Lily is a little younger than Sophie, my sisters read these and love them)

Shirley Brinkerhoff  - The Nikki Sheridan Series  (Great about sexual purity, adoption, etc- my personal favorite)


Robin Jones Gunn-- Sierra Jensen and Christy series (high school girl age)

 

Patricia Rushford-- Jennie McGrady series (great mysteries, couldn't put them down when I was younger)

for nonfiction anything by Andrea Stephens, she is connected with Brio by Focus on the Family and some of her books really helped me when I was in school.

 

really anything published by Focus on the Family's Brio staff is great!

Hayley DiMarco has several books for girls dealing with subjects from mean girls to purity and modesty. My 16 yo still reads them, and loans them to all of our younger girls.

There's a little book that I think is called His Princess: Love Letters From Your King that was good.

Oh that reminds me Justin Lookado also has the Dirt on series as well as the dateable series.  Both are awesome.

Vicki Courtney's Your Girl: Raising a Godly Daughter in an Ungodly World was very helpful to me when my daughter was in her early teens.
