Do That?

 

I really couldn’t believe God would ask me to do that.

It couldn’t be more obvious it was Him doing the asking though.

For the past few years I had dreamed of nothing but going to a Christian college, getting my degree in Christian counseling and marrying a pastor. White picket fences, small house with children and a dog – my American dream.

Now, college move in was just weeks away. My roommate was assigned and I was ready to go. But first my family was taking a vacation…half way across America. From Iowa to North Carolina, we were heading to the big city of Charlotte. For those of you unfamiliar with road trips of that length…we’re talking 16 hours of me, Dad, Mom and my little brother.

To help time to pass; I threw in random reading material, includingΒ a magazine from Last Days Ministries. This ministry was founded by Keith Green, who had recently died in an plane crash.

As we started the long trek, the reading began. One article in particular stood out to me. “If You Want to Be Great in God’s Kingdom, Learn to Be a Servant” This title grated against my heart. I wanted to be in ministry; what I thought ministry was. I wasn’t so sure about the servant part.

Once we arrived in Charlotte, we attended a service with James Robison preaching. His topic: becoming a servant. Really God? Two times in two days? I responded to a call to come forward to become God’s servant. I wasn’t really sure what that meant. I did know it meant a change in my heart.

A few days later, I opened the magazine once more to discover an ad on the back page: “Come and Serve at Last Days Ministries”. The picture didn’t have one thing appealing to me. The big red shed, the mass of hippish people (come on…it’s the ’80’s) and a ranch looking back drop. I couldn’t ignore the thump in my heart. This was what being a servant was going to mean for me.

I said “yes” to God and have never regretted one day of that decision.

“Yes” to learning His way instead of the college way.

“Yes” to moving nearly a thousand miles from home.

“Yes” to a new way of doing His work.

The blessings in my life far outweigh any heartache I felt that summer as I called my college and removed my registration, the pain I experienced as I told my serious boyfriend and the fear I went through going into the unknown.

When we say “yes” to God, and model and teach our girls to say “yes” to God, we open doors for God to move in and through us in ways we couldn’t even dream up ourselves.

I am so excited that Lysa TerKeurst and her daughter Hope have given us a resource to encourage our girls to say “yes” to God – “When Young Women Say “Yes” to God“. Lysa has generously given three copies of her new book to be given away today!

To enter to possibly win one of these books, click on comments below (or head to www.LynnCowell.com) and share what area do you pray your girl will say “yes” to God! And if you’re on the run, just say, “I’m in!”

    Hi Lynn,

    I’m in!! Thank you

    1. I’m in as well πŸ™‚

    2. Diane w in NC says:

      Thanks Lynn,

      I’m in for a daughter and daughter -in-law

  2. My daughter is 12 already! Aah! Feeling the urgency to instill so much wisdom into her ….and soon! But feeling like such a poor model and so ill equipped…

  3. Thank you Lynn for this offering. I have 5 daughters from 12-16 months. We need continued encouragement, and challenge in this present age.

    1. Wow!
      Kim, we have 5 daughters too! Just the ages are quite different! πŸ™‚
      Mine range from 19 years to 18 month old twins πŸ™‚
      I echo your prayers!

  4. I want in too!! πŸ™‚ Thanks

  5. I have 2 daughters and I pray they will say yes to GOD IN EVERY area of their
    Life and that others will see Jesus in them!

  6. Thankful that at age 9, my daughter Faith has a heart to not hear any words that are not honoring to God! I love that she feels strongly that people should not use God’s name in vain! I’m praying that she will continue to say yes to God in all areas of her life and that even now she will run after God and pursue a life lived for him each and every day we get to live for Him!

  7. I have, and have read about four times, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God. i LOVE this book and the encouragement. I can honestly say it has changed my life. I pray that my daughters say yes to God simply in following His will for their life. It is so easy to get bogged down in worldly things, but God has better for them.

    Would love to win this and do it as a study with my girls.

  8. Loved your wise mom talk at Hearts at Home. My daughter is 7 and I’m in!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Welcome Wendy! So glad you like the Hearts talk! Learning to be wise together…

  9. I’m In! I have two little girls and I pray that they will be open to receiving Christ’s love in their hearts as they get older.

  10. My heart desire is that my daughter come to the point of stop listening to everybody and listen to what Jesus is speaking to her and realize that life is full of opportunities when she put Jesus in the center of every decision that she makes pertaining to her life. She’s currently 16 years old and because of listening to other people she is currently in the Foster Care System. I longed for the day that I will get to see her face-to-face and really talk about things that caused her to turn to the life that she think it is so meaningful. I know there is a lot of healing that needs to be in placed yet I’m big enough to do whatever Jesus has for her life and my life.

  11. I pray my daughter will say YES to Jesus being everything to them, So that they will not need people’s approval to live a life of God-confidence!
    And THANK YOU for this =)

  12. Pam Morris says:

    My daughter is sixteen years old and is currently not walking with the Lord. She has an older brother and younger sister who are walking with the Lord. Our hearts desire is to see her make some positive changes and allow the Lord to work in her heart. I pray that she will say Yes to God with her whole heart.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Beautiful prayer, Pam! With her whole heart!

  13. I’m in! This is my prayer for my daughter, that she follows God’s will for her life.

  14. Lynn Graham says:

    I’m single. don’t have any children. so I’m in.

  15. I’m in!!!
    I pray my daughter will say “yes” to God when it comes to how she treats others, and how she allows others to treat her. Thank you!

  16. I pray that she will surround herself with Godly friends and that she will say “yes” to the leading of God of her to those friends…

  17. Jessi Smith says:

    I’m in! I enjoyed hearing you at Hearts at Home last weekend! Thanks for letting God use you!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Yeah Jessi! Hearts was such a blessing to me! Welcome!

  18. Beth Derango says:

    Sounds awesome, and something I would like to share with my daughter Hope!!! Thanks

  19. I’m in and very thankful to have taken your class at Hearts at Home!!! You have blessed me and given me tools for my 12 yr old daughter!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Thanks Lisa! I’m so glad you came and that the class was practical in helping you! Welcome πŸ™‚

  20. I’m in. Having my girls stop and listen for God’s desire is so hard in this loud world.

  21. Sandee Kincaid says:

    Would love this for my 18 year old graddaughter facing some life altering decisions as she prepares to go off to college next fall.

  22. Lesley DeVaughn says:

    I am in! I have 2 daughters and teach youth girls! This study will be wonderful.

  23. I want my girls to realize that God wants them more than any earthy person could. I want them to have a passion for Christ and to learn the HE is all they need and anything extra in this earthy world is a blessing. Needing to show them how much they are loved by their heavenly Father.

  24. Please enter me in your drawing! πŸ™‚ Would love to get this for my daughter. The Lord really is doing amazing things in her life and calling her in a special way. She’s wanting to study bible/missions in college…..just loving what He’s doing. This book would help her all the more as she says YES to HIM. Thanks so much – enjoy your blog!!

  25. My daughter is 21 years old and is a child of God and I know that her heart’s desire is to please God, so I believe that this book will be a great encouragement to her.

  26. Our daughter is finishing her freshman year in college and feels led to change to a Christian school next year to pursue a degree in worship leading/vocal music. Our prayer is that she will truly listen to God and His desires for her and follow His leading and not her own. We also pray that she does everything with love.

  27. I’m in!! A group of ladies at our church did “When women say Yes to God” last year. Would love for my daughter to have a copy of this version!

  28. Tish McNeill says:

    I have 2 daughters, 15 and 10 years old, and we have recently started doing devotions together at bedtime and I have seen them both grow so much in the past month. I would love to have one of these books to use during our devotion time. My prayer for both my girls are that they would stand strong on God and in His word. I am trying really hard to teach my girls they don’t have to experience what the world tries to make look appealing. I tell friends all the time, “the world will not take my girls without a fight”! I am trying to teach them it is ok to be different.

    Thanks for the emails and devotions! I Pray God Blesses you!

  29. I have three daughters all together: 22, 12, and 8. Up until four years ago, I used to pray that my daughters would live to serve God. And then, it struck me that the better prayer would be for them to love God more than anything else. By putting Him first and foremost in their hearts, everything else would have to fall into place.

  30. So blessed to have 2 workshops with you at Hearts at Home. I’m so excited to be doing our “Breakfast and Bible” time since I’ve come home!! I’ve been praying so hard that she says “YES” to God’s in all directions of her life. The part I’m most focused on is her saying “Yes” and having friends who will also say “Yes” to Him. (I’ve already talked about the bullseye with her)

  31. My daughters are almost 16 and 10. I pray that whatever God calls them to do, wherever He calls them to go, they will have the ears to hear and the heart to say “yes”.

  32. I have two daughters, 13 and almost 15 years old. I’m thankful they are open to God and reading the Bible together. However, my prayer is that God would move in their hearts to love God first and foremost to seek Him instead of their own desires.

  33. My daughter is 14 and has already been affected by many hurts in this world… I want her to not just know Jesus, but experience Him and the importance of seeking Him daily and to know that His love is the deepest and most perfect love she will ever know!

  34. My daughter is only 9 1/2 months, but I want to begin to teach her NOW about the Truths of God and His Word. We are at a transition point in our family, and I need to learn to say “Yes” no matter what the outcome may be.

  35. This is the wish I have for my granddaughters that they will follow the Lord!!! I try to let them know whenever I can to rely on the Lord and ask for His wisdom and guidance when they are unsure if they feel something is not right!!! Because usually it isn’t and it isn’t the way the Lord wants them to go!

  36. My prayer for my daughter is that she says yes to God’s leading in her life. Whatever and wherever that might be. I have been telling my children for the last few years ~ the safest place to be is in the centre of God’s will.
    Very excited to read this new book!
    Thank you Lynn for your encouragement to raise godly daughters!

  37. Donna Maddox says:

    I teach Sunday School 11-12th grade girls and constantly pray for the to LISTEN to God… Several of “my girls” need a copy of this book! Thinking maybe all of my Seniors for graduation gift?

  38. I have 5 granddaughters that I pray know that Jesus is Lord of their life and that they can trust Him to lead and guide them in all they do for all their days. I know that their mothers love the Lord and I pray that these teachings may enter their hearts and bear much fruit. The world is so tough and we need to give our children all the armor we can……… the best armor of all is the Word of God. This sounds like a powerful book that will minister to our young girls as they become women of God.

  39. Jennifer Rosenbaum says:

    I’m in!!!!

  40. My daughter is almost 17…all her life she has wanted to become a Veterinarian’s Asst. There are some doors being opened for her to work with children w/ special needs at a therapeutic riding facility. I pray that she will seek the Lord’s will…that she will not be afraid of stepping out into new territory and giving it her all.

  41. Lori-Kim Phinney says:

    for my girls in youth group.

  42. Hello,
    I have one daughter and my prayer is that she will learn to love herself, others and above all to know the leading of the Holy Spirit… πŸ™‚

  43. I pray that my daughter will say yes to the Lord so that she will see how much she is worth.

  44. Marta Louise Mozzott says:

    I’m praying for my soon to be 12 yr old daughter to say YES to God in the area of her giving her life to Christ.

  45. Loretta Lineback says:

    I pray for my daughter, daughter in law and grand daughters. I want to equip them to be young women of God and to value theirselves as much as he does. Amen!

  46. Courtney Lynn says:

    I’m in. My sister and I are the leaders of a young adult ministry, and I know that this book would bless any of the teenage girls in the group!

  47. I’m in for a friends 3 daughters ages 12-19!!

  48. Alicia Inzer says:

    My children range in age of 10 yrs to 17 months. I see the urgency to instill in them the commands of the Lord. I would love to win this πŸ™‚

  49. Allison May says:

    My prayer is for my two teenage daughters surrender fully to the Lord, allow the Holy Spirit to work in them and be confident and trust Him to receive the abundant life He promises.

  50. I have a 9 year old daughter. We do pray every morning for the husband she will someday have, as God already has him picked out for her.

    I am in…..anything to help my daughter’s spiritual journey stronger!!!

    Thank you so much for give us resources for our daughters!~

  51. I pray that my daughter understands that She is made perfectly the way God wanted, God loves her more than even us as her parents, that she deserves the best in a man and much much more

  52. I’M IN!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Judi Rozelle says:

    My daughter is 16 and I pray all the time that she says ‘Yes’ to following God in all she does. She has such a great heart but struggles daily with making wise decisions.

  54. My prayer for my 15 year old daughter is that she will continue to follow God and His leading throughout her life. That her heart’s desire will be to follow the path He has for her.

  55. I’m praying that my daughter says Yes! to God at every opportunity and in every way.

  56. robin henry says:

    Im in please β™₯

  57. I would love a book like this to encourage me as well as my daughter. She is such an example already to her friends and the people around her. I only hope to be more of the example she needs.

  58. I pray my daughters say “yes” to God when making decisions regarding college, a future husband, and whatever He calls her to. Also that she’ll answer the most important question (the one regarding her salvation) with a great big “YES”!

  59. Tanya Hunter says:

    I am in! I have a strong willed 14yr old and a vibrant 5 yr. old daughters. I pray for more old daughters purity and my 5 year old heart to always stay so sweet. Thanks!

  60. I have two girls…21 and 13. I pray everyday for them to grow spiritually more close to God. I pray for there daily walk to be God driven. And for them to surround themselves with Godly friends to encourage them to do the right things.

  61. Paula Ptomey says:

    I’m in. I need it for my daughter who is 14. We are going through some rough patches already.

  62. I’m in – would love to share withy daughter.

  63. Thank you for sharing. This book sounds great. I have two daughters ages 15 and 5. Saying yes is hard sometimes, especially when lead out of our comfort zones.

  64. Lynessa Rissell says:

    I pray daily that God will show my daughter that what she is doing will only harm her in the long run. She will be 21 in April and has been doing things she shouldn’t be doing. I pray that He will keep her safe and I pray that I never get the phone call that she’s been in a serious accident because of her choices.

    I am in and would love to win this book for her as well as my 17 year old daughter who is the total opposite….the only thing I can think of that is different is my oldest lived with her father who was in her life and allowed her to do whatever she wanted while the father of my youngest wasn’t in her life and she was brought up by my current husband and I.

  65. I still consider myself to be young (25). I have been an EMT since I was 21 but I know the Lord has been wanting me to stay at home with our little girl and not go back to work. While I have stayed at home the last two years I am not going to lie I have thought about going back to work, it has been a temptation that while not bad it deffinately isn’t what the Lord wants me to do. My certifications are up for renewal this month and I am giving it all to the Lord and not renewing my certificates so that I can’t go back. I can honestly say that since I made that decision last week, we have had numerous answers to our prayers and I truly feel it is because I said yes to the Lord. I would love to read win a copy of this book! Thanks fo much for giving some away! Let go and let God!

  66. First, Thank you so much for this offer… I am a football coach’s wife… and we have had a couple of struggles of having to relocate every year, and it’s happening again. I know when one door closes, God opens another one… but sometimes we need to be reminded that God knows what He is doing… I have to say Yes, and Let Go and Let God… I know we will get through this, and us as women we have to learn to keep on moving. I would love this book as an extra encouragement, to know God isn’t done with us yet!

  67. I saw you at hearts to home and can not wait to do the revolutionary love books when my little girl turns 10!

  68. My prayer is that my daughters say yes to a Intimate love relationship with
    God. That is saying “I am all in!” my daughters are 9&13

  69. I said yes to God when I excepted Him in my heart…On Halloween night. That was scarey for me. especially coming from background of abuse as a child. When your mom left at the age of 3 years old. I was afraid of God all I could think of was my real dad. But I trusted God and excepted Him. And today I fully rely on him in my life now. And going through brain cancer I need God more now,

  70. Pam Garneer says:

    I pray my daughter Ashley who has been dealing with fertility issues for over 6 years and now her husband is getting ready to start dialysis treatment for a renal disease..praying she can see God’s hand in their lives and His greater plan for her life..Praying God touches them this summer as they try fertility treatment once more…

  71. I’m in. I have two girls 8 & 9. Thank you for this opportunity. God bless you!

  72. I have taught my girls to say prayers constantly via example. Like you are in a parking lot looking for a parking place. “Dear Lord, please guide me to an appropriate parking place.” “Thank you, Lord for this great parking spot!” I pray without ceasing everyday about everything, especially what I know I will have trouble with, or what my girls are struggling with. But my main prayers is that the Lord will rule in their hearts about right and wrong and be with them in their daily walk.

  73. Jane Tjarks says:

    I pray that my daughter will say “yes” to God when she heads to college!

  74. Shawnna Smith says:

    Oh I’m in alright! And with my whole heart for the sweet beautiful girls that the Lord is so graciously giving me the honor to teach, love and show them that they are daughters of the King and he loves them more than anyone ever will and has a fabulous plan for their life!
    I’m feeling sure this book will be a great treasure!

  75. Mrs J Gallagher says:

    Lynn, I’ve been getting your emails, and have been encouraged ! Thanks !
    I hope to win a book. : )
    Thanks !

  76. Shawndell Gleese says:

    I’m in! πŸ™‚

  77. I am Executive Director of a life-affirming pregnancy support center. This book would be a great addition for our library shelf about godly values and life choice for women.

  78. Im in! Let the Lord keep you wonderful ladies been a vessel for Him ! what an honor =0)

  79. Count me in too! I have 2 gals ages 17 & 20. I also teach teen girls at church and I pray I have influenced them enough to make a difference!

  80. Our daughter as well as all our daughters need as much encouragement they can get! It is through His Word and books like these that we can help them to be all that God wants them to be. I’m in!

  81. Debbie Owen says:

    I pray that she will continue to read the Bible and ask questions…the best way to learn.

  82. I want my daughters to yes to God in their words & actions. I want them to say no to the worldly ways & yes to His ways.

  83. Vernetta Marra says:

    My daughter is awesome and giving and a true believer in God at age 12 she has even took a vow of purity. All I want is her to follow his path she is on and not let the influences of sin invade her beautiful soul.

  84. Im in……my biggest desire for my daughter and granddaughter is that they will give their heart to God.

  85. The adult version of this book completely transformed the way I live… I do hope, as you said in your blog that my living a life that says “yes” to God inspires my 14 year old daughter to do the same. I pray that she becomes a young woman who seeks to partner with God in whatever He is doing around her. That in so doing, she would truly be His ambassador on earth – allowing heaven to touch earth wherever she goes!

  86. Hi Lynn, I have a daughter who is graduating in 2 1/2 months and my mamma heart is full. She so needs encouragement. My husband and I are in ministry, he is a senior pastor and I am his side kick ( as his wife). She, along with my son, have been smothered with Jesus all their lives and although it is good I believe she is struggling with her faith to make it her own at this point in her life. I would love for her to read this book and be encouraged by it before she leaves for college in the fall. She doesn’t know what she wants to do so we have been doing a lot of praying and doing our best to guide her. Thank you Lynn for offering this. Blessings to you and your ministry!

  87. Wendy Schwartz says:

    Love your wisdom! I pray that my daughter always has the courage to be the person God made her to be!!

  88. Learning to lean into God and say, “yes” daily; then sharing those testimonies and lessons learned. Doing life together!

  89. I’m in…my daughters are in the preteen and teen years and unlike me at their age I want more than anythingfor them to say yes to God instead of yes to the world

  90. Christine T. says:

    I pray that my daughters will know how precious they are to God and that they will wait and not settle for anything (or anyone) less than His best for them. Having teen and “tween” daughters keeps me on my toes and on my knees. I really appreciate books like these to help me raise them to be the young women God designed them to be.

  91. I am the single mother of a 16-year-old daughter. I have tried my best to lead her on the right path in her life through homeschooling, faith teaching, and keeping an open line of communication about everything, and I do mean everything. As hard as I’ve tried (and many times felt like I’ve failed miserably), I know that God is the only one who truly knows the path that she should be on and I pray that her heart and mind are always open to Him and that she says ‘yes’ each time He takes her hand and shows her the way to go.

  92. I have two daughters, ages 13 and 15. I pray that they will say Yes to God in every area of their lives. I know they are in difficult times and being a teenager has more difficulties that ever. This book would be so helpful for my daughters and I know it would be helpful for me too. I’m in!!

  93. Molinda Bailey says:

    Our daughter is 10 years young, she is strong, beautiful and has a huge heart. As she coninues to grow deeper with the Lord, we want her to always say “Yes Lord” β™₯ Sometimes what God intends for our life wasn’t what we planned or what we were told to do like complete college. We want her to always follow God’s call no matter what man says. So, Count me In!!

  94. We seem to struggling with our daughter quite a bit lately. (She is almost 13) She has always been a great student and athlete, and also involved in her youth group at church as well. However, she seems to be struggling with some things lately, and unfortunately she isn’t willing to talk with me much. I just pray that she isn’t losing focus on what truly matters, and that she turns to Him for direction. I would love a copy of this book as I believe we both would gain so much from it.

  95. Emily Spencer says:

    I’m in!! Thanks

  96. I have a granddaughter this is almost 12 that I would love to share it with, or possibly a small group study with some girls at our church. That would be awesome!

  97. “Yes” to his marvelous plan for her life…in every area!

  98. I pray that my daughters will say “Yes” to Jesus wholeheartedly in all areas of their lives, letting the Lord be very first in everything!

  99. My daughter is 22, still lives at home, just graduated college with a double major Business Management/ Human development degree and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Christian Counseling. She is a wonderful Christian example and mentors a lot of younger girls. My prayer for her that she will find an awesome Christian man that she can compliment with her ministry and together they can win people to the Lord. These young girls need all the encouragement they can get! I’m in!!!!

  100. Kristina D says:

    I have two daughters ages 9 and 11. I pray that they will open their hearts and say yes to God in every area of their lives. I pray that they will have hearts for God and want to serve Him. I pray that they will be shining lights so others won’t have to question if they love Him. Praying that His light will shine through them so others can see Him.

  101. My husband is a youth minister. We have a wonderful young lady graduating this year that would greatly benefit from Lysa’s book. She is strong in her faith, but leaving home for the first time to attend college. I think this would be a great encouragement to her.

  102. Helen Lin says:

    I want my girl to say to God from her heart: yes, Father God help me to spend my time knowing you well ; truly having a personal relationship with you that I can call you , “Abba”. Please help me to be fast in obeying you and to lean on you and praise you under all circumstances.

  103. My daughters are 11 and 18…our lives have had much destruction and pain, so I pray that God brings healing and restoration. I pray they seek the Lord with all their heart and find the perfect peace and comfort that only He can give. I also pray they will learn to forgive and know how much they are loved. I’m in. Thank you for sharing your gift and wisdom with all of us!

  104. Erin Tyler says:

    I pray that our 7 year old daughter grows to value herself as a daughter of Christ, and not concern herself with how the world values her.

  105. Alison Jordan says:

    I have 2 daughters and I pray they will say yes to God about growing up to be young ladies that love the Lord with all their heart and their mind and all their soul.

  106. My daughter is only two, but her Daddy and I pray for her everyday and talk to her about God. She knows that he heals ‘owies’ and prays for others when they are sick. I pray that she says yes to God at a young age and holds him close until that day that she says YES!

  107. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    My Holly is 13…survivor of a heart/lung defect and four open heart surgeries. She is “normal!” Praise God! My prayer is to raise her to have a heart for God and to always share His testimony…

  108. I would love to have a copy of this book. I have a 12 year old daughter and a 14 year old daughter. I also work at a primary school and I see daily what challenges young girls go through and it breaks my heart. As a growing Christian myself I would love for my girls to be good role models of this broken world we live in. I have taught my girls that we have to focus on Jesus and not on what this world has to offer.

  109. Jodi Swirczek says:

    I love the encouraging words of the Proverbs Ministry girls! You are amazing! I’m in! πŸ˜‰

  110. I pray she says “yes” to what is right in God’s eyes. πŸ™‚

  111. Lynn- I pray my girls say yes to God in all areas of their life. I pray they stay strong in their faith as they go through middle and high school and not follow the crowd just to fit it.

  112. I’m a young woman! This sounds like an awesome opportunity. It’d be an amazing opportunity to share with my friends as well… Not to mention with the sweet younger girls I volunteer with! Count me in πŸ™‚

  121. Mary Jannett says:

    I would so love to win one of these copies. I enjoyed visiting with a dear friend of mine on the back deck last weekend. We enjoyed our time together so much. The conversation is always so wonderful, but something amazing happened in the midst of luncheon….. we ended up praying together and she received Christ as her personal savior. I think this would be a great inspiration for her new walk with the Lord!

  122. I want my daughter to say yes to God and listen for his direction.

  123. My prayer for all 9 of my daughters is that they have a servant’s heart.

  124. I have 3 daughters, ages 4,6 & 20. My hearts desire is for each
    of them to say yes to following Jesus and make Him top
    priority. College has been a huge distraction for my oldest. It can
    be heartbreaking for a parent . However, I know that she has a
    personal relationship with Him. I’m trusting that the Holy Spirit will
    convict and she will respond positively! I know that God is in control
    and I’m trusting in Him!

  125. I’m in!!! Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous book.

  126. April Smith says:

    Hi Lynn, I ‘m in. As soon as I saw this post on FB. This sounded like a tool God could use in my life , especially in this transition and waiting period coming straight out of college. And I want to learn more of what it means to be that ” Yes Girl” as I stand in the waiting period learning to follow with a constant faith, no matter the emotion. April

  127. April Smith says:

    I know also that I’m not a mother but I am someones daughter. I just turned 23 and will be 24 in April. I could definitely use the encouragement. I also know that God has been challenging me in what it truly means to say yes. And when I saw this post. I so connected with what little I read. I want to learn also how to be open even things are not how I planned. Therefore , I’m in.

  128. April Smith says:

    I’m not really sure how many posting you could make but I also relate so much to the transitions. I feel like this my story with Cumberland. This is where I attended college. I wanted to transfer but God kept me there. It was definitely a season of learning what it means to say yes when things don’t make sense at all. I don’t regret one bit of my journey but at the same time in the transition. I feel like I’m back at the question again” What now?” I know that you don’t know me personally but I would like to win this book because I feel like God could use it as a tool of encouragement. Especially because of where tons of transitions have came from my grandma dying last December to my sister getting married. I want to learn what it means to say yes even when your life feels like a circle. I don’t want to live on my fear. That is why I’m in and why I feel this could be a good source.

  129. Susan Rodriguez says:

    I pray that my daughter will allow God to be her first true love and that she would come to know Him at an early age!

  130. I have a nine year old that is so excited about the lord she can’t wait to be baptised, she an I are growing so much in Christ:-) I will need a ton of these sort of book very soon, so am collecting now . Thanks I’m in

  131. I pray my 17 and 18 year old daughters say yes to God no matter what the next step is. All of their lives- yes.

  132. I have 3 young daughters and am terrified of raising them in this broken world, especially the middle and high school years. I pray that they will stay true to themselves and remember who they are as a child of God and not give in to the pressures of the world. This book would be great to have!

  133. Candace Loyd says:

    I look forward to saying yes to whatever God leads me to do! I’m in!

  134. I only have boys at home, but teach a teenage girls’ Sunday School class at church. I’d love to read this book with them! πŸ™‚

  135. I have no girls of my own yet, but I do have a little sister who could definitely benefit from Lysa’s book. Young women can never have too much guidance. πŸ™‚

  136. I have two daughters in high school who face many many decisions in the next few years. I pray that they will choose to listen FOR God and listen TO him as he shares His plans for their future with them.

  137. Both of my daughters are in college. Both are wanting to teach highschool. My youngest has decided with our Pastors first sermon of the year, to use the sermon and “Go deeper with God “. My oldest is more spiritually mature than I was at that age. She has decided that she wants to go by the saying that she wants to be so into God that the guy that wants her has to go through God to get to her. I am so proud of them both.

  138. Camila gg says:

    I am having trouble making my daughter be more connected to God. I would love to win the book so it can open a path for us to seek God together.

  139. I’m in! I want my younger sister to say yes to God in whatever way He calls her to. πŸ™‚

  140. I have a grandaughter who will be 15 next week. I pray she will learn to hear God’s voice and seek his will for her life.

  141. My prayer has always been and continues to be that she will walk in the very center of God’s will for her life. In other words, I hope that she will always say yes to God and walk away from the distractions and entanglements of the world. They are numerous, loud, enticing, and blatantly in our faces at every turn.

  142. I have two daughters, 12 and 9. When I hear the statement, “saying “Yes” to God,” I always think of a beautiful, simple song by Jana Alayra that my girls learned when they were little…
    “Jesus said “Yes”, Jesus said, “Yes”, Jesus said, “Yes” to the Father… I can say “Yes”, I can say “Yes”, I can say “Yes” to Him too!”
    So I pray for my daughters to have an attitude of “not my will, but Thine,” just like Jesus, saying Yes to Him in everything.
    Thank you Lynn and Lysa!

  143. Yes, I’m in; not only for my own daughter, who is a junior in college, but also my Sunday School (5th & 6th grade) girls!

  144. Yes, I’m in; not only for my own daughter, who is a junior in college, but also my Sunday School (5th & 6th grade) girls! Thank you!

  145. My daughter is 14. She accepted Jesus in her life 3 years ago. My prayer for her daily is dealing with all the sinful and negative issues she runs across in school and the media each day. I pray for got to guide her and strengthen her faith.

  146. My daughter is 14. She accepted Jesus in her life 3 years ago. My prayer for her daily is dealing with all the sinful and negative issues she runs across in school and the media each day. I pray for God to guide her and strengthen her faith.

  147. Lynn, I’m in and thanks for the opportunity. Would love to have this book to possibly share with my daughter who is 8. I also work with delinquents boys and girls, and I can’t talk “religion” to my clients due to policy. However I’m always talking to them about choices and self respect, self esteem, and empathy for others….sounds like topics for a great bible study group, huh? lol if only I could. So I just have to be crea tive in sharing Jesus with them.

    1. Barbara Dotson says:

      I’m In!!!!!

  148. Samantha Trueblood says:

    Lynn, Thank you for this opportunity. I love her books! My daughter is 6. I pray for my daughter to always wait on God…wait for God to fill her desires of her heart, wait on God to help her see who her True Love is in Him, wait for God to provide her with the love of her life, wait for God to show her what direction in life He wants her to take, wait to make her first kiss to be with her husband, wait for God to reveal his plans for her in every aspect of her life.

  149. My prayer for my daughter is that she will say ‘yes’ to leaning in close and standing strong for Him in her public school environment; that she will say ‘yes’ to following hard after Him even when the pull of the crowd chooses the opposite direction; that she will say ‘yes’ to waiting for Him to reveal and roll out His plans for her life as she walks through her high school years.

    Thank you Lynn, Lysa, and Hope!

  150. I’m in! I have 5 daughters and I am praying that they say yes to God.

  151. Would love to win it

  152. I pray that my two girls will say yes to Gods plan for their life early on and learn that means many times they will not feel a part of their peer group.

  153. My prayer for my daughter is that she would say “Yes” to seeking and listening to God’s voice and will for her life and not the expectations others may place on her being that she is a P.K. At ten years old, she has already begun to experience comments and pressure to be a certain way.

  154. My girls are now 30,27,and 25. I have prayed everyday for them to grow and be God loving women. God has blessed me by answering that prayer. Now as a grandparent, and leader of our womens ministry, I am continually lifting up in prayer our mothers. Their challenges are so big and they need the encouragement to stand strong for Christ. Thanks so much for this ministry, your studies, and blogs.

  155. Nichole Wolland says:

    I have 2 girls, 9 & 5. I am praying that they both listen to God and follow HIs plan for their lives, not mine, my husband’s or anyone elses’s.

  156. Praying my 15 year old daughter allows God to shape her and not others opinions.

  157. I’m in please. I would love to read this with my 15 yr old daughter

  160. Callie McDiffett says:

    I would actually love this book for my two nieces. I have only boys. My sister and her family are not involved in a church. My nieces believe in God but I haven’t found a good way to really engage them. They are old enough to be making major decisions and I have been looking for a way to help guide them in those decisions. I’m in!!

  161. I have 2 daughters, I too pray they say yes to God in everything they do.

    Thanks for this opportunity. Can’t wait to read this book.

  162. I pray that my daughter will choose to live her life with dignity, grace and integrity. I am in. Thank you!

  163. Alison Davis says:

    Lynn, I am a single mom of a beautiful 11yr old girl who loves the Lord. I know I am heading into some challenging years. I did not grow up in a Christian home. My parents have both died and I live far away from family. I know God has big plans for my daughter and me! I desire her to become allllllll that God created her to be!! Im in!!

  164. Cheri Engle says:

    Thanks so much for doing this! I have 3 daughters, ages 24, 18, and 13! Not only do I have my daughters but, I have the privilege of challenging other parents daughters!
    My hearts desire for my own girls, as well as these other precious girls is that they love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind, and that that love pours out on others! God bless!!!

  165. Cynthia Quiroga says:

    I just want her to say “yes” to God in whatever area He speaks to her. Singing, showing compassion, patience. He has her best interest at heart every time. I try to lead her in the best I can, but my vision can be blurry, God’s never is.

    Thanks for having the giveaway.

  166. Linda Phillips says:

    I have 4 daughters (and 1 son) and my hope is for them to simply hear His voice and desire to follow Him.

  167. Barbara Kingsolver says:

    I would live for both of my daughters to live and trust God’s way whole heartedly.

  168. Jen McLaughlin says:

    We have been blessed with 5 girls…would love to say 6…God willing, of course, and would love a copy of this book!!! Thanks!!!

  169. Carol Bock says:

    I want girls to learn to say “yes” to God as her very best friend

  170. I have a 12 year old daughter who loves Jesus. I’d love to share this book with her as she sets out on the teen years. I’m in.

  171. I don’t have kids, but I do have a 19 year old sister and I work with the the senior high age youth girls at my church. There is so much hurt, pain, and brokenness among these young women and it breaks my heart. I pray that they follow God’s path with them sooner, rather than later like I did. I pray that they have the courage to do what God is calling them to do, that they will tell the world “I am better than this”.

  172. I have been blessed with two daughters. One is nineteen and about 3 years ago she surrendered to be a mssionary. I hope she always listens to God for direction. She knows that God could call her at any moment or He could wait till she is 50. My second daughter is 12 and is very strong willed (like most heading to the teenage years). I want her to learn to hear God. To be still and feel His presence. Thank you for ofering free material.

  173. Christy Smith says:

    I’m in!!! My daughter is 13 getting ready to start high school next year and I just want her to staystrong in her walk with the Lord and be a teen after God’s own heart!

  174. I have a 10 yr old daughter that has yet to decide to surrender her life to Christ. My prayer is that she sees that living a Christian life isn’t “boring, lame or a kill joy” but that it truly is a fun, loving, joyful life! Praying he can stand strong against peer pressure and live a life devoted to Him!

  175. Hello! I’m definitely in, and thanks for the opportunity!
    I have an almost-17 year old daughter who is lacking confidence in her walk with Christ and, consequently, listens to lies. However, I also have two little girls, ages 5 and 3, who are watching, listening to, and learning everything their big sister does, as well as what their mommy does, too. We are four of “God’s girls” who need guidance!
    Thank you, Lynn, Lysa, and Hope!

  176. I’m in!!! Thank you for this awesome book giveaway! I know it is going to reach so many tender hearts!

  177. Kaitlyn Shomaker says:

    I’m in!

    I hope that someday my girls will say yes to God in everything, including turning to God in prayer rather than worrying about the increasing stresses of life: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” (Philippians 4:6 –NLT)

  178. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of this book~would love to share it with our group of young women on Wed night, most of them from broken homes

  179. Praying my 18 yr old daughter will really grasp whatever plans He has for her future & her heart, whatever that means. I pray that she gives her YES wholeheartedly & trusts in His offers!

  180. I pray that my girls (and boys) will say “yes to God” by remaining pure in all areas of their lives.

  181. Thank you for sharing this book and the opportunity to win a copy. We have a group of middle school girls at our church on Wed night that could really benefit from this book~

  182. I don’t have any kids of my own yet. Hopefully someday God willing, but for now my prayer is for the girls who are my youth group girls that they would learn to see themselves as God sees them. My prayer is that they grow to have a great relationship with their mothers and fathers and that they have an even more special relationship with God. My heart is for them to know the importance of the relationships that they keep or don’t keep and how to tell the difference in the ones that they may need to break away from.

  183. Val Kuenkele says:

    Hello! Thank you for this opportunity. As a single mom of three, I pray that I am consistently pointing my kids to God. My oldest daughter is 18 and autistic, my son and daughter are 10. Their earthly father has disappointed them on many occasions, and my youngest daughter seems to be affected the most. I talk with all of my kids daily about how our heavenly Father never leaves us and loves us immeasurably. I would love to read this book with my girls…so they can continue to serve the Lord and say Yes to Him.

  184. I am in ! I am hoping for a more deeper relationship that my children will say YES to loving God more and following Him more! We would love your book!

  185. Elizabeth Martindale says:

    I prayed for true surrender to God in my daughters heart. It happened and when she did she was all in. God has called her to what she feared the most. A mission field…still waiting for where.

  186. I have two beautiful daughters, ages 21 and 23, who both moved away from home last year. I pray for them every day that they will make the choice to look to Jesus first in their daily walk. My 21 year old has a harder road, as she has yet to find any Christian friends or a home church in her area. I see her struggle to maintain her faith, and would like to place a book of this insight and caliber into her hands to help her stay close to God while she is so far away from me. Thank you and God bless you.

  187. Erica Ritzema says:

    My daughter just turned 12. She has been struggling to identify with a daddy figure. Her biological father hasn’t been there for her. I am remarried and he has done a wonderful job taking care of her but he’s not her ‘real’ dad. I am trying to help her understand there is 1 daddy that will never leave her. I am definetly in.

  188. Lynn, I have 3 daughters with another little girl on the way. It would be such a huge blessing to be able to read this book with all of my daughters and share your encouragement. I have seen and felt with my own heart what God can do when He is in charge of your heart and life. I pray for this for my daughters daily, I pray for their close relationship with Him, I pray they grow closer each and every day. Our world has become such a tricky, tricky trap and I pray my daughters will place their hearts and lives in the Lords hands and overcome this world, just as Jesus has. Anytime I get the chance to share the importance of chosing the Lord for your life with my daughter I do, this would be such a blessing. Thank you!

  189. Cindy Long says:

    I think this book would be an awesome addition to our church library! I’m in!

  190. Teri Wilmarth says:

    A deep prayer has been answered in the offering of this book!! I have a beautiful 12 year old daughter who seems lost and angry and I just don’t know what to do anymore. I pray every day for Jesus to touch her heart like he has done mine. I’m so scared for her. She’s an amazing student and a brilliant dancer, but she just seems so lost and struggling. I pray that I win this book. If not, I will, without a doubt, purchase it. Thank you for this opportunity.

  191. judy carnefix says:

    I have 4 grand. Daughters with 3 of them s ‘tween ‘

  192. My little girl isn’t going to be born until June but I hope and pray daily that she says YES, she will devote her all to God’s plan for her life πŸ™‚

  193. Teri Wilmarth says:

  194. Alissa Burns says:

    My girls are not daughters, they are girls we lead in youth ministry. What i want to see them say yes to is purity and Jesus. That they will be sold out for God and let God complete them and allow God to saturate every area of their lives.

  195. Cassandra Davidson says:

    As a single mother of 4 daughters from a broken family I pray that my daughters seek God to fulfill their needs and find out who they are through HIM! I also pray that my sons do not follow in their fathers footsteps, although I do see one doing that :(. Thank you for this book!!!!

  196. Janet George says:

    I’m in, Lynn.
    Thanks,
    Janet

  197. Jennifer D says:

    I have 3 daughters, ages 12, 8 and 5. I would love to have a copy of this book for them!

  198. Suzanne griffin says:

    I’m in! Have 2 preteen daughters.

  199. Ashley Jordan says:

    I have 2 beautiful young daughter’s who are a blessing to me and my husband. We pray that they say “yes” to keeping their God given innocence as long as He allows, yes to bringing joy to others as they do now, yes to having a servants heart.

  200. Susan Herzog says:

    I want her say yes to God in being a light to those who are unsaved and an encouragement to those who are as she enters highschool this fall.

  201. Hi:) I’m definitely in! I am hoping my 13 year old daughter will say “Yes!” to Jesus. She says she believes in Him but is very cynical and skeptical about reading th e Bible. This week we just began reading from Joyce Meyers’ “Battlefield of the Mind for Teens”; but I feel it’s not quite the right fit for her. I am praying God opens her heart because I know the enemy has been trying to derail her by distracting her with dark music and by intriguing her with the boy bands with all the makeup and facial piercings. Sure hope I win!

  202. I have 2 daughters, ages 7 & 2. I pray that they will have a relationship with God and know their worth. Also, that they will develop discernment, know His will for them. I want them to know they are daughters of the King. Thank you for this opportunity.

  203. Jill Emerson says:

    I want my daughter to say “Yes!” to Him in everything as He becomes everything to her.

  204. I pray my toddler daughter will say “yes” to God in every way in her life. And as a still-somewhat-young woman myself, I am still praying God will help me say “yes” to Him daily.

  205. I’m in!! This book would be a great resource for my Sunday School class of young girls ages 10-13. I also have a 7 year old daughter & it is my heart’s desire to encourage all of “my” girls in SS, as well as my own daughter, to give their all to God, be willing to jump into living for Him whole heatedly even at a young age. You’re never to young or to old to follow God & serve. If we “let go & let God” we may be surprised at the things He will use us to do for His glory. I want to encourage these girls to live a life of adventure as servants for The Lord & this book would be a great resource in my endeavor. Can’t wait to read it as I have yet to read anything Lysa TerKeurst has written that hasn’t been a help or inspiration to me.

  206. This book would be a great one for my daughter.She graduates in May and will be going to Bellevue Masters Commissions for a year. Discipleship/ College Program .

  207. Gretchen Heitkam says:

    Hey Lynn,
    I currently am co-leading our Jr. High Youth and am about to kick off an all girls’ bible study for the Jr and Sr High girls. Not only am I praying my daughter says yes to God now as a feisty 4 year old, but I’m praying that the girls in our community say yes to God in many ways. I was a single mom shortly after high school and I pray that these girls learn from the blessings God has given me to understand that I was desperately in the wrong during my teenage years. Now I’m happy married to a fantastic man, helping our church in our small town bring in some young families to bless them in their faith and traditions for generations, and be an active and hands on role model for the girls in our church. This book would be a great start for a kick off bible study book!!! I’m in!!!
    Very Blessed by the Women of Proverbs31 Ministries,
    Gretchen

  208. Beverly Moss says:

    Praying she’ll say yes to God, in her dating practices!

  209. I hope my daughter says yes to Gods free gift of salvation, yes to spreading the true unadulturated gospel, and yes to purity.

  210. What a wonderful book! I know I still am learning to say to God in *everything* and not just in the area’s I want to say yes in. πŸ™‚ Sounds like an excellent book for young ladies!

  211. At this point I’m not sure where to begin with things other than taking everything to our Lord and Saviour. Our family has been struggling with issues for a long time and recently we have been put into a very difficults situation because of our choices and reactions to our issues. I want so many things for my daughter and Christ is the answer in all of those things. I want her to know Christ will always be there for her in life’s trials to turn to and that his way is the only way. I don’t want her to live lost like I did growing up and feeling alone in my pain and suffering. My parents didn’t bring us to God. I was never really taught his word or his way. I want a different life for my children.

  212. Michelle Ruelke says:

    I’m in and my 13 year old daughter is in! Thank you!!! God bless!

  213. I’m in! Our “little” girl just turned 12 & while our faith is stringb& rooted, we just don’t feel prepared , to be honest. We are just praying God leads her & protects her. She is a very sweet natured girl. We’d love to win this book for all of us! God bless!

  214. I have 2 teen and 1 pre-teen girls. I am so overwhelmed with them. Send to teach them the Bible, Christian school, Awana, Sunday schools….still from time to time they lie. A copy of this book would be much appreciated! Thanks!

  215. I have 2 girls (5 and 18) and I pray that they will always say yes to God no matter what He asks. I would be thrilled to read this book!!! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  216. I don’t have my daughter yet, but she’s coming one day to join her two brothers. And my heart is to serve God by ministering to teenage girls, so I’m in!

  217. Mary Ellen says:

    I’d love a copy!

  218. reginaceli Meyer says:

    I have 2 daughters age 17 and 15 and I would like more than anything to share more God loves with them. I think this book would be great to win!!! I hope that some day my daughters and I coulb go to one of yours workshop together. Thanks for everything you do and share Gods love with us.

  219. I pray my daughter will say “yes” to God’s will for her life. That she will listen to His voice for guidance and wisdom as she gets ready to go to high school in the fall.

  220. Cheryl Rosentreter says:

    Three of my granddaughters range from age thirteen to seventeen. I am especially concerned for one of them. I pray for all three of them and I do want them to be young women that say yes to God. I really want them to know that even in this difficult world we live in they can be godly young women!!!!! I love Lysa and her transparency. I would love to win one of these.

  221. I pray my daughter will say yes to God in all areas of her life, especially when it comes to her purity! She is almost 12 and most days I feel like I don’t have the wisdom and knowledge to fill her up with what she needs. I pray that God fills her up so full that she overflows with His love and wisdom in all situations!

  222. Deb Adams says:

    I’m in! Hope to use this info with my nieces and god daughter.

  223. susan riggs says:

    I’m in! I have 3 teens at home and 1 pre-teen. I pray for all of them to listen to God’s voice and not the world’s; that they say “Yes” to God’s call. Thank you!!

  224. Our daughter is 18 and is struggling. She claims to know the Lord but doesn’t always live for Him. We would love to present her with this book so that she can say “yes” to God in those areas of her life that have a stronghold on her. Along with our prayers for her we hope and trust that the Lord will rescue her from these sinful/fleshly desires and help her to walk as a true child of God.
    Please pray that our daughter would,
    “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:5

    I have 3 daughters 9.5, 7.5, & 2.5 all born in August! I’m in! I want them to all say yes to Jesus in all their relationships.

  226. Veronica Harding says:

    I have a step-daughter that is almost 16 yrs old. She has made mistakes and poor choices so soon in her young life. She’s the mother of a beautiful two month old baby girl. She is going to church with us and trying to get her life back on track and with all of her past issues, I pray she says yes to God and knows He loves her regardless of the mistakes she’s made; just like her father and I do. I want her to know she’s not damaged beyond repair nor is she supposed to be perfect in the future. She is God’s child and He will always love her.

      I forgot to add … I’m In!!!

  227. Lynn, I have 3 daughters with another little girl on the way.It would be such a huge blessing to be able to read this book with all of my daughters and share your encouragement. I have seen and felt with my own heart what God can do when He is in charge of your heart and life. I pray for this for my daughters daily, I pray for their close relationship with Him, I pray they grow closer each and every day. Our world has become such a tricky, tricky trap and I pray my daughters will place their hearts and lives in the Lords hands and overcome this world, just as Jesus has. Anytime I get the chance to share the importance of chosing the Lord for your life with my daughter I do, this would be such a blessing. Thank you!

  228. I don’t have any daughters yet but I pray for them every day anyway. I’m newly married and can’t wait to be a mother. Its my deepest hope that my children learn to love Jesus in a life altering way and trust him with every detail of their lives. My husband and I against his families blessing got married following God’s direction. We regret nothing and I hope that our children can learn to trust God even when the task in front of them is difficult and scary. This seems like such a beautiful book. Regardless of if I win the contest for a free one or not I will probably buy it just the same. πŸ™‚

  229. I’m in. Our daughter is 30-years-old, married, and two kids – one of which is a girl. I would enjoy sharing this with my daughter so she can pass it on to her daughter. Thanks, Lynn

  231. Carrie Gould says:

    This would be an amazing gift to my 15 year old daughter. She has an absent father and I am always worried she will look to the wrong places to fulfill that need. She is so beautiful and amazing, her love for Jesus shines through every day.

  232. Anne Holmes says:

    I would love to get this for my 15 year old “baby” girl.

  233. I want my daughters to say yes to God for everything! From trusting Jesus as their savior, to using their talents for him, to remaining pure until marriage, marrying the right person, raising their children for the Lord. Even if the “yes” hurts or isn’t what they want to do…if it’s what HE wants, I hope they will say YES.

  234. I have two teenage daughters and I lead a Bible study for the high school girls at our church. I was just beginning to research topic ideas for this summer when I saw the post from Proverbs 31 about this book. Looks like this might be a good resource for teenage girls.

  235. This would be a great resource for my teenage daughters and to use with the high school bible study I lead.

  236. My 14 year old daughter is currently in the midst of a huge spiritual battle. She is dealing with depression, cutting, and feelings of homosexuality. Oh how I pray that God has victory and she comes through this a stronger Christian rather than believing the lies of the devil.

  237. As a mom of 3 girls, I pray they will fall in love with Jesus<3 and desire to honor Him with their lives.

  238. I’m in, I have a twelve your old and I pray my daughter will say yes over the pressure of six grade and stand up and be a leader for god

They need all the encouragement and help with God that they can get from everywhere since there is so many who are trying to push them ways they shouldn’t go so..thank you so much for your work and great words…I’m in and so want to share this book with my girls!

  240. I’m in for my two daughters 9 & 20!

  241. I pray my daughters are so deep into God that any man has to go through Him to get to them! I’m in. Thanks.

  242. Thank you for this opprotunity to turn young girls towards God. I have a step daughter and I also work within a Christian organization and this would be a wonderful resource.

  243. Jennifer Stafford says:

    I recently discovered that my 12 year old daughter claims in a blog online to be bi-sexual, a cutter, and wants to commit suicide. I feel side-swiped by satan. But I know a God who is bigger. And I know the truth. Praying for all young girls to see and hear the truth about how God see’s them.

  244. Kiesha R. Sligh says:

    My hearts desire and prayer for my 11.5 year daughter is for her to say “YES” to the Lord’s will for her life by loving the Lord our God with all of her heart, soul and strength-Deut. 6: 5! I’m in for the battle over her heart!!!

She wants to head out to the streets of the, “big city” or back to the brothels of Haiti and show women, God’s love. As her momma, it’s sometimes hard for me to think of her going somewhere where she will be in danger. I am thinking this book would be great for all of us.

  262. Allison Jones says:

  268. Amaris Freier says:

    My 12 year old daughter is discovering her style in clothes and developing friendships that have the potential to last a lifetime.
    I pray she finds her self worth in the Heavenly Father who created her and loved her from the start. She will find beauty is more important in her heart and spirit than in the mirror and that her desire for a life worth living will override the desire to conform to the choices of others.

  269. Jolene Gerlach says:

    Good morning Lynn!

    I’m in!

  270. My daughter has a great heart for God. But…her intentions are bigger than her actions. I pray she says “Yes” to getting up and doing!
    Im in πŸ™‚

  271. I’m in!!! So excited! Thank you for the great giveaway!

  272. Elizabeth says:

    I’m in!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  273. Have a 12-year-old daughter who has entered a season of Mom-opposition…working on how to reach her and let her once again see the promise God has for her life.

  274. As a mom to 3 girls – 16,11,9 – I pray regularly that they will seek God as their highest treasure and know Him so well that they can hear His voice above all others. I hope that, like you, they will choose to serve Him with abandon!

  275. I pray she says Yes to God in every way. But for right now I’m just praying for purity in all areas of her life.

  276. I’m in! Thank you and God bless you.

  277. Anne-Marie Pfligler says:

    I’m in!! My daughter is 16 & I would like for her to say “Yes” to God’s will of staying pure until marriage, as well as his will for her life in her career choices.

  278. I pray that both my daughters are guided in their decisions through the Holy Spirit. Funny that the written devotional mentions that she heard the same thing two different days in a row. God often speaks to me in , I call them, “themes”. How loving our God is to care enough to speak to us through His word, through devotions, through Sunday School teachers, through pastors, etc.. The list goes on and on…

  279. I pray that both my daughters be guided by the Holy Spirit. I pray that who they are, what they wear, what they do with their live honors and glorifies our Savior always. Thank you for writing books like, “What Happens When Young Women Say Yes to God”.

  280. Hi Lynn

    I’m in. I have a 12 yr old daughter and am struggling with how to broach many topics!

  281. Nykesha Jones says:

    I pray that my girls, my daughters from another mother, learn to love themselves and know their worth. There are so many influences in the world like the internet, “reality” TV, frenemies and boys, my son included. These distractions tell our girls that if they do not live like the people on TV or are not willing to do whatever others want them to, they are not worthy. I want them to know that they are loved and worth their weight in Platinum. Being a woman is not based on the number of partners they have or the cost of the shoes on your feet. It is based on the quality of their character and their service to God. He has great works for them to carry out. I just want them to see their success in God, not man.

  282. I would love a copy of this book with 3 beautiful little girls, ages 5-11. Thanks for a wonderful blig of encouragement and great resources!

  283. Carol Burrell says:

    Thanks for all you ladies do. Count me in.

  284. I actually don’t have any biological children, but I am a Youth Pastor’s wife and I work in Christian Education. I am ALWAYS around young girls (ladies) it’s one of my passions & prayer that they would live & grow to be Godly Women.

    My Young Adult Ladies Bible Study did “What Happens When Women Say Yes To God” last year and it was a big hit, as well as a challenge!!!

    Looking forward to passing along this one to a young lady in the near future…maybe even free! πŸ˜€

  285. Kelley Jo says:

    I’m in for my daughter!
