A girl’s confidence is at its peak at the age of 9.

That’s what research tells us.

Nine years old. 

When she is teetering on all that change … right around the corner. With all the world before her …

If a girl’s confidence peaks at age 9 … that doesn’t make the future look all that bright!

Let’s change that!


“Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You” is written especially for girls between the ages 8 – 12. It’s not just a book — it’s a companion guide on a girl’s journey to learning to become courageous, confident and fearless.

Now is the time to help her to build a confidence in Christ that stands firm for the days to come.


Brave Beauty helps tween girls to:

  • Gain confidence by accepting her unique qualities and understand how they can work for her, not against her.
  • Discover who God says she is, in His eyes, and how He can help her.
  • Discuss the tough stuff she’s going through as she changes physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually.
  • Learn how God’s words can help her become brave and beautiful.


I’m sharing this free I Am Brave printable to help you and your child to remember who God says you are and be brave!  It’s easy to receive! Just fill in here:




  1. I would love to share this with my daughter, Lauren. As an only child, I feel she would benefit greatly from this book and that it would boost her self-confidence in who god wants her to be versus who the world says she should be.

  2. Haylie Kendrick is my 9 year old Granddaughter, she will be 10 on August 7, 2017 and I would love to win a copy for her!

  3. Suzy Metts says:

    I teach 5-6th grade students in our church. We will soon promote to our next age classes and I just realized that somehow this year my class will be all girls! This book will be a perfect gift to these girls! Thank you for recognizing the vulnerability of this age and the fertile ground that is their hearts and minds during this time. I’m excited about pouring God’s Word into their lives in the next year!

  4. Julie Bennett says:

    Either my sweet 9 year old daughter or my neice who has been struggling severe depression and anxiety. Thank you for this opportunity and the book.

  5. I will be sharing this book with my daughter who is 10. This will be the perfect book for her to read as she begins 5th grade. Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. My great-niece Sophie, as she does not have the spiritual upbringing with Jesus that she needs.

  7. Amanda Hoover says:

    I will share this with my 11 year old daughter who will begin junior high in just a couple weeks. Like another commenter, my daughter struggles with anxiety and depression. Looking forward to sharing this book and these resources with her as we continue this journey.

  8. Jennifer Doub says:

    I would love to share this book with my 9-year-old daughter, Addy… she is a sweetheart, and I would love guidance on how to help grow her into a brave young lady. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  9. I would love to share this with my precious grand daughter… She is so lovely, and a gentle hearted, tender young lady. It would encourage her greatly as she enters that time in life of many changes and uncertainty.

  10. Lee Ann Kramer says:

    I would first share it with my brace 8 year old daughter. We would be sure to pass it on to another brace Girl when we were finished!

  11. Lee Ann Kramer says:

    I would share it with my 8 year old and be sure to pass it on when we were finished!

  12. Kristen Lester says:

    My granddaughter Addalyn. She has a split home with very different parenting styles . I pray that God will still her & hokd her heart in His hands as she grows older. She is 8.

  13. I am super excited to read this with my 9 year old and then her two younger sisters when they are older.
    Thank you for writing such a great resource for this age girl. These years are super important to their character development before the teen years!!!

  14. I would shares with my 8 and 12 year old daughters, both who need help with self esteem and I look forward to reading this with them!

  15. Heather Nylin says:

    My husband and I have four daughters(6, 8, 9, and 11). Our desire for them is to be the women God wants them to be. They will not be if they are expected to conform to this world. We want them to know that they have resources outside of us and their church family that are an encouragement to that end. I believe that Brave Beauty will provide that. Of course we will need to purchase four copies! 🙂

  16. My daughter will soon be starting 6th grade I’d love for her to have this resource!

  17. I am looking forward to reading this book with my daughter. I am already seeing some signs that she is struggling to open up to me about her doubts and struggles. I pray this book will lead to many opportunities for us to share toogether.

  18. Linda Mullen says:

    I would share this with my 9 year old granddaughter! She has such a giving heart!

  19. Linda Mullen says:

    I would give this to my 9 year old granddaughter! She has such a giving heart!

  20. Jaci Kasko says:

    I would share with my wonderful, big hearted daughter who just turned 11!

    Since finding out she has dyslexia and ADHD she has not been herself! It’s been about 2 years since we found out and she getting better at accepting that God has made her learning different but she still has a hard time when certain events like test or awards day but she getting there!

  21. Billie Moore says:

    My granddaughter, Jadeigh, is going into the 7th grade. She recently placed her faith in Jesus, while at church camp. At her home, no one walks with Christ. Since she loves to read, I know this would help her.

  22. Geralyn Miller says:

    I have a granddaughter who is half black and half white. My oldest daughter & my son-in-law got guardianship of her when she was almost one year old & has raised her as one of their own ever since. Aliveia lives with a bunch of blonde blue-eyed people and she has a complex. She wants to be white with blonde hair and blue eyes so she can be beautiful! Of course, Aliveia IS absolutely beautiful, but she doesn’t know it. So Aliveia is the beautiful young lady that I would like to give your book to. Thanks for all you do and may our God bless you richly!

    1. This does sound like something Aliveia could use. Hopefully her parents are sharing positive images of her heritage and trying to involve her in her background culture. Prayers be with all and Aliveia in this quest.

  23. Kimberley Wilson says:

    I would love to give this to my daughter. She is a wonderful and confident girl, but I worry as she grows she will lose that spark. I struggled with an eating disorder and depression as a teen and would do anything to keep her from experiencing those hardships but often at a lose on how to keep that from happening to her. Hope this book can help us both and of course a lot of prayer!!

  24. Lauren Johnson says:

    My 9 and 10 year old daughters. 🙂

  25. Dorothy Burton says:

    This sounds like the perfect book for my 10 year old daughter, Ava!

  26. My 10 year old daughter so needs or hear this!! I was so blessed to adopt her when she was 6 years old. She had a rough start to life…. And feels undeserving, for some unknown reason!! She loves the Lord, so I know her heart will be open to internalizing that God is her true father!!

  27. My niece would enjoy this!

  28. Nancy Gallardo says:

    I would share this with my niece Annalisa. She is just about to enter middle school.

  29. Amanda Nolt says:

    My 9 year old daughter

  30. Laura Stafford says:

    My 10 year old daughter. She has struggled with her confidence all her life and I don’t want her to end up like the huge mess I am not even knowing who I am anymore. I wish I had a book like this growing up and maybe I wouldn’t be playing catch up in my life.

  31. Wendy Henderson says:

    I would love to include a copy of this book in my public elementary school’s library collection. As a librarian in a small rural community, I struggle to find age appropriate resources such as this for my girls, many from single parent low, income homes. Thank you for your consideration!

  32. I have 3 daughters that I would love to share this with. My two older daughters are 9 and 12 so this would be perfect for them now and then my youngest in a couple years.

  33. I would love to give this to my 8 year old granddaughter. She has such a tender heart and loves Jesus. She is very sensitive to others, especially if she sees a need, whether it be a child or adult. I have seen her overcome with concern over an autistic child needing his mother and I’ve also witnessed her heartfelt love and a desire to comfort me as she was getting ready to return home, 16 hours away from me, after family vacation. My prayer is that she will learn how to channel this sensitivity as she gets older and not be easily swayed in the wrong direction simply because she cares. I think this book would be a fantastic tool!

  34. My sweet almost 9 yr old daughter. I would love to equip her to withstand all the world is going to throw at her as she grows and changes.

  35. Jill Grazioso says:

    My daughter, Isabella, and I would love this book! I struggled for years with insecurities, fear of man, anxiety. I am free through Jesus Christ. I want a braver, confident, secure future for my precious girl.

  36. My daughter who is 11. I have always struggled with a fear of people and with who I really am and I don’t want her to go through the same.

  37. I have a 7 year old who struggles with trying to be friends with a girl who is toxic. This will be good for both of us!

  38. My beautiful 7 year old already struggles with peer pressure and trying hard to fit in. This will be wonderful for us!

  39. My 10 year old daughter and I would work through this!

  40. Silvana Jackson says:

    My daughter who is 11 would enjoy this book. I have always struggled with self-worth and worrying too much about what others think. I don’t want my baby to struggle and go through the same thing. I want her to be courageous and step out in faith, just as God created her to be!

  41. Regina Forshee-Bedke says:

    I would share it with my daughter and granddaughter who just turned 8 last month. My son-in-law just lost his job and my daughter is a full time student getting her PA degree so things are a little insecure at their house. Eve, my granddaughter, is a vibrant, fun loving girl who I would love to see grow into a confident young woman in Christ. Thank you ???

  42. I would love to share this with my sweet granddaughter

  43. Michelle Detmer says:

    My 11 year old daughter. This has been a struggle for me and want to help her.

  44. I would love a copy for my granddaughter Grace or for our Celebration Place kids program at church for kids who are in either dysfunctional, addicted families, being bullied…..

  45. My 8 year old daughter! I want to do all I can to show her Jesus doesn’t want her to struggle the way I did and that God loves her and made her perfect tiny self just the way He wanted it…and that is glorious.

  46. This would be a great book for my son’s girlfriend and her 9 year old daughter. It would be a way to keep their relationship bonded.

  47. I will use this book as a bedtime devotional/conversation starter with my 9-year-old daughter. It will be perfect for us!

  48. We just moved to a new town and my 9 year old daughter will be starting a new school in just a few weeks. She already has some anxiety issues and I worry that jumping into 4th grade at the middle school will be hard for her. I love the idea of teaching young girls to be brave! I’d love to win a copy of the book to share with her and to read together each night.

  49. Cari Adams says:

    This book looks awesome!!! I’m hoping to do it with my daughter, Freja, who is eight. Wish I would have had something like this as a young girl. Thank you, Lynn for writing it!!!

  50. I would love a copy for my 2 girls- 12 and 7. Middle school is rough and finding God’s beauty in yourself is even harder! I want them to bombarded with God’s truth rather than the worlds lies!!

  51. Cassie Laffan says:

    I will share this book with my 10 year old Jillian. Her older sister and I have read Magnetic together and I can’t wait to get this book too! Thankful for your sweet and oh so important ministry!!

  52. My two wonderful daughters, 8 and 10. Would love to be able to share this with them and help them find the brave beauty within each of them.

  53. I homeschool my children, two boys and 1 girl. My daughter is 11 and I’ve been praying and searching for a devotional that we could do together and one she could do on her own. I’d share this devotional with her.

  54. What an amazing blessing this book can be to so many young girls, and their mothers! I’d love this book for my daughter, as she is just entering the ‘tween’ stage and we have already noticed a lot of changes, changes as parents we’re trying to embrace, and not discourage her, but help her to be the young woman the Lord designed for her to be.

  55. This book is exactly what I have been looking for. My husband and I are raising through foster care two aboriginal girls who are sisters. Their struggles are many just because of what life has brought them. Thanks for writing this book to give as a tool to us parents, who so desperately want to help our daughters.

  56. Becky Bliek says:

    I want to give this book to my daughter, Mya. She is adopted, and struggles with accepting herself and her story.

  57. Beth Bennett says:

    I have 3 daughters! I would love to begin by giving this to my oldest daughter, Haylee, who is 10 years old and already struggles with confidence. It could then be passed down to her younger sisters when they reach the appropriate age. One of my greatest desires for them is that they would be confident in who God made them & not be swayed by what the world may think.

  58. Elizabeth says:

    This sounds like the perfect book for my 10-year old daughter, Madelyn. We are about to move to a new state, so she will be starting a brand new school, church, everything! I pray she will be brave and confident throughout all of the upcoming changes.

  59. Shae Jordan says:

    I think this would be great for my 10, turning 11 tomorrow daughter Zoe. Then, passing out down to her 2 younger sisters. I pray often for them to be “confident” in God so that they will gracefully withstand this world. Of course, I would want for them not to experience some of the things that may cause their self-confidence to waver but we all know that’s not likely. So now I just pray that they’ll be confident enough in God that they will get through it confidently with Him.

  60. Love to have this for my sweet, free spirited first born!

  61. Sarah Scott says:

    I would read this book with our 4 daughters as they each came of age. They range from 11 to 3 right now. Thanks for writing this and for giving us the opportunity to win it!

  62. martha smith says:

    I am always looking for great resources to guide my 8 year old daughter as she becomes a woman grounded and in love with Christ. I pray that all of the women raising daughters of the King will be surrounded by love and support from the body of Christ.

  63. My daughter is 12 and came home yesterday from a youth group camping trip. As she shared about the weekend, she broke down in tears because God had worked in her heart! The things God is teaching her go right along with this book – wow! What great timing! I am so excited to give her this book!

  64. I would share this with my 11 year old daughter Ashlyn.

  65. My 11 year old daughter Ashlyn would love this!

  66. Faith Taylor says:

    This is awesome! I would share with my nieces, Isela and Alana, who are 9 and 11.

  67. Katreis StJohn says:

    Thank you for taking the time to write this book. I would love to read this with my daughter, Victoria. She will be 10 in Decenber. Honestly, her self confidence and self love is non-existent. She lives in a very unhealthy environment half of the time, I have been trying to impress upon her how wonderfully made she is. Any help would be fantastic. Plus I could share with my 5 year old when the time comes.

    Thank you

  68. I would love to share with my grand daughter. She is my little sweetie. Always so kind to everyone

  69. rachel book says:

    I have 3 daughters, the oldest is 9 years old. I would read this with her and with my other girls as they grow!

  70. This book sounds great for my daughter who just turned 9 & is in the middle of transitioning to a “new school”. She doesn’t have many friends yet & feels out of place.

  71. Lenore Leavell says:

    I would give this to my 10 year old niece. She’s very confused right now coming from a split family. She has her mom who believes in free-range parenting and then she has her dad who’s not quite sure how to raise girls and then she has my parents and each of them are raising them differently. I try to interject whenever I can and just love on them. She really could use a book like this. She loves to read and I know this would change her life immensely.

  72. I would share this literature with my nine year old niece. She just turned nine and has experienced bullying and teasing from close peers. She has also constantly experienced challenges with fitting in, being herself and speaking up when necessary. This book may help motivate her to better appreciate who she is. Additionally, when she finishes reading this book, she could pass on to my three daughters. My oldest is seven and will be nine in two years. Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this drawing.

  73. I would give this book to my little neighbor that just turned 9. I would have my 14 year old read it 🙂 my neighbors dint go to church so it would a good way to share Jesus with them. Thanks

  74. Linda Neely says:

    This is for my grand-daughter Briar.

  75. I would share this book with my almost 9 year old granddaughter! She is beautiful! We want her to know true beauty comes from within when her heart loves the Lord. I feel this so just ‘d be a good book for her as well as us. Thank you for your encouraging words. God bless!

  76. I would love to share this with my daughter, Angee. She is 9 and i already see a lack of confidence in her. I pray constantly that God will give me the wisdom to help build her confidence. I have struggled with self-confidence my entire life and I want so much more for her. I am so excited to hear about your book! Thank you for answering God’s call to help others!

  77. Jennifer Lehr says:

    I would love to go through this book with my 9-year-old daughter, Samantha. I definitely see so many areas in her life that this book would help her with!

  78. My granddaughters are 9 &11.
    This would ne wonderful for them to read and they both love to read.

  79. My daughter Iliana choice the word BRAVERY this year for her word. It would be So cool for her to win this book.

  80. Ricole Rice says:

    I would love to go through this book with my two daughters! They are 9 and 11.

  81. I would share with my soon-to-be 11 year old daughter Avery. She struggles with friendships at school and church and with a younger sister, struggles with being young and playing dolls or being “old” and avoiding those little-kid games. She wants so hard to fit in and I’m afraid her faith isn’t strong enough for some of the trials she’ll soon face. Thank you!

  82. I would get this for all of my girls! I have 2 bio daughter 8 & 6, and 2 foster daughters that are going to be adopted by the end of the year, ages 3 & 2. They also have a sister on the way that may come into our care. I would LOVE any help to teach them all to live confidently and boldly for Christ!

  83. Brandi S. says:

    I’ll share it with my 11 year old heading into Jr High she needs all the reminders she can get.

  84. Thank you, I would share this with my teen daughter. Her father, my husband died when she just turned 9. I really can’t imagine what life looks like to a young girl at that age. Thank you so much for writing this book.

  85. I would love to share this with my 10 year old daughter whose dad died a little under 3 months ago unexpectedly. She has been increasingly insecure and filled with fears since this happened. We actually sang “Brave” by Nicole Nordman this past year and I frequently tell her to be brave over these rough 3 months. I so desire for my daughter to be strong in who she is as a child of God.

  86. I would love to read the book with my 9-year old daughter. Thanks!

  87. Rebecca H. says:

    I would give the book to my nieces who are both 9. Their parents are divorced so I think it is even more difficult for them to figure out who they are!

  91. I would love for my youngest daughter to have the cnfidence she needs in the Lord. Her older sister stands firm in her beliefs, but she seems to think she won’t ever measure up to her.

  92. I believe my daughter 9 yr. old daughter, Bielle will really benefit from this book. She could also pass this on to her soon-to-be 6 yr. old sister, Eeshie, and read it as appropriate when she turns 8. To GOD be the glory in what He’s doing to all tween-agers!! Praise God for your life Lynn! God has made you wise to share it to our daughters. May God bless you!

  95. Delores McPherson says:

  96. I am a clinician who specializes in child trauma. I would use this book as a tool with all the young girls I work with. I would introduce it to my daughter in 2 years when she turns 8. Thank you for sharing a heart to help young girls in a time where it is desperately needed.

  97. I have 3 girls that I would love to start sharing this with!! They started their school career in a private Christian school and for the first year this year will be going to public school. I would love to continue to point them to Jesus and who He says they are in Him and I feel like this book would Ben a wonderful tool! A mama needs all the help she can get!!

  98. Jennifer Nixon says:

  100. I would love to share this book with my niece Aubrey. She is the bravest person I know going through countless surgeries with more on the horizon of her young future to fix her cleft palate. She also faces looks and stares and whispers behind her back especially at school as well as teasing. A new school year with new classmates is always a challenge. Through it all she smiles big and is full of joy.

  101. Elizabeth says:

    I will save it for my baby that is due in October.

  102. My granddaughter is 8. Her mother has decided to divorce her father, no warning just up and family split. I am trying to keep her grounded. This is such a tough age and the divorce is hitting her very hard. I believe this book with be an asset for her, along with lots of love and acceptance from her dad and our family. Thanks for writing this book.

  103. Melissa Kerner says:

    2 of my 3 daughters are 8 & 10. This is the perfect book for them in this season! We have been struggling with being who God says they are vs conforming to the ways of the world for acceptance.

  104. Tracey Gose says:

    I would love to share this with my daughter, Gillian!!

  105. My daughter is almost 8 along with a group of her friends. I would love to incorporate this with all of us to help our girls understand Gods hand in who they are. I know we try as parents to help them understand this, but this sounds like a great resource!

  106. This sounds like a great book!

  107. My daughter is 7 and would love to share this with her. I also have a niece who is turning 11 and would benefit from this!

  108. Amanda Melton says:

    I would be sharing this with my daughter, Maddie! She is 11 years young and is starting middle school this year!! I remember how tough the transition to middle school was and I know from experience, (I have 5 younger sisters, several nieces and a 14 yr old daughter) that middle school is when children are more subject to try and impress their peers. It’s when girls start coming into their own and now days, it’s when children start to pick on and bully others about looks, clothing and even each others actions. My Maddie is a bright light! She is growing into a wonderful young lady and is active in several church programs and studies! I pray that she is able to stand firm on her feet and be confident in the ways of the Lord and His word even when others tease and try to pressure her into changing her mind! … Thank you for the devotion and for bringing this message to the young ladies of our world!

  109. Elizabeth Saunders says:

    I would share this book with my oldest daughter Harlie Ann. She will be 8yrs old in March. She is the oldest to two other sister (1 and 2 yr old). I am a new single mom who has been cheated on by my husband (the girls dad) since Harlie was 18 months old. Her dad would leave for a couple of months and then come back claiming salvation and wanting his family all to just leave again within a year or two. She has seen way to much for her 8 yrs but she is the reason I keep going. My prayer every night is that she knows she is loved by me but more importantly by God. I do want her to seek God in all things not guys because she has been shown what a man is not supposed to do. I can only imagine what is going on in her heart and mind seeing her daddy lie to us and leave all the time. I am finally breaking the cycle this time because I finally see the picture for what it truly is. Me and my girls deserve better and we are putting our faith in God to be the provider and the father to the fatherless.

  110. I would share this book with Sophia.

  111. Thank you for committing yourself to writing for this age group of girls. I feel that time of a girls life is very crucial in preparing for teenage years & even adulthood. That is the time that we, parents, need to be arming them with a solid (God & religious based) foundation to help them through the years ahead. I look forward to getting this book for my 8 year old daughter. ?

  112. Sarah Jones says:

    I would love to share with my daughter Cheyenne. She will be turning 12 on August 25th. We really struggle a lot of the time because it’s well so and so don’t have to why do I and they have that why can’t I have the same thing. I love her so much and she has so much potential but due to classmates and this world she doesn’t think she is pretty enough, doesn’t have the right clothes and accessories. When I was her age I struggled with some of the same things but not as strongly as she does and I had support from the right people and a strong youth group that helped. We are trying to find that for her. I would love for her to have this book to help her.

  113. I want to share this book with my precious daughter, Eliza. Once a confident, unique, discerning girl, our recent divorce and abuse from her dad has caused her to doubt, fear and worry whose she is. Her trust in God has deepened yet she’s fearful walking that out in the face of others.
    I would covet this book as a tool to help her walk with confidence! I pray for her testimony to be filled with Gods handprint and boldness!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Lord, we pray for Sarah’s daughter. Restore what she has lost through pain and grief. Abba Father, fill the gap that has opened through her earthly father’s abuse. Do what only you can do, Lord. Amen

  114. Im a retired teacher, and I would like to share this book with a young lady who was my student and with whom I atill keep,in touch. Its tough out there and I think this would encourage and empower her. Thank you !

  115. Mary Elizabeth Christian says:

    I would love to have this for my 9 year old daughter, Katherine!

  116. I would like to share this book with my 9 year old daughter. It looks like a valuable read! Thank you.

  117. Karen Pope says:

    I would share this book with the girls in my 5th/6th grade class at school. I have been teaching this age group for the past 23 years and consider the age a critical time in any girl’s life. So much is ahead of them in the area of building a solid foundation for their lives. God bless you for writing this book!!

  118. I would share this my granddaughters. My oldest is 15 and just returned from a mission trip to Mexico. She has a younger sister who is nine. Both would certainly benefit from your words. Thank you for your posts.

  119. I have several beauties that I would share this book with. I have 3 granddaughters at prime age for this book, and 3 granddaughters who will be at the age for this book within a few years. I also lead a small group of girls in 4th and 5th grade at Church, so it would definitely be put to good use! 🙂 What a beautiful way to share with girls in this age group how to have the confidence they need and to understand who they are in Christ! Thank you! 🙂

  120. Marijo says:

    I would love to share this book with my 8 year old granddaughter. It sounds like such a perfect book for
    girls this age! I know it will teach valuable life-long lessons in a very challenging world! Thank You!!

  121. Thx for your devotion today. I would share a copy of this great book with my daughters and then their friends at church.

    I would love to share this book with my beautiful unique daughter Taylor, she is 12 yrs old, and a true blessing to all she meets. Things have been getting tough on her in the last couple years though and I worry she is losing that special twinkle she has always had in her eye. My oldest daughter who is now in her 20’s, raised in our Christian home, loved church, her church friends, serving..etc..graduated HS in ’14 and moved back east wehere our extend family is (we are a military family, my husband has been serving in the AF 17 yr..still active duty. After my oldest left she something changed…and she is now going through the process of transgendering?? As any Christian mom, dad…friend or family member can imagine has been very difficult on all of us…and it’s really very confusing on my two younger children. I also have a 10yr old boy. My kids go to secular schools and are known as the Christian kids, we live in Las Vegas. They have so many things coming at them in so many directions I am amazed at the their strength and faith?❤️? Anything their father and I can do to keep assuring them and encouraging in their walk with the Lord we want to do! They have shared their faith to so many young people…I just pray they hold on to it and not let all the trials we are facing overwhelm them. My oldest is even still holding on for dear life to Her father in Heaven..she just doesn’t understand why all these different feelings she has had most of her life. Thank you for letting me share…???

      Melonie, you are a very brave mom. When our kids go through these seasons when they are confused, some much stronger than others, it is so hard on us. At times we can wonder what we did wrong or wonder why God doesn’t just break the confusion. I don’t have the answers, but I do know He is faithful to His word and I am one mom standing on it. I can see you are another.

      Father, You alone hold up the Schang family. I ask You to make Your presence clear to them EACH DAY. Give them the power to cling to You and stand for you. We break confusion over their eldest daughter. Clear away the fog that is clouding her mind and help her find her freedom in You. You alone are the salvation and hope for our families, Jesus. Amen

    I would share it with my niece and daughter. What a great resource for girls to use in gaining confidence in who God made them to be in a world that teaches otherwise.

  124. Lynn,

    This post spoke to me on so many levels. Thank you. I just preordered a copy for oyr 8 year old.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Thank you so much for investing in your girl, Tara! I hope it will be an answer to my prayers in your girl’s life … that she will build her self-worth on God’s unconditional love!

  125. Amanda Soirez says:

    I would share this with my niece. She is very special and has an amazing servants heart. I want her to keep that and not worry about others opinions. This could be a great guide for her.

  126. JA Slaton says:

    I would love to give a copy to my beautiful 11 and 13 year old granddaughters. I feel this would help them prepare for the years ahead and their walk with Christ.

  127. For my 8-year-old daughter Isabella

  128. Melissa Visser says:

    I have 2 daughters this age that I would love to share this book with! I want for them to have confidence in themselvs much earlier than I did. (Actually, its still a work in progress for me). Thank you for writing this book with such an important message for girls!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      It’s a work for all of us, Melissa! (That’s why I wrote a book for us women on confidence that comes out in November. Stayed tuned! 🙂

  129. Breeana Almeda says:

    I would share this book with my daughter’s.

  130. Danielle Rijke says:

    If I win this book I would give it to my niece who is turning nine soon. And my hope would be for all my nieces who are younger to have a turn to read it when they get older.

  131. Shari Kozlowski says:

    I still share this with 11 year old daughter Samantha who needs this desperately. 5Th grade was sooo tough for her. She needs to be saturated with understanding God’s love for her beautiful self.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Shari, I think 5th and 6th grade are really hard years. So much change, with kids experiencing these changes at different times. I am so glad your girl has you!

  132. Sharayah Arnold says:

    I have two daughters, 11 and 9. I would absolutely LOVE to share this book with them!! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  133. Catrina Kosower says:

    My daughter Isabelle is 11. This would be great for her! I like that there are age appropriate resources for speaking God’s Word into our daughters lives. Wonderful and so appreciated.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      I’m so excited that I have had the opportunity to write one, Catrina!

  134. Christy Baylor says:

    For my best friend’s 9 year old daughter, who is like a niece to me and has had to be crazy brave this year.

  135. Vernét Farmer says:

    I would love to share this book with my 12 year old daughter Kennedy who is going into the 7th grade. i think this book would be a perfect read for her as she continues to tackle middle school. Lots of changes going on in her body & mind at this time, and let’s not even bring up social media and what messages it’s sending our girls! Lord Jesus help us to help them! ??????

  136. I would love to have a copy of this book for my 11 year old special needs granddaughter Ashlei. Her Dad chooses to spend only 48 hrs a month with her and then most of that time is devoted to her 12 yr old brother. Though she has cognitive deficits, she is very much aware and “feels” the rejection from her Dad. Mom reinforces the love of our Heavenly Father but this sounds like a wonderful, helpful book.

  137. Monica Compagnari says:

    I would love to give this to my 11 year old daughter. She already struggles with being her true self when she is at school.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      It starts early doesn’t it, Monica? Lord, give Monica’s girl bravery and help her to establish her true self – her worth, on You from the start. Amen

  138. I’d like to share this with my 9 year old daughter

  139. Tina Wright says:

    I have two girls 8 1/2 and almost 11. I long to give them the confidence and faith that I lost in turbulent pre-teen years. This book looks amazing and a great starting point for them to build on together and as individuals.

  140. i have a 12 year old and soon to be 7 year old girl. this would be a great book to have at our house. Thanks!

  141. This is perfect for my daughter Anna!

  142. I would like to give this to my daughter emma who just turned 13.

  143. I would love to share this with my soon to be 12 year old. It’s such a tender age and I’m thankful that there are “helps” such as this book, available during this season of parenting.

  144. Sharon Easterling says:

    I would share it with my two oldest nieces to start with. One is going to be eleven and the other is nine and a half.

  145. My best friend works for a local nonprofit, “Urban Mountain Adventires”. She is a local missionary mentoring girls of all ages, that live in the inner city, have very little, but have a thirst for God. I would share this book with her so that she can continue to speak Truth into these girls.

  146. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to wish.i would share this with my neice with my friends toddler and with the children I teach.

  147. Amy Moore says:

    My daughter has just started seeing a counselor for her fears & anxieties. I am not sure where these extreme fears have come from. She has not always been this way. You words on their confidence peeking at 9 have made me think a lot. She will be 12 next month. This book looks like a perfect book to work through with her. I am trying to encourage her to turn to scripture for strength & encouragement, but what works for me doesn’t always work for her.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Congratulations Amy! You are the winner of Brave Beauty! Please send your full name and address to [email protected] and we’ll send it out as soon as we receive our copies!

  148. Stacia Foote says:

    These books would be great resources for my new Mentoring project that involves 10 tweens that kicks off next month!!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      They should would!

  149. Jennifer Shockley says:

    I would love to receive this book for my nine year old daughter. Stay sweet in Jesus young girls, stay sweet.
