It’s Finally Here!


I know. It was a long time ago when you were a young girl. We forget what it was like way back then. (That’s one reason I read my diaries from that time … to help me remember and relate!)

Maybe you too can remember, snippets of that time. Asking questions as you looked in the mirror or looked out onto the playground: Am I loved? Am I valuable? Am I smart?

These are not unlike the questions we still can ask ourselves today. As my husband always reminds me when I am speaking or writing. “The message is the same; only the audience is different.”

A girl needs to know she’s enough because of God’s love. Only then can she share that love with others in friends, family, and maybe a marriage one day.

Today, my co-author counselor Michelle Nietert and I release our book, Loved & Cherished: 100 Devotions for Girls, equipping girls ages 8-12 to confidently know they’re loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable.

September 8th – 22nd, for every copy of Loved & Cherished purchased, we will donate a copy to a girl in foster care who also needs to know she is loved and cherished. Just click here for all the details on how you can donate a copy!

Maybe you have a heart to not just impact one girl but many by starting a small group for girls to know they are loved and cherished.  With the purchase of 8 copies of Loved & Cherished: 100 Devotions for Girls, you will receive a free group study guide, coloring pages plus a Zoom call for your group with authors Lynn or Michelle. Click here for more information.

Now for the giveaway! 

Today, we’re giving away five autographed copies of Loved & Cherished! For your chance to win one of these five copies of Loved & Cherished, simply share in the comments below the name of the girl you want to gift with this book. {Winners will be notified by September 15th by email.}

  28. Deyait Watson-Irvine says:

    I love that you all wrote this book! I remember this struggle. With all that going on, joblessness, unrest and upheaval it’s easy for adults to feel this way again, so I know the kids are feeling it too! I’d like to read this with my daughter, to remind us both about Gods message! Thank you again for writing this book!

  29. Would love to give to all my girls; daughters, daughter in law. But I think I would give to my granddaughter, Violet Peace. She’s 1 1/2 and my little buddy.

  37. My daughter just turned 8 and she, like you describe yourself Lynn, is a very loud and energetic girl. And guess what one of my biggest stressers is…constant noise! I am afraid that I sometimes do not make her feel loved for who she is. I’m also afraid this could be the case when she is a t school or other places where quiet and sitting still are expected. At the same time I love her energery and excitement for every new adventure. Excited to learn about this devotional that I might be able to go through with her to build confidence, self-worth, and to enforce the knowledge that she is loved.

  38. Thank you for writing this book, Lynn.
    What a critical message and especially for our young kids. I’m interested in the book for my daughter, Brooke, who is 10 and even plan to share it with my son. I also love how you are donating a copy of the book to a child in foster care. What a fabulous way to share the message.

  39. My daughter Hope she is 11

  40. My friends daughter, Braelyn.

  41. Perfect timing, I think this book would be just right for my daughter Charlotte.

  42. My granddaughter, Hailey.

  43. Kassandra Velasquez says:

    I would like this book for my 8year old, Meyah. So is so vibrant and full of life but becuase she is so emotional she receives things so deeply, she is sometimes so hard on herself and no matter what i tell her she won’t believe me.

  44. I would donate it to a child in need!

    1. I love that! So many poor children need to know that there is a God up there that cares about them.

  45. KELLY KRAUSE says:


  46. For my great-grand-daughter, Peyton.

  47. This sounds perfect for my daughter Jaidyn! With the start of the new school year and things a little different, this might help guide us closer to God and who we are in His eyes ?? Thank you ????

  48. Both of my daughters can read this! Anna and Kate! Love your stuff!!

  49. My 10 year old daughter Alyza. Like Lynn, she’s loud and energetic. She’s always saying she‘s just herself but I always worry she’ll lose that light due to societies expectations. This book will be a great reminder to her to keep being herself no matter what.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Michelle and I can testify … God has a special place for little girls like us and Alyza 🙂 Keep pouring truth into her heart, Jessica!

  50. Donna L Elliott says:

    My granddaughter Kalyssa. She really struggles with self esteem and I think this would be amazing.

  52. Juliana Gouveia says:

  53. Tilara Yawn says:

    This would be a great book for me to give to my great granddaughter. She is 9 and has commented to me that she doesn’t have friends and feels insecure. I would love to be able to read with her and open a dialogue to help her express herself and be able to share the love of Jesus with her.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      What a beautiful investment in her life that would be, Tilara!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Thank you so much!

  59. Yay!! Release day is finally here! My daughter (Ella) and I have been excitedly waiting for your new book all summer. How wonderful of you to share it with girls in foster care ?. Blessings on those girls and your big heart!

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

  61. Jibi Philip says:

  62. Nancy Trach says:

    This would be a wonderful book for both my daughters, ages 12 and 9. My oldest is at a tough age navigating through her 7th grade year with special needs. It would be a blessing to both her and my youngest.

  63. antiemelinda says:

    Thank you for writing this book, Lynn. I have a great niece, Avani, who is 5, but has experienced a LOT of trauma in her life so far, and I know this will be a great book for her.

    Her Mommy and Daddy (my adopted Nephew) got divorced and then we discovered that one of them had abused her (and her brother), so they were removed from their Daddy’s home in FL about 2 years ago. My BIL and Sister (their Papa and Memaw) were contacted, and they chose to foster them.

    My BIL and Sister adopted them on Dec 30, 2019, so they could have a Forever family within their family.

    And then their lives changed again on August 6th, when their Papa/Daddy passed away suddenly due to cardiac arrest. It has been a really hard year with the coronavirus and quarantine, but even more difficult with this loss.

    Even if I don’t win a book for Avani, I know that my Sister, her adult children and their spouses, her 10 grandchildren, our extended family, and their church (my BIL was a Pastor) can really use some prayer for healing.

    Thank you.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Heartache upon heartache! Father, You alone can heal and restore such deep hurt and wounds in this precious one of Yours. Comforter, send wave upon wave of peace and hope into their home and do what ONLY You can do! Amen

  64. Tammy Frazee says:

    This sounds perfect for my neighbor, Gracie! She’s only 10 and has had such a traumatic life! I try to pour God’s love into her in any way that I can.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      God planted the two of you to live side by side!

  65. I would gift this to my daughter, who is 9. She joined our family when she was 2 1/2 and her adoption was final three years later. We love her unconditionally but some days are just plain hard. She questions her worth and value at the most unexpected times and I just so very much want her to be secure in her identity as a child of God and in our love for her and her place in our family.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Father, heal this precious child of Yours. May she know she belongs to You and she belongs in this family. Heal every wound and every heartache! Amen

  66. sherina scott says:

    My cousin Gabriella Kerr, I saw her scribling not good enough on paper

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Every girl needs to know they are GOOD ENOUGH because they are made in the image of God Himself!

  67. Melissa Smith says:

    This sounds like such a great book! I’d actually love to gift it to my 8yr old daughter, Hayden.

  68. Trish Niemitz says:

    For my granddaughter Kate who
    Is 8 and struggling with anxiety.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Hi Trish – Michelle, my co-author who is a professional counselor will tell us that anxiety is something she is seeing occur in younger and younger people. Lord, may Kate know you to be the One she can trust and the One who brings peace to her soul.

  69. I was thinking about who needs this book besides my daughter and God put on my mind my daughter’s friend Hannah B.
    My friend, Hannah’s mom, was sharing with me that Hannah feels invisible, not loved, I told her about the book but she just got a new house so they are in the transition of moving.
    Thank you.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Rosalba, I am so sorry that many girls feel this way. In the fast-paced, too-much-in-a-hurry culture we live in, our children get lost in it all.

  70. My daughter, Caroline ? yay! Congrats on this release! ?

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Thank you so much, Erin!

  71. My niece has witnessed abuse of her dad over mom, and is sad about her parents’ divorce. She has gone from outgoing to sullen over the last two short years. I would love to send her this book.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Jeanette – your niece is exactly the girl we wrote Loved & Cherished for. We all need to know the never-changing love of Father, but these precious ones especially!

  72. My daughter, Madeline, who is 8 and someday my other daughter, Kailee, who is now 6. ?

  73. I would love to give this to my daughter Michaela.

  74. Hello, I have a little sister who turned 7 just 3 days ago . Her name is Eliana and she is adopted and also my mum’s half sister. She has had a really hard life, her mum and dad died 2 years apart from each other, and her two sisters live with a different family, as my parents could only take in her and her brother, who are both very close to each other, having 4 children already. Eliana and her brother still visit their sisters, but miss them very much every day. They lived with their grandparents in the Philippines in a red zone for a year with one of their sisters. They got only fish soup from their grandparents for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for the entire time they lived with them. Their abusive Aunty, whose daughter had to be taken away from her, took them from the Philippines 2 years ago and they flew to Australia where my parents rescued them from the airport. Then they took them home and I met my new little sister. I actually have been praying for a sister since I was two, and she is so amazing, a wonderful answer to prayer. Sometimes we talk about her old home and her parents, who I didn’t see very much, even though her father was my mum’s dad, and sometimes she just starts crying because she misses them so much. Her two sisters are now living with a nonchristian family, and are drifting away from God. I dote on Eliana, and I love her very much. We like to sit together and I read aloud to her (mostly fairy books), and I would love to give Eliana this book as a late birthday present. She is still learning to read and can read a little bit, but to be honest, I’d love to read it, too. I just want Eliana to know how much she is loved by God, especially when she is going through this traumatic and sad time. I want her to know even if she is bullied or doesn’t think she is pretty enough God loves her and wants her and cares about her so much that he died for her and calls her his child and wants her to live life to the fullest and be happy like a normal little girl. Everyone deserves to be loved and cherished. Thanks for reading.

  75. Anne Perry says:

    I would give this book to Sam.

  76. LeAnn Harbert says:

    I want this book for my granddaughter Meah.

  77. I love that! So many poor children need to know that there is a God up there that cares about them.

  78. Maggie Armstrong says:

    I want to gift this to my niece Ella.

  79. kelly woods says:

    This is awesome. Congrats on the release. I would love this for my daughter, Gracie. Thank you

  80. Aunt Jenn says:

    I would give,the book to my nieces, Lauren and Malina!

  81. My twin 11 year old daughters, Lily & Lucy! ?

  82. My daughter Sawyer Marie
