U R So Pretty (How to help our Girls know what Pretty Is …)

“U R So Pretty!” they hear, or don’t hear, every day. U R So Smart (or not). U R So Athletic or Rich or Popular or Cute (or not!) …. Every day the world makes a judgment call on our girls. 

So we have to teach girls their value every day, and help them understand what “Pretty” really is — what makes them special. Certainly the media’s not telling them; but we can.

Pretty From the Inside Out has released, my third book in the series. Beautiful Lies is for women; More Beautiful Than You Know is for teens; and Pretty … it’s all about the girls!  It’s designed to teach your girl her value, identity, and purpose.

Pretty From the Inside Out by Jennifer Strickland

I opened it myself this morning and found truth for me, and decided I’ve got to read it to with my daughter! The pages are quick to read, the truths are honest, simple, and easy-to-absorb, and the whole book is filled with goodness.  PG goodness. (relief for us moms!)

Pretty From the Inside Out will help your girl:

  • separate truth from lies
  • see herself through her Father’s eyes
  • respect boys but not let them decide her value
  • care for her body as the temple of her spirit
  • recognize the mirror, the scale, or her size don’t define her
  • see her sexuality as worth protecting
  • use social media to send positive messages
  • not allow her true image to be confused with her online image
  • recognize and exhibit the traits of real beauty, like service and respect

We are in this together!  Teaching girls their true worth is probably the most important thing we can teach them.  Order your copy today, or order 10 or more and get this message in the hands, hearts, and homes of the tween girls you reach! It would make a great Easter gift, graduation or birthday gift, or just a thoughtful present for a girl who needs a little love.

And you might be surprised, like I was, to open it yourself one morning and find truth about YOUR value speaking on every page!

“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”

Nancy Ortberg

“The Girl Perfect Study Guide shatters the lies girls and women believe and points to the ultimate truth, which really does set us free. I am confident that this study will help thousands discover a beauty, purpose, and worth that truly lasts. Thank you Jen for exposing the ‘perfect life’ and inviting girls to experience God’s ‘perfect love.'”

One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”

As a teacher, participator, and observer of public speaking for most of my life, I’ve come to realize that many speakers make one of two mistakes when interacting with their audience (especially when that audience is mainly teenagers.) They either expect their audience to climb up to their level (which feels unattainable to the crowd) or they step down to the level of their listeners (which feels cheap and pandering.) The best speakers meet their audience where they are and lead them up to where they want them to be. This feels genuine. This is what Jennifer did over the last few days at our school.
Jennifer Strickland is a funny, engaging, dynamic speaker. She shares truth with authority and credibility that comes from both experience (her story is powerful) and an obvious depth of study in the Bible. The ideas she presents about Value, Identity, and Purpose are truths everyone needs to hear.
I heartily recommend her for your conference, school retreat, or any event where you want your people to be encouraged and challenged with deep, impacting truth.
