Show your teenage daughter that she’s beautiful, because she’s HIS GIRL

I have two daughters, aged 13 and 11, and I’ve been a teacher of teenagers for the past 8 years (with the slight majority of them being girls).  If I’ve learned anything about teen girls, it’s that one of their biggest issues is self-image.  I might be mistaken, but at no other point in life would a woman be more conscious of how she looks and what others think of her than in her teenage years.  Not surprisingly, it is common to see teen girls struggle at this point in their lives, as they often feel ugly, unloved, and awkward.  A few never recover for their experiences and acquire scars that stay a lifetime.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Elevate (formerly called JZone) is a youth organization dedicated to take students to the next level, as their tagline goes, and on August 9, 2013, they will have an event called Becoming His Girl.  As you can guess by the song in the video teaser above (Beautiful, by one of my favorite CCM bands, Group 1 Crew…see them plus other awesome CCM artists in this blog post), the event is to show teenage girls that they are indeed beautiful and very much loved for who they are, because they are His girl.

If you are a parent of a teenage girl, and you live in Cagayan de Oro, then I suggest that you make it a priority to bring her to Becoming HIS GIRL this August 9, 2013, 6pm.  It will work wonders for what many teenage girls struggle with, self-image.

(Note:  for great books that teen girls can read to enhance themselves, go to my older blog entry here)

Then you'd do well to have her attend Elevate's youth meetings regularly.  My daughter does, and I'm very happy with what they do with her.  Ditto for some of the greatest, most wonderful female students I have ever taught.  A large part of who they are is because of Elevate.
