Dear Teenage Girl,

Fill in the blank:

If I could offer only one piece of advice to a teenage girl, I would say________________________. 

Tonight, my daughter is having a slumber party for her 14th birthday. Ten teenage girls will be crowding my house with giggles, shrieks, and who knows what else. My husband and Myles rented a hotel room–they’re not sticking around for it, but my friend “Jane” is coming (with her daughter) to spend the night. 

We did the same thing last year, only Tim went to Thailand. LOL On a missions trip–not to escape. At least he said it was a missions trip. 😉 

I blogged about my daughter getting lost on our street in the subdivision on that night and the hoopla that went on. You can read it for fun HERE! 

Have a great weekend! Can’t wait to share the advice you leave in the comments with her.

  1. Learn to rise above the drama of high school.

  2. Choose kindness. Choose kindness. Choose kindness. One thing that needs to be said at least three times.

  3. Be passionately in love with Jesus — all other loves will follow in due time. And not quite equally as important but a close second, learn to love coffee with all your heart.

  4. Be a lover of the underdog. Jesus is.

    I remember that blog post about your daughter getting lost. 🙂

    Happy slumbering!

  5. Seek only God's approval. Let the rest roll off your back–be CONFIDENT in who He made you to be.

  6. In fewer years than you'll believe, all the stuff that seems so important now won't matter a bit. Keep it all in perspective. Happy birthday Bailey!

  7. All those insecurities you're covering up…everybody has them.

    Happy 14th!

  8. Remember that your Mr. Right is worth waiting for. Don't settle for Mr. Right Now just because you're afraid you won't get anyone else.

  9. Ya'll are really giving great advice and I can't wait for her to read all these! Thank you so much! 🙂

  10. A word for u jessie…enjoy every moment with bailey…i promise u will blink and she will b looking at colleges…and then going away…even if u r tired or busy…b sure to make time for her as often as u can…you will b glad u did. 🙂

  11. Dont b in a hurry to grow up…u have you whole life to b a grown up…enjoy being a teen!!

  12. You are beautiful. Really, really beautiful.

  13. Always wait for God's best. Satan will generally offer HIS best, right before God offers you the VERY BEST. Wait for it.
