This book covers eight major topics: taming our tempers, sarcasm, gossip, gracious speech, sweet and salty language, asking for forgiveness, whether to speak up or remain silent, and how God’s word can alter our words.
Praying we keep our cool this summer and that our words melt the tension of difficult situations.
|You Are Free: Be Who You Already Are
By Rebekah Lyons / Zondervan“What should I do with my life?” It’s a question we’ve all asked at one time or another. Dismantling the notion that having a “calling” is a rare privilege for the exclusive few, Lyons makes a prophetic call for women to become the person God’s already designed them to be! Foreword by Ann Voskamp.
- I first read this book with a team of Varsity Cheerleaders in the early 2000’s. It’s still as good a read and study today as it was then! Some things may never change, but we still need to know how to handle Mean Girls.
Mean Girls, Revised and Updated *Click to view*
By Hayley DiMarco / Revell
Why is it so tough to be a girl? Whether it’s at school, in the mall, or even online, girls are mean to each other. Most girls will admit that they have been a victim of a mean girl. In fact, many will say that all girls are basically mean. Whether they’re teasing a girl because of how she looks, making up rumors to torment others, or launching an online campaign to destroy their target, girls can be just plain ruthless. This one-of-a-kind book has helped end the cycle of meanness for tens of thousands of girls. Mean Girls is a call to spiritual strength. A call to stand firm. It calls girls to face the beasts in their lives head on. In short, it’s the answer girls need for the problem they never thought could go away. This completely revised edition of Mean Girls will reach junior highers and high schoolers where they are with the help and advice they crave. It has been redesigned inside and out to match the award-winning look of DiMarco’s other popular books.

|Present Over Perfect
By Shauna Niequist / Zondervan
Busyness drains our souls and harms our bodies. When you don’t have a moment to be still, how can the still, small voice of God’s wisdom and love speak into your life?
Shauna Niequist was in a season of extreme busyness that finally broke her enough to become desperate for change. In Present Over Perfect, Shauna shares what she’s learned in her journey toward slower living, which has become more abundant, fruitful living. Come alongside to rest, play, and recreate. What you’ll find there satisfies more than you can imagine.
|The Broken Way
By Ann Voskamp / Zondervan
Brokenness doesn’t only find us in the big things–things like illness, hardship, or grief. It also finds us in the every day stinging moments when we feel forgotten, or under-appreciated by our loved ones, or sense the inevitable change years of living has marked on our hearts. We are fragile and we know it. Sometimes, living with Christ in a messed-up world feels less like victory and more like walking uphill. How do we walk in a way that both glorifies Jesus and bears witness to our weakness?
From the best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts comes an impassioned message: We are desperately loved by Jesus just as we are, and his love compels us to be broken open for others! You’ll be deeply encouraged by Voskamp’s thoughts on how God takes flawed and imperfect sinners, redeems us, and makes us useful in his kingdom.
