Tell us a little about yourself. I grew up in a Christian home and was saved about a week after my twin sister Melissa, when we were almost five years old. God has used so many different things in my life to help me know Him better, but some of the key ones were an open relationship with my parents, Christian friends that kept me accountable and would talk about what they were learning in God's Word with me, and attending/working at the WILDS Christian Camp in Brevard NC. The most important decision I made as a teen was to read my Bible on a daily basis.
What was your motivation behind this project? My husband and I were working at a Christian camp in Wisconsin and the Camp Director kept recommening the teen girls go through the book of Proverbs and compare the two types of women in that book of the Bible. I had recently completed a course in Biblical Womanhood in college where the final project was to write a parallel outline of those two women and knew that it was a huge undertaking. Still I felt like what the Camp Director was saying really was something that would be helpful for girls to grasp as they were making decisions that would impact that kind of woman they would be for the rest of their lives. Obviously God can change those already headed down the wrong path too, but wouldn't it be so much better if teen girls could get into the Bible and have a goal set before them, a model to strive after, and encouragement that they could become a praiseworthy woman. So, when I quit working at a Christian school a month before our first son was born, I started working on the manuscript for "The Girl in the Mirror."
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A desire to be in God's Word on a regular basis and to be the kind of lady that is beautiful to God.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It's God's WORD! Even after the book was published, I went through it again and still felt like I had further to go. We're all striving after godliness and it's a life-long pursuit.

Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Compare everything to the Word of God. Don't assume because one thing written by an author is good that everything from here on out will be. People change and not always for the better. Don't be critical, mind you, but do be careful. God's Word is the final authority and we all must be accountable to that!
