Tell us a little about yourself. I'm Sissy Goff, one of the authors for Mirrors and Maps. I work with Melissa Trevathan, who is my boss and the other author of the book. Between the two of us, we've been working with kids for over 55 years. At Daystar, I counsel girls from ages 5 and up. I also lead group counseling sessions, which are really just a group of girls that go to dinner and talk. And we have an amazing summer camp that I am so grateful to be a part of. Actually, my dog and I BOTH get to be a part of.
What was your motivation behind this project? We wrote a book called Raising Girls for parents of girls. As we were writing it, we realized that a lot of the things we were telling parents would be really helpful for girls to know, too. We wanted them to hear from other girls, as well--girls who were may be a little farther ahead on this journey of growing up.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Basically, these books give girls insight into what is going on inside of them and why things are sometimes so confusing. Our other hope was that girls would finish the book with a better sense of who they are and who God has uniquely made them to be.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I think this book made me think a lot about my own growing up. I have seen so much more about how God has been using everything--EVERYTHING in my life to form me into what I'm doing and who I am today.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Frederick Buechner, Madeleine L'Engle, Brennan Manning, Eugene Peterson, Henri Nouwen--to name a few.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: So much of Mirrors and Maps, Growing Up and Raising Girls are what we hope to be a conversation. We believe counseling is really coming alongside someone in their journey to who God has made them to be and offering encouragement and hope. We want you to feel the same thing as you read these book. Enjoy!
