Publisher's Description

You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.  

 
In a book based on her run-away blog post "Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls," which garnered more than 2 million views in two weeks, Kate Conner calls us to action in Enough. We all have teenage girls in our lives who we love, whether it’s a sister, friend, or daughter. Kate has identified 10 things these girls need to hear today from someone who loves her.
 
Peppered with wit and laced with grace, Kate’s list tackles relevant issues like Facebook, emotions, drama, tanning beds, modesty, and flirtation. Woven into each chapter is a powerful message of worth that transcends age, and will touch the souls of women, young and old alike: You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.
 
A former youth-worker, wife to a college minister, and a young mom in her twenties, Conner stands squarely in generational gap, the perfect place from which to bridge it. Conner offers herself as a translator, helping you to speak your teenager’s language and equipping you with a fresh perspective from which to engage your teenage girl—one that may enable her to truly hear your heart (and your wisdom) for the first time since puberty.

Author Bio

Kate Elizabeth Conner is a 27-year-old writer, speaker, and first generation southerner who spends her days learning braille, counseling teenagers via text message, and adjusting to life in middle Georgia. She is married to a college pastor and has three impossibly beautiful children who only make her crazy 97% of the time. Kate authors a self-titled blog, which received more than three million views in two years, due in part to her viral post, 10 Things I Want To Tell Teenage Girls. Kate writes about surviving parenthood, teenagers, and her twenties with her faith and sense of humor intact. She believes in music, coffee, and prose – and in all the world, nothing has taken hold of her like Christ.

    You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough. Those three little phrases are what women, young and old, all long to hear. Yet in this crazy world of hyper-sexualism those words seem to get drowned out by others that begin to erode the very essence of who we were created to be.

    In 2012 Kate wrote a spur of the moment blog post entitled Ten Things I Want To Tell Teenage Girls. In a short span of time the post went viral. Why? I would guess that it is because it spoke truth to fables that we have been trying desperately to make into reality. What are the 10 things you ask? I'll give them to you:

    1. If you choose to wear shirts that show off your boobs, you will attract boys.

    2. Dont go to the tanning bed.

    3. When you talk about your friends anonymously on Facebook, we know exactly who youre talking about.

    4. Newsflash: the number of times you say I hate drama is a pretty good indicator of how much you love drama.

    5. Follow your heart is probably the worst advice ever.

    6. Never let a man make you feel weak or inferior because you are an emotional being.

    7. Smoking is not cool.

    8. Stop saying things like, I dont care what anyone thinks about me.

    9. Dont play coy or stupid or helpless to get attention.

    10. You are beautiful. You are enough.

    If you're a momma you're probably nodding your head and giving a great big hallelujah! If you're a teen girl, it is quite possible you're rolling your eyes. For both of those very reasons you need to get a copy of each of these books. Read them together. Each chapter in each book coincides with the other book.

    I know what you're thinking . . . you've already given us the link to the blog post and the list of the 10 things. Why should we get the books? As I said earlier, Kate wrote the post on a whim. In the books she delves deeper and expounds on each subject. As a momma I'm telling you there is nothing more important than instilling in your girl that she is valued. She is a child of the King. She is royalty and she should learn to act like it. Someone gave His very life for her. She needs to know these truths. You need to know these truths! If you have a little bitty girl, get the books now and read them over and over so you will have a head start on raising her to know that above all things she is enough.

    We all know I'm a crazy reader. If it has words, I'm reading it! But I do realize that not everyone is as taken with reading as I am. So hear my heart on this. If you get only one book, get Enough. Then read chapter 10 and absorb it until it is part of your very essence. Then love your daughter enough to share it with her until the truth contained becomes part of who she is as well.

    These books would make a fabulous small group study in your youth group. Make a retreat weekend out of it. Get copies of 10 Things For Teen Girls for all the teen girls and copies of Enough for all the adult women leaders. If we could instill these truths into all the girls in our circles of influence we could change a generation. Remember, If God Is For Us . . . Who Can Stand Against Us?!!

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    I was so so super excited to get this book. If there is one thing I'm an advocate of, it's letting our girls know they are enough. To have them shut out the voice of the world and listen to the only voice that matters.

    I took this book along with us on vacation, hoping to have it read by the time we returned. The first night we were there, I took it out on the porch with us. I got comfortable and ready for a good night of reading.

    The first few pages I totally agreed with but then I came across a paragraph that made me stop. Did I misread it? I read it again. Nope, that's what it said. I though about it and read it again. I had Joe read it. I just couldn't get past that one statement. It might be me overreacting. It might have just struck a nerve with me that it wouldn't strike with anyone else. This is what it said:

    Men like to look at women. Even married men. Even happily married men. Even good, kind, respectful, stand-up men. Even Christian men. Men are hardwired to enjoy women.

    While I do agree with that statement, for some reason I found that offensive. To me, it made it sound like happily married Christian men like to look at "women" and it's okay because they are hardwired that way. As in everything, we each have our own opinion. Wanting to give the author the benefit of doubt, I continued to read it. And boy, am I thankful I did. Had I stopped there, I would have missed so so so many good points. Some that I've even blogged or wrote on FB about myself!

    She goes on to touch on 10 subjects we should tell our teen girls...

    1. If you choose to wear shirts that show off your boobs, you will attract boys.

    2. Don't go to a tanning bed {this one I'm not so sure of, this Mama loves to tan}

    3. When you talk about your friends anonymously on Facebook, we know exactly who youre talking about.

    4. Newsflash: the number of times you say I hate drama is a pretty good indicator of how much you love drama.

    5. Follow your heart is probably the worst advice ever.

    6. Never let a man make you feel weak or inferior because you are an emotional being.

    7. Smoking is not cool.

    8. Stop saying things like, I dont care what anyone thinks about me.

    9. Dont play coy or stupid or helpless to get attention.

    10. You are beautiful. You are enough.

    I know, right?!? Those are some amazingly honest and TRUE points our girls need to realize and remember. What I eventually realized is Kate is just honest and forward, not holding anything back {like another girl I know}. Had I of judged this book by that little quip that I didn't like, I would have missed out on a great book. So I guess the old adage don't judge a book by a yucky paragraph is true.

    B & H Publishing Group provided this book to me for free in exchange for this honest review.

    This book contains practical, common sense advice for teenage girls, mixed in with wisdom from the Bible. It is based on a list the author made called, Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls. She posted it on her blog during the wee hours one Sunday morning. Later, when she came home from church, she found she had really struck a nerve because her blog had received hundreds of thousands of views.

    In the book, the overriding theme is: you are enough. God loves you, and you dont have to be anything more than what He created you to be, that is enough. Girls can make themselves crazy trying to conform to the worlds idea of beauty. They may change the color of their hair, change their skin tone with tanning beds, or starve themselves in an effort to be beautiful. The author says enough about all of this effort to change the way God made you. Accept how you are created, you are Gods masterpieceand that is enough.

    This book contains ten sections. The author writes about emotions, social media, and following your heart. And she does so in a very creative way.

    For example, most teenage girls are very interested in boys. But, a lot of them are disappointed in the type of boys that are usually interested in them. Kate advises girls that if they arent getting attention from the right kind of guy, they need to change the bait they use.

    In other words, the girl is the bait. If she wants a guy to like her for her personality, she will need to focus on making her personality be what is most noticeable. By the same token, if a girl dresses to draw attention to her body, then she will catch a guy whose interest in her is all about her physical attributes.

    The author is a mother in her late 20′s, she is married to a pastor, and the two of them have been working with teens since college. This fun read covers lots of serious topics with some great suggestions. She states everything in life begins and ends with a solid faith in Christ. I enjoyed it, and learned some things. If you are a teen or have a teen in your house, this book is for you. If you dont fall into those categories, but want to understand teen girls a bit more, this 5-star book is also for you. This book just might change a girls life.
