Our 8-12 Year Olds Are in the Crosshairs of the Enemy

Dannah Gresh, author of Mary: Becoming A Girl of Faithfulness joins us. But first, Shawna asks: “What is the million dollar question? The question that, if answered, would radically transform your life?” A good friend asked Shawna this question at a pivotal moment in her life and answering it got her unstuck.

Then, Dannah Gresh is the bestselling author, speaker, and founder of True Girl, America’s most popular Christian tween event. She has authored over twenty books, including Lies Girls Believe.

Considered one of the leading experts on the subject of sexual theology and parenting tweens and teens, her resources have equipped over one million moms as they seek to raise their girls in confidence and truth.

Our girls are in crisis. Never have our tweens, 8-12 year olds, been in the cross hairs of the enemy like they are right now. They are being told that they can decide who they are. But God’s Word tells us we were created for His glory.

What if like Mary, our girls fell in love with Jesus and were willing to say “Yes” to whatever He has for them? Dannah’s new Bible Study Mary: Becoming a Girl of Faithfulness will help you lead your tween to know and love and remain faithful to Jesus.

Then, Perry shares, “When we suffer well, we give our suffering world a window into hope.” It’s a conversation about how our suffering is our greatestwitness to our world.

Last, you are a part of God’s family and that makes you part of the family business – spreading the good news of Jesus to the world. Shawna shares some encouraging stories of how God is moving in West Michigan right now. Are you ready to be a part of it?

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
