Now is a pivotal time if you have girls between the ages of 12-17. According to the CDC, emergency department visits for suspected suicide attempts increased 31% among adolescent girls aged 12–17 years. If you suspect your child is at risk of hurting themselves, call the suicide prevention hotline at 800-273-8255. Seek medical help from your primary care doctor if your child shows signs of depression.
That being said, this is an extremely hard time in the lives of teen girls and the perfect time to introduce you and them to Melanie Redd, an author, blogger, speaker, and podcaster dedicated to sharing the light to others and the Bible verse, 1 Thessalonian 5:11: “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up…”
My 15-year-old daughter introduced me to the books of Melanie this winter with Live in Light and Live in Light Journal. They were on her wish-list. I read reviews, visited her website MelanieRedd.com and was so impressed by her passion for life and books that I had to interview her! This mom of 2 “awesome young adults” and wife of 30 years has a passion for helping others through God’s word.

This book is an easy way to help your teen girl “find the light” no matter where they are in their life as it pertains to God. This is a quick 5-minute devotion that helps teen girls find out who they are and what they want to be when the grow up outside of the daily stress of school, social media, crushes, girl squad drama, etc. If your daughter will commit to doing 5 minutes a day to help them find the light, I truly believe this book could impact their lives for the good – both immediately and in their future.

Each day, your teen girl will enjoy a quick devotional with practical ways they can apply that day’s scripture to their daily life that will challenge how they see themselves compared to how God sees them and how the world (social media, friends, Hollywood, etc) sees them.
