I’ve been searching through scripture and asking God about how well I love. You know how the Spirit will press on you a bit, repeating a nudge to get your attention? Well, this week, ever since Tuesday night, I’ve been hearing this repeated phrase, “Don’t just say you love, love sincerely, from the heart.”

Just finished writing a post that has been burning in my heart for weeks ... it's a sequel to my open letter to teen girls.  I wrote about hard subjects - to teen boys this time.  Praying this reaches the young men who need it most. http://heartshomeward.com/2016/07/01/an-open-letter-to-teen-boys/

So, today, I felt an urge to step out. I heard another writer, Holly Gerth, say that we should write in a way that it scares us. I got what she meant. Don't write safe, predictable dribble that stays in the comfort zone. Write bold. Write brave. Write in ways that stretch your skills and on topics that might not seem "usual" for you.

Funny, the day after I read Holly's encouragement I felt led to write this open letter to teen girls. Just a heads up - I do talk sex here, so this is for the teen girl who is out in the midst of the culture right now. If you know a teen girl or the mom of a teen girl, you might want to read this and see if it would be a blessing to them.

Sometimes we feel frazzled and burnt out in the day to day life of parenting. It is essential that we learn to build in times of rest and refreshment. Come be encouraged:
