70% of tween girls aren’t reading their Bibles. At least that’s what moms told me when I had coffee with hundreds of them. I asked the mothers if their girls were reading their Bibles and praying daily. Here’s what they said:
- 30% said "yes."
- 48% said "no."
- 22% said they weren't sure.
I’ve been talking with moms about how to solve this problem. One thing I learned is this: it’s difficult for Christian moms to find age-appropriate tools created just for their girl. These women wanted deep and relevant books, Bible studies, and other engaging resources for their daughters.
One tool moms sometimes talked about was a podcast created just for their daughters! You asked. And this month, through a partnership with Revive Our Hearts, we’re delivering.
Introducing the new True Girl Podcast!
The True Girl podcast is a 10- to 12-minute mom+daughter connecting experience that introduces 7-12-year-old girls to biblical Truth on relevant and important topics during the time that they can drive from home to school . . . or church . . . or the grocery store. (If you wanna binge, you’ll have to go on vacation!)
Season #1, 8 Conversations about True Beauty & Dignity, will help your girl discover her true worth through Jesus Christ! This debut season will launch practical mom+daughter conversations that dispel the world’s lies about how we look and feel. I will be joined by Staci Rudolph as we encourage the pursuit of inner beauty by spending time with God. Beloved True Girl Bible study teacher Chizzy Anderson also joins us as the narrator of several dramatic stories, and introducing Claire Black as our announcer!
You’ll find the new episodes of the True Girl podcast on our website each Wednesday! And we’re thrilled to let you know that it’s also posted along with the rest of the Revive Our Hearts podcast family.
Turn the carpool into a treasured time when you and your daughters hear Truth from God’s Word! And stay in the driver’s seat of some of the most important conversations you need to have with your daughter.
Our True Girl theme verse:
"So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31,32
Mom, the best way to teach your daughter to live like an authentic True Girl is to live like an authentic True Woman. And to do that, you've got to get your life lined up with the Truth of the Bible. Listen to Dannah Gresh every weekday on Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth's Revive Our Hearts podcast. The program features biblical teaching, interviews that offer godly advice, and other opportunities to abide in God's Word.
