It's that time of year again. While we love getting our girls fun Christmas gifts, it's also important to get gifts that will help feed her spirit. We know it can be hard to find gifts like that for tween girls, so here are a few ideas from our own ministry and some we love a whole lot!

1. The True Girl Subscription Box

Meet the True Girl subscription box: your daughter’s new Bible Study BFF. Intentionally packed with your tween (7-12) girl in mind, it’s full of daily devos to get her in the Word, mom+daughter dates that get you connecting, and exclusive bonus items from True Girl and other ministries we trust! It’s the most fun you’ll ever have digging into God’s Word together at home.

The True Girl subscription includes:

  • Truth-filled resources centered around an age-appropriate topic
  • Creative opportunities to discover biblical Truth together
  • Plans for fun and engaging mom+daughter dates
  • Daily devotions written with your daughter in mind

We ship a new box every 60 days. If you subscribe by December 10th, your first box will arrive in time to put it under the Christmas tree!


2. Mary: Becoming a Girl of Faithfulness 

Our newest True Girl Bible Study written just for tween girls features Mary.

Mary was living the life of an ordinary girl. But all that changed when an angel came to her with an invitation to be a part of God’s super big, ginormous plan to save the world. Sounds cool, right? Well, to be a part of God’s big plan she had to give up her plans. And she didn’t understand everything, but she knew it was going to be difficult. Even so, Mary said yes! Do you know why? She was faithful.

In Mary, a six-week Bible study, your daughter will enter Mary’s story and learn how she can become a girl of faithfulness. God doesn’t need the best athletes, the most beautiful girls, or the exceptionally talented to do great things for Him. He just needs an ordinary girl who is willing to say, “Yes.”  Mary’s life proves to us that when a True Girl responds with faith in the moment, it brings a beautiful, forever blessing.

True Girl Bible Studies feature important women from the Bible so that from their examples, we can learn what it looks like to be a True Girl. Each study is designed to help moms lead their daughters deeply into the Word of God so they can develop a steady love for Scripture. Together, moms and daughters can discover what it means to be a True Girl after God’s own heart.

3. For Girls Like You Magazine

Our daughters are growing up and wanting “to know” and be in “the know.” They are dying to watch the shows that their friends are talking about.  They are doing their best to imitate their BFFs and want to have trendy clothes just like “so and so”.  Even if they aren’t hearing it in your home, they are beginning to memorize the latest pop songs on the radio. While there may be nothing wrong with any of these things in and of themselves, they should not be the driving force behind our daughter’s identity. Think about it. What and who is defining the wants of our little girls?

As a part of the solution, For Girls Like You has removed the contradicting perspectives, questionable advertisements, and negative images, in order to provide a safe environment for our girls to freely explore their God-given passions with For Girls Like You Magazine! Use the code TG$10 for $10 off your subscription!

5. Lies Girls Believe and A Mom's Guide to Lies Girls Believe

It also helps facilitate discussion between you and your daughter.

The Mom’s Guide provides research, cultural trends, and case studies about the problems tween girls face, but also offers encouragement and biblical insight to empower you to talk with your daughter about God’s truth.

10. Our Truth-Processing Journal

The purpose of this journal is to help your daughter write something a little different that the average “dear diary” entry! With the help of our Marvelous, Sensational, Super Truth-Processing Journal your daughter can:

  • write thoughts about what she is learning in God’s Word.
  • take notes when her pastor is teaching.
  • keep track of what she's thankful for.

This Truth-processing journal is an interactive tool for your daughter to use as she builds her faith in Jesus Christ. There is so much to discover when she puts her thinking cap on and digs into God’s Word. We hope it helps your daughter find the Truth that will stick with her throughout her whole life!

Whether you choose one or all of these great gifts, come Christmas morning, your daughter will be thrilled with gifts that will help her grow closer to God this year.
