TGIF Enews – Girls & Anxiety 🌓

With holiday season busyness, I’m a couple days late with this. Guessing you understand. 😉  🌲  🕎  🌓  🎉
Dec 16 was Jane Austen’s 243rd birthday. Her novels changed literature by focusing on everyday people rather than heroes and gods. They are still excellent reading for everyone interested in human nature with all its foibles. They’re favorites with me and my daughters!
This week I’m recommending one exceptional yearlong series of articles and resources related to raising strong girls.  I hope they’re helpful to you and your girl, too! They’re great starting points for listening conversations with her.
Sara Israelson-Hartley and Lois Collins of the Deseret News anchored the entire series on teen anxiety. Their reporting and writing have notably unusual depth, lack of sensationalism, understanding, nuance and many practical resources, compared to most news coverage of child anxiety. It includes so much help it’s like reading a book on the topic. Congratulations are due to everyone who worked on it! It will take some time, but I recommend reading the whole series linked here:  
Thanks for reading. If you enjoyed this enews I’d love for you to pass it on to others who may be interested. You can subscribe if a friend forwarded it to you. 
See you next Friday, same time, same place. 
Nancy Gruver, Founder
P.S. Let me know the topics and issues that you’d like to get more resources on so I can do my best to include what’s on your mind about the girls in your life.  Tell us on this short google form

Then I scoured my parents’ bookshelves for things that might interest me. Whether the girls you care about love reading or are …
