The following are books I used over eight years of doing small groups with my tween/teen daughters and their friends. Some of the books I used in part, some we read and discussed from cover to cover.


  • “A Girl After God’s Own Heart: A Tween Girl Adventure with Jesus”  by Elizabeth George
  • “Let’s Talk!” Good Stuff for Girlfriends About God, Guys, and Growing Up” by Danae Dobson
  • “Secret Keeper Girl: The Power of Modesty for Tweens”  by Dannah Gresh
  • “Girls of Grace”  by Point of Grace
  • “Lies Young Women Believe: and the Truth that Sets them Free” by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh
  • “The Divine Dance: If the World is Your Stage, Who Are You Performing For?”  by Shannon Kubiak Primerico
  • “Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations”  by Alex and Brett Harris

My middle daughter and I did this book together on our own which I would highly recommend for the group setting as well:

  • “God Girl: Becoming the Woman You’re Meant to Be”  by Haley DiMarco
