If your life includes a teenage girl you love and care about, well have I got a treat for you! Having two teenage girls myself, I know the pressures and challenges that they face every day. And I have to admit that sometimes being a parent of teens, loving them as much as I do, and trying to teach them to make good decisions, can get exhausting!
So I’ve asked my sweet friend and fellow Proverbs 31 speaker Lynn Cowell to join us and chat about her brand new book His Revolutionary Love, which was written to speak to the heart of teen girls who need to know Jesus loves them.
What mom couldnt use a little help to reach their teen’s heart for God…. and Lynn has a passion for empowering wise women to raise wiser daughters.
So without further delay, please meet Lynn (www.lynncowell.com):
As a speaker and writer with Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lynn Cowell lives in North Carolina with her husband of 24 years and her three teenage children. The Cowells enjoy being outside whether it is hiking, fast pitch softball or white water rafting.
Lynn’s heartbeat is empowering women with confidence through Jesus’ radical love leading them to make wise decisions. She is very excited about the release of her first book “His Revolutionary Love: Jesus’ Radical Pursuit of You”; a study for young women.
Sushi, well worn sweatshirts and anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter are her top three favorites.
Now, below you can watch a quick clip of Lynn telling of her passion for working with teen girls.
Lynn, what prompted you to write His Revolutionary Love?
When I was 19, I discovered a side of Jesus I had never seen before. I had known Him as my savior, shepherd and friend, but I was still looking for more. It was then that I found Him to be the perfect, unconditional love I was always looking for. I found He wanted to be more than the God I served; He wanted to be the God I loved.
Years later someone I dearly loved was going through her third divorce. I asked Jesus why that wasn’t me. He revealed to me that falling in love with Him had filled my heart and completed me. I had discovered as a teen that if a guy doesn’t like me it doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with me. I already had God’s approval and it had nothing to do with me. Jesus is crazy about me and that is enough. Spreading this truth is my passion.
What is your greatest desire for the girls who pick up your book?
My prayer is that each young woman who reads “His Revolutionary Love” will discover the Love that has always wanted them and that this Love will fill their hearts for a lifetime. I hope they will find confidence, truth and power that will ruin them for a mundane life. I want them to be ignited with passion for Jesus that will revolutionize their lives with real change.
I want each girl to realize that love, be it from a boyfriend or a dad, can never fill the love gap in our hearts. Only Jesus can.
