This series was inspired by our teenaged daughter Hannah after a tough transition to junior high. Instead of giving up and becoming bitter, Hannah decided to take the lessons she learned and create a series for girls her age. Julie (Hannah’s mom,) has a passion for mentoring. As she listened to Hannah create characters, Julie realized there was a message in Hannah’s work for women, too.
Each book in the Surrendering Stinkin’ Thinkin’ Series uses the theme of letting go of a lie the characters believed. There will be two key characters in each book. One, a junior high student, and the other, a woman out of school. It’s our desire to see girls of all ages (even grandmas!) to read these books and find freedom and hope in them.
Hannah created the storyline, character names and traits, plot points, and conflict. She had the vision for the cover, and directed Julie in the design. Julie wrote out Hannah’s vision and managed the writing and publishing process, staying true to Hannah’s creation. You’re Beautiful is a work of fiction, but a message of hope for you.
About You’re Beautiful:
Hayley Atkinson withdraws from her friends and new opportunities with the new mentoring group, Linked, after she is told a lie that she believes is true about herself. Sabrina Wayson is a mentor in Linked who feels she can’t help encourage girls because she’s struggling as much as they are. Can they surrender the lies and find freedom?
You’re Beautiful is now available for all eReaders. Print version is coming later this month. Stay tuned!
Hannah and I believe in this message because we’ve lived it, and chances are, you have as well. Please read, if you like it, write a review, and tell others to do the same. Thank you!
