Books for parents of teens…

May 3, 2008

At a recent lunch for the parents of our youth I recommended two books: Age of Opportunity, by Paul David Tripp, and Girl Talk, by Carolyn Mahaney and Nicole Mahaney Whitacre. I ordered more copies of each and they have now arrived… We believe these books are great resources to aid parents in the responsibility God has given them to raise their children in the wisdom and instruction of the Lord, and we’d like to make them available to parents of our youth for less than they can buy them elsewhere. Age of Opportunity is available for $7, and Girl Talk is available for $5. 

  • Age of Opportunity is a fantastic read aimed at parents. It primarily addresses how to really engage teens in heart-level conversations (what are they treasuring? Christ or something else?), and how to help them learn to think biblically and make God-honoring decisions themselves…


  • Girl Talk is written for mothers and daughters and is intended to stimulate and guide edifying conversation between them about being a God-honoring woman. Carolyn Mahaney (CJ Mahaney’s wife) wrote it with her oldest daughter, Nicole Whitacre. I asked three mothers to read this book and let me know if they recommended it. All three did so heartily! If you’d like to know more about the book you can chat with Laura Bachle, Julie Dennis, or Denise Montgomery-Scott. You can also visit the Girl Talk blog.
