You may remember Kate Conner sharing her publishing journey with us during last year’s Everyday Author series in this post, this post, and this post. Today, I’m so excited to be celebrating with her and bragging on her NEW BOOK, to be released August 1:
You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.
I’ve followed Kate’s blog for a while. What draws me to read each and every one of her posts is her ability to engage me as a reader, weaving the wisdom and truth of Scripture through the humor of everyday life observation. Enough is no different. Based on her viral post Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls, Kate explores a list of things every teenage girl should know from the people who love her most.
In her own words . . .

It’s not just about teenage girls
I don’t have girls, and it’s been a few years since I’ve worked with teenagers, but this book gripped me in ways I was almost unprepared for. I laughed, and cried, and highlighted my way through truths that spoke very clearly to my own heart, and I’m dealing with them still. Teenage girls are not the only ones who struggle with concepts of beauty, perception, emotion, and belonging, but what a gift to start that education young.
I finished reading this book (in record time!) with three thoughts:
- Man, that was an incredible book!
- I wish someone would have read this book for me, when I was a teenager.
- Thank God it’s never too late to learn important things.
