Anybody have any good ideas for books that will encourage teen girls or the ministry worker that is teaching teen girls?

Captivating- John & Staci Eldredge
Dateable- Justin Lookadoo & Hayley DiMarco

Jaclynn Schaap's books
Preparing to Be His Helpmeet - Debbi Pearl
Letters to Karen

The last two would be for older teens or those preparing for marriage. I would love to know of others!

I love Created to Be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl and Letters to Karen is my very favorite marriage book ever!

I love "Created" too! "PREPARING to be His Helpmeet" is for unmarried girls. Had you heard of that one?? I have not personally read it.

A couple of these I have never heard of! Yeah for having new books to find/read! =)

The book that came to my mind were:

Fascinating Womanhood (this was extremely helpful tome, as a college girl I read it... being raised feminist this sorted out some stinkin' thinkin')

The Lady the Lord is Looking For By Cathy Carole... this was the first Christian book I read other than the Bible... it is simple and was just what I needed as a pre-teen girl. Gave me a vision of what I wanted to grow up to be.
Blessed beyond measure wife, mommy, coffee addict, boo-boo kisser, toilet scrubber & lover of the life God has given me!

Preparing to Be a Help Meet is one I definitely recommend. It has been a great help to me personally as I am "preparing." I have not read "The Lady the Lord is Looking For" by Mrs. Corle but I have read "Heart of a Handmaiden" and I recommend that, also. Some others good books:

"Dear Princess" by Mary Landis -- written by a Mennonite woman but other than a chapter on headcoverings, it is a very good book for teen girls. It has helped me in my walk with the Lord and my relationship with my family.

"Beautiful Girlhood" by Mabel Hale

"Let Me Be a Woman" by Elisabeth Elliot

I haven't read them yet, but I've been told that Leslie Ludy's books for young ladies are very good, especially "Set-Apart Femininity".

I love Beautiful Girlhood by Mabel Hale and Let Me Be A Woman by Elisabeth Elliot too! I will have to check out the Preparing to Be a Help Meet book since two of you recommended it!

Biographies might be a good thing too. I LOVED "The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom

Another one I love is 'The excellent wife' by Martha Peace, but that is a marriage book. I wish I had read it before I got married- such wise advice for any lady!
