A Note From the Author Throughout high school I've seen girls walk away, leave their faith, and end up completely shipwrecked spiritually and physically. I've also seen girls trust God, follow His leading, and live exceptional, adventurous lives in His glory. What's the difference? Often the outcome was determined by questions and insecurities that started in middle school. This is why I wrote Just Us Girls. About the Author Hannah Duggan is a young woman fervent about God's grace and His will for the young people of this generation. As a worship leader, dance instructor, and Bible Study leader, Hannah is committed to encouraging and investing in the spiritual growth of the youth in her church and around the world.

Kathy Newman, Women's Ministry Leader at Calvary Chapel Windward "I loved Hannah as a leader because she's young and fun and always positive and she's just an amazing influence on us." Peyton, age 13 "I'm so glad Just Us Girls talked about how we are all beautiful. We forget that God made us for who we are, and that we should appreciate the things that make us different." Tierney, age 12 Praise for the Books of Hannah Duggan "I couldn't put it down - finishing it in two days.

Moms and daughters will be empowered to embrace the girls of grace God designed them to be instead of conforming to society’s mold of normal. As a mom of two daughters, Catherine understands how unique the mother/daughter bond truly is. A few years ago, she looked tirelessly for a Bible study to share with her tween daughter. Catherine found countless options for children and teens but very few for the tween age group—and none of these options were designed for moms and tween daughters to share together. Recognizing an unfulfilled need, Catherine wrote Becoming a Girl of Grace. Moms and daughters will take a closer look at some of the amazing ladies of the Bible and the character traits they model for modern tween girls. These women of yesterday have a lot to share with the girls of today! Dealing with mean girls and bullies, feeling left out, and learning to like oneself are not new social dilemmas. The Bible is full of examples of strong females who chose to follow God and pursue faith despite what was happening in their world and cultures.

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.
