Journal Buddies:
Strengthening Self-esteem & Self-confidence of Teen Girls


Ask a girl to list the stuff that she really likes about herself and she will likely list a few things. Ask her to list the stuff that she doesn’t like about herself and she just might need someone to stop her!

On the other hand, she might not be sure how to answer either question. A new and dynamic book titled Journal Buddies: A Girl's Journal for Sharing and Celebrating Magnificence directly addresses this concern and is, in fact, a powerful and simple tool to help build the self-esteem and self-confidence of any girl.

Journal Buddies is part diary and part interactive journal and is an excellent tool for strengthening the self-esteem and self-confidence of any girl, age 8 - 17. Unlike traditional diaries and journals, this is a journal that’s shared and that facilitates the development of positive relationships in the lives of girls.

Because mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, teachers, religious members, mentors, or friends are powerful and positive role models in the lives of young girls, they all make excellent journaling buddies. Moreover, upon completion, Journal Buddies becomes a cherished keepsake that a girl can reflect upon time and again throughout her life.

Journal Buddies is an innovative book that any girl would love to share with her family members, mentors, or friends.

Whether she picks one buddy, or a whole slew of them, they will share an unshakeable support system that will encourage each girl to cherish her wonderful self and her wonderful support system. What better way to celebrate magnificence than through the wisdom and laughter of your most loved family, friends, and mentors?
