The Most Encouraging Post You Will Read Today

Would you be thrilled to meet 30 young ladies who are dedicated to living for God and giving voice to His work in their lives? Then let me introduce you to a group of writers who will give you hope for the future: Godly Girls for God.

Their Webzine, Godly Girls for God unites 30 writers, ages 11 to 25. They post devotionals and stories every Friday. Follow this link to peruse their site. If you know a young writer who might be interested in writing for the site, you’ll find an application here.

Their Purpose: “Our heart is to honor Christ with our writing and to let God speak through us in order to bring others to Christ. Everyone has a unique story. Everyone has experienced God’s work in their lives to get them to where they are today. We strive to keep the story going, by having real girls writing the truth.”

Founder: This webzine is the brainchild of Hillary Beth Koenig. Hillary, now 24 and married, was 15 when the webzine really took off.

Why did Hillary gather these girl writers together? In Hillary’s words, “God has taught me that He is working all over the world in hearts, and that we are far more alike than we realize as true believers in Jesus. It was reinforced to me that we are not alone, and that we can find others going through very similar things. Satan’s biggest lie is that ‘no one else could possibly understand me.’ It isolates us in a way that makes it hard for us to open ourselves up to God, and others in healthy ways.”

Their Book: The GGFG have published a book called Write for Him: The Story of Godly Girls for God. This is the story of how God brought together an online community of girls, bound by their writing hobby. The 25 young ladies featured in the book come from many different backgrounds and represent 10 different countries—Australia, Burundi, Canada, Ghana, Indonesia, Ireland, Russia, the Philippines, Zimbabwe, and the United States.

The girls gathered their devotionals, fictional stories, testimonies, poems, and quizzes into a book. The topics reflect how the girls put their trust in God to overcome addictions, put away distorted views of God, cope with losing a parent, deal with bullies, face their fears about the future, and trade the messages of this world for the Truth. The authors range in age from 11 to 24.

  1. There is a great need for quality written material for our young ladies. I’ll be checking this out for my own daughter. Thank you for the review.

  2. I think this is just a marvelous. I love that these girls are going to write about their experiences with Christ. We need to hear good things about the young adult youth of today. Our world is a hard one to be growing up in. I will look forward to this one.
    Blessings!

    I write for GGFG, and I can tell you-it is a powerful ministry! We have watched the site take off in the past few weeks and can only say that it is God’s work! Hilary is so committed to the site and is encouraging to the writers. We have about three new articles every Friday, so check it out! Also, we have closely moderated forums for girls of all ages that are totally safe. Check them out: http://www.godlygirlsforgod.websitetoolbox.com
    It’s such a wonderful opportunity to write for GGFG….I love it! :) The book is amazing!
