June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

A Little Girl Talk

"Hey Dawn, what's up?" asked Elaine as she walked towards her best friend who was sitting on her front porch. "What are you reading?" she continued as she saw Dawn looking intently at something.

"The latest issue of GT."

"Oh, it's out already? Did you get me one? What's in it this time?”
"I was just reading that the next issue is the seventh anniversary issue."

"Wow! Time really flies!"

"Yeah, do you remember when we started getting Girl Talk back in fifth grade?"
"We felt so grown up getting a teen girl magazine."

"Now look at us, almost all grown up."

"Uhhmm, Girl Talk really feels like an old friend. It’s helped me a lot through the years," replied Elaine.

"What helped you most?" asked Dawn.

“Remember the interview with Tinnyse Johnson?”

"Yeah" Dawn replied.

"Well after hearing her talk about how she brought up her GPA from a 1.9 in tenth grade to a 2.99 before graduation it made me want to try harder especially after reading some of the things she went through. What about you?" she asked Dawn.

"I really liked Vinzanna Patrick because she was in it twice. I remember the first time she was in she was so real! She was in twelfth grade and she talked about being punished by her parents for sneaking out to a party. It showed that the Spotlight Teens aren't perfect, just girls like us. I also liked the follow up interview where she's following her dream in college.” Dawn replied.


“What about articles?” Dawn continued
“I like the one with the mother who wrote in response to a story,” Elaine responded, “remember where the daughter was supposed to be going to class but went to the movies with her boyfriend instead?”

"That one was good,” Dawn laughed.” “I bet her daughter wouldn't try that."

"Girl, if she did I wouldn't like to be in her shoes” Elaine shivered dramatically.

“Lanie you know your Mommy is just as bad,” Dawn joked. “Wait a minute I think that lady has something in here too; it's called, The Issue of Trust, From a Mother's Perspective.

“Hmmm, that sounds interesting." Elaine said. “And you’re right Dawn, Mommy is worse. I speak from experience, remember Dion?”

"Yeah, aren’t you lucky you lived to tell the tale” Dawn joked “. What’s your favorite piece of advice from GT?” she continued.

“That's easy,” replied Elaine, “I memorized it remember the Jennifer Hudson article?”

“Yep, did you know she won an Oscar???”

“Of course girl, we watched it together remember?”

“That was you I watched it with?”

“Oh stop being silly, now back to my favorite piece of advice.”
“Believe in yourself; believe in your dreams Believe that you CAN succeed! Believe that if you work hard there’s nothing you can’t do
Dawn quietly joined in with Elaine,
There’s power in belief young lady, Believe that God will make your dreams come true.”
“I really hope GT stays around for a long, long time. Dawn said quietly, “I'll probably be reading when I'm 30.”

“Me too,” Elaine said as both girls sat silently for a moment.
"Okay now enough talk,” Elaine said breaking the silence. “Did you get a copy for me?"

"You know it girl!" Dawn passed Elaine her copy and they settled down to read the latest issue of Girl Talk.

Too cute :) - You know, as I was reading this post, I was reminder of Proverbs 13 I read yesterday...hard work does pay off and fulfilling dreams :)
The one that really struck me yesterday was Proverbs 13:12
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life."
Blessings to you and yours...
