For my latest "Chaos to Calm" episode, I was honored to connect with Proverbs 31 Ministries' Lynn Cowell, who is a speaker and author, and Michelle Nietert, who runs a counseling center out of Dallas, Texas. Both women are co-authors of a new devotional for tween girls (entitled Loved and Cherished) and are passionate about tween issues and faith. They answer the questions above along with many others, including: How is parenting like packing a suitcase? (Thanks, Lynn!)
