#232: Treasured with Courtney DeFeo

Raising daughters is amazing/overwhelming. Today we are focusing on pre-teen girls but we also touch on the general wellness that all of us mothers are trying to maintain over here. In Courtney’s experience, our girls turn a corner around first and second grade - when things aren’t just about cool tutus and everyone being friends. Courtney is really passionate about this time in life, so with her girls, she tackles 6 subjects: identity, friendship, body, emotions, and technology in a fun and interactive way. Courtney DeFeo is most known for being a factory of ideas for families. It’s her desire to lead a life that radiates God’s love in action and His grace along the way. As a former marketing professional for Chick-fil-A, Courtney has a history of creating memorable programs and ideas that motivate others to action. She is the author of In This House, We Will Giggle (https://courtneydefeo.com/book/) , creator of ABC Scripture Cards and the kindness movement Light ‘Em Up Acts. Recently, Courtney launched a new study in collaboration with Parent Cue entitled Treasured  (https://treasuredgirlz.com/) designed for tween girls and their moms. Courtney’s most honorable mention is her husband Ron and their two wildly creative girls (Ella, 13 and Larson, 10).
