StandeBook - 2015
With Stand: Staying Balanced with Answers for Real Teen Life, author, speaker and TV show host, Shannon Perry speaks the raw, but real truth to teen/tween girls, offering practical and spiritual advice to help them make the best decisions for their lives. Though Shannon holds a Master's Degree in Education and Counseling and is a Certified Instructor in Parenting and Crisis Counseling, she sought the input of ten teen girls who she met with regularly for several months in her home. The girls shared their real life issues, offering Shannon a personal glimpse into the topics that affect teenagers today. Stand addresses the most pertinent questions that concern young women, offering real-life advice on topics such as friendships, dating, self-esteem and body image, bullying, cutting, gender identity, sex, technology, and parental communication. Using wit, wisdom, and scriptural references. Shannon speaks in a language teen and tween girls understand. Shannon is currently embarking a national speaking tour for a mother/teen daughter conference entitled IN HER SHOES, and this book will be one of the main resources used for that conference. Shannon is also using her gifts as a songwriter and singer to record a CD to coincide with the conference and book. A music video of one of the songs has already been penned by Shannon and Lifeway Christian Resources' Songwriter of the Year, Paul Marino. The song entitled "Overlooked" is now a music video, directed by Telly Award-winning director, Jeff Kubach. For more information, visit www.ShannonPerry.com.
