  1. I was once a mean girl, but with God’s grace I was able to say goodbye to her. A sign that hangs in my office says “We need to change what we say and what we allow to be said in front of us”. I am sorry but I do not know who to credit for that quote. Loved your article on Miley.

  2. I am so excited for this book – so much so that I bought it to read myself. I can’t wait to get started (after I finish reading Grace for the Good Girl! 🙂 )

  3. This is so great, I wish they jad this when I wuz n school. It wuz a total nightmare. I am teachingy daughter to b komd regardless pf jpw ppl treat u. I tell her to let good handle it.

  4. Annie,

    Absolutely loved this post! This is such a needed topic for women everywhere and of every age. Our women’s Bible study is “The Words a Woman Speaks”. It basically talks not only about the words we use, but how we say them and when. Too many fights & misunderstandings happen due to wrong words spoken unkindly. Let’s all Kill the Mean Girl!!

    God Bless!
