NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  (May 20, 2015) B&H Kids, the children’s imprint of B&H Publishing, announces the first two books in a multi-book deal with best-selling and award-winning author Vicki Courtney. Courtney is a well-known speaker on parenting and women’s issues and has written multiple books targeting teens and their parents including the best-selling series Five Conversations You Must Have With…Your Son or Daughter (B&H). 


The first two books from B&H Kids are titled Can You Relate? How To Handle Parents, Friends, Boys, and More and Cherish: Cultivating Relationships with Parents, Friends, Guys, and More and will release in February 2016. Courtney has seen the impact of relationships in the lives of young women, saying: “After a decade in the trenches of ministering to tween and teen girls, I’ve come to realize that their relationships are the practice field for life. These resources are age-appropriate guides to help girls navigate the tricky terrain of friendships, boys, family, and faith with a solid biblical foundation.”

Courtney intentionally wrote each book for a specific season in a girl’s life. Can You Relate? is written for young tweens, 8 to 12 years old. Cherish is targeted to older girls 13 years and up. Both books contain more than 70 articles, full-color illustrations and quizzes to keep readers – and their parents – engaged with the material. Both are priced at $14.99 trade paper format in a 7×9 size, perfect for tucking into backpacks or purses.

“Vicki Courtney has a heart for girls and the people who love them,” says B&H Kids Publisher Dan Lynch. “We are honored to partner with her in coaching young girls with a positive, Biblical world view.”

Vicki Courtney is a speaker and the best-selling author of many books and Bible studies. Among her popular writings are the ECPA Christian Book Award winners TeenVirtue and TeenVir tue Confidential. Vicki and her husband have three grown children, a son-in-love, two daughters-in-love, and two grandsons. They live in Austin, Texas where they are blessed to have all of their children living nearby.
