Questions of the Author, Myklin Cox
1. Why did you
write What Every Girl Should Know?
"A dear woman of the Lord approached me about teaching at a local homeschool ministry
that she and her husband were starting in the area. She told me of her idea to have a
girl's class on all the things young women should know these days. It took a little
convincing on her part and a lot of prayer on mine, but in the end I agreed to teach the
class. The material in What Every Girl Should Know
stemmed from that class."

2. What is the
Scriptural basis behind it?
"When I knew I was going to teach a class on things every girl should know, I began
delving through the Scriptures to see what God had to say on the issue. I looked up the
word 'know' in the Bible and the Lord just starting putting together material based on
those verses. For example, James 4:4 says, 'know ye not that the friendship of the world
is enmity with God?' That verse was a perfect launching pad to open a discussion about
Godly friendships. Before I knew it, chapters and topics began forming faster than I could
type! He simply gave me key Scriptures describing things we all should know that could be
applied to a girl's life as well. I wanted the girls in my class to be able to take some
of these lessons home with them, so I thought I would give them a few handouts each week.
Before I knew it, those 'few' handouts had turned into a full size book!"

Girl Should Know. It really just depends on the girl. Everyone's a little bit

6. How can What Every Girl Should Know be used?

styles. That is why it can be used in so many different settings! Some of the ways people

homeschooling curriculum, virtuous woman Bible study for young girls, and so much more.
