These guides for teens can help boost your teen's positivity, confidence, and happiness!
These best selling-books and guided companion journals will help your teen understand how their mind works, create a positive mindset, and build the self-confidence needed to succeed and be happy.
I'm on a mission to help teens connect to their inner strength, embody self-confidence, and own their self-worth through my books and journals for teens.
I’m a former high school dropout and teen mom turned award-winning author, mindset mentor, and nurse practitioner.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve taught thousands of teens and their parents how their minds work so they can tap into their strengths, choose their emotions, and get the results they want for a happier life.
I learned all of this the hard way. But your teen doesn’t have to.

Let customers speak for us
Great service and awesome book. It’s not only for teens because it can benefit every girl or woman. Awesome examples and easy read.
The activities and writing prompts in this journal are great. They really help me practice what I learned in the main book. And the coloring pages and borders are really pretty.
Awesome... helping me understand my inner teenager, heal and grow! Loved the explanations and insightful exercises.. The case studies helped me not feel alone in the struggle and see it was possible to overcome it
The journal is great to work through too.
I LOVE this book!!
So excited for young girls to read something that will help challenge them and see things in a positive way!
I bought these books as I struggled to understand what was going on in my oldest teen's head. This world is NOT the world I grew up in, and I had difficulty in communicating and relating to my teen. As I have 2 other girls waiting to reach this milestone, I felt this was the best investment I could find. I was right! Not only did it help my understand was they are - and will - go through, it made them feel like they aren't alone. The journal was an important addition as they were able to write down what they are experiencing and compare it to the companion book. Note that these are teens that didn't embrace journaling in the first place! This one gave them structure and direction, which was the missing piece. This has been life-altering, giving them the power of VOICE. Aside from that, the way that it is written feels like a conversation - this is what my girls loved the most about it. Not being talked TO, but WITH. As an added bonus, I felt like I could reconnect with my younger self, applying what I read to what I went through in my own teenaged years. That alone was invaluable. :)
This book is a God send. It helped us so much!! Both my daughter and myself benefited from reading it!! Thank you so much for writing this.
My daughter absolutely loves these! Such a brilliant author! Thank you so much for writing these!

Self-help textbooks for adolescents may inundate the literary marketplace, but this outstanding title surpasses the majority in its creative yet uncomplicated presentation of life-altering advice. A winner stands behind this valuable toolbox, a gleaming treasure chest for anyone who needs a psychological boost.
Jacqui’s book laid out these very important lessons (of how we have the power to create our reality with our thoughts) in very accessible language and relatable stories for a message that I know my kids are able to take in. and not only that,it also gave me language I could use that felt more relatable to use with my teens.
