Jacquelyn Anderson has had a lot of experience listening to girls and weighing in on their relationship challenges and concerns from the time she was a teenager, through college, and now as a high school English teacher in the Pacific Northwest.
Raised by two fellow high school teachers, Jacquelyn can attest to how difficult the teenage years can be regarding dating and relationships and how important it is for parents and their daughters to have open communication during this critical time. That’s why she has partnered with her father, Daniel Anderson, to co-author The 10 Myths of Teen Dating: Truths Your Daughter Needs to Know to Date Smart, Avoid Disaster and Protect Her Future, to be published by David C. Cook in September 2016. As a former teenager and daughter of a father who freely admits to making a lot of mistakes during her formative teenage dating years, Jacquelyn offers key insights at key moments giving parents an inside track into the minds of their daughters, their confusing culture, and how they, as parents, can help their teens guard their hearts and date smart—with their futures in mind.
When she is not investing in teenage lives at work, she can be found spending time with her girlfriends, her family, her wonderful boyfriend, reading a great book, attempting to be a better bowler, and growing in Christ at Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon.
