I’ve followed the Gregoire family for a few years now. Sheila Gregoire has a wonderful blog that I’ve guest posted on before, Katie Gregoire has a hilarious Youtube channel and now, Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach has an insightful book called, “Why I Didn’t Rebel.” I received a copy of Rebecca’s book to review and I think you’ll be as impressed as I am with the values she presents!

Why I Didn’t Rebel is Rebecca’s story of her upbringing and what led her to the choices she made as a teen. Rebecca was a good teen, for lack of a better term. She seeks to break the stigma of rebellious teenagers by teaching her readers concepts that make teens feel open, safe and heard. She shares the stories of her various friends who did and didn’t rebel, along with the parallels that created each situation.
I don’t have teenagers yet, but I already know that I want to look to their teen years with hope, knowing that through God, we can have some of the best years yet. This book provided so much wisdom, even for my kids at the stages they’re in now. I learned the importance of keeping an honest, real relationship and how creating a family culture can really make a difference.
I’d highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a little extra parenting advice from a former “good” teen!
