My iGirl conference
The conference is on January 23 at Callaway Gardens in Atlanta.

January 12, 2010. Atlanta, Georgia.  Today’s teen and tween-age girls grow up conversant in technology, texting, chatting, and Facebooking, all the while jamming to their iPod. In some ways, they speak a language and live in a world all their own. Ever wonder how to communicate with them more effectively?

A one-day conference entitled “My iGirl: How She’s Wired and How to Connect,” intends to answer just that question.  The conference, to be held in Callaway Gardens, Atlanta on Saturday, January 23, aims to help parents, DREs, and youth ministers understand and communicate better with today’s techno-savvy girls.
