The world you live in promotes sex as the answer to just about everything. The pressure to go along with the crowd is greater than ever before, and it's easy to compromise in little ways that are a lot more harmful than they seem. You and your friends may become caught up in destructive relationships or sexual activities without even knowing how you got there. You just want to be normalto fit in, to be liked, to look attractive to the opposite sex. But are you paying too high a price?
This counterpart to the award-winning Every Young Man's Battle can help you:
· learn how the sexual battle begins in your heart and mind
· understand your hunger for attention from guys
· recognize and avoid the potential pitfalls awaiting young women on the journey toward adulthood and possibly marriage
· find out how the media, novels, fashion, internet chat rooms, and body and beauty obsessions influence your sexual choicesand what you can do about it
· guard your mind, heart, and body against sexual and emotional compromise
· develop a deeper, more satisfying level of intimacy with God
Whether you have so far protected yourself emotionally and sexually, feel that you've been robbed of your purity, or have given in to temptation in some way, this book can help you achieve or reclaim sexual integrity. It can also guide you through the temptations and pressures of young adulthood while demonstrating how you can live your life to the fullestwithout regrets.
Includes a comprehensive workbook for individual or group study.

"Im so grateful that Shannon decided to be as honest and real as she isthats the only way this book could be as powerful as it is.… God is going to heal in unbelievable ways through this potent work of art and heart!… I can honestly say that this book has changed mebecause it gives a clear picture of who Jesus is, who we are as His bride, and why we cant seem to be satisfied with anything or anyone else."
Bethany Dillon, songwriter and recording artist
"Like a steady IV drip, todays teenage girls get a message of confused and cheapened sexuality. They are desperate for reasons to guard and preserve themselves. Shannon Ethridge gives girls reasons in this relevant and readable book. Every young woman and every young womans mother needs to read this book!"
Sharon Hersh, author of "Mom, I Feel Fat!" and "Mom, I Hate My Life!"
"A must-read for every teenage girl! Honest and informative, this book is not only highly readable with its true-to-life illustrations, but its packed with answers for every sexual situation todays teens encounter. What a great antidote for the twisted sexual messages our pop-culture continues to dish out. Way to go, Shannon!"
Melody Carlson, author of Diary of a Teenage Girl series and Torch Red, Color Me Torn
"Shannon writes with a direct, forthright style, yet she remains tactful and kind as she presents her balanced, godly teaching on dating and relationships. Without question, this is a must-read for any young woman who longs to remain pure in her relationship with God, and I suspect this book will very quickly become a staple of small-group studies."
Fred Stoeker, coauthor of Every Young Mans Battle
"This book should be required reading for any teenage girl who has been exposed to the negative influences of the culture through media, music, movies, and fashion magazines. As someone who is in the trenches of ministry to teen girls, I appreciate Shannon s candid approach and her willingness to tackle some difficult topics facing our young women. She does a beautiful job of exposing the godless issues of the culture, while at the same time, offering godly solutions."
Vicki Courtney, founder of Virtuous Reality Ministries and author of Your Girl: Raising A Godly Daughter in an Ungodly World
"This book is awesome! I will be buying it and reading it with teens that I mentor. I wish it had been available to me when I was a teen."
Adrienne Freas, homemaker and Campus Crusade for Christ staff member
RepsUKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5BrilliantJune 11, 2012RepsUKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was really worried about my two girls entering the world of sexual availability. It seems that today free sex is everywhere and that does not feel good at all. I saw this book and thought I would give it a go. I am so glad that I did. Written in an easy format that is difficult to put down once started. I could not believe how direct, appropriate and honest this book is. It gets to the bones of what is causing us problems in today's society. One of the best purchases I have done and feel that a lot of pressure and worry and been eliminated from me. I can now help the girls to be, and maintain being, authentic.
kristinasingaporeAge: 18-24Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5worth a read!April 13, 2012kristinasingaporeAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Previously, i was wondering whether i should get this, like you, i was deliberating, is this book worth it?
This book deals with issues such as relationships (boyfriend), sexual issues that deal with temptations and God, issues of what we wear, media, issues that we face on a daily basis. I'm in my mid 20s and i find this book very thought provoking and useful in being a woman who walks to walk with God and being equipped with the necessary knowledge against these issues.
I feel that this book is worth buying. I will certainly preserve it if it lasts or buy a new copy if im blessed with a daughter in the future.
GCCanadaAge: 18-24Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely Amazing!! 5 stars and no less!March 3, 2012GCCanadaAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While reading this book, I began reflecting on how amazing it was that one simply book can have a spectacular, live-changing impact, in a reader's life.
I pray that in one way or another God will draw more readers to this book, because trust me on this one, if you are young girl or if you are trying to reach out to one -- whether this person has lost this battle OR not (believe me, you are never too Christian to get good advice), you'll want to read this book. When you're able to get a Christ-based, realistic, funny and smart book, you don't want to miss out because it will REALLY get you thinking about your life, your priorities and how beautiful God is (I learned amazing things from the Word of God, that left me speechless and praising God.) I'm even getting ready to reserve a copy of every Young Man's battle for my brother. Honestly, God bless these authors and may The Lord continue to use them to reach out to the fallen and to encourage the righteous.

debbiemaAge: 18-24Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5This product was a laughable waste of time.May 22, 2011debbiemaAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 5I was given this book as a confirmation present and I looked upon it skeptically. As I read it my expectations were met by the impossibly rediculous ideas presented in this book. First, the idea of not kissing before marriage is so far fetched that I would challenge anyone to find a person that would hold such a belief. Secondly, the side hugging rule is not even followed in my church by my priests with whom I am quite close as well as my youth minister and countless others... a hug is a hug. Thirdly, I have many gay friends who have been through such hard times with coming to terms with there sexuality so to say that councelling can "cure" them is naive and ignorant, if one could choose their sexuality then I don't know anyone who would want to go through the things that these friends have. Fourth, the fact that u don't notice an attractive man as u age can be dispelled by my mother, a devout catholic who pointed out my now long term boyfriend as "cute" to me. I have many more issues with this book but the final one that I will state is the section on teen soap operas... I have watched every one of the ones stated and am neither pregnant or addicted to drug or dressing like a skank. If someone is that easily influenced or manipulated by television then they should not be watching anything because they are probably too much of an invalid to function in society. In conclusion although parts of the book made valid points the general over the top approach taken by the authors leaves girls with no other options than becoming a nun or marrying jesus.
