I have three daughters and so we are always looking for good books that reinforce our values with our daughters. This book came just when our middle daughter (age 16) was having some friend issues and pressure for relationships with boys. You know there is real content when the book gets quoted by your teenager to her friends. Thanks, Danae!
I would definitely highly recommend this book for any teenage girl! If she is a Christian, it will help point her in the right direction for getting wisdom (which comes from GOD!), and if she isn't a Christian, it is also a great book, because it also includes the plan of salvation. This is an awesome book, & I am so thankful I heard about it on Focus On The Family & am using it for gifts for some of my teenage music students, as well as others. Thank you for providing such great products & at an affordable price! GOD Bless!
I purchased the book for my granddaughter and before I gave it to her I had a chance to read about nine sections. I thought it was so good I got two more books to give away. This book could be read straight through, used as a daily devotion,a bible study,or start a book club with your young friends. I will buy a copy for myself and more to give away. Danae Dobson has done a wonderful job and we need to pass it along.
I thought the content of the book was very good. However, I bought it for my twelve-year old granddaughter, and I think the book is too old for her. I plan to wait until she is at least 13 before giving her the book, and I may wait longer than that. Some twelve-year-olds may be at that point, but I don't think most would be.
Danae Dobson's latest inspirational book targeted for teenage girls contains 22 devotional-style chapters packed into 208 pages. Covering topics as diverse as parent/teen conflict, friendships with unbelievers, unwholesome speech, postmodernism, teen crushes, modesty issues, eating disorders and inner versus outer beauty, this small book certainly delves into some weighty topics! Perhaps best known as the grown daughter of Focus on the Family's Dr. James and Shirley Dobson, Danae certainly fits her "big sister" shoes well. Her tone is one of someone who remembers well what it was like to be a teenager and is not afraid to share her own failures in an effort to impart wisdom to the teens of today. I am pleased with the wisdom, direction and encouragement she offers adolescent girls.In each chapter, Danae interviews teenagers, youth ministers, teachers and counselors. Following each short inspirational essay, Danae quotes some of these youth and youth leaders' thoughts on each topic, and then includes devotional thoughts and questions designed to stimulate thinking and discussion. Although not quite a devotional book, this book could ideally be used as a mother-daughter study book to read together and discuss.Now, it could be simply given to a teenaged girl to read, but for my own just-turned 14 year old homeschooled daughter, this book contains much that I will want to discuss with her. She has not known anyone with an eating disorder and is not familiar with some of the movies and television shows one chapter refers to. I could hand it over to her to read, but I would really prefer to discuss some of these topics with her and answer any questions she has and clear up any potential confusion.
