Publisher's Description

You know her--the good girl. She's the reliable one who shows up every week at youth group wearing a purity ring and a smile. She gets good grades, makes the team, and doesn't need to be told to come home on time. But deep down she is crushed by the weight of the responsibility to be the good one, the smart one, the one who never messes up.

With the same candor and gentle spirit she showed women in Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman now gives young women what they need to be free on the inside, no matter what's going on outside. Through an honest look at the roles girls play, she helps them learn to stop trying and start trusting that the Jesus who came to save them also comes to live with them, right here and now.

    Oh how I wish this book had been around years ago! This is an excellent book for any teen girl to read. I would say any parent or teen leader should read it too. It is written in a loving and easy to understand language. Learning to love who you are just like the Lord loves you is a valuable lesson that all teenagers need to learn.

    I gave this book 5/5 stars. If you know a teenage girl please buy her this book, especially if you don't think she needs it! You never know what is going on in the life of your teenager and this book may have just the advice she needs for whatever is on her mind right now. I highly recommend this book!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I bought this as a gift for my daughter , and she devoured it! She was so excited to read it, and has already planned to share it with a friend. She is talking about trying to get a few girls together for a discussion group around the book. Thank you to the author, Emily P. Freeman, for her faithfulness and perserverence in sharing her art!

    This review was written for Graceful: Letting Go of Your Try-Hard Life.
    It's clear that the author grew up working hard to be the good girl, and probably succeeded. I read this book thinking of its potential for my own teen girls, and as a small group study resource. But as a grown-up, former good girl, I connected with a lot of what I read and found myself in the pages.

    The premise is that all of us hide behind something--rules, good grades, causes, image, responsibility--and this hiding keeps us from ever truly being known. Ms. Freeman sums this up well in the first chapter:

    "We have grown so comfortable in our girl-made hiding places that we forget the most important part of hide-and-seek: the best part of hiding is being found. If no one is looking for you, what's the point of hiding? Don't we all really want to be known, to be loved, to be accepted, to be searched for, to be found?"

    Each chapter elaborates on a different way we hide, full of examples from lives of teens the author has worked with, as well as from her own life. At the end of each chapter we find truths from God's Word about who He is and who He expects us to be, with practical applications of these truths.

    It would seem that the girls falling into these traps would be those with a good reputation, those you'd never consider rebellious. But the book also speaks to girls who have done "bad things" and wouldn't necessarily call themselves good girls, since all WANT to be loved and accepted.

    This book is one that would definitely minister to young ladies who find themselves working so hard to live up to the expectations of others that they don't even know what God expects of them. Keep an eye on the author's website for soon-to-come resources for study groups.
