No one knows about having all the feels quite like teenage girlsbut few girls know what to do with all those feelings. They can flit from giddy to anxious to insecure to in loveoops, wait, just kidding, out of loveto chill to stressed to ecstatic to despairing to rebellious to penitent to cynical to naïve to independent to clingy to selfish to selfless, all with a heaping side order of angst and adorkability, all in a span of hours . . . sometimes minutes. In other words: all the feels all the time.
Christian teens need Bible-based help to show them that its okay to feel deeply (after all, God himself is the Author of all feelings), but each of us must learn to train our emotions in the ways of Christ. As they learn how to deal with all the feels, girls need scriptural foundations, practical strategies, and the assurance that they are not weirdand never alone.

Part workbook, part self-help guide, part Bible study, this handbook is geared toward those who experience big feelings and could use some support navigating the challenges that come with this territory. The author explains how the Bible can be a helpful guide to understanding and taking charge of ones emotions: God and Jesus are framed as compassionate and encompassing big love themselves, an approach illuminated by carefully selected Scripture, such as poignant passages from the Bible. Each chapter tackles a different topic that can affect a sensitive teen, from relationships with family members to making friends and dating. Sections close with prompts for journaling, prayer suggestions, and additional Bible verses to explore on these things. Several quizzes help readers discover what type of feeler they are (big, steady, or reluctant) and how drama prone they may be, among other topics. While the book is labeled as being geared toward teens in general, gendered language and exclusively heterosexual relationship examples implicitly target a straight female audience. Concrete examples of turbulent emotional experiences given in the book are fairly light, and the author encourages readers to seek additional help if they are experiencing depression, abuse, or otherwise need more support.
Overwhelmed teens can find validation in this faith-based guide. (discussion guide) (Nonfiction. 12-18)
