The Consulting WriterAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A guide to the truths we should listen to while ignoring the liesJuly 9, 2019The Consulting WriterAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'd previously reviewed the guide for this book, but wanted to check out the book itself and share it with my daughter to get her opinion on it. I think this is an excellent read to share with my daughter and read together. This would even make a good discussion book for a group of girls.
The lie: I don't have any friends.
I'd certainly felt this way in elementary through High School. I was never popular, so I didn't have a ton of friends. Rather, I had a select handful that were very close. No superficial friendships. But when there were problems, maybe mini fights, or perhaps they'd gone on vacation, I'd feel lonely. I'd listen to the lie, believe I had no one, and would feel sorry for myself. If only I had a book like this to go to for encouragement. The author offers good advice and truths throughout.
"We all need faithful friends, and the best way to find one is to become one."
Hannah shares the story of Zoey, a fictional character with real life problems. Through her example, we can see the struggles that we often face growing up. How to we cope or manage? What is the best way to respond in a situation? Author Dannah Gresh uses the Word of God as a guide to the truths we should listen to while ignoring the lies. Each chapter starts with Zoey's problem, a lie she's started to believe, the truth given to us in the Bible and finally a workbook like section for the reader to explore, take notes and discover how they've been listening to those same lies. I received a complimentary copy from Moody. The honest opinions in this review are my own. I'm glad I grabbed a copy of this book. With the mom's guide as a compliment, this will make for some great discussions and allow my daughter to ask questions that might have been in the back of her mind.

This book does wonders! I am a huge fan of the Lies We Believe series. Having read Lies Young Women Believe and owning the other two -- Lies Women Believe & Lies Men Believe -- I knew this would be another great one. I loved this just as much as the one for young women.
This book dives into 20 lies little girls may believe. This breaks down each lie and gives the Truth to counteract it. This book is a combination of a journal and a Bible study that's hands-on and interactive. There are tons of tons of quotes, articles and polls.
The illustrations are captivating and the color choices compliment well with one another. Not only is pretty on the outside and the words are beneficial to the child's spirit, but it's also just as pretty on the inside.
I truly believe this is a wonderful book and highly recommend it! It will help little girls begin to build their own relationships with God at a young age. I stand with this book and it all it shares. Plus I am a fan of the use of scripture to support the points.
Lights in a Dark WorldGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5An essential book for your daughtersMay 2, 2019Lights in a Dark WorldGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In today's society, it is so important that we show our girls the truth about themselves. The world will fill their heads with lies, if we as mothers don't equip them with the truth, who will? Their friends won't, the world won't, the world will tell them they're not beautiful unless they look a certain way, weigh a certain number, act a certain way, dress a certain way, but what does God say? I loved this book, and can't wait until my daughter is old enough to go through it. It says it's recommended for girls 8-12, or tweens, my daughter is 7 right now, and I'm thinking I'll wait until she's at least 10 as there are still topics addressed I just don't think she's ready for yet. Every girl is different though, so I would read through it and see if your daughter is ready for those tougher topics. I highly recommend this book!

terry5 Stars Out Of 5great book!!!April 3, 2019terryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased this book along with another for my 11 year old grandaughter who had just accepted Jesus into her life. I am not an expert on the needs of young girls since I am the father of 3 sons. However, when I received this book and reviewed it, this book seemed to me to be a book my grandaughter would read and enjoy and would accrue benefits by so doing. Thus far she is doing just as I hoped.
