Creative2xmomCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great for Preteen GirlsJanuary 3, 2019Creative2xmomCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Dannah Gresh, author of Secret Keeper Girl and Lies Young Women Believe, takes her message to girls ages 9 to 12, addressing the lies that start young. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. And what's his primary weapon? Lies... using our mindsets... beliefs. In today's society, these lies come younger and younger. And while we can't keep our girls from the world, we can prepare them for it.
Fun, engaging, and easy to read, Lies Girls Believe follows Zoey, a typical preteen girl trying to make good decisions in her every day life. Along the way, the reader is asked to weigh in on Zoey's choices on a range of topics, each connected to 20 truths important for today's girls. Girls will see the consequences of Zoey's actions, as well as have a chance to reflect on how they would react in a similar situation. Filled with questions, graphics, games, highlighted quotes, etc, Lies Girls Believe is an enjoyable read and well-written to the preteen audience. This book would be well-read with A Mom's Guide to Lies Girls Believe. Stay tuned for that review coming soon.

Book Reviewer Maman4 Stars Out Of 5Great Tween Devotional/StudySeptember 1, 2018Book Reviewer MamanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This study book geared for tweens was inspired by the Nancy DeMoss book, Lies Women Believe.
I appreciate the opening pages of the book as the author writes to the tween who is reading the book. She introduces herself and tells the reader about being "super freaked out about the problems tween girls face." The text is conversational and terminology is simplified. Examples are easily relatable to modern times like apps, etc.. The pages are colourful, full of various fonts and cute drawings (age-appropriate of course!). Scripture is included for the reader to highlight, underline and refer back to as the chapters progress. Space for journaling and answering questions is provided.
Sometimes the point can be oversimplified but I think the target audience would be able to understand the gist of the meaning with the terms the author has used. The book lays a foundation for parents to dig deeper into Scripture with their daughters to discuss the lies/truth (in fact, I think there's a guide book available for Moms).
Throughout the book, a character by the name of Zoey is used. Zoey makes various decisions , revealing the lies we believe and God's truth. She makes good and bad decisions, opening up an opportunity for the reader to think through her own life, and to discuss those things with Mom (or Dad).
The author does a great job meshing "Notes from Nancy" with the Bible lesson she is teaching. Nancy weighs in with her own thoughts in a sidebar, sometimes parallel thoughts with the "grown-up version".
The opening chapters cover the issue of sin, what it is, and that it has consequences. In the story of Zoey, wonderful parallels are made with the account of Eve. Following that, chapters cover TRUTH, Lies about God, Lies about Myself, Lies about Family, Lies about Sin, Lies about Being a Girl, Lies about Boys, Lies about Friendship, Lies about the Future, and the Truth that Sets You Free.
This is a great book for girls ages 9 through 12 to get started in learning how to apply biblical principles to practical living, and how to search God's worth for the Truth.
I received an ecopy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.
