i bought this book to take on a mission trip to Africa with me but after reading it i may need to tear out a few pages that are more authors opinion than Biblical. For example, the authors make it clear that God's main design for women are to be a wife and mother highly suggesting that if you don't do that you are not following God when Paul in the Bible specifically urged believers to focus on doing God's Will and only getting married if that helps you follow God better. It also says that a woman's job is to complete a man. Wait, what? i thought it was Gods job to complete each of us since He designed a hole in our heart that only He can fill. And it warns us that "increasingly, young married women are choosing not to have children or to delay motherhood until they've had a chance to do everything else they want to do in life" as if that is a bad thing. Since when is being responsible and not just following the "marriage and having babies trend" a bad thing? My advice, just do what God calls you to do, whether married or single, moms or not, our purpose is to serve God not man. don't let this book pressurize you into believing anything else.
Excellent book! Addresses all kinds of topics pre-teen/teens are struggling w/ today; cutting, image, food addictions/bulimia, etc. These are hard topics to talk about but choose to discuss them and help the hurting.
This book and companion guide are excellent for high school girls! I teach a Sunday morning life group of 11th grade girls. We decided to meet outside of class to study God's Word. Lies Young Women believe meets them right where they are in temptations they are facing and choices they are making. the girls & I love it!
