While it had some good points, this book was very offensive to me I have never read abiased, homophobic, antifeminist book I can understand why some Christians are so ignorant, but really, this is just another reason why I hate to call myself a Christian even though I follow Christ I don t like the way Christians act For example, trying to convince me that homosexuality is a sin and then saying, Sin removes joy Sin brings physical damageSin produces fear Oh, really I ve ne While it had some good points, this book was very offensive to me I have never read abiased, homophobic, antifeminist book I can understand why some Christians are so ignorant, but really, this is just another reason why I hate to call myself a Christian even though I follow Christ I don t like the way Christians act For example, trying to convince me that homosexuality is a sin and then saying, Sin removes joy Sin brings physical damageSin produces fear Oh, really I ve never seen homosexuality do any of that in fact, I d say in most cases it does the opposite of all of those To quote 1 John 4 8, God is love So why in the world are these authors so against love Doesn t sound Christian to me Then there s the whole antifeminist chapter Literally an entire chapter saying how, even though society is trying to make people believe that men and women should be equal that s wrong It tried to argue that, simply because Adam was made first, he was superior to Eve I actually believe that, well, SOMEONE had to be made first If it had been Eve, meninism would be a real thing, and feminism the joke After venting about this to my friend, they told me that they believed Adam to have been a woman originally, and that Eve, being made from Adam, is technically a clone of Adam and therefore could hardly be a different sex I added that, before sin, there was no need for reproduction, because there was no death, so it s totally plausible The rest could have been part of the curse Not to mention, Adam is the Hebrew word for human, genderlessly, so really, Adam may not be a name as much as it is a title, per se The worst part, though, is that these authors just think they re SO RIGHT about it on the flimsiest evidence Bible verses that could be interpreted a hundred different ways and a little story that, for all we know, could have been fictional aren t convincing to me about something I believe with all my heart And that is that God loves us all equally and sees the soul before he sees the gender he made us, and wants us to love each other like that, too I believe God is a feminist Not that he values people who are only wives and mothers and have no job God calls us all different ways, so who s to say women shouldn t want a job Too manly I think that this aspect of the book isinfluenced by the scum of the earth than I am by disagreeing and believing differently When I started typing this, I literally told myself I wouldn t go off and argue the whole book, because it was really only about 30% of the book I found offensive Whoops Maybe I just really want the authors to stop sounding so cocky about everything the voice used in some of these chapters made me feel like you thought you were getting your words directly from Jesus, but I strongly disagree Really, the only reason this book hasthan one star is because it did have some good points about other things, like how wasted time could be used better or that having a good life isn t necessarily the best life to lead Good try, guys But please, do some research next time you write a book God bless you both 3 I had to pray about writing this review because the book had made me say yes one minute and be angry about the closed mindedness the other.What do I agree with 1 Definitely do not think that you cannot live without your friends, current set or any other set 2 Definitely do not think that you are nothing without your boyfriend 3 Definitely do not thing that you have to do what he asks for sexually if you want to wait for marriage before taking that step.4 Definitely do not let peer pressure I had to pray about writing this review because the book had made me say yes one minute and be angry about

without your boyfriend 3 Definitely do not thing that you have to do what he asks for sexually if you want to wait for marriage before taking that step.4 Definitely do not let peer pressure push you into anything that you find incompatible with your faith.What I do NOT Agree with 1 That practicing the exercises of yoga is a satanic or other faith practice It s just exercise and you can connect with God this way just as well as through other ways.2 That meditation practices are not good for Christians If we meditate on bible verses what can be wrong about that AND the absolute worst one from this book That women have but one primary purpose to be a good wife and mother That motherhood is their fulfillment What a lot of baloney I did not chose motherhood because I am not good mother material I am glad God let me live in a time where contraception is possible and I did not have to have babies It would have been a sad life for them, indeed I am not a career woman who spends 60 hours a week working But I do object to someone telling me that my only true calling was to get married and have kids I don t even like kids, not yours and I am sure mine neither The mere thought of having kids is awful to me And don t someone write to me and tell me about the ticking clock I have been on contraception for 38 years and am just about done with that kind of fruitful part of my life and I never once heard one single tick nor one single tock EVER If God had made me to embrace motherhood He would have 1 given me a better mother, 2 given me the desire for kids, and 3 supplied the skills He did none of that So, regardless of what verse you want to toss my way, motherhood was NOT my calling And there are plenty of other women who are in the same position I chose not to have kids, I didn t want kids, I don t have kids, I don t like kids, I never wanted kids, from the very earliest thoughts I did not want kids Ever What a frustrating read Putting aside my personal thoughts on religion, the authors promote behavior that I think is illogical and alienating Consider yourself gender fluid, trans, gay, lesbian, or bi Want to explore sexual experiences while you re young Believe that women can have a say in decisions during a marriage and don t have to be mothers to live fulfilling lives Enjoy doing yoga Like movies, music, or literature that has any scene with sex, violence, or illicit behavior Curious a What a frustrating read Putting aside my personal thoughts on religion, the authors promote behavior that I think is illogical and alienating Consider yourself

you are one of many being tricked in our fallen world of human emotions Never mind that many modern laws, inventions, movements, and so on that we may take for granted were created precisely because people are driven by emotional experiences Yikes.And there s no consideration whatsoever for anyone who may be seriously ill or suffering any sort of physical disability Depression, obsessions, and suicidal thoughts get mild mentions, but that s about it for tackling mental health issues The idea that anyone outside of the Midwest U.S community doesn t even register a footnote for a book that claims to be understanding for younger women is also terrifying.At times, the authors give advice I can agree with your happiness shouldn t be judged entirely by your accomplishments , treasure inner beauty first within yourself and others , reach out to others less fortunate than you before it crash lands by promoting extrinsic dependency or by contradicting themselves within the same page or paragraph sometimes Because God is stated to be an entity outside of you, and the only one worthy of your absolute love, obedience, and loyalty It s probably not intentional, but carrying that kind of mindset dilutes any encouragement to learn from personal experiences to me And implies that punishment and conditioning works for all, which may actually drive people further apart than the authors intended.I appreciate that the authors are reporting success stories for women turning their lives around with their support Bravo But this book is not one that I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone outside of educational or critical thinking debates I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways This book definitely deservesthan five stars I went into this book knowing that the author was going to make a list of lies every girl and woman most likely believe d at some point in their life And I already knew that there were lies I have believed, I just didn t know which

Boys may even want to read it I think that some of these lies, even boys may tend to believe to.But, in my opinion, the first step you need to take, before you read the book, is Admit to yourself that there are lies that you believe, even though you may not know what they are Yet ExtremeNot completely without merit otherwise I d be writing that it should get zero stars however, the majority of viewpoints in this book are far too extreme to be practical and every time I think I read a nice lovely sentiment that actually resonates with me, it is followed by extremist absurdity that just doesn t align with my faith.

This book s excellent title appears to introduce a very helpful topic that there are many lies told to young women today which they would do well to question What is not so apparent from the title is that the lies dealt with here are not those generally formed in society, but those which could plague young Christians specifically about the practice of their faith and how it impacts their personal lives The solutions it offers therefore are possibly not quite as attractive to a general audienc This book s excellent title appears to introduce a very helpful topic that there are many lies told to young women today which they would do well to question What is not so apparent from the title is that the lies dealt with here are not those generally formed in society, but those which could plague young Christians specifically about the practice of their faith and how it impacts their personal lives The solutions it offers therefore are possibly not quite as attractive to a general audience as to a young Christian audience.The initial test it proposes to readers to discern whether or not they are in the grip of the lies which will be explored contains some suggestions which could be generally helpful, and others which aredirectly Christian It asks whether you are Happy to be single or Gotta have a guy Happy with what you ve got or Ugly Content with what you ve got or Must shop now The real deal or Different depending on whom I m with etc Thespecifically Christian considerations include Forgiven or Guilty Walking in victory or Unable to overcome certain sins and Confident of God s protection or Afraid of Satan The substantial Bible Christian theology throughout offers a particular interpretation of Scripture and Church teaching that may not concord with those of other denominations.As often found in spiritual personal development books aimed at young adults, many of the examples given are quite drastic, including a romantic relationship between a father and daughter which also involves drug use, models starving themselves, children who were abused, Satanic worship in Africa etc Many others are about experiences in Christian youth groups, both spiritual and general in friendships and romantic relationships.The first section of lies dealt with in the book is directly about God, and the second is about Satan, following the strongly Christian tone of the book Then it explores lies about myself, including my worth, my appearance and my performance Then lies about guys I need a boyfriend, it s ok to go out with a non Christian, things that are not really sex , and the loneliness of staying pure Then lies about relationships, lies about faith including My youth pastor is my connection with God , lies about sin, lies about media and wasting time, and finally lies about the lack of fulfilment of living the role of a wife and mother without external employment www.GoodReadingGuide.com My god mother gave me this book as a graduation present from High School Heading onto college is going to be a transition, yes, but with God I feelequipped than ever I didn t really know what this book was going to be about, but as soon as I started reading it, I honestly couldn t put it down It s supposed to be a kind of daily weekly bible study, but I read through it in four days I thought the authors did a very good job creating a well organized and scripture based study I didn t eve My god mother gave me this book as a graduation present from High School Heading onto college is going to be a transition, yes, but with God I feelequipped than ever I didn t really know what this book was going to be about, but as soon as I started reading it, I honestly couldn t put it down It s supposed to be a kind of daily weekly bible study, but I read through it in four days I thought the authors did a very good job creating a well organized and scripture based study I didn t even mind the side bars The sections were all informative with supporting passages from the bible and each part used real concerns from real girls Although I have never really believed in some of the lies presented ie God is just like my father I did find that some of the relating topics addressed under these headers were lies and doubts I have fallen into What I really liked was how based in scripture it was As I said, there were supporting passages for each affirmation and the authors provided tons of stories and concerns to back up the right here right now feeling we all have about confronting these lies Everything always tied back to Jesus and our redemption in Him Even though I m not in high school any, so many of these lies that we experience are concerns even as we grow older we might not outright say The benefits of constant media use outweigh the harm, but I m sure all of us have experienced saying, I can just watch a littleit ll be ok So, yes, I really liked this devotional bible study and I think it will definitely come into good use as I head off into my future
