Publishers Description Body. Beauty. Boys. Many teen girls pick up the message early that these three things will totally determine their future happiness. They become devoted to these three things to the exclusion of all else. Their friends and family may not recognize it, but their every waking moment is consumed with thoughts of their body and appearance, which leads them to drastic, destructive measures in their lives. This book offers encouragement, advice and guided journaling for girls in those critical years of battling their body image.
Community Description Millions of girls obsess about their bodies. Sarah Bragg has been there. Though few knew about her 10-year eating disorder, her college friends would have been shocked to learn that she was lonely, sick, and terrified.
Body. Beauty. Boys gets right to the heart of the matter. Sarah introduces you to Someone who offers you a new identity and unconditional love. God made you unique and extraordinary. Truth is - He's crazy about you!
Body. Beauty. Boys. by Sarah Bragg addresses inner struggles that are common to most girls while growing up. As young women, we can easily think that all of our problems come from boys, but the way in which we view ourselves also has a great effect on our emotional and psychological development. Bragg tries to show girls how to be positive about their image and how to deal with those pesky members of the opposite sex.
The world has a different view on image from the way God sees things, and Bragg tries to help girls see themselves in the same way that their savior sees them: beautiful. Each chapter ends with a section of notes for the reader to use for reflecting on the subject matter. Bragg shares her battles with eating disorders in hopes that readers can either learn from her mistakes, or know that other people have struggled as they may be struggling now.
This book has the possibility to change lives. Many times, we have a desire to change but just need some encouragement to start the process; this book contains the support that many girls are looking for. Any young women from college age down to middle school will be able to relate to the life story and take encouragement from the information that Bragg has to offer. This is an autobiography, a training manual, and a prayer journal. The author has experienced much of what she shares here, and her intensive research adds even greater depth. Read it, and feel beautiful. -- Alyssa Curry, Christian Book Previews.com

Reviews - What do customers think about Body Beauty Boys?
"body, beauty, boys" gets an A+ May 3, 2008
Great book/bible study for women...while it is written for young adults, I think it is useful for all ages. It uses a lot of scripture and author's personal experiences. Highly recommended!

It has become very easy in today's world for females to gain a negative body image. Whether this comes from the media, their peers, or general assumptions they make on their own, it's typical to hear a female, regardless of age, state that they don't like their body. For teenagers, this problem is especially true. For Christian teens trying to live up to the expectations of Christ, it may seem to be a problem that's insurmountable. It's time that we combat that, and books like BODY, BEAUTY, BOYS help to teach us the right way to view ourselves.
This book contains eight main chapters for consideration: How Does a Girl Survive in a Barbie World?; Blurred Vision; Lies I Believed and the Truth That Set Me Free; A Portrait of Freedom; How to Worship God with Your Body; Accountability: Having a Friend and Being a Friend; God Wants to Use Your Past; and What Is Your Focus? Author Sarah Bragg uses practical wisdom, biblical passages, bible study questions, and a place to write down your answers to pointed questions to help you improve your body image.
Although BODY, BEAUTY, BOYS is definitely geared towards Christian teens, it's a book that all female teenagers would do well to take a look at. The knowledge it contains is perfect for everyone, and the facts and figures put forth in the book don't apply only to those of faith. This book would make a great gift for any teenager in your life, whether they're suffering from a negative body image or not.
