Every Girl Should Have This Book Sep 24, 2007
I don't remember there being so much pressure to comform when I was young. Todays girls are bombarded with false ideas urging them to concentrate on shallow concepts like the right clothes, the right hairstyles and make-up, and the right behavior. Most of this unwelcome advice is wrong. Little attention is paid to being an individual, with personal tastes and standards.
Teens today are told sex is okay because everyone is doing it. No one ever mentions the danger of sexually transmitted diseases or the difficulty of raising a child when the mother is still a child, herself. Books, movies, and television sitcoms provide a perverted idea of what it means to be a woman. Celebrities flaunt their lack of morals, on television talk-shows. With all of this pressure, it's no wonder girls make bad decisions that can damage them forever.
Jeffrey Dean's book, This is Me, has some very good advice, backed up by scripture. He also uses letters and quotes from real girls to whom he has talked. He gives honest, forthright answers, and no topic is off limits. Even though he uses scripture, there's no preaching, no judging. just dealing with tough problems in a clear manner that will appeal to all teenage girls. I am giving a copy to each of my young nieces. This is Me is a Christian based guidebook for becoming the woman God wants you to be. Strongly recommended
