You have been lied to Have you been deceived? Through a nationwide survey and in-depth discussion groups, Nancy and Dannah have listened carefully to the heart of your generation. And here are some things they've heard:
"I know God should be the only thing that satisfies, but if it could be Him "and" my friends, then I could be happy."
"It seems like I have been struggling with depression forever. I always feel like I am not good enough."
"I tell myself that I don't really listen to the song lyrics, but once I hear a song a few times and start thinking about what they're saying I realize that it's too late. It's already stuck in my head."
"For me, the whole wife and mom thing is overrated. It isn't cool to want a husband and a family."
Maybe you can identify. Trying to listen to the right voices can be difficult. This book has been written by friends who will help you find the Truth. Maybe your heart is telling you that some things in your life are way off course. Certain habits and relationships have left you confused and lonely. This is not the way it's supposed to be.
In this book, Nancy and Dannah expose 25 of the lies most commonly believed by your generation. They share real-life accounts from some of the young women they interviewed, along with honest stories about how they've overcome lies they believed themselves. They get down in the trenches of the battle with you. Best of all, they'll show you how to be set free by the Truth.
Lies Young Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free
by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and by Dannah Gresh
It is a sad statistic that only 9 percent of born-again teens believe in moral absolutes (Barna, February 2002). The covers of today's teen magazines would make yesteryear's sailor blush. And yet these are the images and messages that teens are flooded with in print and electronic media. Lies Young Women Believe will give girls aged 13-19 the tools they need to identify where their lives and beliefs are off course - the result of buying into Satan's lies about God, guys, media, and more.
Based on surveys of over 1000 young women, million-selling author Nancy Leigh DeMoss teams up with established youth author Dannah Gresh to speak to teenage girls about the top lies they believe. It isn't enough to identify these lies, however. The authors are well-equipped to lead young women in the skills and the truths of Scripture that overcome those lies.

|Excellent book for teen girls Feb 26, 2010|
|I haven't read the entire book yet, but I've read quite a bit, and this is a great book for teen girls. Actually, the principles of this book are very applicable to anyone, but the specific lies that the devil tempts us on is more geared to teen girls. I am using it for a youth group girls' Bible study, and so far the girls really like it and it seems to be helping them grow in their faith.|
|Worth reading Dec 10, 2009|
|This book addresses issues young girls are dealing with today. It is written to a specific demographic group, and I think it hit the target. In my opinion, it is worth the read. The book addresses several issues young girls deal with today, and it does it with the use of Scripture. The book starts out with lies, refutes them with Scripture verses, and ends with truth from the Bible to replace the lies of the world. |
A word of caution: As addressed in a few other reviews of this book, it does cover subjects of a sensitive nature. I would not be comfortable handing this book to a young girl and telling her to read it. I would recommend reading it with a young person and doing so with the permission of a parent or reading it as a parent with my child. If I were reading it with a young person who attends public school (and is exposed to this subject matter on a daily basis), I think 14 might be an appropriate age. If I were reading it with a young person who is home schooled or attends Christian school, I think 16 might be a more appropriate age.
If you are looking for a book that will allow you to discuss, from a Biblical standpoint, some tough cultural issues with the young women in your lives, then this is your book.
