I’d previously reviewed the guide for this book, but wanted to check out the book itself and share it with my daughter to get her opinion on it. I think this is an excellent read to share with my daughter and read together. This would even make a good discussion book for a group of girls.
The lie: I don’t have any friends.
I’d certainly felt this way in elementary through High School. I was never popular, so I didn’t have a ton of friends. Rather, I had a select handful that were very close. No superficial friendships. But when there were problems, maybe mini fights, or perhaps they’d gone on vacation, I’d feel lonely. I’d listen to the lie, believe I had no one, and would feel sorry for myself. If only I had a book like this to go to for encouragement. The author offers good advice and truths throughout.
“We all need faithful friends, and the best way to find one is to become one.”
Dannah shares the story of Zoey, a fictional character with real life problems. Through her example, we can see the struggles that we often face growing up. How to we cope or manage? What is the best way to respond in a situation? Author Dannah Gresh uses the Word of God as a guide to the truths we should listen to while ignoring the lies. Each chapter starts with Zoey’s problem, a lie she’s started to believe, the truth given to us in the Bible and finally a workbook like section for the reader to explore, take notes and discover how they’ve been listening to those same lies. I received a complimentary copy from Moody. The honest opinions in this review are my own. I’m glad I grabbed a copy of this book. With the mom’s guide as a compliment, this will make for some great discussions and allow my daughter to ask questions that might have been in the back of her mind.
