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 themselves believed . 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 by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh was originally released a number of years ago. They just recently re-released it with tons more content and even more truth packed inside. And I would go so far to say that this book isn't just for "young" women.
I'm in my early twenties, so not the teenaged girl that this book is aimed for. And I still got so much out of this book...the issues discussed in this book are truly relevant and the conversation is much needed in today's society, and even church. There are so many different topics discussed in this book from career and dating to sexuality and God. Yes, there are many lies even about God that we can get trapped into believing!
I would highly recommend every young women, and just women in general, to read this book. Let this simply be a path guiding you to the ultimate freedom found in Jesus Christ.
