In this gutsy and intimate book, Rachel Gardner tackles head-on the issues facing teenage girls: self-image, the pull of the in-crowd, puberty, boys, sex, regrets and godly ambition. Credible yet shot through with biblical wisdom, parents and youthworkers can give this book with confidence.
To her readers, she writes:
I realize that you don’t know me so it might feel a bit weird me saying that.
But it’s true. I have written this book because I want to let you in on a bit of a secret; you are precious and your life is a gift to you.
It’s a secret because few of us know it and fewer actually believe it.
I hope you will feel inspired to explore your abilities and dreams be encouraged to protect your heart and still keep it open to God and others appreciate your life and the mysteries in the world around you
May these words of wisdom help you know that you are lovely, lovable, unique, full of potential and, above all, cherished.
