by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and 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.
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.
I've read many of your books and recently I started reading your book "Lies Young Women Believe". I brought it with me on a school trip to read and one of my non-Christian friends picked it up and started reading it. She loved it so much that she read it in 3 days! She signed the "Thirty Day Challenge" and will now be reading the Bible! Praise the Lord! Praying for her salvation! Just wanted to let you know that your book has been a great tool used by the Lord! :) -- Brittney
