Author:

Emily P. Freeman

(You can read more about her here on her website, or follow her on twitter or Facebook.)

What the book is about:

You know her–the good girl. She’s the reliable one who shows up every week at youth group wearing a purity ring and a smile. She gets good grades, makes the team, and doesn’t need to be told to come home on time. But deep down she is crushed by the weight of the responsibility to be the good one, the smart one, the one who never messes up.

With the same candor and gentle spirit she showed women in Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman now gives young women what they need to be free on the inside, no matter what’s going on outside. Through an honest look at the roles girls play, she helps them learn to stop trying and start trusting that the Jesus who came to save them also comes to live with them, right here and now.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

Graceful brings freedom to young women. It’s just true. I’ve seen it first hand- a beautiful book written with the heart of the teen girl in mind. Here’s an absolutely beautiful video that will show you exactly why I love this book. I give it as gifts A LOT to teen and college girls who need a little break from the pressure of being “good.”

    This book was a huge encouragement to the girls I mentor. They felt Emily completely understood where they were and what they needed to hear.

    “Good girls” need this book!

    I hadn’t heard of this one, but Grace for the Good Girl is another book on my wishlist. I have two daughters so I’m definitely going to have to check this one out.
