Harvest House Publishers Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices, A - eBook

Today's girls are bombarded by conflicting messages about the meaning of womanhood. The media says one thing, boys say another, and friends go for whatever is "coolest." Who's right? With wisdom and gentleness, Elizabeth George addresses challenging topics - including attitude, friendships, crushes, parents, and school - to help girls ages 8 to 12 let God, not the world, define who they are.

Author Elizabeth George has a special talent for breaking down into small bites ways to live a better Christian life. In this particular book she gives some very easy to follow advice for girls in the early stages of being a teenager. This is a perfect book for a Mom to read along with her daughter or for a Sunday School class to go through together. The author addresses different issues that are important and also offers simple advice that is age appropriate. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I think this book is a must read! I would recommend this book to anyone with a young daughter and especially as a gift to a young girl who is looking for help in her walk with the Lord.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

My grown daughter asked for this for her 11 year old and they have read and discussed it togheter. I would suggest that it be done that way, if possible. They were able to work through lots of issues that might come up and how to handle them. Wish there had been a guide like this when my girls were tweens.

I have been looking for great books in this genre since my girls are coming in to the 8-12 age range. I was very pleased with the content, topics, writing style and applicability of this book.
The author did a great job of addressing each topic without saying too much.
The book encourages girls to learn more, to talk about things with someone they trust and to let God speak to the many different things they are facing in this season of life.
This is a book that I know my daughter enjoyed!

Book Review: A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices by Elizabeth George
I've been a fan of Elizabeth George's Bible studies for a long time now, and when I saw her new book, "A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices," I knew it was a must-read. And now that I've read it, I'm buying my tween daughter a copy and studying through the book with her.
George's goal is to help girls after God's own heart learn how to make good, God-honoring choices. Straight away, George makes a connection between choices and the heart, using Proverbs 4:23 and Luke 6:45. She shows tweens how the heart affects attitudes how attitudes then lead to actions.
"A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices" is not just a good read. It's an interactive study in which girls are encouraged to answer questions, journal, write out action plans, and pray through the book as they learn keys to making good choices. And the book is full of Bible verses to help tweens see these aren't just an adult's idea of what good choices are--these are God's ideas.
The book includes some great features. In each chapter, George uses acronyms to help girls remember main points. Here's an example from the chapter on choosing what to say and what not to say. The letters in MOUTH stand for:
M- Make your words pleasing to God.
O- Out of your heart your mouth speaks.
U- Utter only what God says to say.
T- Truth is always the right thing to say.
H- Hurting someone with your words is wrong.
At the end of each chapter, tweens are encouraged to rewrite the statement for each letter of the acronym. Then George helps them pray through what they've learned from God's Word and plan how to obey.
In "A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices," George covers all of the most important issues tweens face: choosing to get up each day, prioritizing God's Word and prayer, choosing friends, choosing what you say and don't say, choosing to have patience, choosing joy, choosing to be faithful, and choosing to trust God.
I highly recommend this book for tween girls and for moms, too! Even though it's written for a tween audience, there's so much biblical truth it's still applicable. And it's even better to study through it together as you disciple your girl on her journey to become a girl after God's own heart.
