I recently purchased the combo pack that includes the documentary, the leaders guide, group study DVD, as well as a music CD. I also purchased one student workbook. I'm planning on having my first girls group tonight and had to pare down the lesson (too wordy), and eliminate the 60min documentary. I'm just showing the small group video (5 min.). Overall, I would say the key topics - pressure, relationships, body image, and peer pressure, are all current issues girls face today, but a lot of the book material has to be simplified in order to keep the lesson under 2 hrs. The main negative for me was the use of the MSG (Message) and the NCV (New Century Version) bibles, throughout the text. While the NIV is mentioned sparingly, the two non-conventional bibles were mainly used. They are both christian based bibles, but written by pastors, etc...and are not based in 100% truth. These bibles paraphrase/re-interpret the Holy Bible incorrectly. While I would recommend the overall Yellow Roses study, you'll want to change all the bible references to something accurate like NIV or KJV. My opinion on the 60 min. documentary is it's too long, and not engaging enough to command a young persons attention for that long.

Im a youth minister of what I would call a small to medium size group. This year our high school group shift into a heavy boy driven group leaving me with fewer girls. I realize the need and importance of creating a space safe just for my girls. This bible study is great, it targets girls of all ages and walks in life, I didnt want to do a "true love can wait" type study because I think that relationship today go further than that. Today our girls are expose to not just sex but abusive relationships that are mental and phsycal, as well as the hype that media creates about self image and bullying. This bible study will make your girls talk, make sure that you are ready to lisent and offer a "safe space" to talk.
i set this bible study as a "tea party" and we have cookies, snack and tea and do the bible study...Each week we talk more than the time allowed :) My girls and I have grown closer, and we are talking about the importance that they are made beautiful and not to let the comments , tweets, post or gossip about them became their reality!
As a youth minister I would recommend this to any church no matter your denomination or size of the group...Thank you Yellow roses!
