I'm reading this book at the moment and loving the lessons that Bianca draws from the story of Ruth about how to live life well. It is an open, honest look at life lessons she has learned and wants to pass on to other young women. She covers dating and relationships, faith and spirituality and adulting and growing up. I highly recommend it for older teens.
Priscilla Shirer wrote this book in response to the movie, Overcomer, which she acted in. Priscilla has been in full-time ministry to women for 20 years. The title, Radiant, was inspired by Psalm 34:5 which says, Those who look to him are... radiant.
It is specifically written for teen girls and young women to help them find their identity in Christ. There are some inspiring stories from her own life including how her hair style encouraged a community. I wish I had read it when I was a teenager.
I'm reading Rachel's book, Girl, Wash Your Face at the moment and I'm loving it.
I'm a fan of John Dickson's work and this book is no exception. He wrote it for teens and it is very easy to read - I read a chapter each morning in my quiet time. I think the blurb says it best: "This is a book about God, you, the Bible, prayer, church, relationships, sex, feelings, doubts, love and, above all, hanging in there as a Christian."
It is a must read for all teens. I think it would be especially helpful for new Christians and even those who aren't Christians yet but have questions. John shares stories from his own experience - it's very relatable for both guys and girls.
Fear is such a big thing for many people. I haven't read Afraid of all things yet, but her book, He numbered the pores on my face, is my favourite Christian book ever!
I loved, loved, loved this book! Reading it felt like sitting down with Scarlet over a milkshake and sharing funny stories and life lessons. I laughed out loud. I cried. I totally related to teenage Scarlett and her struggles. I wish I had read this book when I was a teenager.
