Overview

Every girl is a beautiful creation, uniquely equipped by God to do His work in the world. But as girls are growing, changing, and making choices about the kinds of lives they will lead, they are bombarded with conflicting messages about what it means to be a woman. The media says one thing, boys say another, and friends seem obsessed with whatever is newest and coolest. As a result, girls too often hand their decisions over to those least qualified to make them.

Into the breach steps Elizabeth George, bestselling author and beloved Bible teacher. With wisdom, gentleness, and tremendous grace, she guides tween girls ages 8 to 12 through the most challenging decisions they face, teaching them to let God—not the world—define who they are. Discussing such topics as attitude, friendships, crushes, parents, school, and avoiding bad situations, Elizabeth helps girls see that the very best choice of all is a choice to live within God’s will.

Perfect for individuals, small groups, and mentoring.

Reviewed by Michelle Robertson for Readers' Favorite A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices is written by Elizabeth George. This is an interactive guidebook, journal, and devotional study for young girls. It offers young girls a chance to read questions, answers questions, read scriptures, and become fully aware that each choice they make is not only a choice of their own, but is a choice with God too. Each chapter begins with a relatable story and character introducing a new concept, followed by scripture, questions, and activities. A young girl can complete this read by herself, or share it with friends and family. Elizabeth George wrote a fantastic book here. I have not read her previous books, but this one was exceptional. The author took everyday choices of a young girl, related them with a character, and explained the decision-making pertaining to those choices while referencing the importance of God through scripture, stories, and examples. Reading this book now, as an adult, makes me wish I had this type of private guidance/reference in my hands as a teenager or tween. The examples given on how to make good choices through God's word are excellent and very intriguing. This book offers Christian parents, grandparents, and guardians a sense of peace and understanding, knowing the word of God is being explained thoroughly to their young relatives and being compared to her everyday activities and choices she makes in life. This is truly a wonderful book and a treasure to cherish forever.
