    So Long, Insecurity Teen Edition is a cute, magazine-article-sty

    So Long, Insecurity Teen Edition is a cute, magazine-article-style book for teens who may be going through an insecure time in their lives. I love Beth Moore, and have enjoyed many of her books, and this one isn’t any different.

    With fun activities, colorful photos, and the conversational tone, I feel this book would appeal to both teens, and their parents. It gives me, as a parent, a peek into a teen’s world, which is so much different than when I was that age. In this digital age, so much more comes into play during those growing-up-and-out years. For instance, you can be bullied online without ever meeting them face-to-face!

    I feel the advice in this book is both biblically sound and realistic. The only thing I question (just a bit) is some of the models used in the photographs. The ‘average’ teen doesn’t look perfect. They don’t have flawless skin, trim bodies, and a gorgeous wardrobe.As with any of the other Beth Moore books I’ve read, the principles of this book are well researched, and backed up by Christian principles. A plus for a teens, parent’s, or youth group’s library.

    Besides having one of my favorite book titles ever, this teen ed

    Besides having one of my favorite book titles ever, this teen edition (in a magazine-book format) is great for your pre-teen and teen girl. Beth talks to teen girls in a language that makes sense and tells them to quit comparing themselves to others (focus on seeing yourself how God sees you and learning who He wants you to be) as well as talking about a Godly perspective on media, boys, fashion, social status, your gifts and talents, and much more. Backed up with pictures and thought provoking questions, this book is a great conversational tool that will get your girl to ask questions that go a little deeper than does he like me? am I pretty enough?



    She also includes verses, group discussion questions, Real Girl testimonials, and Q & A with Beth. One of my favorite parts was the section on what defines "a secure girl." The entire book is well written and presented in an eye-catching way. Everything is designed to make you think. It's very healthy and I cannot recommend it enough!!!

    This is a very engaging book for teen girls. It is colorful wit

    This is a very engaging book for teen girls. It is colorful with a lot of pictures of teen girls and their comments and observations about issues common to teen girls. I really liked the way a lot of different types of girls were represented. My favorite part was the way Moore took women from the Bible and shared their story in a status update. It was short, simple, and to the point, but it brought their story to life.

    As a parent, I enjoyed reading through the book because it helped me see some issues through different eyes and also gave me ideas for different ways to share lessons I try to share with the young women in my life. Two books that Moore shares with her readers - I'm No Angel by Kylie Bisutti and Popular by Tindell Baldwin - I had read previously and noted that they were very good tools to use with our girls. The lessons included in those books and in this one can not be repeated enough.

    The only small criticism I have is based on feedback from my girl. She wished there were more choices in the quizzes and felt that some of the choices didn't quite fit her.

    This is a great book for anyone who has a teen girl in their lives and would make a great gift. It is a great tool to open the doors of communication.

    This is a great book, and I'm glad that there's an edition geare

    This is a great book, and I'm glad that there's an edition geared specifically towards teen age girls. This is definitely a message that teens need to hear! My only reservation is that I'm not sure that all of the pictures reinforce the message as much as I would have liked for it to. Overall, a good read, though.

    First off, this is a fun way to create a book! With so much in

    First off, this is a fun way to create a book! With so much in the media these days about photoshop and body image, it's great that Tyndale Publishing crafted a magazine for Beth Moore's "So Long, Insecurity Teen Edition".

    From the cover to the contents to even the feel, it's just like an every day magazine for teen girls. But it's the contents that make this one stand out. For instance, in the section on fashion, there's lots said about modesty, but also some advice on problem areas with our figures and how to make the most of looking nice.

    These aren't problem areas like "my thighs are too huge". Nope, these are problem areas where modesty needs to take place, with cool suggestions that cover girls up but don't leave them feeling like freaks.

    The book covers quite a lot about media, and includes an interview with former Victoria Secret model Kylie Bisutti. Then there's a section on boys, the mystery of the female universe, popularity and the tough issues girls face in today's world.

    The layout makes the book feel less heavy handed and preachy, and more user friendly. I was really impressed with my complimentary copy from my friends at Tyndale House Publishers, and I'd recommend this one to pre-teen and teen girls, as well as college age and on up.

    Even better, read it with your daughter, or with your friends!

    ¿So Long Insecurity: Teen Edition¿ is vital for teenagers to rea

    ‘So Long Insecurity: Teen Edition’ is vital for teenagers to read. Many teenagers struggle with feeling secure, and with their self-image. Beth Moore is an amazing Bible teacher, and an amazing, insightful woman. She also interviews Kylie, a former Victoria Secret model who is now a role model for many girls, young women, and women. The books helps to confront false and deceptive images many young girls receive from media, friends, and family. This book has quizzes and other fun activities that teens enjoy. Sometimes teenagers don’t want to read a thick book, but the way this is set up makes it easy and enjoyable for teenage girls.

    So Long, Insecurity Teen Edition by Beth Moore is a magazine-sty

    So Long, Insecurity Teen Edition by Beth Moore is a magazine-style book filled with great tips, beautiful graphics, and ultimately the inspiring truth behind what makes a girl secure.  Each chapter contains a question with an answer by Beth based on various topics that relate to areas in which girls struggle with insecurity. Questions about fashion, guys, tough times, media, competition--Beth takes them head on, relating from her own experience and providing practical advice based on biblical principles.  Within each chapter there are statistics pertaining to how other girls feel, honest feedback from other girls about how they overcame their own struggles, a peek into a woman's life from the Bible that may have struggled in that area, and more.  There are also a couple of interviews from Kylie Bisutti (former Victoria's Secret model now sharing the truth of Jesus and encouraging girls in their inner beauty) and Tindell Baldwin (author of the book Popular: Boys, Booze, and Jesus).




    I really enjoyed the strong, biblical foundation of the book in general.  Not only was the theme question of every chapter answered with scripture, but I also really liked the simple and concise practical application.  I also loved how sweet and relatable Beth's writing style was--her words felt like those of a big sister, wrapping her arm around you, whispering words of encouragement!  A great easy read with a sweet message of worth that every girl needs to hear.




    I was a bit disappointed with some of the photos in the book, however--especially when discussing the topic of fashion.  At one point in the chapter, the book shows a picture of what not to wear, and what to wear instead.  These photos were not by any means pornographic or even extremely offensive, but it bothered me that there had to be photos there at all--why not just give a description?  And throughout the rest of the book there are small things like shorter skirts and some low shirts--nothing that I would worry about a young lady perusing through, but I wouldn't necessarily want my brother reading it. Another thing was there was a mild sense of coarseness in just a couple of words--nothing profane or outright offensive, but as I said, just a mild sense.  This book also mentions (in the profiles from woman of the Bible) topics that would be considered more for older young ladies (rape, etc.) when the book seems aimed more toward the younger teens (13-15), as well as topics that are more relatable for girls in the public schools. 




    All that to say, I still think that this was a fabulous book.  However, I do believe that it is written toward a specific audience of girls that are more out in the world by being in the public schools, or coming from non-Christian families, etc.  Girls that have been homeschooled for the majority of their lives and that have come from strong Christian families may have a harder time relating to some of the questions, stories, and topics that are discussed.




    To conclude, I must say that I am so grateful for women like Beth Moore for taking on these issues that girls face on a day by day basis and reminding them of who they are in Christ--how that is where their security lies.  What a blessing to have those gone before!  I look forward to having So Long, Insecurity on my shelf to give to a young lady who can be blessed and encouraged; reminded that she is a daughter of the King!

    I received a hard copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

    This time, author Beth Moore decided to take a different approac

    This time, author Beth Moore decided to take a different approach when speaking to adolescents.  This book version is done in a magazine layout with bright pictures of teenage girls of all ethnicity.  The entire book is done in a question and answer type of format, just like you would find in your favorite magazine.  Beth Moore tackles tough questions that young people face like, am I good enough? What does real beauty look like?  Plus, everything girls want to know about boys!  There are 8 chapters and the end of the book has a prayer of salvation for those who wish to make this change.

    About The Book:

    So Long, Insecurity, Teen Edition is a teen version of the New York Times bestselling adult book, So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore. This magazine-style book mixes words of wisdom from Moore with pictures, quizzes, surveys, scripture, and more to help girls ages 12-16 live based on God’s truth about them as opposed to the world’s false messages. Features in each chapter include: Q & A with Beth (taken from adult book but written to appeal to a younger audience), Sweet Notes (scriptures that pertain to the chapter’s subject), Your Stats (a survey/poll of what girls think regarding the subject), Interviews with real girls (and a few teen spokespeople), a quiz to help girls gauge where they are, Bible characters with similar issues, and a wrap-up section for discussion with a friend or in a group. Girls will have fun reading about boys, fashion, the media, gifts and skills, competing with other girls, and how they can live as secure girls despite the distractions from the world.

    My Review:

    So Long, Insecurity, Teen Edition is an interesting magazine-style book with. This book has tons of things that will help your teenage girl with all of insecurities that are in her life. This book includes:

    Questions you have about real life, answered by Beth Moore
    Quizzes to find where you stand on fashion, media, boys, and friends
    Polls where girls like you weigh in on issues of insecurity
    Interviews with real girls on handling tough situations
    Stories of women in the Bible who battled insecurity
    Interviews with girls and teen advocates, including former Victoria’s Secret model Kylie Bisutti, who have gone through the same things you have
    And much, much more!

    My Thoughts:

    I like taking the quizzes because it helped me learn more about myself. Even though some of them weren't too good. I took the quiz on How well (or not) you handle your interactions with guys and I got this answer: While it's not a good idea too fall all over guys, it's also not healthy to hide out from them. Work at being yourself no matter who is around. Not exactly what I expected.

    At the end of each chapter, is a thing called Bible Girls. Which tells about a certain girl from the bible and her story. Each girls story corresponds with the subject in the chapter. Like Esther is the Bible Girl for the chapter 1: fashion and beauty, The Daughters of Zelophehad for chapter 2: media hype, and so on.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It's both fun and full of information. So Long, Insecurity, Teen Edition has both beautiful pictures and helpful info.

    What My Mom Thought:

    Beth Moore is well known for her awesome ministry whether she is helping women or families. But this book where she reaches out to teens is probably in my opinion, her best yet. I joined my daughter on reviewing this book and I'm glad I did. The mean girls chapter really spoke to me because something like that happened to my daughter.

    Recently, my daughter had small conflict with a girl that caused a small rift in our family. It was something that shocked us all about this young girl. While my husband and I believe that this young girl was doing this hurtful act towards our daughter because she felt threatened in some way, we were not going to allow ourselves to act on our hurt feelings or our daughter's. Instead we lifted her up in prayer and prayed that whatever this was that was binding this child up and causing her to act out be loosed in the name of Jesus.

    Beth Moore gives our teen girls some really good advice. I think ever mother that has a teen daughter should read this book. It will give you some really insightful advice that could possibly help your daughter AND help you as a parent.

    About The Author:

    Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 with the purpose of teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God, and When Godly People Do Ungodly Things, that have been read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. Through the years, American missionaries and expatriates have taken the Bible studies overseas, resulting in Beth Moore Bible study groups popping up all over the world. Beth’s Living Proof Live conferences have taken her to thirty-nine states since 1994 and have been attended by more than 421,000 women. God has graciously given her the opportunity to speak to the body of Christ in many different countries, including Ireland, England, Singapore, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and India. With great joy, she began a radio ministry in 2004 called Living Proof with Beth Moore.
