With the same candor

Overview

You know her--the good girl. She's the reliable one who shows up every week at youth group wearing a purity ring and a smile. She gets good grades, makes the team, and doesn't need to be told to come home on time. But deep down she is crushed by the weight of the responsibility to be the good one, the smart one, the one who never messes up.

With the same candor and gentle spirit she showed women in Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman now gives young women what they need to be free on the inside, no matter what's going on outside. Through an honest look at the roles girls play, she helps them learn to stop trying and start trusting that the Jesus who came to save them also comes to live with them, right here and now.

"Graceful" is a gem. Books for teenage girls are often too casual or too intense. I should know since I was the girl in high school who read every book that I thought might make me "better." This book is written with the perfect tone and full of life-changing truths. Practical, real, funny but not frilly, and deep. And not one checklist to be found. Teenage girls will find comfort in Emily's charming vulnerability, probably feeling like she's right in there the room with them. Small group leaders will find comfort in having such a strong message articulated clearly that's accompanied by a great leader guide available on the author's website. Moms will find comfort in knowing that someone is speaking truth into the lives of their daughters, truth that might have been revealed to them through Emily's first book, "Grace for the Good Girl." This book is for young women who feel like they have DO in order to be loved, valued, and accepted. I am thrilled that girls who read this book will experience freedom from having to try so hard when they're young and not wait until they're 30 with kids. If you know a teenage girl who is doing everything right, buy this book for her. Chances are, she's about to crumble under her own pressure, and "Graceful" offers truth that brings peace and freedom that will seriously change her life.

This book is incredible! Every woman should buy one for their sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, and female friend. This book guides young woman toward living a life in God's grace rather than under the self-imposed burden of performance.
