What People are Saying About This
Praise for Lies Girls Believe
I loved Lies Young Women Believe by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh. And now, I am so excited to see Lies Girls Believe introduce younger girls to the Truth that sets them free. Only Jesus can do that, but Dannah makes understanding how to experience it so accessible. I can’t wait to get it into the hands of my granddaughters!
Founder and director of Virtue, the women’s ministry at Harvest Christian Fellowship
Our daughters are being surrounded by positive sounding messages like "Girl Boss" and "Girls Rule the World." But is that the truth? No—the truth is that Jesus is the boss and He rules! I’m so glad Dannah Gresh has written this guide for moms to combat the lies of social media, pop culture, and foolish friends. Grab your daughter and this book, and head to a favorite spot to talk. I know this book will be the conversation starter for many intentional dates with my daughters!
Speaker and author of Parents Rising and 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom
Girls have never had a more fun way to discover Truth and help them recognize the lies that break trust and relationships. Dannah Gresh clearly compares the lies to Truth in ways girls can identify to correct beliefs about themselves and discover Christ’s goal for their life.

Author of DNA of D6: Building Blocks of Generational Discipleship
Our girls’ lives depend on their mothers knowing God’s truth. That sounds like a cliché, but for me it was and is still paramount to saving my daughter’s life. Dannah unfolds a process that sets the mother-daughter team free to dispel lies and uncover the truth God wants us to believe about His love for us, ourfamilies, friendships, and our future. You’ll learn how to listen, dwell, believe, and act on God’s truth. Therein is freedom.

Lies Girls Believe is fantastic tool for moms to prepare their daughters to stand strong against the lies they will be tempted to believe in their teens and twenties and beyond. Invest in your daughter’s future by equipping her with truth. Because the old saying got it right—an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure!
