Be Happy, Feel Beautiful
Many young women have conformed to the lies of this society, especially ones perpetuated through various forms of media. This can lead to suicide, severe depression, or self-hurt due to the low self-esteem women acquire by comparing themselves with Victoria Secret models and celebrities.
The Christian book Lies Young Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free, written by Nancy Leigh Demoss and Dannah Gresh, uncovers 25 most common lies that society has tricked us into believing about ourselves and others. Topics range from spirituality and relationships to lies that are specifically targeted towards young women, such as appearance. In addition, Demoss and Gresh include their own testimonies in the respective topics.
Although Demoss and Gresh tell readers how Biblical teachings will set them free, any young woman can read this, believer or non-believer alike. Everyone who wants to break free from these lies can find solutions and suggestions here. I have read the book and found it to be helpful for every young woman in this world and it will not fail to help you get back up on your feet.
In addition to Lies Young Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets Them Free, Nancy Leigh Demoss wrote a similar book for women, Lies Women Believe, which discusses lies that women (post-college and older) face and how to break free from them.
Both books are available for purchase at Barnes and Nobles or at any bookstore near you. If you want to know more about the book, visit www.liesyoungwomenbelieve.com.
You’re more than who you think you are. We are all unique in our different way and this society cannot determine what that is for us. Everyone falls but it’s time to get back up and start over. Have confidence that you can break through these lies!
