A Young Woman's Guide to Making Right Choices: Your Life God's Way by Elizabeth George
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Elizabeth George is one of my favorite authors due to her sound Biblical content combined with practical and daily application. In this book she continues that Biblical and practical content in a fun, upbeat, and youth-focused way.
Each chapter in the book opens with an excerpt about a girl named Hannah and her story builds through out the book. In a very godly and appropriate way, Elizabeth talks to teen girls about the choices they face every day and how to make choices that glorify God. The book overall is easy and fun to read with great questions that can be discussed in a group or used alone for journaling prompts.
While this book is probably best for 13 to 16 year-olds, it could be used by any age teen girl or in any teen girl group setting. It makes for a great group Bible study when the girls read the first half of the chapter and then work through the questions and Scripture as a group.
