    While it had some good points, this book was very offensive to me. I have never read a more biased, homophobic, antifeminist book. I can understand why some Christians are so ignorant, but really, this is just another reason why I hate to call myself a Christian even though I follow Christ - I don't like the way "Christians" act. For example, trying to convince me that homosexuality is a sin and then saying, "Sin removes joy... Sin brings physical damage...Sin produces fear." Oh, really? I've ne While it had some good points, this book was very offensive to me. I have never read a more biased, homophobic, antifeminist book. I can understand why some Christians are so ignorant, but really, this is just another reason why I hate to call myself a Christian even though I follow Christ - I don't like the way "Christians" act. For example, trying to convince me that homosexuality is a sin and then saying, "Sin removes joy... Sin brings physical damage...Sin produces fear." Oh, really? I've never seen homosexuality do any of that - in fact, I'd say in most cases it does the opposite of all of those. To quote 1 John 4:8, "God is love." So why in the world are these authors so against love? Doesn't sound Christian to me. Then there's the whole antifeminist chapter. Literally an entire chapter saying how, even though society is trying to make people believe that men and women should be equal... that's wrong? It tried to argue that, simply because Adam was made first, he was superior to Eve. I actually believe that, well, SOMEONE had to be made first. If it had been Eve, meninism would be a real thing, and feminism the joke. After venting about this to my friend, they told me that they believed Adam to have been a woman originally, and that Eve, being made from Adam, is technically a clone of Adam and therefore could hardly be a different sex. I added that, before sin, there was no need for reproduction, because there was no death, so it's totally plausible. The rest could have been part of the curse. Not to mention, "Adam" is the Hebrew word for "human," genderlessly, so really, "Adam" may not be a name as much as it is a title, per se. The worst part, though, is that these authors just think they're SO RIGHT about it on the flimsiest evidence. Bible verses that could be interpreted a hundred different ways and a little story that, for all we know, could have been fictional aren't convincing to me about something I believe with all my heart. And that is that God loves us all equally and sees the soul before he sees the gender he made us, and wants us to love each other like that, too. I believe God is a feminist. Not that he values people who are only wives and mothers and have no job. God calls us all different ways, so who's to say women shouldn't want a job? Too "manly?" I think that this aspect of the book is more influenced by the scum of the earth than I am by disagreeing and believing differently. When I started typing this, I literally told myself I wouldn't go off and argue the whole book, because it was really only about 30% of the book I found offensive. Whoops. Maybe I just really want the authors to stop sounding so cocky about everything - the voice used in some of these chapters made me feel like you thought you were getting your words directly from Jesus, but I strongly disagree. Really, the only reason this book has more than one star is because it did have some good points about other things, like how wasted time could be used better or that having a "good life" isn't necessarily the best life to lead. Good try, guys. But please, do some research next time you write a book. God bless you both. <3

    I had to pray about writing this review because the book had made me say yes one minute and be angry about the closed mindedness the other. What do I agree with: 1. Definitely do not think that you cannot live without your friends, current set or any other set. 2. Definitely do not think that you are nothing without your boyfriend 3. Definitely do not thing that you have to do what he asks for sexually if you want to wait for marriage before taking that step. 4. Definitely do not let peer pressure I had to pray about writing this review because the book had made me say yes one minute and be angry about the closed mindedness the other. What do I agree with: 1. Definitely do not think that you cannot live without your friends, current set or any other set. 2. Definitely do not think that you are nothing without your boyfriend 3. Definitely do not thing that you have to do what he asks for sexually if you want to wait for marriage before taking that step. 4. Definitely do not let peer pressure push you into anything that you find incompatible with your faith. What I do NOT Agree with: 1. That practicing the exercises of yoga is a satanic or other faith practice. It's just exercise and you can connect with God this way just as well as through other ways. 2. That meditation practices are not good for Christians. If we meditate on bible verses what can be wrong about that? AND the absolute worst one from this book: That women have but one primary purpose to be a good wife and mother. That motherhood is their fulfillment. What a lot of baloney. I did not chose motherhood because I am not good mother material. I am glad God let me live in a time where contraception is possible and I did not have to have babies. (It would have been a sad life for them, indeed.) I am not a career woman who spends 60 hours a week working. But I do object to someone telling me that my only true calling was to get married and have kids. I don't even like kids, not yours and I am sure mine neither. The mere thought of having kids is awful to me. And don't someone write to me and tell me about the ticking clock. I have been on contraception for 38 years and am just about done with that kind of "fruitful" part of my life and I never once heard one single "tick" nor one single "tock" EVER! If God had made me to embrace motherhood He would have 1. given me a better mother, 2. given me the desire for kids, and 3. supplied the skills. He did none of that. So, regardless of what verse you want to toss my way, motherhood was NOT my calling. And there are plenty of other women who are in the same position. I chose not to have kids, I didn't want kids, I don't have kids, I don't like kids, I never wanted kids, from the very earliest thoughts I did not want kids. Ever.

    What a frustrating read. Putting aside my personal thoughts on religion, the authors promote behavior that I think is illogical and alienating. Consider yourself gender-fluid, trans, gay, lesbian, or bi? Want to explore sexual experiences while you're young? Believe that women can have a say in decisions during a marriage and don't have to be mothers to live fulfilling lives? Enjoy doing yoga? Like movies, music, or literature that has any scene with sex, violence, or illicit behavior? Curious a What a frustrating read.

Want to explore sexual experiences while you're young? Believe that women can have a say in decisions during a marriage and don't have to be mothers to live fulfilling lives? Enjoy doing yoga? Like movies, music, or literature that has any scene with sex, violence, or illicit behavior? Curious about your horoscope, zodiac, tarot cards, or palm readings? Then you are one of many being "tricked" in our "fallen world" of human emotions. Never mind that many modern laws, inventions, movements, and so on that we may take for granted were created precisely because people are driven by emotional experiences. Yikes. And there's no consideration whatsoever for anyone who may be seriously ill or suffering any sort of physical disability. Depression, obsessions, and suicidal thoughts get mild mentions, but that's about it for tackling mental health issues. The idea that anyone outside of the Midwest U.S. community doesn't even register a footnote for a book that claims to be understanding for younger women is also terrifying. At times, the authors give advice I can agree with ("your happiness shouldn't be judged entirely by your accomplishments", "treasure inner beauty first within yourself and others", "reach out to others less fortunate than you") before it crash lands by promoting extrinsic dependency or by contradicting themselves within the same page (or paragraph sometimes). Because God is stated to be an entity outside of you, and the only one worthy of your absolute love, obedience, and loyalty. It's probably not intentional, but carrying that kind of mindset dilutes any encouragement to learn from personal experiences to me. And implies that punishment and conditioning works for all, which may actually drive people further apart than the authors intended. I appreciate that the authors are reporting success stories for women turning their lives around with their support. Bravo. But this book is not one that I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone outside of educational or critical-thinking debates. I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.

    This book definitely deserves more than five stars. I went into this book knowing that the author was going to make a list of lies every girl and woman most likely believe(d) at some point in their life. And I already knew that there were lies I have believed, I just didn't know which ones.

But it's not true, and I highly recommend this book. I strongly encourage every. single. girl. to read this. Boys may even want to read it. I think that some of these lies, even boys may tend to believe to. But, in my opinion, the first step you need to take, before you read the book, is: Admit to yourself that there are lies that you believe, even though you may not know what they are. Yet.

    Extreme Not completely without merit otherwise I'd be writing that it should get zero stars; however, the majority of viewpoints in this book are far too extreme to be practical and every time I think I read a nice lovely sentiment that actually resonates with me, it is followed by extremist absurdity that just doesn't align with my faith.

    I'm not the target age group for this book. I actually read it to see if I could recommend it to others. The message of the book is very good. It's honest, practical, and helpful. For any Christian girl in her teens who is immersed in today's culture and the typical church, it is a message that needs to be read and applied. For those who have lived sheltered lives, parts of it would be unnecessary and perhaps better skipped, though there's still an incredible amount of worthwhile material.

The reader learns to take the Bible and apply it to real life clearly and practically. The part I don't like is the layout, extra page embellishments, sidebars... It's distracting, interrupting, and annoying. Maybe it appeals to the target group, but I don't need a lime-green header on each page, and I don't like interrupting the thought flow to read a definition in a circle or a side bar of practical ideas or illustration. I still managed to find the good things. If you find yourself plagued by depression, eating disorders, bad habits, sinful desires, and so many other things, you'll find help here. You'll find the solution, because the help comes from God's Word.

    This book's excellent title appears to introduce a very helpful topic: that there are many lies told to young women today which they would do well to question. What is not so apparent from the title is that the lies dealt with here are not those generally formed in society, but those which could plague young Christians specifically about the practice of their faith and how it impacts their personal lives. The solutions it offers therefore are possibly not quite as attractive to a general audienc This book's excellent title appears to introduce a very helpful topic: that there are many lies told to young women today which they would do well to question. What is not so apparent from the title is that the lies dealt with here are not those generally formed in society, but those which could plague young Christians specifically about the practice of their faith and how it impacts their personal lives. The solutions it offers therefore are possibly not quite as attractive to a general audience as to a young Christian audience. The initial 'test' it proposes to readers to discern whether or not they are in the grip of the lies which will be explored contains some suggestions which could be generally helpful, and others which are more directly Christian. It asks whether you are 'Happy to be single' or 'Gotta have a guy'; 'Happy with what you've got' or 'Ugly'; 'Content with what you've got' or 'Must shop now'; 'The real deal' or 'Different depending on whom I'm with' etc. The more specifically Christian considerations include 'Forgiven' or 'Guilty'; 'Walking in victory' or 'Unable to overcome certain sins' and 'Confident of God's protection' or 'Afraid of Satan'. The substantial Bible Christian theology throughout offers a particular interpretation of Scripture and Church teaching that may not concord with those of other denominations. As often found in spiritual personal development books aimed at young adults, many of the examples given are quite drastic, including a romantic relationship between a father and daughter which also involves drug use, models starving themselves, children who were abused, Satanic worship in Africa etc. Many others are about experiences in Christian youth groups, both spiritual and general in friendships and romantic relationships. The first section of lies dealt with in the book is directly about God, and the second is about Satan, following the strongly Christian tone of the book. Then it explores lies about myself, including my worth, my appearance and my performance. Then lies about guys: I need a boyfriend, it's ok to go out with a non-Christian, things that are 'not really sex', and the loneliness of staying pure. Then lies about relationships, lies about faith (including 'My youth pastor is my connection with God'), lies about sin, lies about media and wasting time, and finally lies about the 'lack of fulfilment' of living the role of a wife and mother without external employment. www.GoodReadingGuide.com

It's supposed to be a kind of daily/weekly bible study, but I read through it in four days! I thought the authors did a very good job creating a well organized and scripture based study--I didn't even mind the side bars. The sections were all informative with supporting passages from the bible and each part used real concerns from real girls. Although I have never really believed in some of the lies presented (ie: "God is just like my father") I did find that some of the relating topics addressed under these headers were lies and doubts I have fallen into. What I really liked was how based in scripture it was. As I said, there were supporting passages for each affirmation and the authors provided tons of stories and concerns to back up the "right-here-right-now" feeling we all have about confronting these lies. Everything always tied back to Jesus and our redemption in Him. Even though I'm not in high school anymore, so many of these lies that we experience are concerns even as we grow older--we might not outright say "The benefits of constant media use outweigh the harm," but I'm sure all of us have experienced saying, "I can just watch a little more; it'll be ok." So, yes, I really liked this devotional/bible study and I think it will definitely come into good use as I head off into my future!

    Never before have I read such a homophobic, transphobic, anti-feminist pos before. Don't believe me? There's a whole chapter on why women shouldn't get careers and why they should stay at home, marry some guy and have his kids. There is also a chapter on sexual wholeness and lesbianism. They shamed rape victims and lesbians. This book frickin sucks. Edit: I do NOT support censorship on any way, shape, or form. BUT I don't support homophobic, transphobic, and anti-feminist literature.

    This book is a very useful tool to encourage young women, but I thought they took their biblical interpretations a bit far at times and I didn't agree with all of their points about a woman's purpose (it was from an extremely conservative standpoint). Other than that, I received a lot of helpful truth from this book!

    Not sure what the bad comments are about. I'm approximately 1/3 or maybe more through the book and enjoying it so far. My teen pastor gave it to me and I trust that he wouldn't give me a book to read that didn't line up with the scripture. So very much enjoying it so far. :)

This book reminded me of the younger me I thought was healed and long over things. This book revealed new things about the younger me that I never thought of or knew. I love how Nancy and Dannah kept this biblical and included and galore of scriptures to back up their points. This includes personal stories from both Dannah and Nancy as well as stories from other women. I loved reading through them and then seeing how it correlated with my personal life and scripture. Everything mentioned in this book from beauty to friends to social media to sex to family and more...it all was perfection. I highly recommend this to 7th graders on up. Even if you're an adult, read this because it can help you heal your younger self. I am so glad I read this book and cannot wait to dive into the other books within this series: - Lies Women Believe - Lies Men Believe - Lies Girls Believe

Authors Nancy Leigh Demoss and Dannah Gresh speak it like it is and continually point you to the truth of God's word. Although written for young middle-high schoolers, I truly feel that it takes a maturity to step out and grasp on to these Truths. On my first read years ago, I wasn't ready to put that much work into re-training my mind. Reading this book is NOT magic. Even if you SEE your faulty logic and SEE God's truth, it is a battle to grow and guard your heart and mind from these same lies in the future. God is good though, and it is a battle that IS do-able, with His help!

    This book was absolutely amazing and so helpful! I read and read until I had just about finished it and had learned so much by the end. I loved how it was so applicable to any young woman: though there were some areas which I don't struggle in as much, other bits I could completely identify with and so no one would be able to avoid reading it with the excuse "it's not relevant to me"! I really recommend it to any young women, particularly those around 14 and 15, and I so wish I had read this bef This book was absolutely amazing and so helpful!

    I thought this book was very good. I structured my reading of it as a bible study: cutting out a portion of my day to read it, reading a chapter a day. It was slightly annoying to have to find a good breaking point in order to read the little blurbs on the side, but for the most part they held useful information. This book has positively impacted my life. I noticed some of the parts in the book pertained to me and used those sections to help my life.

    I recommend this book for older girls/young women...easily 16 yrs. and older. Not for girls younger than 14 and even then, it would depend on their life experiences...if a girl has been exposed to sexual experiences either in real life or via books and movies, then she's not getting a Biblical view of those things and this study would help her get the right perspective on these issues.

I did a Bible study with two of my teen-aged granddaughters with this book. It addressed issues regarding body image, beauty, dating, sex, and accountability(use of time, following rules, etc.) based on Scripture, i.e., what does God say about these things?

    Reading this book was like sitting in a cozy living room sipping on hot cups of cider while Nancy and Dannah talked with you. They approached you in a warm, gentle manner. They did not hesitate to cut to the truth and tell you some raw, pure honesty, but they did it with godliness and gentleness - even throwing in some nice humor while they were at it! If every young girl wanted to read this book, it would do them great benefit, I'm sure.

They didn't give you a formula - they gave you the only way to overcome lies. By prayer and the Truth in Scripture.

    I recommend this book even for adult women. I started off reading it in the thoughts of using it in teaching younger women, but then I found myself surprised at how many of these lies just carry over into our adult years. Nancy and Dannah cover lies in nine different areas of our lives and then covers practical help to overcome the lies. It's worth a read because you might not even be aware of the lies you have fallen for. Prepare to have your toes stepped on a bit but if you're wanting to be mo I recommend this book even for adult women.

    Me and my friend Mariah lead a biblestudy at our school and we used this book. I loved it because it shares tips and lies we belive. I relate because it revolves around relating to teen girls and it hits it head on! I would recommend this to any GIRL! Guys, its in the title! :) This book was awesome and very helpful! :) This book uses symbolism as the Bible does. Like the Lion and the Lamb and stuff like that. It also does a good job of characterization. When a new person (actual person) is introd Me and my friend Mariah lead a biblestudy at our school and we used this book.

    Lies Young Women Believe is an excellent resource for teen-agers. DeMoss and Cresh detail 25 lies often believed by young women. They interviewed many young women and tell some of their stories and they share their own experiences with overcoming lies and learning to hang onto the truth. They give practical and biblical solutions to countering the lies and trusting in the truth. Topics covered include lies about God, about Satan, about guys, about relationships, and more.

    Though the subjects covered in this book were very relevant to most teenage girl's lives, my friends and I agreed that this book wasn't much help. The lies were presented in a clear way and we knew we had believed several of them, but when it came to actually solving the problem, we found that there wasn't much help offered. This is just our opinion, so please, if you think this book might help you, don't let this review warn you away. Different things work for different people.

    This book is completely awesome! It speaks the truth in so many ways to young women and, brings answers to certain questions that teen girls often have. It confronts fears that a lot of teen girls face and exposes the lies that satan tells us throughout our everyday life. I would recommend "Lies Young Woman Believe" to any of my girlfriends and (the book that was written before LYWB) "Lies Women Believe" to many women that I know. Again... it was awesome!!! Read it sometime. =)

    This book is extremely encouraging. It shines a light in this dark world of ours. Many parts are very convicting, as this book is supposed to be. I find that the most important part in this book is the Truth that Sets Them Free. All of the passages and true stories this book includes releases the young women who read this book from the bondages that the world puts us in.
