“A Young Woman After God’s Own Heart” by Elizabeth George


What does it mean to live God in your everyday life? It means knowing and following God’s perfect plan for you as a young woman. Learn how to…grow close to God
get along with your family and friends
make the right kinds of choices
become more like Jesus
prepare for the future
fulfill the desires of your heart

As you read along, you’ll find yourself caught up in the exciting adventure of a lifetime—that of becoming a woman after God’s own heart! You’ll love the special “Heart Response” sections created just for you. And the practical “Things to Do Today” will help you in your desire to know and follow God. (Summary from the new edition. I couldn’t find the summary for the old edition. I read the old edition.)

Rating: ★★★★★ (4.5 stars)
Bible Translation(s) used: NIV, with KJV, and NLT
Controversial: The word “stupid” is used at least once, but it’s not labeling someone. I *think* there was a part that could be considered inappropriate, but I didn’t feel it was because it was used to make a good point (I think the Bible mentions it too). NLT is used. (Not my top pick for Bible translations.)
Romance: None
Age: 14+, 13 if read with your mom
When I got this book from the library over a month ago, I didn’t know how helpful it’d be. It talks about many things–from friendship, to home life, to purity. One of my favorite sections was the one on submission, which is something probably every young lady needs/wants to work on. At the end of each chapter, the book has a section called “Things to do today to develop a heart (that) _________” It’s easy to read a book, but not put what you’ve learned/read into practice. That’s exactly what this book does, encourages you to practice what you’ve learned. This book is a help to any young lady who wants to be more like Him.
