"So Long, Insecurity - Teen Edition" by Beth Moore

Insecurity can manifest itself in many forms, from problems with body image to popularity races to acting out and beyond. But, insecurity can be overcome, and in her new book, Beth Moore reaches out to teens to help them win the battle. 

Written like a magazine, "So Long, Insecurity - Teen Edition," tackles tough topics like boys, true beauty, gifts and talents, and friends/foes. Through the pages, Bible women offer strength for the tough times. These women include: Dorcas, the Daughters of Zelophehad, and Hannah. There are also interviews with today's teens to bring the points home. Each chapter addresses a topic realistically, offers solutions, contains a short quiz, and ends with "Dear Jesus, I love you! Me"

I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it. Beth Moore offers Biblical solutions to real problems and lets teenage girls know they are not alone. The cover looks like an exciting magazine from a newsstand, and the chapters are written more like multiple paged, multifaceted articles. If you are a teen struggling with insecurity, have a friend who does, or are the parent/relative of one such teen, this book is for you. I think it would make a great study for teen groups. I received my review copy from the Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Donna,
    Good evening! I came across your blog while doing some research for some clients I'm working with, and saw that you've previously reviewed Beth Moore. Beth has a new book coming out in October called Whispers of Hope and I wanted to see if you might be interested in reviewing it. You can find additional information about the book below.
    Please let me know if you're interested in reviewing the book on your blog and I'll be happy to mail you a copy. We also have copies available for giveaways if you're interested in hosting one. We're aiming for reviews to post in October and November.
    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Whispers of Hope, Beth Moore

    Scripture tells us to pray without ceasing, but how in the world do we do that? In fact, how should we effectively pray to begin with?

    Best-selling author Beth Moore addresses these practical and pervasive matters in Whispers of Hope by walking readers through an easy to remember and apply method of prayer, coupled with seventy daily devotionals and followed by prompts to put this prayer method into practice.

    Indeed, Whispers of Hope teaches the manifestation process of powerful Word-saturated prayer in response to a daily Bible reading. In turn, you will better understand how devotional reading and prayer are central to a stronger relationship with God.
