"Your Girl" by Vicki Courtney
NOTE: I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
I must say that I found this book very helpful. It was full of God guided advice, Scripture verses and enlightening conclusions. I expected an instruction book, but found something much more valuable. It was not only a guide to mothers, it could very well serve as a guide to their daughters.
I think that in the times we live, we need to open our eyes and actually look around to see how much the world affects us as people. We are born unique people, then we conform to society, to our peers, to others' expectations of us. And our uniqueness is quickly forgotten.
But Vicki Courtney, through personal examples and national studies, can help open up our eyes. She writes about love and understanding, and keeping our ground no matter how difficult it may seem at times. Her advice is realistic and accomplishable through faith in God and Jesus Christ. By realizing what the Lord did for us, and keeping it in mind all through the day, we could truly become better attuned to the many ways He loves us and blesses us.
"Your Girl" is a keeper book for all mothers of today's age, who are concerned about their daughters growing up in a world where girls are considered toys, objects and visual stimulants for men. I sure am going to re-read it once I become a mother.
I rate it with
