At 14, my daughter is a lot like me. She likes to write, so journaling her thoughts and answers is the best way for her to study God’s Word. In Becoming God’s True Woman…While I Still Have a Curfew she and other teen girls have plenty of space to jot down those thoughts and answers to the questions in this book study. Also, she’ll feel connected to the teen girls who have shared their stories throughout the book, making the Bible study more appealing and applicable in her life.
Each lesson includes the following to help your teenage daughter become a true woman of God:
- Short story relating the Bible to what she may be going through
- Time to think section asking questions and giving her room to write
- Time to pray space encouraging her to pray preselected Scripture.
- Time to live for God’s glory space asking her how she can apply this to her life or prompting her to do something
My daughter doesn’t quite hear what I tell her about her attitude toward her father and me. I sure hope she takes to hear the lesson titled “That Girl’s Got Attitude” since it’s coming from someone other than her nagging parents.
Honestly, I was convicted reading some of these lessons and I’m in my 30s.
Scripture translations include ESV, HCSB, NIV, and NKJV. I received the book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

What you spend your time with and allow your mind to dwell on will be displayed in your life. Girls need to realize that they should only spend their time enjoying the words, sounds and images they want to become. (Allison, age 17)
The media encourages girls to be loud and bossy. In shows, the quiet girl is always picked on and ridiculed. (Connie Jean, age 13)
Modesty to me is beauty. It outwardly symbolizes what Christ has done to our hearts-made them new, clean and worthy of coming into God’s presence . . . that’s what modesty is about. (RuthAnne, age 17)
