Lies Girls Believe

I loved this book which I got for my tween girls. It’s a full-colour, glossy paged handbook for tween girls about the lies that girls tend to believe about themselves, their families, and God. This book is part of a series that includes Lies Men Believe, Lies Women Believe and Lies Young Women Believe.

The book is written by two women. Nancy is the editor for all the Lies We Believe Series while Dannah has added the information specific to girls. The book is full of fun fonts, cool illustrations and lines where girls can answer questions.

For each chapter, a truth is introduced and then following is a lie that is opposite of that truth. Sometimes included is what some real girls said about that topic. Also statistics from research the authors did is included (such as 81% of girls fight with their siblings.) Truth Nuggets are dropped that counteract each lie. Real stories from real girls are included to illustrate the points.

SOME of the lies included are: God only loves me when I’m good, pretty girls are worth more, my family is sooo weird, My sin isn’t that big a deal, Boys and girls aren’t really that different, It’s okay to be boy crazy and It’s okay to be mean.

A Mom’s Guide to Lies Girls Believe

A Mom's Guide to Lies Girls Believe & The Truth That Sets Them Free by Dannah GreshThere is also a mom’s guide that you can purchase along with the girl’s guide, so you can follow along with your own book and then discuss what you’ve learned. I think this is a great idea.

For the most part, the mom’s guide follows along with the girls’ guide. However case studies are included of real girls who have been dealing with some problems so you can see how important it is to help your daughter see these lies for what they are.

At the end of each chapter is a spot to write a prayer to God and a suggestion to discuss the chapter with your daughter after she has read it. Also just like the girl’s guide includes statistics of what girls believe, the mom’s guide includes statistics of what mom’s believe (such as 80% of moms were less concerned about their own daughters than other girls.)

I highly recommend both the girls and mom’s guides to be used together with your tween daughters.
