Book Description:

DRAW NEARER TO GOD and discover your divine destiny in the words you repeat every week. This inspiring book helps you better understand the Young Women theme by breaking down each section and sharing the story of how and why the theme was created.

- How to stand as a witness at all times
- What it means to accept and act upon your values
- How to strengthen your home and family now and in the future
- The importance of covenants and ordinances
- How much your Heavenly Father loves you

THOUGHT-PROVOKING AND UPLIFTING, this book makes a wonderful gift to share with young women, parents, and leaders.

My Thoughts:

Working with Young Women, speaking to Young Women, helping Young Women come to know Christ, it's all my passion. I feel it's my purpose and what I was born to do. I LOVE this book. In fact, I'm obsessed with this book. I may or may not take it everywhere with me. It so perfectly teaches Young Women why the Young Women theme was born and how they can better live it in their own life.

Jen has done a brilliant job at breaking down the Young Women's theme to show what every single line that is said every Sunday really means. She so perfectly helps Young Women understand what it means to be a Daughter of God and why that is so important. Jen interviewed Sister Ardeth Kapp Perry, who started the Young Women's theme in the 80's. 

This book is a MUST read for every teen girl. Every girl that knows who she is and is looking for a better way to fulfill her role as His daughter, and for every girl who needs to gain a stronger testimony of what it means to be His daughter. 

I LOVE that every single page has so many spiritual gems and truths that really make you think about the gospel and how to live it more fully. There are so many scripture references in this book that a girl could read one page a day, and then study the scriptures on that given page and take SO much away.

Jen has also included great questions to personally ponder on with room to right down personal thoughts. I love this because I believe journaling is a huge key to developing more faith and more self esteem.
