  1. You just described me perfectly. Oy. I guess that makes me a good candidate to lead a Graceful Bible Study? I actually recently moved to a new church with little in place for youth. I think I will get a group together for this book. Can’t wait!

  2. Yikes, 8 out of 10. She needs it. Thanks for this Emily. I tried to get her to read Grace for the Good Girl with me in the summer but she was too busy being one. So thankful you’ve written a book just for her at this season of life. Good Christmas gift.

      • It didn’t show up in the e-mail, but I found it at the site. Amy, did you try clicking to load the page at the web site? Seems like the embedded thingys don’t get through sometimes. BTW, great video, Emily! Will show dd right after we finish physics, lol.

  3. Wow. I see them all in my 10 year old and I see them all in me. I have praying the last couple of years that the things of habit and “learnt” religion would be cut off in my generation and not passed on to her. I am nearly 40 and they have tied me up. He is setting me free. I am going to trust it for her too. Thank you so much Emily.

  4. I love the title and topic of your book — my question is … would the book apply to or work for beyond-high-school-age women as well? I’m considerably beyond those years but the quiz describes me … and many others I know.

    • Sure would.

      Or you could just read Grace for the Good Girl – the book I wrote for everyone else (meaning older than high school).

      Although I know several women who have read the teen one and really enjoyed it.

  5. And if you are a teen times by about 3, and all of these apply to you, you might need to read it, too.

    Just sayin. I did. Loved it.

  6. I want to thank you so much for giving the preview chapters and the other freebies today. I am your sister in Christ, and your sister in being a Good Girl, so I swallowed up your first book. My daughter is so, so not like me in 100 ways (she’s 13) that I didn’t really plan to get this book for her. But because of the preview, I downloaded the chapters for her and asked her to read them and let me know if she’d be interested in the book. She was! I’m excited to give her this perspective. Thank you for all you do, and for helping out a mama in the process!

  7. Love this! Anyone know of a book that would match for a boy? My oldest is a boy, fits similar description. 😉

  8. I participated in this book study this past summer with my church youth group and absolutely loved it. I am hoping to use this material in a bible/book study for my freshman dorm. Any advice in modifying the material to fit a college student’s life? I feel like a good portion of the material is still very applicable to college students as well or any age women for the matter.
