Book Review: Me, Myself And Lies For Young Women by Jennifer Rothchild

Book Review: Me, Myself And Lies For Young Women by Jennifer Rothchild

Book Details:

Title: Me, Myself, And Lies For Young Women

Author: Jennifer Rothchild

Publisher: Harvest House Publications

Publication Date: May 1st, 2017

Genre: Christian, Teens and Young Adult

I have received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review

My review:

I picked up this Me, Myself, And Lies For Young Women in my attempt to read more diverse books that are outside of my faith, and in some cases also outside of my comfort zone. But what I found instead was a universally gentle book on teaching young teens and women their personal value, no matter what faith.

Sure, there was a mentioning of the Bible, and references to the Scriptures, which is what I expected with a title from that genre, but it wasn’t pushy and in your face, as some other books with religious undertones I have read in the past.

The Author of Me, Myself And Lies For Young Women – Jennifer Rothchild, had a very firm grasp about how and what her target audience thinks, what they do, and which kind of world they live in – and that was refreshing. After just having finished a book that did not take the time to clearly identify with whom it was meant to serve, it was great to read a book from an Author who did understand the importance of that concept

I love the metaphors that were used throughout the book to describe the message, centering around “cleaning out and filling your closet” with positive values and thoughts.

Book Review: Me, Myself And Lies For Young Women by Jennifer Rothchild Click To Tweet

The exercises presented in the book – which would make good journal prompts for young women – were contemporary and not preachy, but uplifting and well-formed.

My favorite part was when she talked about labels, and stated that giving yourself positive and true labels are like wearing “designer labels”.

Quote: These are your designer labels, and they’re the look that really works for you. Go ahead and try them on. Then look in the mirror and see how great they look on you!”

I really enjoyed reading this book, as it was uplifting, gentle, and stayed true in message and voice, fitting perfectly for the intended target audience, with a message that transcends faith – the importance of self-confidence, self-value, and self-esteem.

Book Summary:

What Do You Say When You Talk to Yourself

Do the words you use when you talk to yourself ever sound like this?

I’m not pretty enough…

If only I was popular…

I’ll never be good enough…

Whether you say it out loud or in your head, words like these will tear you down as a teen girl and make you feel like you don’t matter.

The truth is, you do matter! And you can learn how to tell yourself the truth with powerful soul talk—telling yourself the words that God Himself would say to you.

With authenticity and wit, Jennifer Rothschild will help you

  • live with confidence
  • know what God’s Word says about you
  • feel comfortable in your own skin

As you replace lies with God’s truth, you’ll be free to live the beautiful life God has planned for you.

Jennifer Rothschild is a recovering perfectionist who has learned to live beyond limits ever since her life drastically changed at the age of fifteen, when she lost her sight. Now, more than 30 years later, she boldly and compassionately teaches women how to find contentment, walk with endurance, and celebrate the ordinary.

She’s the author of ten books, including the best-selling Lessons I Learned in the Dark, Self Talk, Soul Talk, the popular Me, Myself and Lies Bible study, and her soon to be released, God Is Just Not Fair.

As a speaker, author and accomplished singer-songwriter she travels internationally, offering fresh, sensible, Biblical advice to audiences who, like her, are determined to pursue healthy and fulfilling lives in spite of their circumstances.

Title: Lux and Lies
Author: Meg Collett
(Whitebird, #1)
Publication date: May 2nd, 2017
Genres: Science Fiction, Thriller, Young Adult

Mr. Robot meets UnReal in a story of celebrities and anarchists, reality shows and evil corporations, romance, and self-discovery.

Nineteen-year-old Wren Iver is nothing more than a dying girl with cancer, but when megastar Sloan Lux dies right before filming starts on the year’s most anticipated reality show, producers scramble to secretly replace her—with Wren. She’s swept into Hollywood and promised a cure by VidaCorp, the nation’s richest bioengineering corporation, for simply replacing Lux. It’s a deal Wren can’t refuse.

The decision could get her killed, because she isn’t the only cast member with ulterior motives

The Whitebirds, a social anarchist group, has infiltrated the show, and they’ll stop at nothing to use Sloane Lux’s fame to derail VidaCorp’s efforts to legalize their controversial, life-changing drug—a drug that might kill more people than it saves. Caught in the middle of a game between a powerful corporation and ruthless anarchist group, Wren will do anything to survive.

Will Wren secure the drug she needs to survive, or will she become another casualty in the anarchists’ fight against VidaCorp?

Title: Illusionary
Author: Desiree Williams
Publication date: April 4th, 2017
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult

Dorothy got sucked into a tornado.

Alice fell down a hole.

Wendy flew to Neverland.

Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.

Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.

Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.

No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.

Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.
