It has become very easy in today's world for females to gain a negative body image. Whether this comes from the media, their peers, or general assumptions they make on their own, it's typical to hear a female, regardless of age, state that they don't like their body. For teenagers, this problem is especially true. For Christian teens trying to live up to the expectations of Christ, it may seem to be a problem that's insurmountable. It's time that we combat that, and books like BODY, BEAUTY, BOYS help to teach us the right way to view ourselves.
This book contains eight main chapters for consideration: How Does a Girl Survive in a Barbie World?; Blurred Vision; Lies I Believed and the Truth That Set Me Free; A Portrait of Freedom; How to Worship God with Your Body; Accountability: Having a Friend and Being a Friend; God Wants to Use Your Past; and What Is Your Focus? Author Sarah Bragg uses practical wisdom, biblical passages, bible study questions, and a place to write down your answers to pointed questions to help you improve your body image.
Although BODY, BEAUTY, BOYS is definitely geared towards Christian teens, it's a book that all female teenagers would do well to take a look at. The knowledge it contains is perfect for everyone, and the facts and figures put forth in the book don't apply only to those of faith. This book would make a great gift for any teenager in your life, whether they're suffering from a negative body image or not.
