Prized!  Your Journey as His Daughter
by Noelle Toscano

Geared toward teenage girls, this book is real and relatable, honest yet light and easy to read.  With 8 chapters, it is the perfect book to gift to a teen or young woman.  

Written as a memoir of sorts, by an author the same age as me, I found myself drawn in and soon wandering through my own childhood and teen years right along with the writer.  Each chapter is filled with insight, biblical references and positive and uplifting thoughts and inspiration for younger readers as they encounter stories that are relevant today.  Through the eyes of a woman in her 30's who has been brave enough to look back seriously at her teen years and the ever present need to be "prized", readers find a common place to connect and discover God's desire for his daughters, especially through the tumultuous teen years.

Even readers past the target age can find meaning and encouragement in reading this book.  A great reminder for moms of teen girls as they try to muddle through those years with grace as well as a fantastic guide for the teens themselves.  Prized! Is a wonderful presentation of Christ's love for us as his daughters and leads readers to consider themselves through His eyes, as treasured, beautifully made creations who are more deeply loved and desired than fathomable.  A highly recommended book for all teen and young women!

I received a copy of this book for free to review through the Book Crash program.  I was in no way compensated for this review nor was I required to write a positive review.  All thoughts are completely my own.

You can find this book at Barnes and Noble or other booksellers nationwide.
