I really enjoyed reading this book. It had tons of great advice and tips from getting to know God, to help the people around you, the usual teen life, your own health, and every day stuff. This is the type of book you read periodically, I suppose. I started reading it about two months ago, picking my phone to read it from time to time, usually between other books I read. I would read five to ten chapters a day, and the next would be in another week.

There are tips like like to be confident about yourself, how gratifying it is to participate in missions with your Church, how cool it is to raise a chicken (bet you didn’t see that one coming!), to write letters and communicate in the old-fashioned way, to read books, watch classic movies, memorize scripture, etc.

Each chapter is a tip from one to maybe three pages tops, depending of the subject. These were written by Susie or Kristin where they shared personal stories and told the perks of doing the tip. After that, there would be maybe two or more verses from the bible that are related to the subject, and a note form the same author or the other one as an after thought.

Since I began going to Church recently, I’ve found this book very useful on this.. weird path where I have no idea what to do some times. I’m not much of a Bible reader, and the verses here have helped me a lot too. They’re encouraging, inspiring, and make, somehow, my faith grow. I’m a science chick, and there are times where I feel like doubting and other related stuff, but books like this one help a lot to guide you in a path that’ll bring you closer to God.

In general, a good read to girls out there to read from tie to time. You don’t have to follow all the tips, but they’re good.
