I enjoyed this book very much, but unfortunately it became somewhat repetitive, and hard to follow. I felt as if the God Girl that Hayley was painting was barely impossible to be, and the expectations were too great. I love books that convey the message of totally relying on God to change us and direct us into His right path, and not us relying on our strength. I found that this book partially quenched my thirst of becoming a girl after God's own heart... All in all this was a great book, contai...
I am a youth leader in my churches youth ministry and as a group we went trough Gid Guy and God Girl together and I have to say this study was amazing!!! This was chosen primarily for the teens and by the end of the study I think all of the female youth leaders went out and bought this book. The Demarco family has been given this wonderful perspective on what it takes to be this powerhouse for God. The most amazing thing about this book is that at face value the concepts seem so basic, however I...
I love reading books on Christian living, and when I found this one it looked okay, so I decided to give it a try. It turns out I loved it! I was convicted of some areas in my life that I need to change, and I was encouraged greatly to keep walking with God. I would recommend this book to any Christian girl, but especially those that deal with depression. Unlike other books I've read, this book gave some really helpful truths to what causes depression, and the remedy for it. I will definitely be...
This wasn't a bad book, but I just felt that it wasn't helpful. It tells you a lot of generic or vague statements (e.g. God loves you no matter what) and it gave me very little consolation because I already knew these things, but it's just difficult to accept. I know God must love me, but I can't help but feel guilty that I sin and never learn. It's exhausting to always have to reassure yourself that God will forgive if you are sorry. I am sorry everyday. It really hurts my mental and emotional
I am sorry to everyone who loves books like these, but I hated it. My very first reaction was GAG. I am Christian and do believe in God, I am VERY Christian in fact. I just don't agree with all the things Hayley DiMarco has to say and how we should do things. I actually didn't WANT to read this book, but had to because of church. Thank you confirmation. Also, the book was a little...girly for me.~J
Life Changing. Would recommend it to every girl out there.
This book was purchased when I was about sixteen; I am now twenty-three. It took me seven years to pry open the pages of this book, for many reasons, but I am so glad I did. After reading the very first few chapters, I felt God calling me to a living a holier life. After reading the chapter about the God Girl and men, in particular, I began to notice patterns I saw in my own life, which needed to change for God's glory, and with His help. Overall, a great book. I am giving four stars instead of
This book is thought provoking as it relates aspects of the Christian faith to just about every area of a young woman's life. There are scriptures mentioned throughout the book to go along with each particular topic. The only issue I could see that could lose a reader's interest is that the standards for Christian living described in the book may come off as being impossible to follow. However, each section provides some steps/actions readers can take to make changes in their lives, so it makes
I felt like the author of this book was extremely judge mental, and spoke as if she was God. I wanted to stick with it because there were a few tidbits that I liked, until I got to page 332. One of her phrases said everything bad in your life is a result of sin. This was extremely disappointing to read, because God does not punish us, God loves us unconditionally. Everything bad happens for a reason, yes this is true, but everything bad does not happen as a result of a sin. I have thrown this bo...
For any teen girl new to faith or struggling to learn more about her Heavenly Father, God Girl: Becoming the Woman You're Meant to Be is an AMAZING place to start. Hayley DiMarco expertly addresses multiple challenges that girls struggle with in today's world. To do this, she explains how God fits into our lives in a clear, easily understandable, way. Short, sweet, and to the point, DiMarco's God Girl does not condemn or shame you in any way. Instead, it points you in the right direction on your...
Not a bad book. My only issues were that it was sometimes hard to follow and that some of the standards Hayley sets out for the God Girl are VERY difficult to handle. Though I'm a bit older than the girl this book is written for, it did teach me a bit. Would recommend using for older teenage girls (15-18).
Another birthday gift read to ensure all was good in giving it, and it was, a decent red with great challenging and encouraging material for the younger teenage female reader There is a male version of course.
I really enjoyed going through this book with my cousin. I had gotten this book when I was a kid but never actually got to do it myself. It was a really great inspiration to myself. This is a great book to have in your tool kit for getting refreshed and or starting a small Bible study with girls.
This book was amazing by far. It taught me how to be righteous with the Word of God and how important it is to study it as well. I loved the stories that Hayley included with her personal life and it really implies to mine as well. Amazing:)
this is a great book for teens and young adults but I enjoyed it a lot and bought the God Girl devotional after reading it.
Loved this book for young girls/women. Wish I would have had it at 13/14/15 years of age but there was still a lot of things that apply to my life. Look forward to checking out more of her writing!
It had a lot of good ideas but was somewhat harsh and in my opinion gives ideas that aren't necessarily accurate, but overall I liked it.
A real lifesaver! All girls/women should read it.
Music, sports, entertainment, and politics--from Hollywood to Washington there are prominent women making a mark on the world today. And a media-rich society chronicles their every move for fans to follow. But what does it mean to be a girl who follows God and not just the latest popular public figures? In God Girl, bestselling author and teen mentor Hayley DiMarco will help girls make sense of it all as she points them to who they are, who they are becoming, and who God made them to be. God Gir...
This one came through the ILL office and I happened to glance through it and was intrigued. When I got the book, I realized it was actually for a slightly younger audience than myself, but Hayley said she wrote it for teens and former teens and since I am in the later category I kept reading.I liked the insights Hayley provided, and I definately think she's teaching the right stuff. It just kinda gives a different perspective on common topics that all God Girl's need to deal with regardless of a...
This book changed my life for the better. It gives you a perspective of the traits that make up a girl who has a Christ centered life. Hayley DiMarco is great at writing this book in a way that you can connect to the tone and mood that it's written in. Overall it is the most encouraging book I've ever read because of the abundance of positivity throughout the book. You know the type of book that you never want to stop reading ? Well this is the book that once you start reading it you won't want
Very Inspiring. A very quick Read. Sometimes people forget when it comes to God and Jesus if you are religious or very religious. They will never leave your side no matter how badly you mess up in life or if you stray away from them, they will always be with you, helping you along the way. This book helped me realize that because I battled with that very thought for a long time. It's a very simple read but the message is powerfully clear. I would recommend this.
I would recommend this book because the author touches on stories from her past that a lot of youth girls and even grown women struggle with today... Such as self-image issues, loneliness, divorce, and so forth. The author shares her experiences of becoming a Christian and finding True happiness in Christ alone. I thought the author did a great job articulating how much God loves us-- His royal daughters. A great read for youth, teenagers, and women of any age.
3.5 stars. If there hadn't been so many typos I probably would have rated it 4 stars. I read this to see if it would be a good book to read with my daughter to help her grow as a Christian. It has some excellent suggestions but enough typos (hopefully they'll eventually fix them in the Kindle version w/o wiping out all my notes) that I think we'll most likely just go over everything I highlighted and made notes on rather than make her read the whole book.
I really loved this book. I read it a few years ago, but didn't really grasp it. I read it again recently and finished it changed. Hayley does kind of set the bar high, but you have to remember, you're not perfect. Nobody expects you to be. Hayley doesn't, she's just showing you the girl the Bible talks about. Just think, Proverbs 31 is a difficult thing to accomplish. Just do the best you can with it, it'll change you're life.
This book was absolutely amazing! It really did change my life and how I act. This books tells you how to be a girl of god and how she should act. Theres not really much I can say but its helps girl my age to get on the believing path of god, how to deal with your friends and family and much more. I suggest for girls my age to read it because it will make you a better person, no doubt about it.
I think God Girl by Hayley DiMarco is an amazing book. It showed me what a god girl should be like, and some tips to help become a god girl. As soon as I started reading it, it kind of inspired me, to change my ways and be a god girl.
Oh. My. Word. So amazing!!! Its really changing me from the inside out. I love the book and would recommend it for anyone. It will change your whole aspect of who you are and why you serve a God you may not know very well. Again, A-MAZ-ING.
Obviously geared toward a younger audience but as long as you can mentally replace "boys" with "men" and not get distracted by the emphasis on interactions with parents, this book still has valuable information for women of all ages.
This book was so helpful to me especially in my journey with God at the moment I was reading it. Now as a youth director, I have recommended this book to young girls that I have mentored and will continue to do so in the future.
