We all get labeled. Sometimes in a good way; other times, not so much. But these labels don’t describe the real you–your TRUE IDENTITY. This book will help you think about what–and who–really defines you.

As you adventure into a life of greater independence, responsibility, and maturity, there is one thing you need to know: You are defined by your place in a greater plan than you can imagine. Not by society, your gender, your family background, or your friend group–but by Someone you can always count on.

Discover who you are meant to be and find the confidence to live out your true identity!

My thoughts:

This is a very important topic for teens. They are desperately trying to find their identity in this world. Honestly, even adults are. So this is a very timely book.

John starts with the basic foundation, our identity in Christ and how that is truly the foundation for everything else in life.

He tackles some tough topics, such as transgender and same-sex attraction. He handled it very well. My only complaint is I wish he might have talked about some the issues that lead to people believing they are transgender or gay. He didn’t touch on any underlying causes and I believe that plays a huge role in why kids are turning to these lifestyles. So, I was disappointed by that.

I did like how he handled the chapter on dating and that is one I for sure will be encouraging my daughter to read.

Overall, this is a very good book and I think important for our teens to be reading.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com or your favorite retailer.

A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.
