True Freedom is the power to do what God wants you to do.

“Beautiful girls are worth more.”

“I need a boyfriend.”

“The benefits of constant media use outweigh the harm.”

Lies young women believe can lead to depression, anxiety, relationship problems and obsession with social media. Those are all signs that a young woman may be suffering the effects of believing lives. But Jesus promised that “the Truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

Through a nationwide survey and in-depth discussion groups, Nancy and Dannah have listened carefully to young women to learn what lies they are believing. This book is the result of those conversations: 25 of the most commonly believed lies, along with the Truth that can set girls free.

The Lies Young Women Believe Study Guide is designed for individuals and small groups, featuring chapter overviews, daily personal study helps, and engaging questions.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh have been friends for over a decade. Dannah is happiest when on her hobby farm with a menagerie of animals including peacocks, llamas, and fainting goats. Nancy prefers working on puzzles of animals rather than working with animals themselves. Though Nancy is several years older, she married her Robert just a few years ago. Dannah has been married to her Robert (who goes by Bob) for a few decades. But despite their different hobbies and husbands (and heights and hair color), these two friends share a lot in common. Most importantly, they are passionate about loving Jesus and seeing His Truth set young women free!
