Face Time: Your Identity in a Selfie World by Kristen Hatton
Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Vine. By the time you read this, there will be new ways to engage with others on social media. It’s fun to be connected, but it’s also a lot of pressure isn’t it? Social media constantly reminds you what others are doing, how they look, and who they are with. As you check your accounts (all the time!) it can be easy to think you aren’t measuring up.
What if you don’t measure up? Do you cover it up with risky behavior, pack your calendar with more and more activities, crash diet, explore your sexuality, or experiment with cutting? It seems like other girls solve the problem in these ways, but they are still anxious, sad, and unsure of who they really are. Is there a better way to get comfortable in your own skin?
Face Time helps teen girls deal honestly and wisely with issues like body image, sex, dating, substance abuse, materialism, perfectionism, and comparison. Author Kristen Hatton, a trustworthy guide for teens, wants girls to have the deep security, value, worth, love, and acceptance they crave. But she points them in a different direction than they might expect. Instead of looking within, Hatton helps them to look up—to the one who made them and cares for them through all the ups and downs of their lives.
In this easy-to-read guide, Kristen Hatton takes girls on a step-by-step, hope-filled journey toward understanding who they are, who loves them, and how to live out of that love every day. Face Time is fun-to-read and engaging, using fictional but true-to-life narratives and clear biblical teaching to help girls learn to recognize lies and counter those with truth.
