“What’s Wrong With Me?”
It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves. Today’s age of everything-goes media messages and in-your-face sexuality has led to many teen girls grappling with self-esteem and self-worth. Author Daree Allen, MS guides girls through their young adulthood by teaching lessons shared from her own experiences in her debut offering, What’s Wrong With Me?: A Girl’s Book of Lessons Learned, Inspiration and Advice. She offers self-empowering building blocks designed to strengthen young women’s inner truths in the face of relationships with themselves, others, and God. Fundamental to the inner truths are the foundational blocks that allow them learn to love the skin they’re in, realize their dreams, and make a positive impact on the world.
In this part memoir-part self-help guide, Daree addresses the timeless issues most girls struggle with in adolescence, including:
- accepting body image and dressing appropriately
- handling feelings of inadequacy
- dating and premarital sex
- relating to family members
- understanding personal finance
- discovering life purpose
- respect and personal boundaries
The companion book, the What’s Wrong With Me? Reflections Journal digs deeper into the contemporary topics discussed in the book What’s Wrong With Me? that affect teen girls’ everyday lives. With interactive, thought-provoking workbook-style questions and fill-in-the-blank exercises, girls can openly and honestly record their thoughts and feelings to help them release tension and understand the world around them. The self-discovery, revelation and release will lead to profound fulfillment and start their own life-long practice of journaling.
