The principles in this book will help my daughter and yours grow to become true women of character, confidence, and substance. - Josh Shipp, Teen Behavior Expert& Host of Parental Guidance Today's world is full of so many clamoring voices that indoctrinate our young women to believe that they are not good enough unless they measure up to society's unrealistic definition of beauty and success.
