It’s Time to Celebrate!

Do you know that feeling when you’ve been waiting for something exciting for a loooonnnng time, and the big day finally arrives? That’s the feeling our blog team has today!

For months we’ve kept the refresh of Lies Young Women Believe under wraps, and today is the day we get to unveil this beauty to the world. We’re so excited, we could do cartwheels! Because we know you will be excited, too, here’s the scoop.

What Is Lies Young Women Believe?

We know many of you are familiar with the book that this blog is named after, but some of you may not be. Originally released in 2008, the book was written by friends of the blog, Nancy (Leigh) DeMoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh. This blog was born soon after the book was released to keep the conversation going.

Lies Young Women Believe is a book dedicated to exploring the impact lies have on our lives and replacing them with God’s truth. So many of the words found in the book are timeless, yet the specific lies we see young women believing have shifted.

Enter the refresh . . .

What Is a Refresh?

Some of the content in the book needed to be modernized. (When was the last time you checked your MySpace or listened to music on your iPod? Yep, those references needed to go!) But we also saw the need to address some whopper lies more in-depth or more clearly. So a team of writers and editors spent months working with Nancy and Dannah to give the book a needed facelift. The end result is a better book with the same laser focus on obliterating lies.

Fun Freebies!

We love the readers of this blog! (We really, really do!) So we want to get God’s truth in your hands every way possible. This book is a great way to do that. We hope you will run (not walk!) to your nearest Christian bookstore, order a copy online, or download a copy and start identifying lies in your own life and replace them with God’s truth.

We’re so eager to get this book into your hands, we will be giving away a copy with every blog post in the month of February. Read and comment. It’s that simple. At the end of the month, we will pick a commenter from each post to receive a free copy of the book. Whoot!

More Good News!

As another fun way to celebrate, we are rolling out new designs for T-shirts and journals, designed by blog readers just like you! You’re going to love them! Each week in February you will get to see new designs and vote on your very favorite. Based on your top picks, we will have gear in our shop very soon!

We are so glad we get to celebrate this launch with you! Don’t miss a post all month long as we choose God’s truth together (and snag some fun freebies along the way).

Let the cartwheeling begin!

Much love,

Your Blog Team

I will keep my eye on it and look into it more when my paycheck rolls in. I am super excited about the little girl one coming out so I can do it with my little sister.

  • Jasmine

    It is so hard to tell the difference between what is truth and what is a lie. Sometimes a lie is more believable than the truth. I would love this book to will help me be able to differentiate between the two.

  • That’s so nice! A dear lady gave the book in 2008, I was 18 and it was a blessing for me, being a new Christian!!! Just the other day I was thinking how nice it would be to have a new version of it so I could read it with my group of younger girls 🙂 I’ll try to get it as soon as possible, and hope it´s translated to Spanish soon 🙂

  • La Princessa

    I’m super siked! I shared this book with so many friends that it never got back to me lol. I’ve been meaning to buy another one, but this is even better! Yay!

    I have read the old version and can only guess how great the new one will be. I like the shirt more that the journal but they are both very pretty. I’m so glad that you are continuing to update the book and the blog to meet all girls needs. I can’t wait to get a copy of this book. Thank you so much for all you do with the blog and the book. They mean more to me than I can ever express.

  • Ruthie

    I’m part of a study where we are currently going through the old LYWB, and half of the participants are all like “what’s MySpace?” Yes, it is adorable, but it’ll be nice having a ‘refreshed’ version!!

  • Abigail

    Man, this looks really interesting! I’ve been looking for new books to read 🙂

  • Alyssa Hupp

    This looks so good! I will definitely be buying!

  • Starr Coleman

    I read the unrevised edition, and I enjoyed the advice it had. The Bible verses in it totally fed me needed Truth.

    The lies we’ve been clinging to are hard to forget, unless we douse them with tons of Truth.

    If you have faced the consequences of acting on the lies, or are having trouble from heartbreak that you have faced, check this out. It’s inspired by Philippians 3: 13 & 14. Tell me if it helps you.

    “Forgetting What Lies Behind”

    p.s. that graphic tee up there looks super cute and I can’t wait to get one.

  • Becca<3

    So excited for this new version!

  • Elissa Davis

    I wish this had been available when I was a “young woman”! But maybe this could help me help my daughter

  • Jenny

    My friend and I went through LYWB with our teenage daughters last summer. I’d love to go through the updated book and have them invite their friends!

  • Paige

    How exciting! The t-shirt looks so cute! <3

  • Annette Turner

    How exciting; I had no idea there was a refresh being released! I just sent this book as a suggestion to one of our teachers of girls’ Bible at school to consider for spring curriculum this year. Yaay!

  • Shelby

    I am so blessed by this blog! God bless you all!!!

  • I absolutely love the new book design!! I really hope I win because I loved the original but I’d love to read the new advice y’all have.

  • Anonymous

    I have seen this book several times, but always to give to send the book to the buyer. I wish it was available when I was around 12. The journal is so cute & what great words. When I saw the shirt I thought of various things from the pain Jesus felt as He was being persecuted for our sins to pay a price that there is Nothing on earth that we can give to pay for God sending His Only Son to pay for the price on the cross or thorns we may face in our life.

  • Julie Flood Beebe

    How exciting! I think my niece would love a copy of the book. The t-shirt is so cute!!
