Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild
Kassian, Mary A.
"Girls today are growing up in a culture where "bad" has become the new "good." The glamorization of bad behavior among young women has become the new norm and left in its wake a tremendous amount of fall-out and misery. Mary has penned a handbook for reversing the tide of the girls-gone-wild trend and replacing it with a new rank of girls-gone-wise. I can't wait to recommend this book!"See All

"Mary Kassian will help you navigate the over-exposure we experience everyday to messages that call us to be anything but what God created us to be as women. Her message will make you wise to that, and hungry to be what God intended. I think this would be a great book for moms to read with their teen girls. Though Mary navigates critical world view issues and strong theology, she does it with a conversational and contemporary note in her writing voice. You'll never realize how hard you're thinking. It'll be too much fun!"See All

"Many women today are eager for mentors. While a book is never a substitute for a real, live mentor, this one does connect women everywhere to the wise counsel of Mary Kassian. And we should heed her winsome, culturally relevant, and biblically sound words in Girls Gone Wise. This book provides an accurate gauge of the current feminine perspective in western culture and contrasts it with the eternal wisdom found in Scripture. Easy-to-read, humble, humorous, and thoroughly sound, Girls Gone Wise is a book both long-time believers and new converts will benefit from reading. Highly recommended!"See All
author of Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World
"Mary Kassian speaks with rare insight, clarity, directness, and grace as she challenges the prevailing winds of our culture. She paints portraits of two contrasting kinds of women and sets forth a vision that calls women out of their dysfunction, pain, and deception, to walk in the light of God's redeeming truth and grace. This book is extremely important, timely, and needed -- I cannot think of any category of women (or men, for that matter) who could not benefit greatly from reading it and grappling with these critical issues. A "must-read" for women who desire to honor God with their lives and to influence others to do the same."See All

"Mary Kassian has done it again. With aplomb, grace, and wisdom, she sets the right course through some of the most treacherous and dangerous issues of our day. With just the right balance of truth and understanding, Mary calls girls and young women to a bold, strong, and biblical model of true womanhood -- an understanding that honors God and shows the world a counter-revolutionary model of genuine womanhood. When Mary Kassian writes a book, women can count on sound advice and biblical wisdom from a gracious friend."See All

"This is a wonderful book with amazing insight into the hearts of women (and men!) who feel pressured by today's "wild" culture -- and also deep, spiritual insight into the Bible's wisdom regarding the beauty of true womanhood as God created it to be."See All

Product Description: Girls have gone wild! And we're not just talking about someone from the romance novel or star from the latest hit movie. She's the girl next door, your best friend, or someone in your family. She may even be you.
That's because the longing, the thrill, and the fun is real. Very real.
Mary Kassian isn't naive to that. But she knows there's another side to it--the devastation and heartache being wild can bring. Her insights from Proverbs on the differences between a saucy, seductive Wild Thing and a smart, biblically-savvy Wise Thing is a must read. Every minute you spend here will help you--or someone you love--replace the emptiness and guilt of being wild with the power of living out God's spectacular design for women.
But be prepared. This isn't your grandmother's handbook on etiquette. It's God's Word powerfully unfolded by someone He's commissioned to speak the truth in love. You'll be captivated, challenged, and impassioned to be far more than the world's model of the perfect woman. You read this book and apply its principles and you'll become something your Heavenly Father and Friend has always intended you to be: A Girl Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild.
