THE VILLAGE GIRL HANDBOOK 2 is full of fresh new stories that will remind you what it means to find courage and peace in the unlikeliest of situations. You might notice on the cover illustration that the girl (the reader) is a bit older. This wasn’t originally an intentional decision. I began to notice that a significant portion of the stories that came pouring in for this book had a weight to them that should be considered. Look for stories that talk about heavy topics such depression, self-injuring behavior, sexual purity and difficult loss. These stories, some heartbreaking, will touch and inspire the reader that God is an ever-present help in times of trouble.
You will be introduced to girls who are eager to let you in on the secret to surviving life's unfortunate catastrophes. They'll recount private pain they've experienced, sharing with you how they overcame. They'll let you in on a four letter word that packs a punch for any daunting circumstance...HOPE.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:4 NIV
