Mean Girls

My mom bought me a book in like 5th grade from Family Christian Stores, and I started to read it... well since then I have read less than 50 pages of it :) oops... but I wanted to read it finally. So I started yesterday, at the beginning, I don't remember the part that I read over the course of 5 years (shocking I know... everyone should be able to remember that kind of thing) ;)

Anyways, the book is called "Mean Girls: Facing Your Inner Beauty Turned Beast". I read a part during seminar today that I wanted to put on here for you guys... and it is relatable to everyone, not just people with "mean girls".

"No matter what people call you, they can't change who you are. Only you and Christ can do that. If you choose to let others make you into their image, you lose - and you deny Christ, because He calls you to be made into His image, to 'put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator' (the apostale Paul's letter to the Colossions, chapter 3, verse 10). Christ died to set you free - free from the enemy, free from yourself and free from the Mean Girl. You might not be feeling it right now, but it's true: You are a child of the King, not the punch line of a bad joke. Don't let anyone convince you by the means things they say that you are less than a princess. If you want to know how to turn it around and be the girl you were made to be, find out what pleases your Father. Find out how he wants you to react."
