This book is a beautiful summary of the book of Ephesians. I at first was worried that it would be geared more for teenage girls and not really apply to me (not a teenager),but I soon found out that I was wrong. My pink highlights and sticky notes all throughout the book are a witness that it is for anyone who has a hard time seeing how they fit into the beautiful image of God. It challenged and convicted me. I laughed and cried as I went through each chapter. It will inspire you to view yoursel ...more

Expectations: This book is small, has a pretty cover, and cost me $3 from the clearance shelf at Hobby Lobby. I read it fully expecting it to be decent but not noteworthy and to hand it to a younger friend of mine who might get more out of it after I was done. From my experience Christian nonfiction books geared specifically for an age group younger than 20 tend to be shallow and fail to connect and be relatable for the reader.

Reality: While this book acted more as a reminder for me than learni

I bought this book for my daughter, for us to read together. I had no idea that it would touch me so deeply as well. It is written for teen and young adult girls, but my oh my, no matter the age, the message is the same. Powerful. Impacting. Empowering. In a world telling girls who they should be, Priscilla Shirer uses her powerful voice and relatable humor to remind us who God says we are and who He made us to be.
This is a must read for all young girls, and even some of us older ones.

Most people have trouble understanding who we really are, especially who we are in Christ, who we are in God’s eyes. Instead we tend to listen to everyone else and blindly accept the labels that the world pins on us. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone would study the book of Ephesians and learn about their true identity?
Recently a new faith-based movie, Overcomer, directed by Alex Kendrick and produced by Stephen Kendrick released in theaters. Several books ‘inspired by the movie’ and geared towar

I am long past being a teen girl or young woman, but I got so much out of the book. I enjoy Priscilla Shirer's writing, and am beginning the study Defined (that accompanies the movie, Overcomer by the Kendricks). I wanted to read this as a quick summary to know what was ahead. I do disagree with Mrs Shirer about some details of theology - not just in this book, but in other studies of hers I have done. I find if I can look past those, her books offer so many valuable nuggets. I grow every time I ...more

In association with the newly-released film, "Overcomer" from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer wrote "Radiant", a book about finding identity in God for teen girls and young women.  Using examples from her life as a teenager, Shirer encourages young women to look for their identity in the pages of Scripture rather than social media and their peers.

She teaches young women how to be radiant with the love and joy of Christ and to use their uniqueness to serve God and reflect Him to the w

I bought this book for my daughter who is graduating from high school this year. I thought it would be a good graduation and "send-off" gift to remind her to look to God's guidance to find her way. It is that in many ways, but it might just not fit for my daughter in this particular year. It starts with a story of graduation...which we are not even sure is a possibility for her this year. There are many great passages and stories that could be very inspiring for her, but I'm not sure if she will ...more

I highly recommend this book for everyone! It may be written for girls but women and I believe boys and men can truly receive the “gift” that is this book and the words of “love” written by Priscilla Shirer.

Each page is like a huge hug from God, a Mother, Grandmother, Father, Grandfather and loving Friend. It radiates love and gives you a solid foundation for believing in yourself through God loving voice.

I can't love this enough. If you are, have, or even have been a teen or young adult woman, this is a beautiful dose of God's truth and love. Priscilla Shirer does an outstanding job sharing life and lessons that are relevant and relatable to today's growing ladies. It's real talk without the sting of condemnation and Biblically sound doctrine without complication. ...more

Great for Young Women

This is a great read for young woman especially under 21 or so; just really stepping into life. It touched on great things that women struggle with and if we can really get a hold of can make us stronger individually and collectively.

An incredibly necessary look at identity in a world where young women struggle to find it. Priscilla Shirer’s first book for a young adult audience does not disappoint, and is perfect to give to both Christian and unsaved girls alike.

Great book to encourage teenage girls or woman on their purpose in life. They are put here in this time and generation for a reason. They are given challenges in their life for a reason. Turn to god to guide your path. Very uplifting!

Really great book full of incredible truths that every girl should know. I read this as a 19 year old and would definitely say it’s aimed toward young teen girls. Will be giving to my sister!

Radiant is an excellent resource for young women’s Christian mentor and Bible study groups. This book is practical, relevant, and biblically sound.
