"This book is simply stunning. Quite frankly I couldn't put it down. I laughed and I cried as I read and explored the areas of life which we grapple with as young women, on a daily basis. Rachel does an exceptional job of delving into the areas of body, mind, soul and strength with truth and honesty throughout. Woven through this book are relatable stories, both biblical and personal, and it's a beautiful reminder that we are not alone. I needed this book, and I am so grateful for it."
Grace Wheeler Youth For Christ National Evangelist
"Today I started reading Rachel Gardner‘s new book , ‘The Girl Deconstruction Project’. As a male, it’s an odd one to be reading. As a youth worker, it’s seeming more essential by the page."
Stephen Fenwick Youth Worker, Frimley Baptist Church
"This book is an absolute gift. It's no lightweight, superficial, heard-it-all-before take on womanhood but a powerful, deep, and compelling book that still manages to feel like a fun and life-giving conversation with an honest friend. I laughed, I cried, I furiously underlined, and found it a wrench to close its pages. I want every woman I know to read it, to drink in the fresh, biblical wisdom that Rachel has to share, to let go of the crippling misconceptions and to discover the joyful, hopeful truth of what it really means to be a woman."
Ali Martin Soul Survivor
"Reading Rachel's book is like chatting with your best friend - funny, familiar, and sometimes just what you need to hear! Practical and truth-full from cover to cover."
Charlotte Hendy Discipleship Co-ordinator, Girl's Brigade Ministries
The Girl De-construction Project
Rachel Gardner delivers a feisty yet gentle message for women and girls everywhere.
If Jesus is good news for women in every culture and every time, what does that good news look like for women today?
This book is an attempt to speak to and about women with kindness, truth and sass. It's for Christian women of all ages, confident or questioning gender norms, who want to experience their femininity as a powerful identity that they can define and re-define as they grow as disciples.
The Girl Deconstruction Project is part sledgehammer, part manifesto, and filled with personal stories, biblical insights and wisdom for living full, free and fierce.
Suitable for: 11-19 year old girls
