Product description

The longing for "true love" can be all-consuming for many Christian girls, so much so that it even takes the place of God in their hearts! This book helps young women to become so lost in God that guys come a distant second. A great way to find true fulfilment, and to put "romance" in its right place.

Author information

Dannah Gresh, a mother/daughter communication coach, has sold well over three quarters of a million copies of her books including And the Bride Wore White and 2008's best-selling CBA youth book, Lies Young Women Believe (coauthored with Nancy Leigh DeMoss) - making her one of the most successful Christian authors targeting teens and preteens. With the belief that today's culture has been seeking to rob little girls of their innocence, Dannah has been fighting on the front lines to protect them. Her fun line of Secret Keeper Girl mom/preteen daughter connecting resources and live events that tour the country provide moms with just the right tools to fight back. She has long been at the forefront of the movement to encourage both tweens and teens to pursue purity and is often called upon to defend the conservative position of abstinence in national news media like USA Today, Time, Chicago Tribune, and Women's Wear Daily. She is also a frequent contributor to FamilyLife Today, Midday Connection, and Focus on the Family. Dannah lives in State College, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Bob, and their children, Robby, Lexi, and Autumn, whom the family adopted from China in 2007. She and her husband founded Grace Prep, a new model in Christian high school education, which Bob administrates. She is shamelessly in love with her labradoodle, Stormie. (DannahGresh.com)

Review quote

Praise for "Get Lost""So many girls who are longing to be loved are looking in all the wrong places to be filled. "Get Lost" reaches into those searching hearts, pulls out deepest longings, and whispers brave truths about a feminine heart's inherent search for love. Dannah Gresh tenderly reveals how to discover faith-filled contentment that will last a lifetime. "Get Lost" is a generational game changer!""--Tracey Eyster, author of Be the Mom and founder of momlifetoday.com""Confusing our desire for God's love with a desire for a man's love is easy to do. Dannah helps us understand God's created design for this love craving, how we should respond, and what a true God-honoring relationship looks like. Her refreshing honesty and transparency reflect an authentic desire for Him. Dannah is wise and a worthy guide to follow.""--Barbara Rainey, cofounder of FamilyLife Today""For every girl who has been in relationship after relationship and lost herself somewhere along the way... For every girl who has lost hope that God's best is really out there when it comes to love... For every girl who has lost something precious and found heartbreak, hurt, and disappointment... "Get Lost" is for you. So much more than a Christian how-to guide for love, this book will change the trajectory of your heart by moving you from boy crazy to God crazy. Every girl needs to grab a copy and get lost in the wise guidance and biblical love story Dannah weaves so well.""--Erin Davis, author of the One Girl series""This is not just another 'find your man' book for young women. In this compelling read, Dannah Gresh effectively shows young women how to be lost in God first, so that if God then calls them to relationship, they will be far more able to love their man well. Dannah, you are a treasure, and so is this book!""--Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only and For Young Women Only""With transparency, winsome imagery, and wisdom, Dannah Gresh tells it as it is. We want boys more than we want God, yet only when we focus on His love, His life, do we find the fulfillment we seek. I got lost in the pages, and I can't wait to share this book with the young women in my life. Getting lost "in" God is a message worth proclaiming!""--Tricia Goyer, best-selling author of Life Interrupted: The Scoop on Being a Young Mom""I can't wait to get this book in the hands of every young woman I know. Dannah not only points out the dead end of trusting in a guy for fulfillment; she practically shows you how tp make Jesus the One your heart adores.""--Juli Slattery, psychologist, author, and cofounder of Authentic Intimacy""This is one of those books that I learned from as I read but feel like I'll return to and learn from over and over as the truths continue to digest into my soul. Dannah is easy to read and feels like a trusted friend.""--Annie Downs, author of Perfectly Unique"
