Just what is "real stuff"?


It's all that stuff you have to deal with that can have you tripping all over yourself just trying to stay afloat. It's the basics: rules, rags (clothes), and relationships.

Between that guy in class who makes your head spin and parents who seem to have forgotten that your life is your life, things can get pretty rough. That's why Heather Jamison has written this survivor's guide--to help you survive!

Going straight to the Bible AND using her own experiences, Heather offers advice on life's essentials--rules, rags, and relationships. Her husband, Brian, and friend Henry Rogers chime in to offer a guy's perspective, and dish up just about everything you've wanted to know about the male mind.

Basically--life can be tough, but no one has to go solo!

"This book helps bring an invaluable focus for teens. It's written with a fresh perspective from someone who understands the diversity of teens."


"Real Stuff speaks straight to teen girls in a personal, sit-down-and-have-a-soda-and-we-can-talk kind of way. . . ."

--Katherine Armstrong
Age 13, San Antonio, TX

"Every teenage girl needs to know she is beautiful, that she is loved, and that her worth comes directly from above. That message comes through loud and clear in Real Stuff!"

--Joe White
President, Kanakuk Kamps

Review quote

"Heather Jamison wants to speak to teen girls in a down-to-earth-way. What is the Real Stuff in our lives? What are the basic rules for living life as a Christian teenager in today's world? Ms. Jamison communicates truth in a friendly, no-nonsense way that brings to mind someone sitting next to you having a conversation. . . .The tone of Real Stuff is casual and fun, and a study guide with questions is included at the end. This would be an excellent choice for youth groups or girls' Bible study discussions. The combination of someone's real-life experiences and biblical truth makes for an understandable lesson about life and living it right."-- (09/01/2006)
