Product Description

Tindell Baldwin’s words best describe her passion and this book:

“My heart is for teenage girls because my story is much like so many of theirs. I was just a girl who made a lot of mistakes. I was a girl who had sex before marriage and then had a broken heart. I was a girl who did drugs and drank to fill the void that was deep in my heart. I was a girl who was desperate to be popular. A girl who, like so many others, didn’t know the dark side of sin. So my aim is to reach teenage girls, and through an honest account of my darkest sins, show them what they are up against. My heart is that teens would hear my story and flee to Christ. My greatest desire is that God would be glorified above all else.”

Through a two-part journey (“Dark” and “Light”), Tindell details how she said goodbye to her family’s God and pursued popularity at all costs while climbing the social chain in high school. During a night of partying, she even encountered the man suspected of killing Natalee Holloway in Aruba. But God did not leave Tindell. The “Light” part of her story shows how she reconnected with God, changed her ways, and discovered abundant and real life through Christ.

I found this book amazing. It is absolutely what teenage girls need to hear. Her advice is spot on and explains why high school is so pivotal for girls. Reading this book made me feel like I needed to make changes but really excited me because I know that my story can end up just like hers.

"I want to write this book with the kind of utter honesty that makes people uncomfortable. That might sound weird but until we're brutally honest about important issues, we won't know how to tackle them." The author's hope is that teenage girls will learn from her mistakes before they have to make those same kinds of heartbreaking, sometimes life-threatening, mistakes themselves. It's a powerful story, an amazing testimony of God's grace, and it touched my heart. I recommend it for any teenage girl. But, not only that, I recommend it to any woman in general. I guarantee it will move you and resonate with you. The author is so sincere and real, unafraid of baring it all in the conviction that her story will change someone's life. We need more of that in this world.

I enjoy personal stories that I can relate to, that are honest and fulfilling, and teach the reader about life and God. It's all about testimony. Turning your difficulties and struggles into a beautiful book, is a gift from God.
