Have you ever thought of your mind as a battlefield?
Teen life can be persistent struggle with a constant battle raging in the mind. The most important fight you'll confront won't be in the halls of your chool, in a comment thread on the internet, at an after-prom party, or even in your family's living room. The most important fight will begin in your mind.
In Battlefield of the Mind for Teens you will take an honest look at what teenagers are facing every day. Peer pressure, expectations for your future, and the struggle for independence are just some of the issues. Solid research, interviews with young people, and no-nonsense biblically based advice empower Joyce Meyer to provide the ammo you need to make your brain a clean, mean, fighting machine.
This world is sometimes a difficult place. Joyce Meyer wants to make sure you win the battle for your brain—and she wants you to win big.
