Uncompromising: A Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


Ask any girl on the street what womanhood is about, and you'll get a blank stare in return. No one knows. Young women are devoid of vision beyond popularity, material wealth, a cute boyfriend or a dream career. Even in Christian circles, significant questions are often left unanswered: What's the point of purity? Modesty? Femininity? What's biblical womanhood?  Most of all, girls wonder at the longing in their souls for something greater.

Uncompromising:  A Heart Claimed By a Radical Love cuts straight to the heart of young womanhood. Rather than setting up rules, it pulls at the desire in every woman's heart to live a life of purpose, fully surrendered to His radical love.  Written in an edgy teen voice, Uncompromising is a collection of "field notes" from the author's own search for answers...and the story of how she stumbled upon the one Cause worth dying for.  Contains study questions for group or individual use.

About The Author:


HANNAH FARVER is a college student, writer, website blogger, speech and debate coach, and she has even been interviewed on ABC. She also embarked on a national conference tour for young women. Like most people her age she doesn't know exactly what the future holds, but for now she is planning on a career in media-and more writing, of course. She lives outside Dallas, Texas.

My Review:


What an incredible young woman! Do you know a young woman who needs encouragement to stand up and be the young woman that God has called her to be? Are you that young woman? If so, this is a book you MUST read!


This is a powerful read that will encourage young women to stand up for purity and modesty, and to develop a healthy self esteem that only God can give. Young Christian women (and non-Christian as well) experience so many pressures in today's world, and it is so refreshing to see a young woman like Hannah Farver come up and use the gifts God has given her to encourage and inspire woman all around the world. Not only through her book Uncompromising but also through social media like Facebook and her blog. The book is very easy to read and also includes resources like a study guide (perfect for individual and group study), a modesty checklist and a section called, "How Do I Know If I'm Ready For Marriage?". A very well rounded book, that will impact young women for many years to come. 


What I especially enjoyed about this book is that it is written from the perspective of a current young women, and that women reading this book are going to relate that much better. They will know that as much as our modesty is important, what is inside matters the most to God. We need to be uncompromising in our attitudes, actions, and lifestyles to have an honest and lasting impact on the world around us for God! 


A perfect gift idea for any young lady in your life, and a book that I not only highly recommend but give a huge thumbs up to!
