A Survivor's Guide
Just what is “real stuff”?
RULES • RAGS • RELATIONSHIPS
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. . . .”
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!”
President, Kanakuk Kamps
