Are you obsessed? We can all feel that way at times--when all our thoughts, time, and energy are poured into something all-consuming. But for too many teen girls, obsession becomes a way of life.
In Obsessed, bestselling author Hayley DiMarco helps those girls leave behind the thoughts, actions, and stuff that so easily get between them and God. She challenges them to look at three key areas where it all tends to start:
obsession with losing (fear, worry, stress, busyness)
obsession with gaining (love, stuff, success)
obsession with numbing (addiction, cutting, eating, purging, controlling, comfort)
Obsessed helps girls to identify the unhealthy affections in their lives and points them to God to be set free from them. Life's pursuits aren't inherently bad, DiMarco reminds girls, but the level of devotion you give to them can make them bad for you. When you put God in his proper place, the other stuff goes to its proper place as well. And the result is a life rightly obsessed with God.
Hayley DiMarco is chief creative officer and founder of Hungry Planet, where she writes and creates cutting-edge books that connect with the post-modern mind.
