No one wants to be labeled a whiner, but many of us go through life with a "poor me," victim mentality that sounds a whole lot like whining. God never intended for us to act like "little girls," says Jan Silvious. His goal is for each of us to live as "big girls"-mature Christian women-who are capable of enjoying the richness of life He has planned.

In Big Girls Don't Whine, Jan helps women:

Move beyond the past and on to healthy relationships, Choose to be proactive rather than let life just "happen," Discover their full potential, And become everything He made them to be.

So how can we tell if we're living life as an immature 'little girl" or a confident "big girl?"

A little girl...

Is insecure Becomes the victim of circumstances Says "I can't" Manipulates

A big girl...

Is secure Rests in God's sovereignty Says, "I can" Communicates

In Big Girls Don't Whine, Jan Silvious calls us to be real women in a real world, free to experience a life of full of potential and vision. This book is the how-to manual for making it happen.
