Emma Mae Jenkins, a young writer, has inspired many with the freedom she has to be herself–a dearly loved child of God. In her first book, Be Loved, she invites readers to join her on a journey of life-changing faith and the freedom that comes from knowing the love of God.
She chronicles her own high school journey through starting a new school, navigating the typical pressures of school work and sports, going to prom, and even homecoming. Emma Mae faced each new challenge with the confidence that God was with her and was going to make her uniquely useful in the place he had prepared for her.
For Emma Mae, it all starts with her relationship with Jesus. Because she knows she is loved by him, she is free to be herself and to live out her faith no matter what the cost. As a young, passionate, and intimate lover of Jesus, Emma Mae’s love for her Savior overflows unashamedly into her unconditional, fierce love for people.
Readers will experience the chain-breaking liberty of knowing the Lord’s presence and the freedom to be unique. This full-color, hardback book includes pictures from Emma Mae’s life, along with key Bible verses that God used to strengthen and guide her through the ups and downs of her high school years.
My first impression of Emma Mae Jenkins is that she is a girl full of joy. Her smile truly lights up her face and she really “lets her light shine”. As a mom of a 13 year old girl, I’m always looking for positive role models in this warped world that we live in…I’m thankful that I found this young lady.
This book is extremely pre-teen/teen friendly…the end papers are full of vibrant colored flowers and each page of the book has photographs. This is a very fun book to read.
Although the book is formatted in a fun way, the content is anything but “fluff”. Emma shares about her high school experience and discusses ways to share God’s love, prayer, being yourself, and so much more.
This is a girl that lives for Christ and not people. I highly recommend this book for the teen and pre-teen girl in your life. They will love it!
