Just in time for Valentine’s Day! I’m excited to introduce you to Confessions of a Non-Barbie. In this, Kinda Wilson’s debut book, Kinda shares the feelings of many girls in their teens and twenties: Dating can be complicated! By taking on such issues as self-esteem, appearance, dating, breaking up, and being single, Kinda pairs humor and real-life situations to help girls know they are not alone. Confessions of a Non-Barbie reminds girls of their worth in God’s eyes, as a beautiful and unique child of the King, and helps empower and build to take a new look at this challenging time in life.

Kinda Wilson currently lives in Tulsa and is an instructor at Oklahoma State University, teaching classes ranging from leadership to organizational behavior. When not in the classroom, Kinda is traveling the country, speaking to young women, and challenging them to take a new look at relationships.

Don’t take our word for it, here’s response from readers:
