9780830747849: Paperdoll: What Happens When an Ordinary Girl Meets an Extraordinary God

What happens when an ordinary girl finds the extraordinary love of God? By a well in Samarla, one girl found out when she came face to face with Jesus. Today' young women may be in a different culture, but they have something in common with that girl by the well: Sometimes they go looking for love in all the wrong places. Just as the Samaritan woman carried an empty jar to the well, they carry their empty, two-dimensional hearts, looking for one person, one more award, one glowing accolade, to fill it up and make it whole. True love is waiting at the well. In the eyes of the One, the woman at the well had infinite worth, meaning and purpose, and there's a secret waiting for girls who take the time to listen to what Jesus had to say to her that day: When an extraordinary girl fills up on the love of an extraordinary God, unforgettable things happen.

From the Back Cover:

Everywhere you turn, you are bombarded by them. Face after flawless face on magazine covers and on TV, all looking so glamorous and happy, like modern-day paperdolls. They seem to have no insecurities or self-image problems of any kind. Their lives are perfect, and the message they send is simple: If only you wore what they wear, or were as slimas they are, or if only you had all the great stuff that they have, then you would finally be fulfilled. But is that really what true beauty is all about? In Paperdoll, Natalie Lloyd shows what happened when an ordinary girl from Samaria, who was also looking for something real, came face to face with the One who could make her paper heart come alive with purpose. She carried an empty jar to that well, hoping to fill it with water, but she came away with her heart filled to the brim with the love she had been looking for her entire life. True love—the kind that makes you healthy and whole, as you are meant to be—is waiting at the well. If you feel like your life is flat and two-dimensional it’s time to let God fill you up with the kind of love that makes extraordinary things possible. You’ll never be ordinary again.
