Stasi Eldredge's book "Free to Be Me" helps teen girls become the young women God created them to be.
 
 
To be a girl is a glorious thing. Yes, we bear a suffering that guys do not know. This is not a reason to envy them or to curse ourselves. (By the way, you curse yourself when you say things like, “I hate my body; I hate my period; I hate hormones; I wish I were a guy.”) Healing here begins with blessing: 
 
I bless my body. I thank you, God, for making me a woman. I accept my body and my femininity as a gift. I bless these hormones inside me. I consecrate my feminine body to the Lord Jesus Christ; I consecrate my hormones to him. Jesus, come and bring grace and healing here. Speak peace to the storm within me just as you calmed the sea. Come and bless my femininity, and teach me to understand how you have made me and how to live with myself and the rhythms of my body.
