Prized! Your Journey as His Daughter by Noelle Toscano

Noelle Toscano shares her emotional testimony of trials and discoveries in Prized!. Uplifting and honest about mistakes and consequences, the author candidly talks about finding that loving relationship with Jesus Christ and how to find security, belonging, and personal identity through Him.

A rewarding and thought provoking book, Noelle Toscano has written a devotional type book to encourage young girls to Be Not of This World.
