On My Own Now: Straight Talk from the Proverbs for Young Christian Women who Want to Remain Pure, Debt-free and Regret-free by Donna Lee Schillinger
“If you could put one book into the hands of every young woman you know, this should be the book. And if she applied a fraction of the wisdom contained therein, she’d be spared a mountain of tears. This is an amazing book and I highly recommend it.”
Author, Becoming the Woman God Wants Me To Be: A 90-Day Guide to Living the Proverbs 31 Life
“On My Own Now is an entertaining, smart, and Biblically savvy friend for any girl to bring along when she leaves the nest. An excellent tool for parents to impart the love, support and wisdom their daughters need as they step into the adult world.”

Too Good to Be True
“Thoroughly readable and less ‘lecture-ish’ than similar books within the genre.”
“In this interesting and thought-provoking exploration of the book of Proverbs, Schillinger takes young women along a journey that will help them to make better, safer, and more sound decisions.”

“…fun, light, easy reading that will advise a little bird being gently shoving out of the nest on a cornucopia of life issues.”
“Whether you actually give this to the teen in your life, or just happen to leave it laying around where they’ll ‘accidentally’ find it and claim it, you can’t go wrong with this as another resource to teach your young woman the Biblical ideals and principles which will best lead her into the future.”

About the Book
On My Own Now is about strengthening young women’s faith and preventing the screw-ups that can brand us for life. Donna Lee Schillinger draws on her eclectic past as a rebellious youth, Peace Corps volunteer, social worker, single mother, court mediator and executive director of a home for single young mothers. She uses gender-reversed Proverbs with real-life applications to wave the red flag of caution for young women, warning against the pitfalls of a post-modern, sexually casual, consumer-is-king society that is indelibly scarring youth with cynicism, sexually transmitted diseases and bad credit. This compact collection of quirky vignettes is great for daily devotions, affirmations, confessions, benedictions and many other religious “tions,” all with the goal of keeping you on the yellow brick road. After all, you’re not in Kansas anymore – you’re on your own now.
