Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. Such untrue words. When Words Hurt is the first of five books portraying the struggles people often deal with as a result of the harsh words of others. Annette Lee skillfully portrays three families whose children experience disappointments and heartaches at the voice of someone else, usually an adult. The stories will exemplify God's presence in the least of them to bring about a change that will benefit not only the children but the adults as well. Readers will share their heartaches and celebrate with them as they share in the fulfillment of their desires. When Words Hurt is a perfect tool for teens and parents of teens to learn how to understand, appreciate, and follow the call to seek God first in their lives.
