God's Image-Bearers: Adolescent Girls and Young Women Building Self-Esteem through Healthy Relationships
Author

Abstract
Adolescent girls and young women should be taught, nurtured, and empowered to grow up knowing and living out their identity, worth and values as God's image- bearers. The lack of self esteem, self identity, and ethnic identity is evident today in the social and behavioral outcomes of girls. Biblical and theological framework is the imperative foundational value in human beings discovering who they are, who they belong to, who loves them, and how to live a reconciled life with God in this sinful world. In essence, positive self esteem comes first and foremost from healthy relationships with the creator and other humans.
