Having explored what it means physically, emotionally and theologically for girls to live on the threshold of adolescence, I turn to analysis of their faith lives in the next chapter. As an introduction, however, I am giving voice to Lucy who, in her struggles to articulate faith, demonstrated an ability to identify and discuss some quite sophisticated theological arguments. Lucy was one of the youngest girls in my sample and this analysis is of part of the conversation in our third meeting. My initial reaction to her contribution was dismissive as, in contrast to other girls’, it appeared to lack both coherence and substance. However, analysis of her ‘thick description’1 revealed a depth of insight into the nature of God, the world and humankind as she reflected on her experience of them. As I engage in the analysis, I suggest areas of alignment with theological argument from a variety of sources.
