"This book is a MUST READ for anyone - moms, grandmoms, aunts, godmothers, and everyone else that is involved with raising and coming alongside of our younger generation of girls. I love Lynn Cowell's style of writing - it's almost as if she is there in the room speaking truth to your girl's heart on each & every page! We live in a world where young girls are looking for ways to "fit in" and "belong," exploring who they are and how their lives matter. The time is now to equip our young girls with who they are in Christ and how their lives matter for Kingdom purposes. I honestly wish this book was written many years ago, when I was a young girl. What a joy it would have been for me to walk through the journey of this book with my mom by my side. What a blessing it would have been to learn the message of this book at a tender young age, before being deceived by what the world had to offer. This book is life-changing, and I promise it will deepen the heartstrings between you & the younger girls in your life. Even more importantly, it will grow your girl's love for Jesus as she learns of & rests in His unconditional love for her! Highly recommend! " said.

" I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. As a mama to two girls, Lynn Cowell's latest book "Brave Beauty" is a must have resource for my daughters. I love Lynn's easy-going and relatable approach to devotion time. This book is highly recommended for other #girlmoms! " said.

" So thankful to get an ARC of this from Zonderkidz. It is a gorgeous book, and while it is meant for girls, the truth in it is applicable for all us women! I am so enjoying reading through this as a daily devotional and looking forward to sharing with my daughter when she is a bit older. This is the perfect gift book for the gal in your life--or yourself! " said.

" I love the content as a professional counselor who works with kids who struggle with fear and anxiety. This empowers them to truly be brave and I sometimes scary world. What's even more is my daughter who is 10 years old thanks not only is the book is beautiful but has continued to read it and she often start something and doesn't finish it. Finally the way it is set up it is easy to read in small pieces of time and use as a group study which I plan to do in our neighborhood this fall. " said.

"As a tween mom, I find it hard to find books that we can read and learn from together. Brave Beauty is geared toward 8-12 year olds but I enjoyed it as well. As moms, we too struggle with the same issues our girls do and fight to not show it. That's hard! I want to show my girl how to be brave. Because y'all, middle school is going to be tough, I know, and I want to equip her the best I can and show her how God sees her and that's what matters.

All in all, Brave Beauty is a devotional that I know we will reread over and over.
" said.

"This is such a great confidence boosting devotional book for girls of all ages! It's a devotional style book aimed at tweens but great for teens or younger girls too! It's important that our girls have their confidence rooted in someone/thing eternal (Christ!) and not something temporary and fluctuating of this world. With an attractive cover, and friendly language and layout - it's sure to be a hit with any young girl in your life! My ten year old daughter loved the Becoming Brave mini challenge points in each section. They gave her something to DO, an action point to focus on and practice." said.

"My Review of Brave Beauty

Sweet Encouragement for 'Tween Girls

Brave Beauty is so beautifully written. It's a wonderful devotional for 8-12 year old girls, but is written in a conversational style. Brave Beauty helps girls connect with God through journaling spaces, prayers and practical application. It's written to be a devotional companion and personal book for each girl, so they can have a record of their faith journey. Brave Beauty is a book that girls will turn to again and again.
Girls will enjoy devotional entries that encourage them to know God-who He is and how He can help them. They will also learn to depend on God, trusting Him to guide them. Girls will learn about what God says about them in His Word, and that whatever they are going through, matters to God. Looking at people throughout the Bible, girls will see how they faced difficult situations, and God took care of them.
I truly enjoyed Brave Beauty myself. I appreciate Lynn Cowell's friendly style, as a conversation between friends.
The truths and life principles contained in Brave Beauty are relevant to any age. Girls (and older girls, too!) will find that courage, confidence, and beauty are rooted in God. As girls know God more, they will understand how deeply He loves and cares about them; and because He does, they are brave, courageous, confident, and beautiful.
I very highly recommend Brave Beauty. I know the girls in my life will be blessed by it. I am ordering a copy for myself, too.

"About the Book:

What will my life be like? Who will I be? Whether girls put these concerns into words or struggle anxiously with these thoughts, during this season of change, girls have questions. Sometimes these questions also come with fears and they need a safe place to process these fears. From Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and blogger, Lynn Cowell, comes Faithgirlz Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You. For girls 8-12, Brave Beauty brings tweens 100 courage-building moments to reflect on Scripture and find confidence in God, rather than in someone, some place, or some thing, as culture will all-too-soon tell them to. Lynn will also prepare girls to:


Overcome confidence-defeating thoughts and stand on who Jesus says she is.
Shape her self-worth on Christ and overcome the temptation base it on environmental factors.
Build a strong foundation to face the fickle and flippant opinions of others.
Find approval of herself even when she lacks the acceptance of others.
Find security by turning to Christ as she steps through the exciting, yet scary world of growing up
Formatted as theme-based mini chapters, these moments can be read as one-a-days, one-a-weeks, or at the reader’s own pace. Simple and empowering, Lynn’s voice is relatable and conversational, making it easy for girls to feel like they’re spending time with a friend. This inspirational read will be set as a gorgeously foil decorated hardcover, with beautifully formatted pages in line with the well-known and loved Faithgirlz look, and with an easy-reference index to look up any topic.



My Review:

Young girls, these days have it so incredibly hard. They are forced to compete with the world around them. This is not how it should be. They have to be something they were not created to be just to feel like they have accomplished something in this life. They sell themselves and its heartbreaking. They are God's and God's alone and He loves them deeper and longer than ever imagined. They need people that will show them this and point them in that direction. HIS direction.


In Brave Beauty, young preteen girls need positive reinforcement to push them harder and farther than they ever dreamed possible. This comes through the things we put into them. Brave Beauty is a way to get some goodness into them. Through a series of 100 different mini chapters your young daughter, grand daughter or friend will receive some good lessons from author, Lynn Cowell.


Do It Scared, was my most favorite topic. It talks about be being scared but doing it anyway. Many times we are put in positions where God wants us to shine for His glory. Many times we fail just by not going through with it. But the author encourages us to do it afraid is better than not doing it at all.


**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.
