"Secret Keeper Girl: The Power of Modesty for Tweens is a colorful book for 8-12 year old girls. It contains fun and meaningful messages to strengthen the awkward years when they are experiencing new thoughts, ideas and images, as well as developing habits and morals.

The short messages of affirmation teach tweens how valuable they are, and when they stand up for their ideals and morals they are rooting themselves for healthy and productive adult years.

I’ve also read the Secret Keeper mother/daughter devotion book, and this is a great accompaniment to it.

The ‘secrets’ are important and the decorative pages and photos make the material fun and encouraging. This is a great book for young girls with a desire to be their best.
I received a complimentary copy from Moody Publishers.

"As the mother of an 11 year old girl, I was thrilled to get this book. This is a harsh world to grow up in as a young lady and this book guides girls in how to dress but also stresses the importance of seeing ourselves the way God sees us. This book is a great resource for not only girls in the “tween” age but was also a nice read for this 37 year old girl. I still find myself looking at my flaws with sadness or frustration and this book reminded me that true beauty comes from the inside.

Broken down into several “secrets” of true beauty and modesty, the book is easy and very fun to read. Each secret includes a biblical reference and Dannah Gresh really breaks each concept down in an easy to read, fun way that is relateable to young girls.

The book is full of colorful pictures and visual aids that make it very inviting and fun to read.

Gresh illustrates sin in a way that I have never seen before and it was a great way to analyze the “grey areas” of our lives (like the clothing we choose to wear). I also loved how Gresh emphasizes that we should be looking to glorify God and not ourselves, which more and more is the opposite of what the world tells us.

I highly, highly recommend this book to all girls, ages 8 and up. It would be a great book for mothers and daughters to read together. It would also make a great Bible study or Sunday School curriculum. This is such an important topic that doesn’t seem to be addressed enough.

I received this book from Moody Publishers to review.

"Previously published on Purely by Faith Reviews.

I was excited to discover this book! You know why? I own the whole Secret Keeper Girl Fiction Series series. Guess what? I still love them and read them somewhat often! :D
I had high expectations for this book and they were pretty much exceeded.
Being a teenager myself, and although I'm already quite modest with what I wear (which is pretty much t-shirts, boot-cut jeans, tennis shoes, etc), it was quite a refresher to read about modesty once again. Many girls these days seem to think that wearing something too short or too low is acceptable and attractive. Attractive to guys and the world, perhaps, but in general it's not acceptable to the Lord. This book helps young ladies strive to serve the Lord in what they wear, while providing some verses from the Bible and giving appropriate examples.

A quote from the book: "...I think it has a whole lot more to do with our hearts and why we choose our skirts, not how long it is."

I have to admit I misunderstood it at first and I thought it was saying something along the lines of "it doesn't matter how long the skirt is", but after thinking about it for a couple of minutes and reading further, it clicked. The heart helps choose why we wear certain clothing, no matter how long or short it is. If we're choosing to serve ourselves instead of the Lord, then we will wear clothing dishonoring to Him.

One thing this book helped me realize is that, although rather odd, I don't spend enough time taking care of myself, hence the "I only wear t-shirts and pants".

I totally recommend this book for young ladies 10 and older, although it might not hold an older teenager's interest since it is for tweens. It does have a brief mention of a bra from a scenario, but does not discuss anything about puberty. This would be a great start for your daughter/younger sister if the time has come to discuss modesty in an appropriate way.

I received this book from Moody Publishers Newsroom in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to give a positive one.

This review was written in my own words and opinions.
