This author is unrealistic given her own past as a Christian. Married 3 times, a child out of wedlock. Yes God forgives, but should she be authoring a book on modesty and purity? She is self centered and everything in her life is all about her. She will step on your head to get her name out there and not even think about it twice. She should have thought about social media before authoring a book on a subject she knows nothing about.
International Model, Rachel Lee Carter, speaks with girls on modesty in dress. She also interviews male and shares in her book what guys think about modesty in girls. What they are truly looking for when it comes time to choose a wife. She tells it like it is. She is honest and straight forward. She uses scripture and helps girls see what God's Word has to say about their dress too. This book is set up as a devotional type each chapter is covered over a period of 5 days. Carter speaks from experience. She shares how you can still dress nice and be modest while doing it. I will be using this book with my teen daughter this fall in our schooling. It is designed to use as a Bible Study. It is written simple and to the point. We need more brave souls to stand up for modesty in the fashion world today.
A copy of this book was provided by Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
Model Rachael Lee Carter shares her story and speaks from personal experience. She has worked with famous clients so she really knows what she is talking about when she discusses modesty. In the beginning of the book she dressed according to current fashion but faced some situations that changed her mind about the way she was dressing. Rachael comes with practical ideas on how to dress modestly and ways to use the pieces of clothing that is already in the closet. It was interesting to read the accounts of youth when they saw women dressed scantily and the feelings these men face as they battle this issue in their mind.
This information that the author presented is familiar with me. I attended Bible College and the professor discussed how the way women dress could affect men and their behaviour. I liked the way she uses Scripture to show what God thinks about the way women dress.
I have been thrilled recently to find so many fabulous Christian entertainment and resource ideas for tweens and teens. Fashioned by Faith is another great one!
In Fashioned, international model Rachel Lee Carter intermixes scripture, her own testimony, and the input of teen males, to create a vision for girls where modesty is easily the most beautiful option.
Fashioned chapters include Fashioned by Freedom, Fashioned for Faithfulness, Fashioned to Bear Fruit, and more. Each chapter concludes with several thought provoking questions and a prayer. The book ends with a 45-day Bible study. The questions and study would be perfect for self-reflection, mother-daughter talks, or a small group or girls book club.
I expect young readers will come away from this book with a clearer sense of who they'd like to be, a better understanding of the messages their choices send to others, and a greater respect for their responsibility in helping their male peers fight the good fight.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publisher for the purpose of providing my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
