"Beauty and charm are in the eyes of the beholder." How correct this is when it's put in the context of how God feels about His children. This tender to the core, easy-to-grasp charm course is exactly what girls need to be ready for their lives ahead. It goes back to Christian basics and progresses the students to a well-rounded, well-grounded knowledge of who they are and how they can present themselves as models of God's beauty, charm, charisma, and dignity. Every girl and young lady you know needs to be introduced to The New Christian Charm Course through your church, athletic team, academic organization, Bible study, and everywhere girls frequent. My granddaughters and great-granddaughters can benefit from this course and share it with their children for generations to come. Oh, and I can even benefit from taking this course myself. I'm sure there are things I can learn anew."

"My wife, Christie, and I homeschool our 11 children (7 girls, 2 boys). We were excited to find out about The New Christian Charm Course. The course is a wonderful opportunity for girls to learn about what real beauty is. It is more than lessons on manners or etiquette. It properly focuses on following God and His wonderful wisdom in all areas of life. Girls will learn how their lives can radiate from hearts that love the Lord and desire to please Him above all else."
--Patrick and Christie Pettibon, parents, homeschoolers
"Jody and Angela did an amazing, creative work on this book. They communicate beautifully the practical steps that we girls' need throughout our lifetimes to be, look, and act charming--ultimately radiating a timeless beauty that can only come from God."
--Penny Crosson, author and cosmetologist, Daily Make-up with the Master
"The New Christian Charm Course demonstrates the authors' concern and care for young women. Along with directives for social, mental, emotional, and physical growth are directives for spiritual growth as well. Throughout this book, young women are taught to grow in Christ-like character, confidence, and charm. They are given guidance to improve their outside looks and their inside beauty. Both the Student book and Teacher's guide are easy to follow with active participation encouraged. This would be a real plus for girls in our Christian schools. It could easily be taught as an elective, an after-school Girls' Club,' or during lunch time. What a blessing if every girl could take this course!"
--Phyllis P. McCully, Ed.D., Association of Christian Schools International, Associate Regional Director
"I am very impressed and excited about your new book. It is so needed in today's society. Wow! Great job! Every media outlet promotes the view that a person's identity is valued by external factors, from clothes to makeup, from weight to hairstyle. Where are the solid, grounded teachings that promote the value of the inside of a person--especially a young teenager? How can kids today understand the beauty of charm and grace when nothing around them models such behavior? Finally there is a biblically-based, clear and concise course that is needed for every parent and child today: The New Christian Charm Course. This study includes books for both the teacher and the student that provide easy-to-follow tips, ideas, and effective tools that are missing in today's schools and in some homes. It's with great anticipation and hope for our youth that I eagerly support the messages of The New Christian Charm Course and sincerely believe that these teachings should reach the ends of the earth."

"Jody's experience as an educator and her heart to disciple teens gives The New Christian Charm Course exactly what it needs for today's tough times. It's practical, biblical, prayer based, and continually points girls to Jesus Christ. I have experience as a home school parent, a children's minister, later a school principal, and now as an adjunct professor to train teachers. I am excited to see all the ways The New Christian Charm Course can help girls."
--Joyce Eady Myers, M.A., Adjunct professor
"The subject matter of charm, beauty, and social graces is so necessary in today's world. I'm impressed with all the areas covered by The New Christian Charm Course, and by how the lessons tie to, and are supported by, Biblical teachings. The truth that outward beauty starts from one's heart--a heart devoted to the Lord--is a foundation for the entire course. I like that the course is one of Balanced Beauty,' covering such topics as make-up, fashion, and etiquette, and the more difficult aspects of charm' and social graces' of communication and confrontation. Each topic is presented in a variety of interesting ways, which makes the subject matter easy to learn and retain. I strongly recommend this timely course with its life-changing message for today's teens."
