Product Description

Because true modesty is rooted in a deep appreciation for the body and its beauty, A Beautiful Mystery shows pre-adolescent girls how God gives variety in beauty--- different shapes and sizes and colors--- and how modesty honors their bodies. Chapters such as The Case of the Ordinary Marvel and The Case of the Ridiculous Pig open up from Scripture the themes of God's goodness, body image, inner beauty, modesty, God's design for marriage and, above all, the need for Christ. Each chapter closes with A Clue to Chew On--- a verse from the Bible for additional meditating and journaling. Illustrations drawn from such familiar, yet varied, sources as nature, Mary Poppins, hymns, and The Secret Garden, along with vivid pictures and artwork on every page, help to keep young girls engaged.

In focusing on the principles behind modesty, A Beautiful Mystery stays away from specific rules so that you can fill in the standards of dress for your family. Likewise, sensitive subjects are touched on in a way that treasures your daughter's girlhood, leaving it to you to elaborate on the joys and wonders of the marriage relationship as you think appropriate. The opportunities for meaningful conversations are a great reason to read this book with your daughter!

Publisher's Description

Because true modesty is rooted in a deep appreciation for the body and its beauty, A Beautiful Mystery shows pre–adolescent girls how God gives variety in beauty— different shapes and sizes and colors— and how modesty honors their bodies.

Chapters such as The Case of the Ordinary Marvel and The Case of the Ridiculous Pig open up from Scripture the themes of God’s goodness, body image, inner beauty, modesty, God’s design for marriage and, above all, the need for Christ. Each chapter closes with A Clue to Chew On— a verse from the Bible for additional meditating and journaling.

Illustrations drawn from such familiar, yet varied, sources as nature, Mary Poppins, hymns, and The Secret Garden, along with vivid pictures and artwork on every page, help to keep young girls engaged.

In focusing on the principles behind modesty, A Beautiful Mystery stays away from specific rules so that you can fill in the standards of dress for your family. Likewise, sensitive subjects are touched on in a way that treasures your daughter’s girlhood, leaving it to you to elaborate on the joys and wonders of the marriage relationship as you think appropriate. The opportunities for meaningful conversations are a great reason to read this book with your daughter!

From the back cover:

Do you love mysteries? Do you enjoy how muddy footprints and stray hairs help you figure out the end of the story? Have you ever thought of yourself as a mystery? It’s true! Some mysteries are scary. Some are sad. But you are not a scary or sad mystery; you are a beautiful mystery. God made you beautiful because God loves beauty. He is the ultimate Beautiful Mystery.

But what does all this have to do with modesty? Ah– there’s a case that needs solving! So, put on your detective hat, grab your notebook and let’s start gathering clues. Where? In God’s Word, of course!

Editorial Reviews

Modesty, inner beauty and being clothed in Christ’s righteousness: These are important topics for young girls. Heather Thieneman’s book ‘A Beautiful Mystery’ is full of biblical reminders for pre–teens to take note of. It will be a helpful book. 

-- Carolyn Poon (Mother and homemaker, Singapore)

In A Beautiful Mystery, Heather addresses the topics of our bodies, modesty, and true beauty through the lens of Scripture. I found it helpful and was pointed to Christ repeatedly.
