Secret Keeper Girl Review

Book Review: 

This is a little almost pocket sized book filled with some very helpful information for tweens. It's also got a fun, catchy looking cover as well as pictures and illustrations throughout the book that it make it fun and easy to read. It's been awhile since I've been a tween to know on the reading level, but the words are simple and easy to understand, so I think it is suitable for a young girl.

I think Dannah has hit on some very powerful truths in this book. Modesty isn't about being covered from head to toe as much as it is dressing to glorify God and not draw attention to ourselves. As a Mennonite, we have a style of dress to adhere to, but that doesn't guarantee modesty. I have seen our "modest" dress look much more immodest than someone in a skirt or even pants. There's so much attitude that goes into how we dress and who we seek to portray: God or ourselves.

Dannah offers seven truths to being a Secret Keeper Girl:
1. You are a masterpiece created by God
2. True beauty doesn't come from what's on the outside.
3. True beauty is not about how you look. It's about how you see.
4. God wants nothing we wear to distract people from seeing our true beauty.
5. What we wear becomes sin when it says, "look at me" instead of "look at God."
6. If you love God, you will obey Him in the way you dress.
7. The source of true beauty is a love relationship with Jesus!

Each truth has a chapter that's devoted to further developing and explaining that truth along with Scripture to use as power verses.

There is also a mom-daughter devotional available that goes along with this verse.

I think this would be a great book to give to a tween, though it would be even better to walk through the book with your tween.

I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
