The Delicate Power of Modesty
A book full of tremendous truths for girls about the value, the wisdom, even the personal strength you build into your life, by modesty. Learn the unique beauty of being a girl who appeals to a worthy young man who will sense that he needs to “earn the right” to win you, because you’re not cheaply giving yourself away.
You know that girl who asks questions such as:
“Why can’t I wear what other girls wear?”, or
“Isn’t it just the guy’s problem if he’s tempted?”
Does she ever say to you:
“My parents seem ‘hung up’ on old fashions, and times have changed! This is a book that can change minds.
With today’s youth wanting to mimic the likes of Britney Spears with low-rise jeans, belly-button rings, backless shirts, and bare midriffs—immodesty is today’s fashion statement. It’s also sinful, says Gresh, but you can help your daughters learn the lost art—and power—of modesty. Discover the connection between external appearance and internal humility; and why God cares about every aspect of our lives, including clothes.
