Book Overview


We live in the age of low-rise jeans, belly-button rings, and backless shirts. Many girls and young women today could not even define the word modesty, let alone tell you how to live it out. Teen girls often ask:

Why can't I wear what everyone else is wearing? My parents are hung up on their old sense of fashion.Times have changed, why can't I? Isn't is really the guy's problem if he is tempted?

a "must give" book

This book is visually engaging with eye-catching colors and graphics--a wonderful, but compact and quick-to-read presentation on the subject of modesty from a Christian perspective. It presents a compelling case on the "whys" of dressing in a less revealing way. This little gem doesn't come across as preachy, but as one godly and lovely young woman sharing her wisdom and her struggles with teens. The photos inside serve as illustrations that being modest doesn't mean dressing like your grandmother. I highly recommend this and am ordering forty from the publisher to share with the teen girls I work with. Now does anyone know of a book that addresses the issues teen boys struggle with in an equally engaging way?

It hits the mark!

This book clearly and cleverly addresses the point with young women that modesty in dress and behavior is a choice worth making. With fun art, hip type fonts, and well-written tidbits of valuable information, it captivates the reader and gives her a desire to be more than she has be a better woman.I initially purchased this book for my daughter, and I preread it in one night. It was so good: the information is written in such a memorable way, and it applies to preteens through womanhood. (I'm 39.) I intend on buying copies for the preteen and teen girls in our church, because I wish I had known then what I know now.Do not be at all discouraged with the small size of this book; good things come in small packages!

Attention to all young ladies!

I thoroughly enjoyed both of the following books, And the Bride Wore White and Secret Keeper, by Dannah Gresh. As a youth minister, I have been searching for a book devoted entirely to modesty, and Secret Keeper was exactly what I needed. I believe that every Christian young lady should read this book. We live in an ever-changing society that does not promote modesty and chastidy. Our daughters are being taught that it is O.K. to show-off our bodies to everyone. However, Dannah Gresh teaches just the opposite. We are to "intoxicate" only one person--our husbands! I really enjoyed the fact that she didn't tell the reader exactly what to wear; however, she pointed out what to cover up. Many other books that have dealt with this particular issue have "told" what clothing is exceptable and what is not. Dannah Gresh allows the reader to use her godly discretion in this area.I would definitely recommend this book to any young lady.


This book is so good. I wish that I could give it to every one of my friends. It introduces you to a new lifestyle full of integrity, an integrity you'll long for and a lifestyle that brings your worth away from your body, and into your character, who you really are. It brings value to being a woman - not as a body, but as a precious treasure.
