Meant to be Modest-A Book Review & Giveaway

I recently received the book, Meant to be Modest by Nicole Crone to review. Nicole blogs at Children Are a Blessing.

I heard about her upcoming book while perusing her blog. Since I liked what I saw on the blog, I subscribed to receive updates and also sent her a message to see if she was looking for people to review her book. Modesty is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. Since we have so many daughters, it is something that we have studied for a long time and I'm always interested in what others have to say on the topic.

I have to say that I truly enjoyed reading this book. It is short so it was an easy read. Even in my busy schedule, I was able to finish it in just a few days. I liked that there were thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter. She doesn't state her opinion and say that it is the only way. She stresses that modesty is going to look slightly different to each woman based on her convictions from the Lord.

She had me right from the beginning when she states in the introduction, "Our worth is found in Christ alone, and not in our outward appearance, like the world would like for us to so desperately believe."

This is the importance of modesty! Not only does a woman's lack of modesty mean that she doesn't have worth, but it also shows that we need to seek our approval from God and not man.

While most of what I read was not new to me (remember, I have been studying the issue of modesty for many years), she did introduce me to an thought that I hadn't thought before. Chapter 4 is on an "aha" moment she had herself while studying scripture and it is very thought provoking.

She also has insight on other scripture that I hadn't related to the issue of modesty before, but it all makes sense. I like how she digs deep into scripture and even into the original Greek words and their meanings. This all shows that she takes the issue of modesty seriously and hasn't just followed a crowd and its beliefs.

I will be having each of my girls read this for sure when they become teenagers. I may even choose to have my son read it some day.

Now, something exciting for you! She gave me a copy to give away!
