Is your tween prepared for what’s ahead? Do you want help talking to your tween about her worth and dressing with dignity?
This True Girl series exists to bring moms and daughters together for age-appropriate, biblical conversations about true beauty, modesty, and purity.
It used to be that middle school was the time to talk to kids about topics like body image. Unfortunately, the at-risk demographic for distorted views on the body is now girls ages 8–10.
The boxed set includes True Girl Mom-Daughter Devos and True Girl: Discover the Secrets of True Beauty. Together they cement the truths of that book and provide an opportunity for moms to talk through these important issues with their daughters. It’s not just a book, but a connecting experience for mothers and daughters. Together they’ll go on a journey to meet with their Creator and learn to see themselves through His eyes.
True Girl: Discover the Secrets of True Beauty is geared to helping tween girls understand their dignity in Christ. It features a creative self-help text format that includes sidebars, quizzes, games, exploded quotes, and graphics to help them absorb the message. Our girls aren’t meant to grapple with body image issues alone. This set helps you guide her strategically through the conversation.
The True Girl Mom-Daughter Devos has a simple format of 30 daily devotions. It features:
Here’s what author Dannah Gresh has to say about the motivation behind the book: “My past fifteen years of studying at-risk teen and tween behavior has over and over again led me to good news: girls who are exposed to an age-appropriate, Bible-based understanding of beauty and fashion between the ages of 8-12 tend to be less likely to engage in early sexual activity or have body image issues. They are also more likely to have healthy friendships, excel academically, and become positive social contributors in their communities, all while expressing their beauty and value appropriately.
“It’s not rocket science. It is social science paired with a whole lot of prayer and Bible study. We can change what tween girls see when they look in the mirror by changing what’s inside their hearts.”
This is the heart behind True Girl: Discover the Secrets of True Beauty: a desire to teach tween girls how valuable they are and how to honor their God-given dignity. Ultimately, it’s about grounding girls in their identity in Christ so the tumultuous teen years don’t uproot them.
