Book Review: Fashioned by Faith



Book Description:
Everyone knows that we live in a “skin-is-in” society, heavily driven by media and immodesty. So how does a young Christian woman reconcile a fashionable wardrobe with maintaining her integrity?



Written by international professional model Rachel Lee Carter, Fashioned by Faith offers a cutting-edge approach to the concept of beauty with a Biblical foundation that will attract moms and daughters alike. Readers will love hearing about Carter’s exciting story as she leads them on an engaging study that touches on a huge felt need for young women: real beauty has nothing to do with looks.

Offering three valuable perspectives—teen boys, a professional model, and God’s Word—Carter explains her standards of modesty in a way that will make readers acquire a specific understanding of the author’s wardrobe choices and the impact those choices can make on others. Readers will also learn to season their self-image with daily quiet time with God. A tour of Scripture will reveal the value of heart issues like modesty and why they’re important to God.

Never compromising her sense of style or her faith, every young lady can discover what it means to be Fashioned by Faith. Moms and girls will love this book!




My Review:
I began reviewing this book with my 2 oldest children (10 & 12 at the time).  I really appreciated the insights given from the 3 perspectives (teen boys, professional model, and most importantly the Bible!)  It was interesting to hear what my 12 year old son had to say on the topic of modesty too!

My daughter really enjoyed the Biblical foundation and the opportunity to discover for herself what God says about modesty.  This book gave her a great place to bring together her passion for fashion and for God, under the mentor-ship of a "Fashion Model".  This was great for me, as I am not a clothes horse!

My daughter and I were inspired to seek God first in our clothing choices.  In our culture you cannot be modest by accident - it is a choice that must be made every time you shop, dress and wear clothing.  Our body language must also match our modest clothing choices.  My son was challenged to think about modesty and appreciate it as a virtue in young ladies.

I enjoyed the easy-to-read style of writing and would recommend this to fellow moms.  In fact, I already have - I loaned it out last month!

Purchase a copy of "Fashioned by Faith" on Amazon.
