Brave Girls: Beautiful You by Jennifer Gerelds

 What I'm Reading - Brave Girls beautiful you book review

Think back to middle school with me for a moment…

Did you ever struggle to see that real beauty is more about being yourself than being like everybody else?

Did you often forget that God designed you to be just the way you are?

Was it hard for you to see that God wants to show a unique kind of beauty through this world…through you?

Was it easy to remember that real beauty is becoming who God wants you to be?

If you connected with any of those questions, then perhaps your daughter is struggling with the same questions.  And I’ve got a book to help you walk through those struggles!

 

Brave Girls Beautiful You Book Review

Brave Girls: Beautiful You by Jennifer Geralds is a 90-day devotional written for juvenile girls (think middle school age).  This devotional is written through the eyes of Gracie, Hope and Glory, three Brave Girls who want to share their experience with becoming brave enough to love the skin you’re in. Whether your daughter is sporty, into glitz-and-glam, or more on the artsy side (or anything in-between), she will be able to connect with the writing in this devotional.

Here’s why I liked this devotional:

The message was clear. You are beautiful. Geralds will take your daughter through six main sections: beauty basics, radiant reflections, works of beauty, beautifully clothed, kingdom fitness, and creative beauty. Each section focuses on a different way in which to see yourself or the world around you through the lens of Jesus Christ and how that should affect the way in which you engage with your family, friends, church and community at large.

For any middle school girl, the book would be entertaining and educational at the same time. Geralds includes question and answer, mini quizzes, crosswords, and several action steps for the girls to take each day as they act upon what they have learned in their devotional for the day.

I would recommend this devotional to others. I definitely plan to walk through the devotional with my daughter when she’s the right age so we can go more in depth on each of the topics!
