Review: Faithgirlz: Brave Beauty Finding the Fearless You by:Lynn Cowell

 Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You
About the Book:
What will my life be like? Who will I be? Whether girls put these concerns into words or struggle anxiously with these thoughts, during this season of change, girls have questions. Sometimes these questions also come with fears and they need a safe place to process these fears. From Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and blogger, Lynn Cowell, comes Faithgirlz Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You. For girls 8-12, Brave Beauty brings tweens 100 courage-building moments to reflect on Scripture and find confidence in God, rather than in someone, some place, or some thing, as culture will all-too-soon tell them to. Lynn will also prepare girls to:


Overcome confidence-defeating thoughts and stand on who Jesus says she is.
Shape her self-worth on Christ and overcome the temptation base it on environmental factors.
Build a strong foundation to face the fickle and flippant opinions of others.
Find approval of herself even when she lacks the acceptance of others.
Find security by turning to Christ as she steps through the exciting, yet scary world of growing up
Formatted as theme-based mini chapters, these moments can be read as one-a-days, one-a-weeks, or at the reader’s own pace. Simple and empowering, Lynn’s voice is relatable and conversational, making it easy for girls to feel like they’re spending time with a friend. This inspirational read will be set as a gorgeously foil decorated hardcover, with beautifully formatted pages in line with the well-known and loved Faithgirlz look, and with an easy-reference index to look up any topic.


My Review:
 Young girls, these days have it so incredibly hard. They are forced to compete with the world around them. This is not how it should be. They have to be something they were not created to be just to feel like they have accomplished something in this life. They sell themselves and its heartbreaking. They are God's and God's alone and He loves them deeper and longer than ever imagined. They need people that will show them this and point them in that direction. HIS direction.

 In Brave Beauty, young preteen girls need positive reinforcement to push them harder and farther than they ever dreamed possible. This comes through the things we put into them. Brave Beauty is a way to get some goodness into them. Through a series of 100 different mini chapters your young daughter, grand daughter or friend will receive some good lessons from author, Lynn Cowell.

 Do It Scared, was my most favorite topic. It talks about be being scared but doing it anyway. Many times we are put in positions where God wants us to shine for His glory. Many times we fail just by not going through with it. But the author encourages us to do it afraid is better than not doing it at all.
