Because true modesty is rooted in a deep appreciation for the body, A Beautiful Mystery shows pre–adolescent girls how God gives variety in beauty— different shapes, sizes, colors— and how modesty honors their bodies.
The themes of God’s goodness, body image, inner beauty, modesty, God’s design for marriage and, above all, the need for Christ are opened up from Scripture, while each chapter ends with A Clue to Chew On— a Bible verse for meditation. Illustrations from such classics as Mary Poppins and The Secret Garden, along with full–color pictures, help keep young girls engaged.
Heather Thieneman lives in Kentucky where she is a writer and a member of the Reformed Baptist Church of Louisville. She has a love for missions and missionaries which has taken her to many places around the world.
In A Beautiful Mystery, Heather addresses the topics of our bodies, modesty, and true beauty through the lens of Scripture. I found it helpful and was pointed to Christ repeatedly.
