Brave Beauty: Finding the Fearless You is a devotional book by Lynn Cowell of the Proverbs 31 Ministries speaking and writing team. It is designed for girls ages 8 -12 and is broken into 100 “mini chapters” each with Scripture, personal anecdotes and interactive activities (journaling/quizzes) and ending with a “courageous call” or prayer to God. I am currently going through this book with my 9 year old daughter and am loving the evening talks this brings about at bedtime, about her true worth in Jesus, about what is going on with her friends or her own emotions. She LOVES the activities that include writing or quizzes, as she showed interest in a daily diary a couple months ago on her own. All in all, each mini chapter takes less than 5 minutes to complete. I am thankful for the Brave Beauty book as it has become a nightly bridge between my daughter and her connection with God. The fact that I get to share it, too, is absolute bonus.
Being brave is a great mandate for our girls, am I right? If you’ve got daughters in the tween ages, I definitely recommend this book.
I received an advance copy of Brave Beauty in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed, however, are my own.
