From the Back Cover

Modesty Is Power!

In the age of low-rise jeans, belly-button rings, and backless shirts, do you ask yourself these questions? 

Why can't I wear what everyone else is wearing? 

Times have changed, why can't I? 

Isn't it really the guy's problem if he's tempted?

I read Dannahs book a few days ago. I really loved it. As i watch girls in my class dress like hookers all the time, i see how horrible it is that they give away their body like that. I am a 14 year old girl, so I know what its like, and i think "Secret keeper" did a pretty good job of addressing the situation. This book, gives a new look at modesty and the deeper issues. I love how they used examples of christian rocks singers, because those women have to be up front about how they want to dress and follow God, and may young girls look up to them. I wish all my friends could own this book, but for now I will just have to let them borrow my copy.
An also recommended read from me would be "and the bride wore white" by Dannah Gresh.

This book is visually engaging with eye-catching colors and graphics--a wonderful, but compact and quick-to-read presentation on the subject of modesty from a Christian perspective. It presents a compelling case on the "whys" of dressing in a less revealing way. This little gem doesn't come across as preachy, but as one godly and lovely young woman sharing her wisdom and her struggles with teens. The photos inside serve as illustrations that being modest doesn't mean dressing like your grandmother. I highly recommend this and am ordering forty from the publisher to share with the teen girls I work with. Now does anyone know of a book that addresses the issues teen boys struggle with in an equally engaging way?

Format: Paperback
This book clearly and cleverly addresses the point with young women that modesty in dress and behavior is a choice worth making. With fun art, hip type fonts, and well-written tidbits of valuable information, it captivates the reader and gives her a desire to be more than she has been...to be a better woman.
I initially purchased this book for my daughter, and I preread it in one night. It was so good: the information is written in such a memorable way, and it applies to preteens through womanhood. (I'm 39.) I intend on buying copies for the preteen and teen girls in our church, because I wish I had known then what I know now.
Do not be at all discouraged with the small size of this book; good things come in small packages!

I thoroughly enjoyed both of the following books, And the Bride Wore White and Secret Keeper, by Dannah Gresh. As a youth minister, I have been searching for a book devoted entirely to modesty, and Secret Keeper was exactly what I needed. I believe that every Christian young lady should read this book. We live in an ever-changing society that does not promote modesty and chastidy. Our daughters are being taught that it is O.K. to show-off our bodies to everyone. However, Dannah Gresh teaches just the opposite. We are to "intoxicate" only one person--our husbands!
I really enjoyed the fact that she didn't tell the reader exactly what to wear; however, she pointed out what to cover up. Many other books that have dealt with this particular issue have "told" what clothing is exceptable and what is not. Dannah Gresh allows the reader to use her godly discretion in this area.
I would definitely recommend this book to any young lady.

Thank goodness there is someone out there writing books like this. We guys who are struggling with lust have a really hard time because we are surrounded by immodestly dressed girls. They need to know the effect they have on all men.
I only gave it four stars because I feel the author needed to make plain just what it is that guys are doing when they "check out" girls. As they say in "Every Young Man's Battle", guys are engaged in visual foreplay with the girls they are lusting after. They get aroused while looking and then bring up the memory of you later when they masturbate. It is not Dannah's style to write so bluntly, but girls need to know the truth about how they are being used when they dress revealingly.

Thank you Dannah Gresh for your fresh look on an important topic for our culture today. Kids today are bombarded with all kinds of messages about dress. There is so much confusion. Girls need to know that the God who create them, did so perfectly and no amount of make-up or fad clothing can make them anymore loved and adored in His eyes. They also need to know their choice of dress has so many consequences for themselves and those around them. I bought a copy of this to review for use at the crisis pregancy center I work at, because we have a sexual integrity progam for teens and we are always looking for good materials to offer the kids to help guide them to making sound choices in their lives. But I will be keeping a copy of this on my shelf for future use with my daughter because I want her to know being modest in dress and appearance is a healthy choice that will be a blessing to her for the rest of her life.

This book is so good. I wish that I could give it to every one of my friends. It introduces you to a new lifestyle full of integrity, an integrity you'll long for and a lifestyle that brings your worth away from your body, and into your character, who you really are. It brings value to being a woman - not as a body, but as a precious treasure.

This short book makes the point of why modesty is important, how its powerful & the author even tells stories about her own life, how she's failed and learned from her mistakes. Its a wonderful little book that encourages teenagers and young women to live for God through modesty. Its so encouraging. If you don't get the big deal about modesty, or want to be encouraged to be modest then this is the book for you. I highly recommend it for all women.
