"Becoming God's True Woman"
Susan Hunt
Mary A. Kassian

Have you ever wondered why God made both Male and Female? Have you thought about His purpose for you as a female? Have you considered the fact that God has intentionally planned everything about your life? Yes, yes, and yes?!
Then, join Bible teachers Susan Hunt and Mary A. Kassian in this 35-day devotional digging deep into God's Word, hearing what He says about your womanhood, and learning how to  live as a "true woman" day by day. Each day begins with a short devotion and then A Time For You section -- a time for you to read...to think..to pray...to live for God's glory Interspersed throughout are personal stories and thoughts from girls like you.
What you spend your time with and allow your mind to dwell on will be displayed in your life. Girls need to realize that they should only spend their time enjoying the words, sounds and images they want to become. (Allison, age 17)
The media encourages girls to be loud and bossy. In shows, the quiet girl is always picked on and ridiculed. (Connie Jean, age 13)
Modesty to me is beauty. It outwardly symbolizes what Christ has done to our hearts-made them new, clean and worthy of coming into God's presence . . . that's what modesty is about. (RuthAnne, age 17)

This book is a devotional book written for teens, but I enjoyed reading it and I'm well into my twenties.  

I liked how the book started at the beginning (Genesis) and wrote about the importance of the 2 genders God created.  We are both equal and both different, which is exactly how God wants it!  It's a wonderful thing to be a woman.  God knew what He was doing when He created everything and this book reminds us of that.  

Each lesson was very helpful.  There are many different topics in this book like:  accepting our role as women; purity; modesty; attitude etc.  

A couple things I didn't like was they used tons of different "bibles" when the King James Bible would have been better.  Also, the catechisms weren't necessary.  

I did like the testimonies that were shared throughout the book.  I think it's wonderful that these teenage girls have decided to follow Jesus in their dress and purity and being who He created them to be.
