Fashioned By Faith: A Review

Rachel Carter
Thomas Nelson

My Thoughts: Fashioned by Faith is a Christian living book about modesty and true beauty. Written by Rachel Lee Carter, an international model, Fashion of Faith discusses how to dress modestly in order to portray the right image to others. Rachel Carter modeled for famous designers, and took her stand early in her career that she would not model lingerie, alcohol, cigarettes and immodest clothing.

Each chapter begins with a short section entitled "he says" which gives a boy's point of view about modesty. Then, the chapter details such topics as Fashioned by Freedom, by Forgiveness, by Favor, by Faithfulness, to be Feminine, for a Frame, to Bear Fruit, to Follow Through, and Forever. At the conclusion of each chapter there are Bible Verses and questions to answer. At the back of the book, there's also a quick-to-do 45-day Bible study on the same topics.

Fashioned by Faith is a valuable resource for every teenage girl, every mom, or any woman should read. We need to teach girls that you don't have to dress a certain way to feel beautiful.

Publishers Synopsis: Everyone knows that we live in a "skin-is-in" society, heavily driven by media and immodesty. So how does a young Christian woman reconcile a fashionable wardrobe with maintaining her integrity?

Written by international professional model Rachel Lee Carter,Fashioned by Faith offers a cutting-edge approach to the concept of beauty with a Biblical foundation that will attract moms and daughters alike. Readers will love hearing about Carter's exciting story as she leads them on an engaging study that touches on a huge felt need for young women: real beauty has nothing to do with looks.

Offering three valuable perspectives-teen boys, a professional model, and God's Word-Carter explains her standards of modesty in a way that will make readers acquire a specific understanding of the author's wardrobe choices and the impact those choices can make on others. Readers will also learn to season their self-image with daily quiet time with God. A tour of Scripture will reveal the value of heart issues like modesty and why they're important to God.

Never compromising her sense of style or her faith, every young lady can discover what it means to be Fashioned by Faith. Moms and girls will love this book!
