Review: The Lost Art of True Beauty by Leslie Ludy

Hello all! πŸ™‚ I just finished reading this book and WOW. 😍 This is a review that I wrote for Goodreads (trying out a new format for reviewing πŸ˜…):

The Lost Art of True Beauty: The Set-Apart Girl's Guide to Feminine GraceThe Lost Art of True Beauty: The Set-Apart Girl’s Guide to Feminine Grace by Leslie Ludy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A friend of mine gave this book to me for my birthday, and I enjoyed it so much! I think that this is a book that every woman, young or old, should read. It was very informative, telling how to exude a Christ-like femininity, not the femininity of the world. I wish I could give it more than five stars.

Leslie covers issues that many girls and women can relate to, such as peer pressure, fashion, eating disorders, body image, forgiveness, and even creating a Christ-like atmosphere in your home, room, or wherever you live. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Along with the quotes on the quote page, these quotes had an impact on me:

β€œThe temptations of the world must not be looked at, listened to, or entertained even for the slightest moment.”

β€œShe feels emotion at greater levels, but she is not a slave to her feelings.”

β€œIf we live in a sloppy, disorganized environment with clothes strewn all over the floor and dishes piled in the sink, we are likely to feel chaotic, scattered, and sloppy as we go about our daily tasks.”

β€œThe more you mull over it [an offense], and go over the scene in your mind, the more it has an opportunity to take root within your soul and plant deep seeds of bitterness.”

β€œHowever, though we are not to accept harassment from the enemy, we can still thank God for the opportunity to learn how to fight, pray, and be strengthened in our faith – just as it says in James 1.”

    • πŸ˜€ If you do, I’d love to know what you think!

      Thank you! ❀

      I have two more books by her that I plan to read soon. One is "Authentic Beauty," another book I got for my birthday, and the other is written by her and her husband called "When Dreams Come True," which I've had for a while. They both look promising as well. πŸ™‚
