Dear Karen


I just wanted to thank you for your revision of Beautiful Girlhood. When I was growing up I think I read it at least seven times. It was just what my sisters and I needed to encourage us in the ways of God.
Thank you,
--Anna

Beautiful Girlhood
A review by Karen Andreola

There is a word of yesteryear seldom heard today. It is the word that represents what I desire my daughters to become. The word is “lady-like.” Reading Beautiful Girlhood brings back the charm and sentiment associated with this word. So when I found Beautiful Girlhood I was very happy. It was an old-fashioned book that held to the ideals I believed in and only needed a little revision. Firstly, I read and contemplated its pages for my own edification. Among such topics as building character, strength in obedience, making friends with books, a sunny disposition, modest dress, a pure heart and a consecrated life, are ideals any grown woman will find both convicting and comforting. When each daughter eventually approached the age of twelve I read its short chapters of gentle instruction aloud to her. It was our special time alone together. Later it was referred to by them in their silent reading.
   Beautiful and noble possibilities are present in every girl for becoming a godly woman, for becoming lady-like. Encouragement and counsel await those who read Beautiful Girlhood. For the girl who reads this book, may your blossoming into womanhood, your example of sincerity, purity, and love, be a source of happiness for yourself and a star of hope to other girls.
