Secret Keeper: The Delicate Power of Modesty by Dannah K. Gresh


We live in the age of low-rise jeans, belly-button rings, and backless shirts. Many girls and young women today could not even define the word modesty, let alone tell you how to live it out. Teen girls often ask: 

  • Why can't I wear what everyone else is wearing? 
  • My parents are hung up on their old sense of fashion.
  • Times have changed, why can't I? 
  • Isn't is really the guy's problem if he is tempted?

In a fresh and trusted voice, Dannah Gresh has a new message for them: modesty itself is a delicate yet formidable power. In Secret Keeper, she teaches that modesty not only issues a challenge for one man to romantically earn your virtue, but it also expresses your love for and obedience to God.

The book also includes The "Truth or Bare" Fashion Tests and Fashion Challenges that will resonate with teen girls.

I haven't read this book, but three cheers for the author! As a 16 year old girl, I totally agree that modesty is so important. Not only so guys can guard their thoughts, but so that young ladies and older alike can realize their true worth. That they are not some peice of meat, but beautiful and valuable without having to flaunt themselves. And any guy worth anything will realize that.

Gresh shares her opinions on modesty interspersed with commentary of fashions of today and historical trends in fashion. Throughout the book there are tests and activities for readers to do by themselves in the mirror or with a friend to assess the appropriateness of their clothing. When I received this book, I was a little surprised at the size of it. It was very short and small, so it was a very quick read. It reminded me of the American Girl handbooks. Visually, the font, pictures, and layout are very teen-friendly. I enjoyed reading this book and found the information to be relevant for today's females. The historical look at fashions was interesting, but I think there could have been even more fashion history, particularly of past trends that we now view as silly. The eight tests Gresh shares to help readers assess if their clothing is modest or not were helpful, especially if a girl doesn't have a mother or female role model to help guide her in appropriate clothing selection. I also appreciated her encouragement to get dad's reactions. Overall, I think this book is good. I didn't view it as a hard and fast rule book of what not to wear, but rather as a guidebook to help girls take a look at the message they are putting out there. If you have a daughter, check this book out and use it as a resource in communicating about a potentially sensitive topic. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Purity & modesty are not messages our teenagers hear. This is presented so well in this book and in a way teens can identify with. Although, the book is a bit expensive for how short it is.
