We had the pleasure of reviewing Beauty in the Heart; A Study of Godly Beauty for Young Women from Doorposts. This 186 page study contains 86 days of study in addition to 45 extra studies given at the end of each study. It is recommended for girls ages 10-12 and up to use this study. While this study is primary written for young ladies it is also appropriate for young men too. In a few place you will see an * which indicates there are alternate questions in the back of the book for the boys.
Recommended materials include a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Nave’s Topical Bible and a King James translation Bible. Highlighters or colored pencils are needed for marking passages in the Bible.
This study includes 10 Chapter on Beauty:
Beauty in Submission
Beauty in the Heart
Beauty in Trusting God
Beauty in Humility
Beauty in Modesty
Beauty in Serving
Beauty without Discretion
Beauty in Crisis
Beauty in the Gates
Beauty in Review
Each chapter/study is set up for a 7 day week. In each study there are gray boxes in the side margin that give optional instructions. Each day’s study will take five to twenty minutes to complete. Younger students might need help with some of the lessons.
How we used this study: At first I gave Amber, age 12, the study to do independently, but by day three she had her first hiccup. In the instructions it tells you to mark certain words in your Bible a with a certain color marker, Amber had some trouble locating the words because she was using a different Bible translation. Once we figured that out it was a bit easier for her. Since our weekends tend to be more hectic, Amber used this study Monday through Fridays in the beginning of her school day.
Amber’s thoughts: While she enjoyed this study and plans to finish the book, she did think some of the questions repeated themselves. Also some of the reading was a bit too much in one sitting, she tended to get a bit bored rereading the same passages over and over again.
My thoughts: I thought this study is awesome and while it might be a bit much for Amber alone it makes for a perfect Mother Daughter Study!! We have had many great discussion after reading each day’s study. Beauty in the Heart; has helped this Mama explain to my preteen what the Bible has to say on Beauty. During this critical time in a young girls life, learning to express themselves with outward adornments and how the world views beauty; this study helps them to keep it all in perspective.
I would recommend this study for young ladies and again I think this is a perfect Mother-Daughter Study!!
