Is your tween prepared for what’s ahead?

It used to be that middle school was the time to talk to kids about topics like modesty and body image. Unfortunately, the at-risk demographic for distorted views on the body is now girls ages 8–10. Fortunately, Dannah Gresh has provided a resource for this need.

True Girl is geared to helping tween girls understand their dignity in Christ. It features a creative self-help text format that includes sidebars, quizzes, games, exploded quotes, and graphics to help them absorb the message.

Here’s what author Dannah Gresh has to say about the motivation behind the book: “My past fifteen years of studying at-risk teen and tween behavior has over and over again led me to good news: girls who are exposed to an age-appropriate, Bible-based understanding of beauty and fashion between the ages of 8-12 tend to be less likely to engage in early sexual activity or have body image issues. They are also more likely to have healthy friendships, excel academically, and become positive social contributors in their com­munities, all while expressing their beauty and value appropriately.

"It’s not rocket science. It is social science paired with a whole lot of prayer and Bible study. We can change what tween girls see when they look in the mirror by changing what's inside their hearts.”

This is the heart behind True Girl:a desire to teach tween girls how valuable they are and how to honor their God-given dignity. Ultimately, it’s about grounding girls in their identity in Christ so the tumultuous teen years don’t uproot them. 

This book pairs with True Girl Mom-Daughter Devos, allowing moms a helpful resource for walking through this formative time with their tween girl.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Secret Keeper Girl (for tweens)

What a relief as a mom to find a book on modesty that I know my daughters will

love! Dannah’s funny examples and BFF tone will make this an easy read for your

tween. It will equip you to have conversations, not confrontations, about hot topics

like mini-skirts. Don’t let culture dictate what is beautiful to your daughters. Have

them read Dannah’s book instead.


Speaker and author of 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom


Dannah Gresh has always captured the heart and attention of my four daughters

and me. Now with Secret Keeper Girl: The Power of Modesty for Tweens she does

it again by showing girls that true beauty is based on a lifestyle and not their

outfits! This resource speaks the language of younger girls, reaches their hearts,

and helps them to understand a truth that will impact their future.
