Of all the Christian books out there for girls, there are two that I think ever girl should read. Other than the bible, these books are the ones that have shaped my life the most. If you are looking for a devotional book or just want to grow in some areas of your life read these books. If you are a young girl, perhaps an uncertain teenager, these are the books for you. These books are the kind of books I would want to share with my (future) children and read together as a family.
Now you are probably thinking, “Okay, I get it. These are awesome books, I should really read them, I know, blah blah blah. Could you just tell me what they are?”. Yes I will. I will tell you in the next paragraph.
“Beautiful Girlhood” revised by Karen Andreola
The first book is particularly for young girls who are just beginning to bud into womanhood. It is wonderful for all age levels but is particularly aimed at the teens (by that I mean in the literal, mathematic sense, as in 10-20). It was originally written by M. Hale a long time ago, and was revised and updated by Karen Andreola. You can find it on Amazon here.
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.

“Disciplines of a Godly Woman” by Barbara Hughes
This is a book for every age. And if read with sincerity and willingness, it WILL change your life for the better. It is a book that I feel like I could read 5000X and still learn something more by reading it again. An added bonus are the resources at the back of the book. You can get the book here. Here is the summary of “Disciplines of a Godly Woman” that I got of Amazon:
D I S C I P L I N E .
Maybe discipline seems like a hard word to you—implying nothing but challenge and duty. Yet most of us see the value in cultivating spiritual disciplines, and we long to be more consistent in our relationship with God, even in the midst of our busy lives.
Combining biblical teaching, poignant stories, and insightful reflection questions, Barbara Hughes explores 15 vital disciplines in this classic book—helping us to mature as godly Christian women and giving meaningful shape to our lives.
I highly suggest both of these books. You seriously need to read them if you haven’t already.
Thank you for reading! Hope you enjoyed!
Have a great day!!
“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” -1 Peter 3:3-4 (ESV)
