- Beautiful Girlhood
by Karen Andreola
Those years of transition from childhood to womanhood are filled with wonderful interest and promise. But the young feet that travel this way may be unsteady and unsure. Each could use guidance, a helping hand along the way. To encourage our girls to a nobler life and truer ideals is the task of this book.
There is a word of yesteryear seldom heard today. Reading Beautiful Girlhood brings back the charm and sentiment associated with it. The word is "lady-like."
Beautiful and noble possibilities are present in every girl for becoming a godly woman, for becoming lady-like. Encouragement and counsel await mother and daughter who will read these pages together.
Each chapter makes it easy to discuss any awkward topic as well as the inspiring ones. Some chapter headings are: Character Building; The Strength of Obedience; A Sunny Disposition; The Beauty of Truthfulness; Ideals; A Conversation on Dress; Making Friends of Books.
