What Is A G.L.A.M. Girl?
Godly Ladies Adorned Modestly A GLAM Girl is a young woman aware of her surroundings...and not that impressed. Everywhere she looks girls are advertising their bodies and if anybody dares cover up they are said to be bashful or ordinary. Starlets walk the runways in dresses that resemble lingerie and people call them glamorous. She however, has a different opinion…
A GLAM Girl is a young woman who is ready for a challenge. She has made a conscious decision to be godly; even if that means that she is different. This means she will put God first in every aspect of her life. She has made it her priority to conform her life to His Will.
A GLAM Girl is a lady in that she embraces her femininity instead of trying to cover it up or sell it. She knows that it takes a strong woman to patiently wait for her husband and to raise children in the Lord. She does not view her gender as a crutch but realizes God made her a woman for a reason: To fulfill a role only she can...with grace, honor, and virtue.
A GLAM Girl understands that what she decides to put on, and how she decides to behave needs to be a thought-out decision, realizing she is to reflect God in all ways. She knows that even though it is popular to show more skin, she does not want to put herself into a situation where she is causing guys to lust after her. Yes...she wants to be attractive, and has learned that modesty does not mean boring, but can be just as stylish as what is on the front of the most popular magazine.
A GLAM Girl has taken back the word glamorous and is using it to glorify God. Are you up for the challenge?

There are over six billion people, speaking thousands of different languages, scattered over almost two hundred countries in this world. With all of the differences that come with so much diversity one of the things that ties us all together is our outright fascination with... sex. It is everywhere...and teenage girls are completely aware of this.
With such an intriguing subject comes a multitude of questions and curiosities. It seems that in the world in which we live, just about as soon as we notice that the annoying boy who chases us around the playground is actually kinda cute, we are introduced to pornography. As soon as we look down and see that our chest is bigger than it was a couple of months ago, we are offered push up bras and thongs at the department store. All of this can be extremely confusing to a girl, and too often she just goes with worldly advice from magazines and distorted explanations from friends and media about what to do with her new-found sexuality.
My goal with this book is to explore what a teenage girl striving to be a Christian needs to know about sex. Parents: Sometimes we wish to put our heads in the sand and pretend that our precious children are not affected by these things...but that is simply not true. As much as we would like to shelter them from the wiles of the devil, you and I both know that one day they will venture out. We need to arm them by showing that the Word of God does address what they face as opposed to hinder them with ignorance.
Girls: I want to show that God cares about what you are going through, and in order to help you through these confusing times, He talked about sex over and over again throughout the Bible. By exploring this subject with a godly perspective I hope to encourage you to not go to the world for the answers...but to God.
So come enter the world of the GLAM Girl and get ready for an adventurous study about the most popular subject known to man...sex.
