Fashioned by Faith Giveaway with Rachel Lee Carter

I wanted to let you know about a fantastic new release by a wonderful women I met through our Proverbs 31 She Speaks conference. And one of you will win an autographed copy of it!!

The short informal bio on her is that she is a sweet mom who loves Jesus, has a passion for teens and who was kind to my teenage daughter.

Now, here is her professional bio:

Rachel Lee Carter is an alumnus of Word of Life Bible Institute in Schroon Lake, NY.  There, she studied Bible Survey and Systematic Theology with an emphasis on missions and youth ministry.

After hearing God’s call on her life as an international Christian model, she now uses this platform to share the love of Jesus Christ within the fashion industry as a professional conference speaker to mothers, daughters, tween, youth and teen groups throughout the country.

As a professional model of 20 years, and modesty advocate, Rachel has traveled to over 30 countries.

Clientèle includes Cover Girl, Tommy Hilfiger, Perry Ellis, Wrangler, Arrow, Chico’s, Elle, Nicole  Miller, Motorola,  DKNY,  Reebok, Microsoft, SAKS Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s, Bloomingdales and many others.

Rachel was also crowned Mrs. North Carolina United States in 2009. She resides in Conover, NC with her husband Daryl, and their sons, Jack and Jude. You can learn more about her at

Rachel has just released a book with Thomas Neslon called Fashioned by Faith. It offers a cutting-edge approach to the concept of beauty with a Biblical foundation that will attract moms and daughters alike.

Everyone knows that we live in a “skin-is-in” society, heavily driven by media and immodesty. So how does a young Christian woman reconcile a fashionable wardrobe with maintaining her integrity?

Readers will love hearing about Carter’s exciting story as she leads them on an engaging study that touches on a huge felt need for young women: real beauty has nothing to do with looks.

Offering three valuable perspectives—teen boys, a professional model, and God’s Word—Carter explains her standards of modesty in a way that will make readers acquire a specific understanding of the author’s wardrobe choices and the impact those choices can make on others.

Readers will also learn to season their self-image with daily quiet time with God. A tour of Scripture will reveal the value of heart issues like modesty and why they’re important to God.

Never compromising her sense of style or her faith, every young lady can discover what it means to be Fashioned by Faith.  Moms and girls will love this book!

Check it out! And if you want to catch a glimpse of her interview on the 700 Club, click here.

  1. I happened to hear your interview on 106.9 one morning. I was very interested. I have a 4 year old daughter so I know I will be faced with this one day soon. However, in our church right now is a young lady that needs this book. I am very excited about reading it myself as well. Thank you for sharing your story with us. I was also excited to hear you are in Conover because I was raised in Newton. Thanks again.

  2. My granddaughter is graduating a year early to move away from a troubled home. She will be going to a community college and staying with my husband neice who has been mentoring her. This book would be a real help to her as she goes to college she knows the Lord and struggles to live for Him in the troubled world.

  3. I am a youth pastors wife and one of my passions is wanting teen girls to realize that their value is in Christ and not in boys or how the world sees them. I would love to have this book :) I too am a Word of Life Bible Institute Alumus! :) Class of 99 :)

  4. I work with youth and it sounds like a great read for what the girls (and parents) are facing.

  5. How fitting this is for me this week with sooo mnay things on the calendar!!! With preschool graduation pics, Teacher Appreciation day at 2 schools, room mom for the preschool class, Mother’s Day Tea, Field Day, 2 Bible study groups, soccer, KY Derby party, visiting with friends this evening (fun!), oil change & transmission service, unplanned visit to the vet for our dog, moving and reconstructing a gigantic wooden playset for our boys…and did I mention homework every night, karate class for child #1 twice this week, and they still want food several times a day, clothes washed, grocery shopping, playing with kids, baths, reading at bedtime…and then there’s the husband who needs some quality time. Thank you so much for the reminder that I have to be God’s daughter FIRST!! All the other stuff will work itself out once I focus my life and daily heart on HIM! Those other things lose my utmost attention when I remember to put my Savior first.

  6. Our hats are many as women. I am blessed to be surrounded by wonderful women in my life. With my husband unemployed for three years now and three teenage sons, I am living the what will we drink, what will we wear time, and God shows up. I am very thankful for Proverbs 31 Ministry. Thank you
