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.

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!

  1. As the mother of 3 girls ages 9, 7, and 5, this book sounds like a valuable tool to use as they grow into young ladies. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  2. My daughter is only 4 right now, but I am sure that this book will be just what we need one day. :) Thanks for the oppurtunity!

  3. a mother of three, ages 20, 18 and 16…..I long ago gave up trying to be “super mom”. I just wanted to be the “right” mom for each individual child. When God finally got through my thick skull that I could not be the same mom to all three, I began to accept that they truly were 3 very different, very individual children. They have different needs and different love languages. One required short spurts of time, one required long periods of one-on-one time together, and the last required lots of hugs and kisses all throughout the day. I learned to pick my battles, like letting my daughter wear white glitter converse tennis shoes to the prom with her evening gown! God’s little “love” lessons helped make peace in my home!

    1. Thanks for the comment about picking battles and being the best mom for each child! I will remember this each day as my boys grow.

  4. I need this book. Life is beyond busy and every helping hand/suggestion is deeply valued.
    Thank you.

  5. As a mom of two girls ages 14 and 9, and two boys ages 13 and 11, teaching them about God’s version of modesty is a building block that impacts many decisions for their lives. The boys cringe when I talk about it, but later on they will understand and also look for a woman who follows after God.

  6. With 2 tween girls and a 3rd coming up this book would be a great thing to read together with them. I’m in!!

  7. This would be a great book to have for my daughter (she is 11) and I to read together. I think it is so important to teach our daughters about modesty and why they’re important to God. Thanks for this fabulous giveaway!!

  8. This sounds like a wonderful book that I would like to share with some teen girls in my life. I’m going to go to the website

  9. I have two teenage daughters and could use some help. I haven’t always been a Christian and made many mistakes as a teenager and young adult. I don’t want my daughters to make those same mistakes.

    1. My heart is with you. I was that same teen that made those mistakes. I share them in the book so you don’t have to. Hopefully, they can learn from my mistakes. Blessings to you. Rachel

  10. So timely!! As the mother of a 10-yr old girl and early teen boys, modesty is big on my radar. Even among Jesus girls this seems like such a big – yet undiscussed issue.

    1. Thank you! I’m a mom of boys too-so we have a whole different approach to handling modesty. I think this will be a resource that you can use not only for your girl, but also to steer your boys from girls who dress immodestly and to learn the reasons behind why girls do. :) blessings!

  11. It sounds like a wonderful book from listening to Rachel interviewed on KTIS radio. I would love for my two teenage daughters to read this book! I’m in!!

  12. Just what I need to help continue to teach my daughter the virtue of modesty while capturing her attention with a model! Thanks for being a godly example!

    1. Thank you! Yes, the model me is just the “hook” that God is using to capture the interest of these girls. I’m thankful for the opportunity and don’t take the responsibility lightly. Thanks for your encouragement.
