Beauty in the Heart Schoolhouse Review #hsreviews

 photo doorpostlogo_zpsa7a5d5e4.jpg
Girls are funny, from an early age they want to be pretty. They like to fuss with their hair, wear the right clothes & shoes just to be beautiful. I have never put a lot of focus on my girls appearance. Yes, they have to be neat, and dress appropriately, but I have never taught them to spend hours on their appearance. I have tried to teach them that beauty comes from within and that God made them the way he wants them to be. We have been reviewing Beauty in the Heart that teaches this very thing.

The Schoolhouse Review Crew were offered Beauty in the Heart: A study of Godly Beauty for Young Women, and You Are Strong: A Study of Godly Strength for Young Men from Doorposts. Since I have 3 girls left at home we received Beauty in the Heart.

Beauty in the Heart: A Study of Godly Beauty for Young Women is a 8 1/2 X 11, 128 page paperback book or PDF ebook. This book is recommended for girls ages 12 and up, wives, and mothers. It is scheduled to be released on August 29, 2013 for $14.00, and if you order before August 31, 2013 you can get a free PDF ebook with your purchase.

Beauty in the Heart is divided into 10 chapters with an introduction and alternate questions for young men. It is primarily for women, but young men will benefit from it in order to seek a godly beautiful wife. Kings James Version of the bible have been used within the book & a concordance will be helpful.

Each of the nine studies include daily assignments that last 5 to 20 minutes a day. You may complete more than one daily lesson at a time or there are additional study ideas that can make the studies last longer.  

Not only do you learn about Biblical beauty you will also learn how to study the bible. It instructs you what to look for within a chapter of the bible and mark certain key items in different colors. The questions include observations, keywords, verse studies, application, Greek word studies and more. The book has the main text and questions on each page with further study options included on some pages in a grey box.

I used this with all three of my girls ages 8, 11, & 12. We took turns reading the suggested scripture and the rest of us would follow along in our own bible. We didn't write in the book, but we discussed the questions out loud. We used notebook paper for anything I wanted the girls to write on their own. I like to use New American Standard version of the bible, so that is what my girls have too. The NAS bible worked fine with the study. I have used the Strong's Concordance to look up Greek words before for our bible study time, but I haven't had the girls look up their own words until now and Amber & Delaney both enjoy looking them up.

Pam does an great job with this Bible study, the scriptures were very good to portray godly beauty. She does not include opinions or doctrine, but sticks with bible verses and word studies.

Pam Forster is the author of Beauty in the Heart. She has loved studying the bibles since she was a teenager, and most of her books came from her own personal Bible study. She is a veteran homeschool mom of 6 who enjoys keeping up with her children and grandchildren. 

Doorposts provides Bible-based parenting and character training materials. Their goal is to provide parents with tools to make their job of raising godly children easier. They offer bible study materials for husbands & fathers, wives & mothers, boys, girls, and the family.

If you want yourself and your daughters to have beauty in their hearts or if you want the men in your family to have godly strength then Beauty in the Heart or You Are Strong would make a perfect addition to your bible study.
