Publisher's Summary

In a culture of distortions, discover God-defined womanhood and beauty.

In a culture where airbrushed models and career-driven women define beauty and success, it's no wonder we have a distorted view of femininity. Our impossible standards place an incredible burden of stress on the backs of women and girls of all ages, resulting in anxiety, eating disorders, and depression. One question we often forget to ask is this: What is God's design for womanhood?

In Girl Defined, sisters and popular bloggers Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird offer women a countercultural view of beauty, femininity, and self-worth. Based firmly in God's design for their lives, this book helps women rethink what true success and beauty look like. It invites them on a liberating journey toward a radically better vision for femininity that ends with the discovery of the kind of hope, purpose, and fulfillment they've been yearning for.

Girl Defined helps listeners discover God's design for femininity and his definition of a successful woman uncover the secrets of lasting worth, purpose, and fulfillment be equipped and empowered to live out a radically better vision for womanhood gain personal insight through the chapter-by-chapter study guide.

Judgy, narrow and shallow

This surely is a pretty story, all neat and nice from the outside. But I can’t help but feel that the authors are very naive and have been very sheltered growing up. There are obvious issues regarding their theology, and the conclusions they draw from it. They are attempting to ”raise the status” of motherhood and homemaking, but I can’t help but feel that they care more about how society would look ”nicer” if women stayed in their homes. There’s a lot of paternalism going on in their arguments.

I don’t doubt Kristen and Bethany have a genuine passion for young girls, but their effort is too shaped by American culture for me to take it seriously (there’s a world outside the u.s, you know). Kinda like 1950’s video propaganda.

The chapter on biblical gender roles is simply embarrassing. The descriptions of what is female throughout the book is shallow, artificial and again, contains more American culture than God’s kingdom. I suggest Kristen and Bethany research history more, and try to look beyond their American worldview.

According to Kristen and Bethany, a married woman with children cannot and should not pursue contentment and happiness outside the home. This I believe is harmful, and yes, even offensive to God who has created women all over the world to do a plethora of things, all for the glory of God and the spreading of his kingdom: lead countries, do business, preach, excel in creativity and academics. It is dangerous when someones lack of (for instance) academic ambition becomes the norm.

This book will create women whose lives look neat from the outside. But that won’t change the world. I do believe that some girls who genuinely wish to be full time moms may find this book helpful, but I’m sorry to say that Bethany and Kristen are very judgy towards everything they don’t understand. That isn’t the right attitude. So no, I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone.

Love this book!

So very thankful for what God is doing in and through these wonderful girls! And thankful that they are so willing to submit to God, stand for truth, and shine the light of Christ to a lost generation. Having had few Christian role models to look up to throughout my growing up years, I am especially thankful to have two girls slightly further on in the race cheering me on and sharing how I can better run the race for Christ with perseverance. :) You simply must read this book! :)

A life changing book

Where does Girl Defined rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The best audiobook I've listened so far. Used to listen it in the morning before work, while drinking my coffe, and felt like I was among sisters who loved life and just wanted to be the very best they could be. It was great!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Girl Defined?

There was this moment when the authors talked about how God wants us to be good mothers and wifes, and then they said one of them is single and the other doesn't have children, but they weren't afraid to say they loved God and were His servers. As I'm single and childless myself, I often feel embarassed to talk about God's design for women, but to hear them felt so liberating.

Which character – as performed by Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird – was your favorite?

I loved them both!

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

It's ok to be radical about God's word.

Any additional comments?

I can't recommend this book enough for women of all ages! It's an incredible girl talk.

brave woman

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this candid book on biblical womanhood I felt it addressed the topic in a really easy way to follow and was good for an introduction or overview of the topic at times I felt like it targeted a much younger audience (I'm 26) but I could still appreciate the information I guess that have it broader reach....
after listening I'm encouraged to live out my Brave womanhood without hesitation
