Many of you have heard of the popular book, Raising Maidens of Virtue, by my friend, Stacy McDonald, who is also the author of Passionate Housewives Desperate for God. I have personally used this book with my own daughters as a helpful guiding tool and we have all been blessed by it immensely. Good books for daughters are few and far between-- one that addresses all the issues without unnecessary fluff with sound doctrine is always appreciated!
Now did you know that Stacy has added SEVERAL NEW chapters to this book? Take a peek:
A Little Further Down the Road
The Heart of Chastity
The Beauty of Chastity
So This Is...Love?
Will Striving to Become a Maiden of Virtue Save Me?
Modesty Promotes Friendship

"I was 22 years old and a brand new Christian when something happened to me that forever impacted my opinion of how to approach immodesty in new Christians. An older woman, the precious lady who led me to the Lord, became very frustrated with me after she and her family invited me to visit their beach cabin.
I had been walking around in front of my friend’s husband and teen sons all weekend long in a bikini, with just a light, open, button down shirt thrown over the top of it. Finally, in obvious frustration, she told me I needed to “go put some clothes on!”
I was horrified and so embarrassed! I still remember standing there on the beach wondering if I should run to the cabin or bury myself in the sand. Maybe a wave would swallow me. I felt like the “emperor who had no clothes!” All of a sudden I realized I was practically naked – and had been, all weekend!
I recall wishing that she would have been frank with me about modesty at the beginning of the weekend (privately and gently). Her hesitancy caused her own unnecessary frustration, and it cost me immense humiliation. While I had noticed her coolness toward me that weekend, I hadn’t realized what was causing it."
