Honor the King with your life. Swear allegiance to Him and to Him only, serve the King in truth, justice, and honor. Offer compassion to the weak, the destitute, the widowed, and the poor. Live for the King serve others without cause for personal gain. Never adandon a fellow Knight in battle or in peril. Equip, train, and prepare for battle against the forces of the Dark Knight. Serve the King and faint not in the day of battle. Use not the sword for personal gain, but rather to execute justice and the will of the King. Be merciful, loyal, courageous, faithful, nobel, but above all, be ye humble before the King and before men. Let your words be always spoken in truth. - The Code Sir Dalton And The Shadow Heart

Lost Art Of True Beauty- By Leslie Ludy
Sensuality equals beauty—that’s what today’s young women are learning from our sex-obsessed society. Millions of 20 somethings are caught up in trying to look like fashion models, movie stars, or the hottest new pop singer and end up plagued by insecurity, eating disorders, and sexual promiscuity.
Bestselling author and speaker Leslie Ludy (Set-Apart Femininity and Authentic Beauty) shares a different vision for feminine loveliness as God intended it to be—the breathtaking radiance of a young woman who has been transformed by Christ from the inside out. With candid personal stories, practical advice, and inspiration, Leslie leads young women on a life-changing journey to become women of feminine grace, beauty, and enduring style.
Leslie inspires girls toward inner changes but also talks about practical social grace and manners, how to dress beautifully, and even how to create a warm and lovely environment in the home. Clearly, true beauty is more than skin deep.
Rating: 5/5 Age range: 14-20
When Miss Ludy says in the begininng that she trys to write her books in a "conversational" tone. It truely is as if she is sitting across the tabel speaking to you.
The topics range from modesty and appearance, to being all God wants you to be. I woud say though that most of the topics most likely be over a 12 or under young lady's head. None of the topics would be inappropriate, but they may not get all of it at that age-or younger.
This is the first book I've read by Leslie Ludy, and I hope to get many more! It was well written and enjoyable. I would reccomend it to any young lady looking for a good non-fiction book.
