Publishers Description Hundreds of years ago the first temptation to women appeared in the Garden of Eden through the enticement of an apple. Today, to the 21st century woman, the temptation comes through the beguiling charm of her wardrobe. A trip to the Garden of Eden would find that the apple was eaten because of compromise to Eve's character. A trip to the mall today will find that women have not only compromised their character, but their bodies as well as they pull on clothing that is sensual and seductive. Why Wear Those Hoochie Mamma Dresses? is directed to young girls and women, addressing the apparent lack of responsibility in which seductive clothing is worn in our modern day world.

But the Bible equips us to protect by allowing God to dress us from the inside out, which is reflected not only in our demeanor, but in our selection of fashions as well. The Bible says, ?The King's daughter is all glorious within, her clothing is interwoven with gold.? Read Why Wear Those Hoochie Mama Dresses? to see what the King has in His daughter's wardrobe.

Great For Reading With Your Daughters Or Youth Mar 10, 2007
The message of the book is so needed. I feel it's target age is late teen to early twenties and I've not found a book on this subject before that wasn't for young girls. If you are the mother of a teen or young lady I highly suggest reading this book together on clothing. You'll laugh a lot because Martha is funny, but you can also come together on the "clothing issue" and stop those arguments in the dressing rooms. Shopping might become fun again and modesty find it's way back to the women of our time. Would also be great in small group study.
