In today's society, learning the basic rules of etiquette can seem quite outdated. However, this doesn't mean that you should not reach the highest possible standards in every area of your life and become a Girl with Grace. Do you dare to believe in yourself and allow your unique qualities to shine through? How can you handle any social situation with confidence and courage? With easy to follow techniques and exercises that you can use every day, Girls With Grace by Gracemarie Serafina will enhance your skills in so many areas - from improving your self-image, nutrition, and diet to goal setting, communicating effectively and building healthy relationships. This is the perfect guide for any girl wishing to become self-reliant, independent and a brave warrior.

Girls With Grace by Gracemarie Serafina is an ideal book for any young girl wishing to appreciate themselves and make an impact on the modern culture of today. Everything in this handbook is laid out in an easy to follow manner. I loved the way the author encourages the reader to believe in themselves and make the most of their God-given qualities. There are so many chapters that I would have found very helpful as a young girl; how to portray a confident self-image, managing stress effectively and common courtesies are just a few. I loved the beauty tips from Audrey Hepburn and the section on nutrition was so simple to implement. My favorite chapters had to be the goal-setting methods and techniques to sharpen your brain; these were amazing. This should be in every girl's possession as it will act as a launchpad to increase the belief in themselves so they can fulfill any goal they aspire to achieve. An ultimate guidebook for life, peace and pure contentment. One quote from the book that I loved and will use: 'When you lose, don't lose the lesson.'
