Moms and daughters can steal away for a night of fun, biblical truth and fashion tips at the Secret Keeper Girl Tour so 8- to 12-year-old girls can learn practical modesty and beauty tips from best-selling author Dannah Gresh.

Moms and daughters will enjoy watching a fashion show featuring girls in today's hottest looks. But the outfits reflect modesty and pass the Secret Keeper Girl Truth or Bare Fashion Tests.

"A survey revealed two-thirds of underweight 12-year-olds thought they were fat." Gresh said. "I think if you instill in your daughter from ages 8 to 12-years-old a sense of her beauty and a sense that her body is not her value, you can have girls that are much stronger in their teen years.

"We want them to be aware that they are beautiful just the way they are."

Between the fashion shows, speakers will talk about peer pressure and internal beauty from a biblical perspective. "We want to expel some of the lies about beauty that girls hear every day," said Gresh.

"We're seeing at a younger and younger age that the marketing industry is having a harmful impact on women and girls. One of the things we're trying to do is alleviate early sexual activity."

The balloon-decorated stage, upbeat worship songs and crazy helium flyers will create a memorable environment for moms and daughters to connect with each other.

"We hope they will feel closer and (experience) a strong mother-daughter connection," Gresh said.
Tickets cost $25 for each mother-daughter pair, and $10 for each additional daughter.

Faith Community Church is at 24620 Meadowridge Dr. in Santa Clarita.
