Devotional for Tween Girls
Each page in the devotional is labeled with a day of the year, amounting to one short devotion per day. The top of the page highlights a question that a girl in this age-range (or at any age for that matter) might have. Some examples are: "Dear God, How do I know that the Bible is the true Word of God? * Dear God, Why don't you just get rid of all the bad people in the world? *Dear God, Sometimes it seems like you made a lot of rules. Why did you do that? *Dear God, Which Bible verses will help me when I want to talk back to my parents?....yep, I like that one!!! Sara agreed that the questions were interesting and captured her attention.
Following the question are a few paragraphs in response. Sara and I found the information to be easy to read and thought provoking. At the bottom of the page there is a related Bible verse and a question to answer and discuss with God. While there is a Scripture Index in the back, I think it would have been more helpful to have a Topical Index.
Besides the content being appealing to young girls, the embossed leather cover is beautiful! I think any girl would treasure this book. Sara is very interested to begin reading it daily and get some of those questions answered! With Christmas shortly upon us, this would make a great gift for the "Tween" girl in your life.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
