Be "tween" You and God
I was lucky enough to be able to review The One Year Be-Tween You & God devotions for girls, by Sandra Byrd, this past month. I have been looking for something age appropriate for my daughter and me to do together and this devotional was perfect.
The devotional's weren't too long and the message was just deep enough to get her thinking. I even had my son sit in on it too and he got something out of most of them, they really applied to both. If you are a mother of a tween, then like me you have come to realize that we are in a battle for their hearts. Their friends and boys are calling out to them and it is so hard to get their attention and keep them focused on what is most important, God's calling on their life.
So, I am going to let Keeli, my daughter tell you in her words what she thought about this book. I really couldn't think of a better way to review it, than to let the tween of the house, who I wanted the book for in the first place, give her two cents.
Hi I'm Keeli, and I like this book because its quick and easy to understand. It helps me with my day. It helps me get closer with God. I get a devotion in the morning to rise my spirit.
Well, there you have it, in the short and sweet words of my eleven year old, folks.
I personally really liked that the devotional's were aimed at topics that she is dealing with right now. There were a couple of times that we would deal with something like respect the night before and the next morning our story would be on respect and what that looks like in her life.
Each day ends with an applicable bible verse with What God Says, and a question to how they can apply the verse and lesson to their lives.
I would recommend this book to any parent looking for a good devotional to do with their tween girl.
