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.

I'm giving away a FREE copy!! Just leave me a comment and you will be entered to win! That's it! I'll pick a winner Friday.

**Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I serve with youth and this would be awesome for one of the girls!

  2. My 11 yr old foster daughter just got saved. She has had an unbelievably rocky road. I am looking for something that is short, sweet, yet can increase her understand of God & faith. I think I have just found a good fit! Blessings as you raise your daughter to seek the ways of our Lord. Thanks for her sweet review. ~ jen

  3. Hi Alecia!

    Thank you so much for reading and reviewing my devo. I'm very glad you liked it and please tell Keeli thank you for her encouraging words, too. I love that it brought her closer to God!


  4. Hi Alecia,

    Thanks so much for the great review and opportunity to win a copy! I've really been feeling convicted lately on the lack of time I spend in devotions with my daughters. This might be just the resource I need... We do family devotions and have lots of great talks but I think it's time I started something specific with my girls. Hope you have a great week!

  5. Thanks for stopping my blog!I am very excited about doing the 31 Day Challenge. And it is encouraging to see all that are doing it together. I am now a follower...I looking forward to reading your blog in the future.

    God Bless,


  6. Sounds like a wonderful book! Modesty is a recurring issue with many of the "tweens" in our church. Your daughter is blessed to have you as a mom! Thanks for the great post, and much love in Him!

  7. Hi Alecia,

    I'm hopping over from Imperfect Prose's link up. Thanks for the idea and review on this tween devotional. I have a tween daughter and work with teens, so I appreciate hearing about other resources out there.

    Have a lovely week,
    Jennifer Dougan

  8. I think that is awesome to have a book that you could review that your daughter could glean from too! Very cool!

  9. Oooh I'd love to win this! My tween and I are always looking for good resources!
    I'd love it if you would join the conversation at my place...



  10. I would love a copy. I have 2 tweens and am trying to use Faithgirls and another one that is focused on tweens and girls.

  11. Hi! Your daughter's words were sweet, "to rise my spirit", that part made me smile. Thanks so much for your kind encouragement on my guest post at Imperfect Prose. Keep teaching your girl that "greater is He who is in her"!

  12. Hi Alecia, so glad to see you on Winsome Wednesday. I pray you have a blessed weekend with lots of moments of peace.
    God bless
