Review: Girl Talk:52 Weekly Devotions by:Lois Walfrid Johnson
About the Book:
As you grow up, a lot of new, sometimes strange, things start to happen, and it can be overwhelming. You have new responsibilities, new opportunities, and a whole new set of problems, and sometimes it can feel like no one but you can understand what it’s like to be you.
You’re not alone. This one-year devotional is filled with stories about girls who feel just like you. As you read their stories each week and fill in questions about how you think each girl should react, you’ll learn new ways to deal with the pressures around you, embrace the opportunities God has given you, and make choices that give you the opportunity to dream. Through prayer and journal exercises, you’ll also discover there is someone out there who knows exactly how you feel. And he’s more than ready to listen.
When girls go through that magic age of puberty, they feel like they are the only ones that have ever experienced it and they feel like no one understands what they are going through. But besides that they can feel that God has abandoned them and everything is turned upside down and mixed up but their parents and most importantly God know better. While encouragement from these two sources are a help it is also good o hear about others experience with it to be able to grasp the milestone even better and to not feel so alone.
This devotional is long enough to last your daughter for the entire year. Each one gives a scripture and a short lesson on what the scripture may be teaching along with some lesson learning questions and even an area to doodle some thoughts about the devotional lesson. I love the prayer at the end of each days lesson. This devo is the perfect way to get our girls focused on God and what He wants to reveal to them.
