Review: Devoted by:Marjorie Jackson


Devoted: A Girl’s 31-Day Guide to Good Living with a Great God
 "I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review."

About the Book:
Is it really possible for a twenty-first-century young woman to live a life in direct contrast to culture’s ever-changing standards? The answer is yes. You're invited to join author Marjorie Jackson in Devoted, a 31-day devotional about letting love and dedication to Jesus penetrate every area of your life—relationships, decisions, standards, convictions, priorities. . .everything. Whether you're a long-time Christian or the spiritual training wheels are still on, you'll dive into God’s Word and discover what it truly means to be a young woman who is completely, joyfully, beautifully different. . .while coming to understand that life is good with a God who is great!

My Review:
 A young woman these days needs a guide through life and God is that guide. She needs every moment of her day to day with God permeating in it, there is just no other say. Life these days is more and more difficult and navigating it seems rougher than it did 10 years ago much less 50. 

 Marjorie Jackson can set those sails right. She can take a young girl on a journey onward and upward and show her how to stay focused on Him and what He really wants for our lives. I really loved the cover of the book, it was a refreshing cover and made me want to open the book.

 As I read along I realized how much my almost 20 year old daughter could learn from this book. She is just starting out in the world. She is in ministry and has already finished seminary and is looking ahead wanting to know what is next for herself. This book asks some of those difficult questions. I really believe it could get her to thinking even more and maybe even expand on some conversations she and God have already been having. I also liked the fact that there are coloring pages in it, as well.
