Be-Tween You and God Review
It isn't often that I am as excited to write a review as I am about this one. Be-Tween You & God, Devotions for Girls has a cheerful teal cover with embossed words and flowers. My Princess was super excited that I got this book for the two of us to read together. Sandra Byrd did a fantastic job putting together devotions that are relevant for tween girls.
The book is designed to do one devotion a day for a year. Each devotion has a date, so Princess and I just dove right in on the current date and will continue to follow for the year. Each day begins with a note to God from a tween's perspective. Below that, the bulk of the devotional is done in a section called "Consider this." This is the meat of the message and further explains the answer to the note. At the bottom of the page is a scripture related to the topic and a question to help girls discuss how they feel about the topic.
Questions in the book include:
Dear God, I worry that something bad might happen to me...
Dear God, I'd really like to trust you more. How can I do that?
Dear God, How do I know you exist? I mean, I can't see you.
Dear God, If angels are here to guide and protect us, does this mean I have a guardian angel?
I am looking forward to spending this special time with Princess each night as we go through this book and discover together what God wants her to learn about Himself and about her relationship with Him. While many of the topics are geared for girls, Prince was involved in tonight's devotional and shared from his heart as well.
I received Be-Tween You & God compliments of Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I am in no way obligated to give a high rating, but I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend you get this book for the special tween girl in your life.
