I bought this book to do with my 16 year old daughter as a devotional. The high ratings were what caused me to buy it, but I didn't feel it lived up to expectations. We both found it a very light and "feel good" book. There were only a few verses to look up with each devotion, and they weren't really explored in context. I felt like I had to find more Scriptures to add. Maybe this would be good for someone brand new to Scripture, or someone younger. I was hoping for something more challenging for my daughter. (As a reference to where I'm coming from, I also bought Beth Moore's book, Whispers of Hope, and that is working out great for our devotion time and leading to some good discussion!)
My 16 year old daughter is about half-way through this Bible study and has enjoyed how much of it she can apply to her life as a teen. It doesn't require a lot of time and I never have to remind her to do it. She has had no trouble doing this Bible study on her own (not in a group setting).
Just finishing this study with a small youth group. It has been very helpful and informative to the high school girls. the content was very relatable to teenagers today. I really appreciate that the Author has the reader look up at least one verse per lesson...this ensures that the reader will start to understand the importance of looking up verses, discovering and using the Bible for themselves. Great for a small high school bible study or even for individual studies.
This book study is so great! I am working through it right now and I am definitely going to share it with my youth girls!! It really is a good book as far as scriptural teaching and relating to girls and the situations we face. Thanks Christianbook.com!!
