Maybe you've had a moment-a time in your history when God did something radical in your heart. Putting your faith and trust in Him certainly feels like taking a giant leap, but really it's just the beginning of the exciting, and-yes-radical journey that comes with agreeing to live as God calls you to.
What does being radical look like? In the Bible, the common characteristics are:
* They trusted God.
* They listened to God's voice and then obeyed-even when it cost them.
* Because of their faith, they lived lives that looked different from everyone else's.
That's a short list and a tall order, but basically it means you can be a radical too. There's nothing on that list that is impossible for you. There's nothing on that list that requires you to be older, or more financially stable, or to have a college degree. No matter who you are or where you live you can live a radical faith.
Meet Erin, she has learned practical ways to do just that.
My Name is Erin: One Girl's Plan for Radical Faith is part of a 4-book series:
My Name is Erin: One Gilr's Journey to Discover Truth
My Name is Erin: One Girl's Journey to Discover Who She Is
My Name is Erin: One Girl's Mission to Make a Difference
P.S. You can read them in any order - but be radical and jump in!
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5October 28, 2013FitzysmomFinding great material for your junior high girl is a hard task. When I came across this series by Erin Davis I was thrilled. It is so relevant to what that age of girl is facing. The language is in a style that girls of this age will relate to. The topics are very needed and it is set up in a format that would be very conducive to using in a small group setting.
Each of the books are stand-alone and can be done in any order. There are five chapters in every book so they could easily be divided up into a five week study. It is set up where the group leader and the participants would use the same books, there isn't a need for a separate leader guide.
While I think it would make an excellent small group study, I also think it would be wonderful as a personal devotional book as well. Or better yet, get the series and do it as a starting point for some great mother/daughter discussions!
I received a copy of the book to facilitate my review.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5Great book for your tweenOctober 12, 2013MelissaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an awesome series for your tween. I would say eleven to fourteen(ish)-year-olds would enjoy these books.
Erin writes in a way that will resonate with young girls. She doesn't shy away from tough issues but doesn't go places that would make moms uncomfortable either.
I love that the books have places for reflection for the girls to actually write in the book and think about what they are reading.
The books are small and cute (just what a girl likes) and a quick read. For me I could read each book in about an hour but for my daughter I would suggest reading a chapter a day so she can reflect on each chapter.
As always, I think reading it with your daughter or before you give her the books will give you a greater benefit so you can have conversations with her about what she is reading.
If you are looking for ways to open up conversation between you and your tween (and what mom isn't?) this could be what you are looking for. I highly recommend this series :)
Copies of these books were given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
