This devotional is a great book. My daughter and I spend time each night going through it. It has many practical stories and applications and offers great chances to talk to my daughter about girl things and also to tell her a bit about myself at this age. Highly recommend it
This devotion book has been so much fun for my daughter and me to do together. Not only are the stories and biblical applications fun and interesting, but they are also very relevant for my 8 year old. She can't wait until we do them every day. We are thoroughly enjoying this devotion book!
Recently my daughter and I had the opportunity to read [for review] The One Year Mother-Daughter Devotional put out by Dannah Gresh.
We really enjoyed the variety and simplicity of these devotions. They didn't overload my daughter but did give her "food for thought".
In addition, we were able to discuss issues right there on the spot, because we were doing the devotion together.
I think it is extremely healthy and great for relationship building (of you & your daughter as well as your daughter and God) to do devotions together. Even if your daughter is old enough to read on her own. Doing them together opens up the opportunity for conversation and questions answered on the spot. Rather than having them forgotten in the midst of life, between doing the devotion separate and trying to find time to meet together later.
Dannah explores topics that young girls face and not every devotion is all seriousness. There is plenty of fun to be hadâ€”because living should be fun, too!
Each devotional is equipped with "Girl Gab" which helps create conversations about each issue discussed. I really enjoy that because often it asks me questions to help me share parts of my walk with God with my daughter so that she can see that I face struggles, too. It helps her see that living a life for God is not easy and she is not alone.
Dannah shares 5 different elements throughout these devotionals. They are:
* Bible Blast - digging deeper into Scripture
* Language Lab - help with important words in the Christian faith (like "Hallelujah")
* Amazing Animals - a couple devotions a month that feature amazing animals and what they can teach us about God
* Kickin' Kraft - some devotions offer the opportunity to make a craft (my daughter LOVES crafts)
* Meditation Moments - learning to meditate on God's word
This would make a great gift this Christmas! It's a great way for you to come into fellowship with your daughter and talk about God's word together. I honestly can't think of anything better.

My 10 year old and I have had so much fun with this! It is a great time spent over this devotional. What I love is that we can do this over and over and our conversations and discussions will change as she gets older. I can also stick this back and do this with my 5 year old when she gets older. I love spending time talking with my girls about God, the bible and what is going on in their day to day life. This book makes it not only fun, easy but a great quality time together.
thank you Tyndale for sending us this mother/daughter devotional for review
Hey moms, if you want some M/D time in God's Word then why not consider Danna Gresh's devo book just for this special time. You don't have to do the Devo together, but what better way to spend time with your daughter than studying God's Word. This book is very unique Here are some things you'll find in this book:
Each day will have:
* a Bible Blast section where you can read a portion of God's Word that goes along with the devotional
* also a Girl Gab where mom and daughter can share their own experiences together.
Some days you'll experience:
* a Language Lab where you'll learn some important words in the Christian faith and their meaning. An easy-to-swallow theology lesson written on your level.
* Amazing animals and what you can learn about them from the Bible.
* Meditation Moments are devotions that help us think on certain passages in God's Word and practice just meditating on them
* Kickin' Kraft days have a easy to make craft to go along with the devotional to help you remember the lesson learned for that day
I thought this was a very neat book and written on a pre-teen girls level that they can understand. It handles issues that they'll come up against in their life. Why not think about your princess finding this under the Christmas tree. What a way to help her start off a brand New Year.
