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.
A copy of this book was provided by Tyndale for this review.
My tween daughter and I absolutely loved this book. We enjoy snuggling up next to each other and reading the Bible Blast Scriptures. I like discussing what we just read and it is interesting to see her input on what we just read. We LOVE the sidebar activities. Girl Gab is a great way to gain insight to how your daughter is feeling about certain things. I have learned so much about my daughter through this devotional. It takes us about 10-15 minutes to do a devotional with very little prep work.
The One Year Mother Daughter Devo, by Dannah Gresh and Janet Mylin presents a fun new twist to devotional books.This book is not just for women and not just for kids,tweens, or teens. It is intended for moms and daughters to read together. Each devotion includes a Bible passage to look up and a devotional passage that is sure to capture the attention of tweens. The sidebar on most days features Girl Gabquestions for the mom answer and for the daughter to answer or discuss or a quick activity to do together. A couple times a month a Kicking Kraft activity reinforces the theme for the day.I think this book will be a favorite in our house. On day 2, Emily asked, We can keep this book after weve read it, cant we? I love the discussion topics that will help Emily and I know each other better and to grow in our faith together. Ive noticed that Emily really enjoys hearing about my experiences, especially when they involve stories of when I was little. We are enjoying that the activities and stories vary from day to dayone day, we may be discussing what makes us feel anxious; the next, we may be having a rooster-crowing contest or posting a Bible verse by the sink. Today, we looked up the meanings of our names, prayed for each other that we would live up to those meaning, talked about God giving Abram a new name and how God will someday give us a new name written on a white stone.Most days readings can easily be completed in about 10 minutes, with no preparation. I love that, because truthfully, anything that is labor or time-intensive is likely to be skipped on busy days.I think the target audience for this book is 9-12 year olds, but older and younger girls might enjoy it just as much.I received a review copy of this book free from Tyndale House Publishers. All opinions are my own.
A Mother Daughter Devo My mom, and my 2 younger sisters have been doing this devo and although it was meant for younger girls (12-) my mom and I have found it REALLY fun too! This Mother Daughter Devo was written by popular author/speaker Dannah Gresh with Janet Mylin. (this is a great devo for mothers with 12- girls my mom and I found it a little easy for us.The Devotional has different sections/categories that it covers throughout the book:* Kicken Craft* Amazing Animals* Bible Blast* Language Lab* Meditation MomentsAll of these sections are really great. We also loved all the crafts and recipes in the book, but have yet to do any of them. We've just talked about what good ideas they are and how we should try to do some of them. The bible verses and references where also WONDERFUL! We also loved all the great topics covered in the book. From your thoughts to your actions, this Mother Daughter Devo covered it all! My mom and I found that some of the devos even helped us!We loved this devotional and highly recommend it to any mom and daughter (s) looking for a devotional to do together that is not only biblically sound, but fun too. We could not find anything wrong with it at all. Now, for some of you, you may find that it is to modern for you but for the rest of you, if you don't mind a little bit of modern language than you'll enjoy this book! Danna Gresh has wrote yet another great book!
