Editorial Reviews

Each daily devotion in The Beauty of Believing begins with a Bible verse at the top of the page and then presents a story or narrative illustrating the topic. A highlighted box each day includes “More to Explore,” consisting of additional Bible verses relating to the daily topic. Then there’s “Girl Talk,” an application section with self-reflection. Finally the box closes with “God’s Talk,” offering a prayer idea incorporating the daily topic. Geared to tween and teen girls, the topics include common pre-adolescent issues of social cliques, self-doubt, and competitive striving. Since the contributors are Faithgirlz! authors, they are very familiar with pre-teen dynamics---friends who drift apart, slower developing bodies, wanting to be a believer when friends seem to act inappropriately, etc. Comparable devotionals include 365 Devotions for Girls by Band H Kids Editoral Staff and More For Girls Only! Devotions by Carolyn Larsen. Those who desire some art illustrations along with the Bible and prayers can consult 3-Minute Devotions for Girls by Janice Thompson. One advantage of The Beauty of Believing is that the layout of the narrative provides enough space to highlight and make brief notes. Another advantage is that Scripture quotations are from the New International Version (NIV), The Amplified Bible (AMP), New Living Translation (NLT), The Message (MSG), the New American Standard Bible (NASB), or New King James Version (NKJV), giving both a personal and varied approach.

    This book by: Nancy N. Rue, Allia Zobel Nolan, Lois Walfrid Johnson, Kristi Holl, Mona Hodgson, and Tasha K Douglas is a daily devotional for young girls approximately 8-12 years old. This book is apart of the Faithgirlz! collection and is written by the popular Faithgirlz! authors. There are six sections in the book which all have an introduction written by one of the authors. The sections are as follows:

    Section 1- Growing Seeds of Faith

    Section 2- God's Promises

    Section 3- Finding Strength in Hard Times

    Section 4- God Speaks to Us

    Section 5- The Helping Body of Believers

    Section 6- The Beauty of Believing

    Each devotional is numbered (1-365) at the top of the page and is 1-2 pages of reading for each day. They start with a Bible verse and reference followed by the devotional title and text. Towards the end of the daily devotional there is a section that has: More to Explore: Scripture reference for the reader to look up and read, Girl Talk: Personal question(s) for the reader to ponder/answer, and God Talk: Short prayer for the reader to pray. Finally, the daily devotional ends with the author's name and book that the devotional was taken from.

    I think that these devotions will inspire pre-teen girls to have a deeper relationship with God.

    I wanted this book because my daughter is almost 8 years old. I thought that it would be a good way to introduce daily devotions to her. While I liked each of the devotions that I read, I feel that a lot of them were over my daughter's head. I would say that the devotions are more geared to pre-teen ages and not as young as 8. I'm not saying that an 8 year old couldn't understand these but some of them might require more explanation for the younger ages. It might also be based on individual maturity level. I decided that I will look for a different devotional for my daughter.

    In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission I am required to disclose that Zondervan provided this book for free in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
