PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Encourage your child's faith.March 11, 2017PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I recently overheard a conversation between my daughter and husband. They were discussing how we need to put good foods into our body to grow strong and healthy. It started me thinking about how we need to put good things into our minds and hearts, to grow strong in our faith and knowledge of God. Brave Girls 365 Devotional is a great way to put faith-filled thoughts into the heart and minds of your little girl.
Brave Girls 365 Devotional is a daily devotional filled with 365 devotions that encourage your daughter to spend time daily in Gods word. She will join the Brave Girls Faith, Hope, Glory Honor and Gracie as they explore Gods word and how he is working in their lives.
Each devotion follows the same format. They are all dated and cover 1 to 2 pages. The length is great for reading any time of day. My daughter tends to read her devotions just before bed, but the length is perfect for reading just before school as well.
Each devotion starts off with a title followed by a scripture verse. I love it when my daughter reads her Bible, but she often gets frustrated when directed to find a particular chapter and verse. The scriptures are written directly at the top of each devotion making it easy for her to learn what God has to say to her, without the frustration of trying to find it in the Bible.
The devotions are written in everyday language and use situations that most girls can relate to. Your little girl will discover amazing things about Gods love and how it applies to her life. Each devotion will help build her faith and draw her closer to God. She will learn that with Gods power working in her, she can do anything. No matter how difficult the situation, God is bigger!
Each devotional ends with a Prayer Pointer. These are a great addition for any believer in Christ. If your little one struggles with starting her own conversation with God, these pointers are a great place to start.
My daughter is 7 and she would like more colour and images in the book. It is very pink. I think older girls will like the more mature feel to this devotional.
The Brave Girls 365 Devotional is a wonderful daily devotional that will grow your childs faith and encourage her to grow up strong in Gods word.

TheJoyfulAdvocate5 Stars Out Of 5Great for a Young Girl's DevotionalFebruary 6, 2017TheJoyfulAdvocateQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5My daughter (7) and I have been reading this devotional together for the past few weeks. We don't do one each day, like it's set up, because that's a little too much for her but we try to do at least three days each week. She cannot independently read all of the entries, but she enjoys it anyway. I think it's more along the lines of a 2nd-3rd grade reading level.
The content of the devotionals has impressed me. I like that it's not the same every day. Some days there are activities to complete (like a little quiz) or ideas on how to implement the content of the devotional. My daughter likes that it's not the same every day.
We are a homeschooling family, so the downside of the devotional is that many of the entries focus on situations traditionally-schooled kids face (such as responding to "clicks" of girls, reacting to embarrassing situations in a classroom, etc.). However, if my daughter was still in public school, I would really see this as a "plus" instead of a negative.
I would recommend this devotional for anyone with a young daughter from 2nd-5th grade. I would also recommend reading along with your daughter to reinforce the biblical messages being presented.

TexasMom5 Stars Out Of 5Another Exceptional Brave Girl DevotionalJanuary 20, 2017TexasMomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My daughter begged me to review the Brave Girls 365-Day Devotional: A Year of Devotions for Brave Girls Like You! written by Jennifer Gerelds and Tama Fortner. The book is illustrated by Aleksey and Olga Ivanov. It was published by Tommy Nelson: A Division of Thomas Nelson Publishers. We own all the other books from the Brave Girl Brand except for the Brave Girls Holy Bible.
This devotional book is suitable for tween girls between the ages of 7-12. My daughter doesn't actually know that I received this tween devotional yet. I plan on giving it to her as a gift soon. I read through many of the devotions during the review period. She is going to absolutely love this book! It is written in a similar format to their book series.
At the beginning of the devotion, there is an introduction based on 2 Corinthians 3:12, "We have this hope, so we are very brave." The introduction reminds the reader that we are all brave. The foundation or emphasis was on how God used ordinary Bible girls who followed His lead to accomplish amazing things in this world. The author also reminds the reader that God's love is what makes us strong and brave.
They will also read the "Meet the Brave Girls" section which contains information about each brave girl: Hope, Glory, Honor, Gracie, and Faith. The characters are relatable. I am sure your daughter will relate to one or more of the girls in some way or another. My daughter will most likely relate most with Faith who is a homeschooled perfectionist and Glory whose parents are divorced. There are several paragraphs describing each character's personality and character traits.
At the end of this "Meet and Greet" there is a "Youth Group" section encouraging children to work and worship with others. I appreciated the statement, "But together, we're even stronger - which is a great part of God's plan." This little reminder resonated with me after reading it. It reminded me that I need to work with others to accomplish God's plan for my life. I am hoping it will motivate my daughter to get more involved at our church and to worship more with others. I believe this devotional will help her develop a closer relationship with God and will inspire her to serve others as her faith grows.
The devotion is dated on the side but excludes the year so it can be used any year and can be started on any day. The creative titles sum up the devotion.
Each Daily Devotion Includes:
Referenced, Italicized Scripture
Short Devotional Story
Scattered throughout the devotion are Brave Girl activities including but not limited to true/false quizzes, thought-provoking questions, multiple choice questions, surveys, and what would you do scenarios. This is my daughter's favorite part of their books. It really helps her connect with and apply what she's learned to life.
I highly recommend this children devotional for tween girls between the ages of 7-12 yeas old. We are huge Brave Girl fans and have loved every single book we've utilized so far. The positive devotions will help guide tween girls through this crazy world we live in. Brave Girls 365 Devotional may just be that special gift you want for a child you love. It's definitely worth checking out!

Helianthus5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect gift for my 8-year-old daughter!December 5, 2016HelianthusQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I chose this book as a Christmas gift for my eight-year-old daughter, and she will be delighted with the stories and lessons inside. She will make new virtual friendships with all five of the Brave Girls: Hope, Glory, Honor, Gracie, and Faith. Each Brave Girl tells a bit about herself, and I appreciate that all of them share both strengths and challenges. They strive to be honest and grow in faith, just as I want my daughter to do.
This school year my daughter has experienced friendship struggles, school issues, and self-image challenges. Im thankful for this devotional resource, which will help us navigate the tween years with Gods direction. I plan to carve out time daily to go through the devotional with her.
Each day is spoken in a particular Brave Girls voice, and I saw their personalities coming through. For example, I think my daughter will relate most closely to Glory, the Brave Girl who enjoys beauty in creation, art, and fashion. Glorys devotions tie into to those themes. My daughter loves fashion, maybe too much sometimes. I think the devotion on January 2 will speak to her heart with Romans 13:14: You want to fit in, and you just know those boots, those jeans, or that shirt will help youBut there is something you can wear that will help you make good and true friendsthe attitude of Jesus.
I like the varied day-to-day format, which will hold my daughters attention. Some days are stories in the life of a Brave Girl. Some are contemporary retellings of Bible stories. Others are about making wise choices, whether its picking the best of two scenarios or filling out a true/false quiz. Once per month, a Write It Out devotional gives your own Brave Girl a chance to jot down her thoughts and feelings. This book is interactive, always drawing your daughter back to the Bible.
This book is appropriate for girls ages 8 to 12. Its engaging content will inspire her faith and great biblically-based discussions. It is part of the Brave Girls series from Tommy Nelson, and I plan to check out more of the resources in this encouraging series for tween girls.

ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Christmas Present!October 31, 2016ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love this devotional for girls! It is the perfect gift for any young girl in your life. Not only is the cover appealing, but the pages inside are helpful and on target for the day to day struggles. This devotional is written by Jennifer Gerelds and Tama Fortner. It is part of a series published by Tommy Nelson centered around the Brave Girls including a Brave Girls Bible and other devotional books.
First let me say that I love the cover of this book! These girls (although cartoon) are beautiful and different. They don't all look and dress the same. In the introduction we get to meet each girl. Hope is a bit of a tomboy who likes to play football and dress up. Glory sees beauty all around her. Honor is super smart but feels out of place. Gracie is a new kid who had to leave her friends behind and make new ones. Faith is homeschooled which makes her different from all the girls.
Once you get into the meat of this 365 day devotional, you quickly see that the writers strive to include situations that are real to young girls. For example, being nervous about a test at school or an upcoming softball game, how to be a good friend, and even the right way to use the internet and social media. It is difficult for me to say what the appropriate age is for this devotional. If I had to put a range, I would say 6-10. My kids aren't allowed on social media, but they tend to be the exception.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher. I was not required to give it a positive review. All opinions are my own.
