DiscipleMom LauraTXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Choice for Helping Tweens Make Good Choices!June 29, 2013DiscipleMom LauraTXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Book Review: A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices by Elizabeth George
I've been a fan of Elizabeth George's Bible studies for a long time now, and when I saw her new book, "A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices," I knew it was a must-read. And now that I've read it, I'm buying my tween daughter a copy and studying through the book with her.
George's goal is to help girls after God's own heart learn how to make good, God-honoring choices. Straight away, George makes a connection between choices and the heart, using Proverbs 4:23 and Luke 6:45. She shows tweens how the heart affects attitudes how attitudes then lead to actions.
"A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices" is not just a good read. It's an interactive study in which girls are encouraged to answer questions, journal, write out action plans, and pray through the book as they learn keys to making good choices. And the book is full of Bible verses to help tweens see these aren't just an adult's idea of what good choices are--these are God's ideas.
The book includes some great features. In each chapter, George uses acronyms to help girls remember main points. Here's an example from the chapter on choosing what to say and what not to say. The letters in MOUTH stand for:
M- Make your words pleasing to God.
O- Out of your heart your mouth speaks.
U- Utter only what God says to say.
T- Truth is always the right thing to say.
H- Hurting someone with your words is wrong.
At the end of each chapter, tweens are encouraged to rewrite the statement for each letter of the acronym. Then George helps them pray through what they've learned from God's Word and plan how to obey.
In "A Girl's Guide to Making Really Good Choices," George covers all of the most important issues tweens face: choosing to get up each day, prioritizing God's Word and prayer, choosing friends, choosing what you say and don't say, choosing to have patience, choosing joy, choosing to be faithful, and choosing to trust God.
I highly recommend this book for tween girls and for moms, too! Even though it's written for a tween audience, there's so much biblical truth it's still applicable. And it's even better to study through it together as you disciple your girl on her journey to become a girl after God's own heart.
Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review. However, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
LandT5 Stars Out Of 5Really HappyJanuary 19, 2016LandTQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book for my daughters, age 8 and 10. My 8 year old picked it up and wanted to start reading it first. We read a portion together every night (because she is younger it helps that we read it together). She repeatedly tells me how much she loves this book! It doesn't have to be for a tween - start at any age because we can all use help making good choices! It makes a lot of sense!
jenilee220OhioAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5for girlsSeptember 5, 2013jenilee220OhioAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been looking for great books in this genre since my girls are coming in to the 8-12 age range. I was very pleased with the content, topics, writing style and applicability of this book.
The author did a great job of addressing each topic without saying too much.
The book encourages girls to learn more, to talk about things with someone they trust and to let God speak to the many different things they are facing in this season of life.
This is a book that I know my daughter enjoyed!
Nana5 Stars Out Of 5Love this book!!June 1, 2019NanaValue: 5Excellent book for young girls to learn what God expects of them. Fun and interesting way to read scriptures and fill in the blanks. Teaches great core values and how to deal with friends and make the best decision!! I love it and have given 2 of them away so far! One to an 11 year old and one to a 9 year old. Great for working on their own, and perfect for sitting down with them and talking thru as they answer!
