Girl Talk: 52 Weekly Devotions by Lois Walfrid Johnson

gt

Description: As you grow up, a lot of new, sometimes strange, things start to happen, and it can be overwhelming. You have new responsibilities, new opportunities, and a whole new set of problems, and sometimes it can feel like no one but you can understand what it’s like to be you.

You’re not alone. This one-year devotional is filled with stories about girls who feel just like you. As you read their stories each week and fill in questions about how you think each girl should react, you’ll learn new ways to deal with the pressures around you, embrace the opportunities God has given you, and make choices that give you the opportunity to dream. Through prayer and journal exercises, you’ll also discover there is someone out there who knows exactly how you feel. And he’s more than ready to listen.

My Thoughts: When I was about 10 years old, I had a devotional called Angel in my Attic by Mary Lou Carney…it was my favorite devotional because it was so relevant to my life.The main character was facing a lot of the same issues that I was facing and I read it at least 5 times during my middle school/ Junior High years.  Now that I am the mother of a 10 year old young lady, I have been in search of a devotional that will help her through these moments of growing up. Girl Talk is just what I was looking for.

Each week begins with a story, focusing on a different issue and then there are questions for each day following that relate to the story. There is also scripture attached to the story and a prayer at the end. Some of the topics covered are shoplifting, materialism, modesty, greed, self-respect, and telling the truth.

The stories are interesting and relevant to what young girls face today. This will make a great devotional for those girls who are struggling to be in the world but not of the world. I highly recommend it for girls ages 10-15.

My Rating: 5 stars
