Growing up Believing

I requested this book for my cousin as a Christmas present and I really think she'll like the format of the book. She is currently 13 years old and she's in 8th grade. She's at that pre-teen, early teen age and she is very impressionable. I think this book is really geared towards young girls because it guides girls through the Bible with practical life applications.

Many times, a devotional book will have a story and then a verse at the end. I like how at the end of each place, there is a "Girl Talk" section and a "God Talk" section. It feels more down to earth because the Girl Talk sections reach out to readers and uses that story/passage to relate to them.

Beauty of Believing combines the talents of Faithgirlz! authors Tasha K. Douglas, Mona Hodgson, Kristi Holl, Lois Walfred Johnson, Allia Zobel Nolan, and Nancy Rue, and their words of wisdom will help your faith bloom and flourish as you grow into the girl God wants you to be.

Featuring 365 days of wisdom from your favorite Faithgirlz! authors, as well as quotes and questions from real girls like you, this devotional offers pages of inspiration on everything from navigating friendships, to taming the tongue, to trusting God in everything, big and small. Growing up can be tough, but Jesus is guiding you every step of the way.
