Candid Devotions for Teens 26 Sept. 2010
By Jennifer Bogart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Sheri Rose Shepherd's book of devotions for teenage girls - His Princess Girl Talk with God - is a lovely gift for any young woman struggling with the pressures of the world. Sharing transparently from her own life, Shepherd deals with eating disorders, premarital sex, purity, parents, and much, much more through a lens of God's love for us as His daughters.

Broken into forty brief devotions, each is presented in three parts. Shepherd's own experiences on the topic at hand, an imagined love letter from God's perspective, and a scripture verse to tie everything together. If you condensed the text it would be around one-and-a-half small pages of text altogether, though it's broken up visually onto four pages per devotion.

Her approach is one that calls young women to both follow God's high calling for them, while also providing space for His grace and forgiveness when we fall. At times her personal stories are hilarious (walking off the end of a stage at her first beauty pageant) and are at other times heart breaking (her struggle with drugs following her shame over a teenage abortion) - so many are memorable.

The book is formatted perfectly for gift giving to a special young woman in your life who may need encouragement in her walk with Christ as she struggles against the pressures of this world. Even my seven-year-old was fascinated with the design of the book - vibrant hardcover filled with colorful pages (white with red text, pink with red text, and red with white text); she's asked me to save it for her for when she's older.

Because she tackles mature, tough issues, I would recommend this book either for tweens and young teens in a public school environment where those pressures are felt so much earlier, or those over fifteen if they are in a more sheltered environment such as being homeschooled.

A teen devotional that is actually biblical?!?! 10 Feb. 2011
By BookReview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a seminary student, and working in ministry, I review a lot of youth material for a national publication, and usually my heart sinks at the prospect of teen devotionals. The idea of devotionals are wonderful, but I have seen some terrible theology, and very simplistic moral teachings.

But this one... This one I love. Why? Well, the author shares her life story, her struggles with beauty and approval, and throughout the book there is a reconciliation between struggles and faith. It is beautifully written, with each chapter containing a story/thought issue, a verse and a love letter that God 'could' say to you. The last part is the part I was most nervous. Would this be fluffy, moral, niceness or would it also address the challenges to life that our faith presents. Thankfully it was the latter.

This book has no issue using words such as "obey," tackling issues of purity, beauty, wholesome talk... It speaks truth into the quiet moments of devotional life. Bible verses are in context, and the book is very readable. I was so impressed, I actually gave a copy to a youth....

This book is definitely for the teenage girl, rather than the pre-teen in my opinion. It covers relevant issues to the teenage years such as dating, sex, and body image.

Devoured Devotional 13 Jun. 2011
By Mom of 2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I purchased these as a closing gift for a group of 4 girls (grades 7 & 8) in a Purity Youth Group. I was looking for something that would speak to their hearts and continue to guide them in developing a personal relationship with their King, Jesus Christ. At this age it is easy to miss the mark and have the kids decide something is lame before even giving it a chance. The girls came from pretty diverse backgrounds, and all 4 to my suprise said that even though they knew it was a daily devotional, they each devoured it all in one evening. They could not put it down!! I think it makes God more personal for young girls. To realize that He loves them, and how all the things that bring them Joy, or saddness are important to Him. Their concerns are His concerns and that He is there for them. It also gives them guidance in how to behave as Daughters of the King. I couldn't be more pleased with how God has blessed these girls through this book!

Very Inspirational 28 Aug. 2010
By Nora A. Stlaurent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"...I have discovered God is not looking for perfect princesses and he loves us girls no matter what we wear, what we say, what we do, or how we feel. You don't have to earn His love or approval. He just wants to love you...How I feel about myself doesn't change my true identity in Christ."

This author shares from her heart in the note that correlates with a scripture she's picked for each chapter. The notes and scripture are a great reminder of how God views us. This author reveals testimonies from the heart that are honest and real. She writes in a way young girls can relate to. My daughter started reading this devotional and said she enjoyed the fact that Sheri is inspirational, real and helped her start out each day with hope and encouragement.

Sheri also has a love letter from God's lips to your heart! The letters are personal and based on scripture. Example, "My beautiful girl, I know your true identity is under great attack every day! Voices all around you tell you to become like the world and surrender who you really are...

Love your daddy in heaven"

Some of the titles for the devotionals in this book are The lie, We all fall down, My clothes revealed me, True beauty, The movie of life starts you, and What's the deal with how we feel?

I highly recommend this devotional for young women or anyone young at heart it's an inspiration for a women's mind, spirit and soul!

Wonderful devotional for young ladies 22 Aug. 2010
By Janna R. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I actually got this book for my daughter, Sarah (she turned 14 this week). I gave it to her and she just finished the 40 days of devotionals in it. I asked her what she thought and these were her responses...

* I actually understood it.
* The stories each day were true stories about her life, that was cool.
* Each day had a letter to me from God and I knew that she might have typed it but it was things that God wanted me to read.
* The Bible verse each day made a lot of sense to me because they were tied in with that day's story.
* If she wrote another one I would want to get it too.

I also wanted to point out that Sarah read each day's devotion and then posted the Bible verse on her Facebook page. We had a friend of mine tell us that she was following Sarah's daily verses, even though she doesn't go to church she was enjoying seeing what verse Sarah posted each day. I thought that was a great witness to Sarah that little things can make a difference. I was very impressed by how much Sarah enjoyed this devotional book. I'm looking forward to finding more like it for her now that she has shown the dedication to read this one!
