Devotionals for Tweens

Devotionals for Tweens / Preteens

I've had the privilege of reading not one, but two fabulous devotionals for tweens lately! I think this is a particularly hard age to target when it comes to spiritual matters, so for me to recommend a devotional that I would actually purchase and use with my own child is kind of a big deal.  These books are both solid.  They are Bible based and fun to read while still being relevant.  


The Smart Girl's Guide to Mean Girls, Manicures & God's Amazing Plan for Me by Susie Shellenberger & Kristin WeberThe Smart Girl's Guide to Mean Girls, Manicures, & God's Amazing Plan
by Susie Shellenberger & Kristin Weber
published by Shiloh Run Press


The Blurb


This book challenges young Christian girls as they navigate the challenges of life.


My Two Cents


First things first, this book, in my opinion is suited more to tweens instead of teens.  My daughter is 11 and it is perfect as far as content goes.  It pairs Biblical truth with practical advice and speaks to the heart of young girls.


You're God's Girl by Wynter Pitts You're God's Girl
by Wynter Pitts
published by Harvest House Publishers


The Blurb


This devotional helps girls see the unique beauty of who God made them to be.  They will be blessed as they absorb the power of God's promises.


My Two Cents


I had the honor of meeting Wynter Pitts at the Declare Conference last year.  She is a gem.  I loved her previous devotional, For Girls Like You, and more importantly, so did my girl.  We patiently waited for You're God's Girl to come out and it did not disappoint! The individual devotions show tweens that God made them unique and that they should embrace who they are in Him.

Chase the Lion by Mark Batterson #chasethelionIt's Monday...and after a LONG weekend of allergies, I'm ready for a clear-headed week!  I'm still reading sections of Mark Batterson's newest book, Chase the Lion, and I am obsessed with it. Lots of meat and application.  It definitely makes you think!


It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover


...AND my book club meets this Wednesday.  I haven't read the book yet, so it looks like I'll be binge reading It Ends With Us tonight and tomorrow!  Lol.  One day, I'll get it together, y'all!



Made Well by Jenny Simmons #madewellbookI'm also hoping to get into Jenny Simmons' newest book, Made Well.  I've read a bit and it's bound to be fabulous. Seriously.

THREE grown up books, can you believe it?!
