Brave Girls 365-Day Devotional


I wanted to get The Brave Girls 365-Day Devotional from Tommy Nelson for my eight-year-old daughter Rose's Christmas.  It's just such a cute little powder pink book with sweet girly characters that I know she'll just love it.  This book is a hardcover with over 400 pages, but it's friendly and casual reading. 

I like that each of the Brave Girls characters are from very different family situations and ethnicities, but all of them are learning to be kind to one another and serve God just as they are.  One is even homeschooled!  Naturally, this is the kiddo who has the most trouble with going along with the crowd.  (Hey, as a mom?  I get why her mom thinks homeschooling is best for that child.)

I've also enjoyed reading the "Prayer Pointers" included with each day's devotional.  That's exactly what they are - pointers or things to consider thinking and praying about.  The book gives a sense of direction without smothering.  No one girl is presented as the "good" or "bad" child - we all of us struggle to do the right thing sometimes.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
