Synopsis: Come Experience It for Yourself. . . Life Is Good with a God Who Is Great!This topically guided creative journal for teen girls offers inspiration and encouragement for those who desire to live their lives fully devoted to Christ. Amidst the loud, confusing voices of the world, trying to tell them which way is the right way to go, girls need to stop, rest, refuel, and reflect in the presence of their truest Friend and most loyal heavenly Father. Whether it’s through creativity, meditating on scripture, prayer, or writing, readers will join young author and artist, Marjorie Jackson, for a time of life-giving fun, faith-strengthening encouragement, and God-glorifying growth. As girls connect with their first love, Jesus, they will begin to understand that life is truly good with a God who is absolutely great!
Review: This journal is marketed as a 30-day journal for teen girls. However, as a 57 yr.-old woman, I found it inspirational and instructive...and I'm using each section as a five-day study. The journal prompts are especially helpful in applying the scriptures to your daily life. Topics discussed include relationships (friendships, family), identity, God's authority, prayer, reading the Bible, etc. At the end of the book, there are 9 pages with simple borders to “Create Your Own Hand-Lettered Scripture Art.” The book looks a little bland when you first look through it, but once the reader colors some of the pictures and writes about the journal prompts, there will be a lot of color, and each book will be unique.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
