This book is a 90 day devotional (actually 86 specified days) geared toward girls. Honor and Faith are two girls who “wrote” this book with the purpose of remembering that God sees the bigger picture. There are six sections in the book. Each day starts with a scripture verse and ends with a Prayer Pointer (which is a one line prayer that applies to the reading).
Section 1: Truth Detectives— Each day in this section has a Lie that girls believe and the Truth based on scripture. An example of a Lie and Truth are: “I need to have money to be happy” and the Truth is “God not only meets our needs–He’s what we need most!” There is a paragraph or two under both the lie and the truth that helps explain them.
Section 2: Bible Beauties and Beaus— Each day in this section talks about a woman or man in the Bible who God used in a great way. For example, Hagar–The One Who Was Seen & Josiah– The King Who Repented.
Section 3: Divine Design– This section talks about a variety of subjects that show how God’s designed the world around us. Examples include: the platypus, pearls, and chocolate. There is also a baking recipe and instructions for a craft in this section.
Section 4: Body Builders– Each day gives instructions for practical ways of building the reader’s faith and how the reader can encourage others.
Section 5: Character Quest– This section has thought provoking questions related character traits that brave girls will want to cultivate in their lives. For example, courage, truth telling, love, and peace.
Section 6: Mind Games–This section includes instructions to a game, cross word puzzles and an opportunity for the reader to insert her name throughout 1 Corinthians 13 (the Love chapter).
All six of these sections end with a question(s) and space to journal the answer.
I reviewed a different devotional book several months ago with the purpose of trying to find a devotional that was age appropriate for my 8 year old daughter. I thought that book was too advanced for my daughter so when the opportunity to review this book came, I was hopeful that it might be what I was looking for. It was! I am pleased to say that it is perfect for my daughter. She has already started reading it and loves it! I think a 90 day devotional is also a lot less overwhelming than the 365 day book. I think that the devotionals are simple enough for an early chapter book reader to understand but still thought provoking. This will be a good introduction to a daily devotional routine. I would say that this book is for girls who are 7-8 years old through the pre-teen ages.
