Review: Adored Devotions for Young Women

Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women has an important message for young ladies. The message is simply that they are never alone. They are loved by their Creator God and He is always with them. He will never fail them, and His grace is always available. I've looked through this devotional and although it states that it is intended for teenage girls, I believe my 11.5 year old daughter is ready for it. The devotions are short, but meaningful - covering aspects of godly womanhood, grace, honesty, godly love, and so much more than just dealing with mean girls at school.

The book itself is small - a hardcover that's a little wider than most paperback books. The cover design and page edges are elegant and lovely, perfect for a maturing young lady. The daily devotions each begin with a Bible verse, the accompanying devotion varies from 2 - 3 paragraphs in length, never exceeding one page of the book. There are a few lines at the bottom of each page to add a prayer, notes on how the devotion applies to their life, or a Bible verse.

My daughter is just a few months from turning twelve and I'm going to put this devotional into her hands to begin on January 1. It's exactly what I would have needed at that age, and many of the messages in it are still the reminders I need today. Thank you Zondervan for publishing a meaningful devotional for pre-teen and teenage girls.
