Devotions for the God Girl

Author: Hayley DiMarco
Publisher: Revell
October 2010
ISBN: 978-0-8007-1950-0
Genre: Inspirational/devotions

DEVOTIONS FOR THE GOD GIRL is a really excellent devotional to help you become the woman God intended for you to be.

There are 365 devotionals in this beautifully bound hardcover book, one for each day of the year. Each devotional begins with a verse, then the author finds a key point (which is printed in bold) and then ties the verse in. It ends with another thought (in bold) and an application to tie into your life. The devotions are about a page long.

These devotions are deep, and spiritually impacting if you spend time thinking and praying about them, and will help turn you into a God girl.

The only things I don’t like about this book, is that the devotions aren’t dated. They start out with 1, 2, 3…etc, but then they continue on 33, 34, 35, and so on, so you really have to know what day of the 365 days of the year you are on to know which devotional to read. Also, I think a ribbon bookmark would make a great addition. I was using a paper one to keep my place and it easily became dislodged.

I used this book in family devotions (even with my sons), in addition to reading through them on my own, and then asked for everyone’s opinion. Everyone gave it high marks, as one of the best devotionals we’ve had the privilege of reviewing.

If you are looking for a new devotional then DEVOTIONS FOR THE GOD-GIRL is definitely a book you’ll want to consider. Highly recommended. Verses for quick relief are referenced at the back of the book. $15.99 hardcover. 360 pages.

Lovely blog Laura and very interesting interview. I like the way Roxanne has 2-3 books on the go to read. Somehow I didn't think of authors reading books.

All the books on your blog sound great - wish they were in our local library!
