The Beauty of Believing 365 Devotions that Will Change Your Life by Nancy N. Rue, Allia Zobel Nolan, Lois Walfrid Johnson, Kristi Holl

Are you ready to blossom? Faith is like a flower. In order to grow, it needs soil, water, and sun-food for the spirit. That's just what this devotional is. Spiritual food to help your faith grow strong and beautiful. Featuring 365 days of wisdom from your favorite Faithgirlz! authors, as well as quotes and questions from real girls like you, this devotional offers pages of inspiration on everything from navigating friendships, to taming the tongue, to trusting God in everything, big and small. Growing up can be tough, but Jesus is guiding you every step of the way. Beauty of Believing combines the talents of Faithgirlz! authors Tasha K. Douglas, Mona Hodgson, Kristi Holl, Lois Walfred Johnson, Allia Zobel Nolan, and Nancy Rue, and their words of wisdom will help your faith bloom and flourish as you grow into the girl God wants you to be.


Each daily devotion in The Beauty of Believing begins with a Bible verse at the top of the page and then presents a story or narrative illustrating the topic. A highlighted box each day includes More to Explore, consisting of additional Bible verses relating to the daily topic. Then there's Girl Talk, an application section with self-reflection. Finally the box closes with God's Talk, offering a prayer idea incorporating the daily topic. Geared to tween and teen girls, the topics include common pre-adolescent issues of social cliques, self-doubt, and competitive striving. Since the contributors are Faithgirlz! authors, they are very familiar with pre-teen dynamics---friends who drift apart, slower developing bodies, wanting to be a believer when friends seem to act inappropriately, etc. Comparable devotionals include 365 Devotions for Girls by Band H Kids Editoral Staff and More For Girls Only! Devotions by Carolyn Larsen. Those who desire some art illustrations along with the Bible and prayers can consult 3-Minute Devotions for Girls by Janice Thompson. One advantage of The Beauty of Believing is that the layout of the narrative provides enough space to highlight and make brief notes. Another advantage is that Scripture quotations are from the New International Version (NIV), The Amplified Bible (AMP), New Living Translation (NLT), The Message (MSG), the New American Standard Bible (NASB), or New King James Version (NKJV), giving both a personal and varied approach.
