Adored : 365 Devotions for Young Women by Lindsay A. Franklin
In an ever-changing world, we can be certain of one thing: we are beloved by God. Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women tackles tough topics girls face, from bullying and social media to friendships and dating, all the while showing readers how infinitely precious they are in God’s sight. (From the Publisher)
This daily devotion presents verses for 365 days. The days are numbered from one to three hundred and sixty-five so readers can start any day of the year. Each day presents a verse from the bible covering a variety of subjects such as bullying, self worth, racial tension, etc. that many young women face in today’s society. After the bible verse a short paragraph or two discusses the specific verse going deeper into the verse, relating it to today’s young women. The common theme of all of the verses in this devotion remind the reader that they are loved by God.
This book can be given to young teens and older teens with topics that both ages can relate to and learn applications to their life. Many young Christian women today are looking to go deeper in the word and this book will help them do that. Many high school students, especially seniors, wrestle with decisions that are making every day. An example of how this devotion really helps young girls apply the word in their daily is day 38. The verse (1 Corinthians 10:31) is at the top of the page and then Lindsay walks the reader of how to make daily decisions by evaluating the options and eliminating those choices based on the truth (Word) that they have been learning. She makes the reader understand that as humans we will make mistake in choices but in her words, “But we can honor God in our choices.”. Highly recommended for young women who are wanting to be challenged in their walk. Give this devotion to young women who are yearning to get deeper in the word and do not know were to start.
