So this book is for you, the adored daughter of God. Adored by your parents, but more importantly, by the God of the universe. A daily reminder for a whole year of just how adored you really are.
Physical Book. This book is available in Kindle format, but I recommend the print version to utilize the journaling spots on each page. The book is sturdy and small enough to be easily portable in a backpack if desired. The graphics and layout are attractive and, in blue and gold, a nod to girls who are ready to graduate from bright colors to a more "mature" look.
Focus. I love how this book juxtaposes God's adoration of us with our adoration of Him. As we sing "O come let us adore Him" this season, the word "Adored" takes on fresh meaning. As we adore the greatness of who He is, His adoration of us becomes more significant. The breadth of topics is great - from Cookie-Monster-impatience to betrayal of BFFs to the use of the Internet to the concept of perfectionism, but that adoration of God remains a theme throughout.
Short and Sweet. As this school year progresses, our mornings get shorter and shorter. This is easy to fit in - I confess to reading it aloud sometimes as Miss School Girl puts on her shoes in a rush to get out the door. With a Bible verse to start, I know it's a great thing to insert in those busy mornings.
Relevance. I'm enjoying the book as much as my daughter is. The concepts are mature - for someone who already has encountered Christ and wants to progress in the relationship - but are presented in relation to every-day activities and concerns.
Start the new year knowing the young girl in your life feels adored by sharing this book with her! Better yet, share the journey with her and feel that sense of adoration for yourself...

Young women face daily challenges, anything from bullying over social media and in friendships and dating. Zondervan offers this beautiful hardcover book of devotions that target the daily challenges facing our young women. Each day speaks to the heart of the matter, paired with scripture, and a journaling area for further reflection.
One of my favorite devotions was Day 144 where Franklin quotes from 2 Timothy and goes on to speak about our feelings of self worth.
"Do you ever take a look at yourself - at all the areas where you feel inadequate or at all the times you've failed - and wonder why God would choose you?" (p. 152).
Franklin lets her reader know that God does not make mistakes and extends to us his grace in spite of our failures. At the end of this devotion, there is a small space to journal as the reader reflects on the questions "Whose path can you light today?"
This devotional wins the prize for the most beautiful illustrations and the most inviting graphics throughout the book. It will immediately grab the attention of the young women in your life. Each page is filled with deep Biblical truth.
I felt this book was targeted toward young women who were in their 20's and not so much my teenager. That being said, I think it's written for young women who are already aware of the stories in the Bible and the narratives therein. If a young woman is just starting her walk with the Lord, this devotional may be a great gift she will grow into.
I do recommend this book to young women who need to remember who they are in Christ. If you're new to Christianity, this devotional may not resonate well with you. Although, I don't recommend that you pass it up.
This makes a great gift for Christmas and or Thanksgiving. If you can contain yourself long enough, it's a great graduation gift.
