From teen blogger "A": I have a LOT of devotionals at home, but Sandra Byrd's One Year Be-Tween You and God is one of my favorites. Each day's devo opens with a question that a girl might ask about God, life, school, relationships, or another a topic, and in the body of the lesson, Byrd expertly unpacks the question while tying it in with encouraging Biblical truths. Each devo concludes with a well-picked Bible verse and a prompt for girls to think through or act upon.

Right off the top I will say this review will be nice, sweet and short.

I Loved this devotional! As the title say's it is for Be-Tween Girls (9 to 14). The cover is a gorgeous teal. The pages are beautifully illustrated. Each daily devotion is geared toward girls fears, joys and:

This review is months overdue, but that is because my daughter has actually been and still is using The One Year Be-Tween You & God Devotional for Girls by Sandra Byrd. I had become discouraged about reviewing devotionals for tween girls until I found this one, which I can highly recommend. In the mornings, we have done it together and she has done it independently...without being reminded most of the time. I even caught her reading through it in the afternoons.

First let me judge this book by i

It saddens me to see how much pressure there is on young girls to act a certain way, dress a certain way and be a certain way. Our tweens face challenging issues daily. Friends, peer pressure, media influences can leave these young girls confused uncertain. Sometimes they feel comfortable talking to their parents and sometimes they don't. And even when they do talk to parents, parents don't always know how to answer their questions. And even if they do, a reinforcement might be needed. And then, ...more

The One Year Be-Tween You and God Devotions for Girls is a beautiful devotional book, and it immediately captured my daughter's attention. The teal leather-like material makes it look and feel more grown-up than many other devotionals for young girls. It's well made, and the pages are sturdy so they won't tear easily. The small attached yellow ribbon bookmark is a nice contrast to the teal cover. It's a perfect fit for a young lady who is transitioning from a little girl to a young women.

I was thrilled to receive a copy of "The One Year Be-Tween You and God" devotional book for girls. As a mom of a teenage daughter, I am always on the lookout for great resources to help her grow in her relationship with Christ.

The book contains 365 devotions, one for each day of the year. Each devotional contains a "Dear God" question (written from the prospective of a "tween"); a "Consider This" devotional thought written by the author; a follow-up question; and a passage of Scripture. The scri

Back to school season seems to be the perfect time to begin some great habits in your children. One of the best habits to form is the daily study of the Bible. Sandra Byrd has put together a wonderful year long devotional book designed for your nine to fourteen year old girl.

From the teal colored leather cover to the daily devotional layout, I think your girl with find this book engaging. Each day is generically dated making it possible to start at any point in the year. There is a nice attache

I was lucky enough to be able to review The One Year Be-Tween You & God devotions for girls, by Sandra Byrd, this past month. I have been looking for something age appropriate for my daughter and me to do together and this devotional was perfect.

The devotional's weren't too long and the message was just deep enough to get her thinking. I even had my son sit in on it too and he got something out of most of them, they really applied to both. If you are a mother of a tween, then like me you have co

I received a complimentary copy of One Year Be-Tween You & God for review purposes and gave it to my 11-year-old daughter, Alli. She was immediately drawn to the look and feel of the book, but beyond the pure aesthetics, I have noticed that she is continuing to read it every day. When I asked her opinion, she said, “I like the wording.” When I pressed further, she explained that the devotions are easy to understand and she enjoys reading them. From a middle-schooler, I’ll take that as a five-sta ...more

The wisdom shared in soft whispers to a young girl as she searches for answers, or help, or hope found in this book is something I wish I'd had in my pre-teen years. 365 questions, quandaries, issues that almost every young girl will encounter in her life (and some answers I found most useful, even now) are given profound consideration and helpful suggestions as to how to address each one with kindness, godly wisdom yet maintain the natural boundaries of conscience and strength. All young girls ...more

Besides the point that the book has a beautiful cover and cute butterflies/flowers on the pages, it has the Word of God in it. A devotional book for tween girls a page for everyday of the year.

I have read a number of the devotionals for the days that they are written and will continue to use it as a devotional book throughout the coming year. Even though I am in my higher teens already.

I hope that one day my younger sisters and possibly daughter will be able to read this book when they reach the
