Most Christian teens don't know how to pray. And when they do pray, they don't know how to discern God's voice. In Girl Talk With God, author Susie Shellenberger shows teens how to pray and challenges them to deepen specific areas in their lives through a series of conversations between God and a teenage girl. As editor of Brio magazine, a Focus on the Family publication f ...more

I read this book a few years ago. I had just entered the teenage world, and this book opened my mind to think what is prayer exactly. I'm not praying to a wall but to a live Person who loves me. God does want a relationship, and this book reminded me as such. I recommend this book to all girls of all ages!!! (Even if you're 90!)

Girl Talk with God helped me learn a lot about prayer. It is written in conversation form between a teenage girl and God which helped me understand that prayer is not just one way but two. God wants to hear about every part of our lives not just "my needs/wants list." It's a relationship. God cares and desires to hear from you.

"...It's actually all about talking to Him and listening to Him talk back." reads the front cover of this book. In twenty-three compact chapters ranging in subject from persecution to forgiveness to reaching out to others, Susie Shellenberger illustrates her point. Prayer doesn't have to be a one-way conversation.

Written in a short, non-stuffy, simple style that appeals to teen girls with little extra time on their hands, this book is an invitation to radically transform your prayer life into a

Girl Talk With God presents a wholesome perspective for young girls on difficult subjects like divorce, premarital sex, eating disorders, pornography and masochistic cutting. Other subjects include choice of language, modesty, getting married, and the impact of social media on reputation.

Written as an ongoing dialog between God and a young girl, this book inspires young girls to develop healthy attitudes about themselves. It addresses real issues with Biblical solutions.

As soon as I laid eyes on this book I couldn't wait to get it. I happen to love devotionals, and couldn't wait to start this one. I must say, it wasn't quite what I expected... It was a very easy quick read. But I didn't come away with a wealth of information or wisdom. But it was a good reminder that God is always there, as our Friend, our Daddy, and we can talk to Him about everything and everything!

Susie Shellenberger did something I've never seen done in a book before. Throughout the whole

This book is aimed at tween and teen girls who find it difficult to talk with God. Each chapter is a conversation between God and a girl on a particular topic. The topics range from acceptance by peers and forgiveness to eating disorders and cutting. Some chapters discuss particular problems a teen might deal with; other chapters focus on emotions a teen might feel regardless of the situation.

What if you could have a regular confersatoin with God, a one on one talk about all the topics that influence a girls life today? while know you can tap into one with a girl from Omaha.

This was wonderful, some of the situations never happen to me because I'm homeschooled, so all the peer presure and bullying never affect me in the same way, but the God relationship relad issues were good.
Has a lot of teen content, but written in a very juvenile format with the words and tone of God coming across as sarcastic and flippant at times. I previewed this before buying for my girls and glad I did.

I like how this author put some versus up for the conversation. And it makes a girl talk to God easier somehow. It's like a prayer in everyday living. It sounds like the girl is talking with God at all times, in a fun way!
