Girl Talk With God by S. Shellenberger

There are so many things for teen girls to be reading; how many of them are listening to the Lord speak to them through Scripture? The easy-to-read dialogue format of this book encourages reading in short bursts, chapter by chapter. The topics are timely for today, and show how to talk to God and listen for His answers.

In flipping quickly through this book, I did not think I would like the format; however, I found it made it easy to read in quick little bits. The topics ranged from music to love to missions to sex, even to Facebook. There is one theme per chapter, which encourages focus on that idea. There are a few chapters of this book that would be appropriate for pre-teen aged girls, but several of the topics were more mature themes, such as cutting, sex, and eating disorders. I would recommend this for older teenaged girls. The topics were covered very gently and lovingly and gave a very good picture of how God can and will communicate on a personal level through Scripture. It's not a devotional per se, but certainly can enhance one's devotional interactions with God.

Disclosure of material connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review
