Secret Keeper Devotional by Dannah Gresh
Secret Keeper Devotional by Dannah Gresh is a companion to the Secret Keeper book by the same author. It is a daily devotional which focuses on the themes of modesty expounded upon in the book. So many things which abound in today's culture are opposite to a Biblical way of living -- this book does a great job of pointing many of them out. It calls teens to really check out what they are doing and how they are living and decide if it fits within a godly pattern of living as set forth in God's plan-book (the Bible). The format of the devotionals is a verse from the Bible and a topic for the day which is addressed in a narrative/teaching section and followed with questions for thought and application and some leading questions and a lot of blank lines for journaling on the topic.
This book is a great devotional tool for older teenage girls (I say "older" because I have a younger teen and I think some of the topics are just abover her at this point) truthfull, I think that it would be a great tool for a group of college aged young women. The topics are definitely timely and relatable. It's a good companion to the Secret Keeper book.
Another helpful feature of this book is the leader's guide in the end. This book is a good Bible Study tool for teens and the leader's guide makes it very easy for someone to run a Bible study using this book -- full of great ideas and ways to keep it to the theme. As a group study this book would give girls some very important ideas to think about and discuss as well as make decisions to utilize in their lives.
I certainly recommend this book when used with the accompanying book Secret Keeper (a few of the sections are much better understood having read the book).
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purposes of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
