Now that my daughter has officially entered the tween stage in her life and is asking more questions, having more thoughts and feelings; she needs a place to get answers, to feel validated and to be able to write her thoughts and feelings on life.
The Plans I Have For You Devotional with accompanying Journal is the perfect solution. My daughter has really been enjoying waking each morning to read the days devotion and then to use the journal to either write her thoughts down or to draw her feelings. She really loves having the option and it’s a easy way to get your children into the habit of doing a daily devotional.
From a parents perspective, I found the devotional to be easy to read and beautifully illustrated. Each days devotion is very short and to the point, leaving no excuse for her not to complete each days reading. She was needing something to help her deal with the new emotions that come with being a preteen and dealing with difficult social issues in grade 5. I’m very glad that we have had this opportunity to review this devotional as it’s been needed.
The look of peace on her face when she talks about reading the devotional and using the journal made this moms heart feel good.
