Teen Girl Devotional Review #hsreviews #devotions #DevotionsForYoungWomen #Beloved #books #reading #bookstagram #christianity #faith

This year has gone by so fast and with the calendar year almost over so is the Homeschool Review Crew year. Even with the Crew year closing, Beloved: 365 Devotions For Young Women from Zondervan will last all next year.
Beloved: 365 Devotions for Young Women
Beloved is a 384-page hardback book a little over 5"X7".  It has 365 daily devotionals geared toward young women. Each daily devotional has a scripture verse at the top of the page printed in red with a devotional printed in black underneath. At the bottom of each page are a few lines where you can take notes or write your thoughts and prayers. The margins of each page are pink with a red flower pattern that is very pretty.

The scriptures used throughout the book are all about the women of the Bible. Deborah, Rahab, Naomi, Hannah, Esther, Martha, and Mary are just a few of the women we look at but there are also devotionals for a wife of noble character, the woman at the well, queen of Sheba, and the Proverbs 31 woman, and many more. After reading the scripture the devotional text talks about what is going on and what young women can do to either apply those traits to their own lives or why they should try to keep those things from entering their minds and hearts. They look at women's accomplishments and their sins.

The front of the book discusses the wife of noble character and then there are a few other days that discuss the "ideal woman". The devotions look at this character and talk about her qualities we can apply to our lives even if we aren't' married. Later in the book, we see the relationship between Naomi and her daughter-in-law and how we should have good relationships with our in-laws, teachers, and bosses. The end of the book looks at Galatians 3:28 and discusses how even though we are all different and are in different situations in our lives we can all one in Jesus.

Since my girls are older they have been using Beloved on their own. We actually have two copies, one for Delaney and one for Alaina. They have added this to the daily devotions they already do every morning. It only takes a couple of minutes for them to read through the verse and the text. Even though they only take a few minutes a day to read there are some great topics that make it easy to remember. I like how these devotionals show my teens how they can apply things they read about in their own lives even if they aren't in the exact situation the Bible woman was in.

Beloved Teen Devotional Review #beloved & #FlyBy

Before my kids could even read I started having them sit down with their picture Bible to think about the story that was there and to pray by themselves. As soon as they learned to read I had them read a page in a very easy beginner Bible. I wanted them to get in the habit of taking time out of their day to spend in God's word and prayer. We recently received Beloved 365 Devotionals For Young Women for one of my girls to use.

This hardcover devotional obviously has 365 daily devotionals. Each page has colorful flowers going down the sides. The Bible verse is in reddish print and the encouraging devotional is directly under it typed in black. There are also lines at the bottom where you can write your thoughts or take notes.

These devotions are geared to females. They discuss girls and women of the Bible that you can gain wisdom and inspiration from. Studying these women will help you keep God in the forefront of your mind. The Bible verses chosen are about Abigail, Ruth, Tamar, Elizabeth, and other women. After reading the verse the devotional talks about what is going on in the text and how we can relate it to our lives. Beloved is geared for young women, but any women can be encouraged by reading them.

I really like this devotional because it is showing my girls women that they can look up to and learn from how they lived and maybe they can use them as an example for their own lives. I think sometimes we miss what these women did in the Bible because we are more focused on the story not on the individual women.
