Truth & Dare: Devotions for Girls {Book Review}


Truth & Dare: One Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls
Are you ready for more-more excitement, more adventure, more fun?  Yeah?  Then take the dare!  Dare to discover the secrets to a life that sparkles for God.  You've got what it takes to make an impact on the world.  This just-for-you devotional is filled with powerful wisdom on everything from godly friendship and serving others to getting along with your parents and worshipping God.  It's advice for real life from the greatest BFF of all: your heavenly father.

Each day you'll read a few verses of Scripture and discover some awesome truths.  Then you'll be challenged to live it out with exciting dares that can change your life and fun quizzes to keep it all real.  It's your time to shine as a girl who knows what it means to live a fierce and fearless life of faith.  {From the back cover}



My Thoughts:  Each day starts with reading a couple of verses of Scripture, then a short lesson that goes along with the Scripture.  After the lesson there is a 'dare' that goes along with the lesson.  Some 'dares': 'Thank God even for the tough days' and 'Love your Christian family'.  To help the lesson stick, Ms.Hovsepian includes a 'triple-dog dare', which is three more 'dares' that include praying, writing down verses, etc.  She ends most days with a journaling activity, where you can record how the dares went that day and what you learned.

Most girls have played truth-or-dare with friends and by incorporating this game in Truth & Dare, girls have a fun way to strengthen their relationship with Christ.  Each day Ms. Hovsepian has chosen a lesson that can easily be applied to a 9-12 year old's life.  The 'dares' give you something to think about, but they aren't so 'random' that they can't be easily done.

I give this devotional a 5 out of 5.
