|ADORED by Lindsay A. Franklin|
With all the pressures of the world, the day-to-day stresses of school and other responsibilities, young women and teen girls will appreciate the encouragement offered in ADORED.
Each page begins with a scripture verse, followed by a short, but solid, devotion relevant for today’s young women.
Life issues such as dealing with insecurities, remaining sexually pure, and choosing to trust Jesus on a daily basis are just a sampling of the topics introduced, These are written with a Christian worldview and are consistently correlated with God’s Word.
One of the reasons I admire this book is because it isn’t full of fluff. The author, Lindsay Franklin, doesn’t use the weighty devotions to pull the reader down though. Rather, she presents the truth of God’s Word in an encouraging manner, inspiring young women to apply it to their lives.
At the bottom of each page, space is provided for the reader to journal her ponderings and praises.
I would have liked to see a concordance of some kind where the reader could easily locate devotions with encouragement on a specific topic, such as patience or showing compassion.
Overall, this is a wonderful book which I highly recommend. Its beautiful foil embossed hardcover and the inspirational truths it contains make it a wonderful gift idea for any young woman.

In fact, Zondervan kindly sent me a copy of the book to give away to one of my blog readers. They’re generous when they send books to me. They even pay the shipping. I like to pay that forward and pay for the shipping when mailing the books to winners from my blog. So there is never any cost to you. Just enjoy God’s blessings and then pass them on to others.
ADORED reminds us of how much God adores us and how we greatly adore Him. To have your name entered into the giveaway this week, comment below how you would answer this:
