Book Review: Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist

Posted by Julie on May 13, 2017 in Book Review, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons |

In this heart-warming picture book designed for girls, author Glenys Nellist tells the inspiring stories of incredible women in the Bible. With beautiful illustrations by Rachel Clowes and sweet lift-the-flap envelopes, each story delivers a special message for children to open as they read their own personal love letters from God. Full of warmth and love, this picture book will fill girls’ hearts with the wonder of the Lord. The stories of Eve, Miriam, Esther, Mary, and many more will delight children and remind them of the bond they can share with God, just like the women of the Bible.

This is a colorful book for girls ages 4-8 that features Bible stories that will help them learn about the Bible, important women who are part of “His-Story,” and draw closer to God. The stories are more for the elementary age, but it makes for a good nighttime routine where a parent could read to the girl.

The illustrations are colorful and feminine, very attractive for a little girl. What sets  the book apart is each story has an envelope flap that the girl can open. It is a letter that can be addressed to the reader, and it is an encouragement from God. Just reading it for myself was a special experience. I could see where a little girl would see her name (if you filled it in ahead of time) and be excited to see what God has to say to her.

I think this is a great book for any girl’s library. If they are the younger side, they will appreciate being read to and looking at the pictures. For the older girls, the stories they can read themselves and the letters from God make this is a book they won’t forget.

I definitely recommend LOVE LETTERS FROM GOD.

I received this book from the publisher and the review is my own honest opinion.

Book Review: Liked by Kara Kampakis

Liked by Kara Kampakis

For many girls it starts early. The desire to be perfect. The need for approval. The longing for acceptance and being liked by a lot of people.

Thanks to social media, these desires now get channeled online. Girls can curate an image, build a following, and test-drive identities until they find one that draws attention and applause.But in this quest to be liked and noticed, girls often fail to feel loved and known. The result is a generation of girls who hunger for real and authentic relationships – yet are unclear on how to create them.

From popular blogger and bestselling author Kari Kampakis comes a powerful book for girls in the digital age. Designed to empower teens and tweens through the Christian faith, it’s packed with godly wisdom and practical advice related to identity, friendships, social media, and a relationship with God. 

Topics covered include:

  • Living for God’s approval, not human approval;
  • Cultivating a true identity;
  • Using social media wisely;
  • Building a positive reputation online;
  • Spreading kindness, love, and compassion;
  • Distinguishing online friends from real friends;
  • Building deep connections that last;
  • Handling rejection, criticism, and volatile emotions;
  • Activating your Christian faith; and 
  • Making an eternal difference, not a temporary splash.

For anyone exhausted by the quest to impress – and ready to rest in God’s unconditional love – Liked is the answer. Written succinctly with thought-provoking questions, it’s an ideal resource for a small group or youth group study, and a conversation-starter that will quickly unite mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends by speaking to the female heart.

This is a comprehensive look at how to successfully navigate the teen years when the world is pressuring girls to focus on being liked. It’s easy to read, full of practical, yet Biblical tips, discussion questions, quizzes, and more. I could see me going through this with my daughter, but it also is a great book to use with a small group. I see too many girls trapped in the lie that having likes and follows determines their love and success. I highly recommend LIKED to empower girls and speak truth into their precious lives.

Book Review: The NIV Holy Bible for Girls

NIV Holy Bible for Girls

NIV Holy Bible for Girls

The NIV Holy Bible for Girls, Journal Edition is the perfect way to apply Scripture to your everyday life. Designed with the thoughtful writer in mind, a whimsical cover and journaling lines inspire reflection in God’s Word. This Bible contains the full text of the bestselling New International Version (NIV) translation.

Features include:

Lines on each page for journaling and notes
Thick paper perfect for any writing utensil
A presentation page for gift giving
A “How to Use This Bible” page to get started on the right foot
Ribbon marker
The complete text of the bestselling New International Version (NIV)

The NIV Holy Bible for Girls has a lot to offer.  Space in the margins to journal. Pages that were made so that when girls journal, they won’t bleed through. A Ribbon marker to keep track of reading.

The one concern I have is that the Bible is recommended for girls ages 8+. I think it needs to be a little older. I think at that age girls still need a Bible with explanation and different takeaways. This is the full Old and New Testament, and I’m afraid the journaling aspect wouldn’t be as utilized as much as it could be because the girls will be too young to understand.

That’s my only concern in what is otherwise a beautiful Bible.

I received this Bible for review and the opinions expressed are my own.
