Whatever, a FaithGirlz Devotion by Allia Zobel Nolan

From the Back of the Book:

Did you know you can totally change your life by changing your thoughts? Well, you can, and WHATEVER can get you started. With examples based on girls just like you, each of these 90 devotionals will show you how to fill your head and your heart with virtues taken straight from Philippians 4:8, helping you grow closer to God and the totally abundant life he intended for you. Girls will learn how to shut out gross, crude, impure, stupid, and just plain dumb "stuff," that leads to sin and estrangement from God and substitute what's true, noble, pure, lovely, admirable, praiseworthy and excellent. What's more, this book will help girls look at the word WHATEVER in a fresh, new, and exciting way, so they'll be able to live the 4:8 life, 24/7!

My Thoughts:

Seriously, I LOVE the books you find in the FaithGirlz line!  I have a shelf-full of them, and no young girls to share them with, as all of my girls are adults now.  But the truth packed in each book, whether fiction or non-fiction, is worth reading at any age.

When I found out my dear favorite author and friend Allia Zobel Nolan was writing a devotional for FaithGirlz, I was totally on board.  Then I received a complimentary copy and was floored!

First of all, the concept, highly appealing...I mean, who doesn't say "Whatever" and mean it, right?  But Allia builds her book around Philippians 4:8, one of my all-time favorite Scripture passages, and one desperately needed these days.  Each section of the devotional is built around 'whatever is pure, noble, etc.', and is packed with great passages and excellent thoughts on the daily Bible reading.

Plus, the language the book is written in speaks to a young girl's heart.  It isn't over-the-top, try-to-hard-to-relate-to-me language...rather, an 'I-get-you-and-I-see-your-heart' style of writing.  I could hear the words inside my head as if Allia were having a heart-to-heart conversation with me.

And the teaching in each daily devotional?  SOUND.  WISE.  APPLICABLE.  In other words, worth investing your time in taking the time to read "Whatever".  I love this book!

I received a complimentary copy of "Whatever" from Zonderkidz, a division of Zondervan, in exchange for an honest review.  Allia's new devotional book, "Whatever" is a perfect fit with the high quality I've come to know and trust in the "Faithgirlz" brand. 

Christmas is coming, and the new year it just around the corner.  Why not help start it out on a high note by purchasing a copy...or two...of "Whatever" and putting it under the tree this year?  Highly recommended.
