*The Legend of the Easter Egg by Lori Walburg (illustrated by Richard Cowdrey)
This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Easter Egg renews the wonder and charm of the original timeless tale that explores the meaning behind Easter eggs and the Easter story itself. Written by Lori Walburg with vibrant artwork from Marley and Me illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, this holiday classic comes to life for a new generation.
Love this book, so cute and easy to read. My nieces will be able to comprehend this story as it is told.
*The Berenstain Bears Keep the Faith, by Mike Berenstain
Brother and Sister love science. But when their friend Ferdy Factual shares his questions about God creating the universe, the cubs are confused. A trip to see Preacher Brown helps them understand the meaning of faith.
Love the Berenstain Bears since I was a little girl and now I am able to passed it down to my neices, nephews and son.
*101 Bible Stories from Creation to Revelation (illustrated by Dan Andreasen)
Creation to Revelation: 101 Bible Stories is a collection of well-known and beloved Bible stories written for young independent readers and includes delightful illustrations.
Easy to read and comprehend stories from the Bible. Like the illustrations in the book too.
*All In Student Edition by Mark & Parker Batterson
The Gospel costs nothing, but demands everything. In this student edition of All In, bestselling author and pastor Mark Batterson explores the fact that if Jesus is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all. Through stories and examples, Mark shows you how to go all in when it comes to your faith—because no matter your age, it’s time to ante up.
Very easy to comprehend what God accepts from you even as a Adult reading it. I will be giving this book to my son when he turns 16 only 13 now. Straight to the point on what is expect from you.
*Gods at War Student Edition by Kyle Idleman
In this student edition of gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps us recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus Christ is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else like money or popularity. While these pursuits may not be the �graven images� of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you�re struggling with, the fear you�re dealing with, the lack of purpose you�re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.
Idols are everywhere in today’s culture and you truly do need to keep them out of your life. It points out Idol Id which asks you questions to see if you are doing what GOD wants. Also has a box about Choosing Jesus and why. I really like that part because it gives you the scriptures to find the answer.
*Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV (Hardcover)
The study Bible that’s just for girls! This Bible is filled with engaging features that will help you learn more about yourself and your relationship with God. Designed to encourage you to develop a habit of studying God’s Word, you’ll discover how relevant the Bible can be to your everyday life. Weekly studies and many of the side notes are also linked to the women’s study Bible, the NIV Women of Faith Study Bible, allowing you and your mom to share God’s Word together. Features include: Weekly Bible studies apply biblical truths to life Side notes address difficult passages and offer historical and cultural insights Journal captures other girls’ experiences or struggles along with space for you to record your own ‘I Believe’ statements of faith and foundational beliefs ‘Memory Challenges’ are verses worth remembering ‘If I Were There . . .’ include Bible stories that place you in the Bible character’s situation.
I like the weekly studies along with the links to the Women’s Study Bible. I do not have a girl so it wouldn’t work for me but for someone that has a daughter you would be able to do studies with your daughter. The Journal section on certain pages is great idea to do your own prayer journal to answer some of them.
