"Just Sayin'" by Carol McAdams Moore {Pre-Teen Week!}

{Welcome to Pre-Teen Week! Every quarter we’re going to try to do a full week dedicated to finding great Christian books for girls ages 8/9-12 every week day! This is Day Four of this quarters’!} {Day One Here!} {Day Two Here!} {Day Three Here!}

About this book:

  “Soft heart, hard heart, which R U? Throwing stones? No! Stop the rocks. Silver, gold---B.L.I.N.G. That is Y-O-U in God s eyes. Just Sayin’ isn’t your typical 90-day devo for girls. It’s an all-out open space for you to explore and learn more about yourself and your faith. Prompts get your mind thinking, ideas flowing, and help turn your thoughts and emotions into dynamic doodles and more! Each of the short, single-page devos were designed for girls just like you, with relevant topic, quotes, Scripture, plus doodles, journal prompts, lists, puzzles, quizzes, fill-in-the-blank prayers, and unique activities that explore Bible truths and ways to apply them---everyday. Just Sayin’ challenges girls to follow Jesus every day. Best. Idea. Ever.”

Series: There is also a boys’ version called “Dare U 2 Open This Book”.

New Teens-
Early High School Teens-
(and a half)
Older High School Teens- 
My personal Rating-
{There is a Devo about not swearing, but nothing about purity, making it fine for girls ages 10+}
This is almost like a younger, Christian version of “Wreck This Journal”. There was places to color, doodle, glue pictures & flowers, draw, sprinkle glitter and paint! Written in “text talk” makes this Devo good for this generation (‘RU’, ‘no prob’, ‘fave’). “Just Sayin’” is for the artist-y Pre-Teen who loves all things crafts! (Oh! Bonus: Maybe if their Mom or older sister does a Journaling Bible!) I think my favorite devotional was #27 about Matthew 19:24, there’s a picture of an (animated) camel and a needle with the capital “not gonna happen”. While I, personally, was a little disappointed that the Scriptures were in NIV (‘H’s are not capital when referring to God) this was a fun 192 paged devotional that I think many girls will like!

See y’all Tomorrow with the last Pre-Teen Week review!
