My personal Rating-

I’ll admit that I was a bit disappointed that the ‘H’s weren’t capital when referring to God, but even with that, this was a great devotional. Written in only pink text & colors, “More for Girls Only! Devotions” had great lessons. Each Devo had a main Scripture, then a story/lesson with an illustration, a check-up time (a simple quiz on how you’re doing on the topic), how you can improve and lastly, five more Scriptures and three famous quotes. (Like, quotes by Corrie Ten Boom, past presidents, Helen Keller, and C.S. Lewis to name a few. There was also a couple of quotes by Gandhi, which I thought was strange.) In the 60 Devotionals in this book, only a handful seemed geared specifically towards public school girls. The illustrations are really cute as well. Philippians 4:8 is also quoted, so that just made this Devo even better. ;)

See y’all Tomorrow with a new Teen Week review!
