One of the things many people would say is lacking in our world today is LOVE.
It’s something we all probably try to do more of: Love others. But how can you truly and effectively do that if you’ve never really felt loved and valued yourself?
I was approached about reviewing a new devotional book by Zondervan for young women called Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women. The first thing that caught my eye when I opened the box was the gorgeous color. Dark navy blue, white, and light blue floral designs with gold leaf accents? Old-fashioned and beautiful. Just holding it in my hands made me feel it was a special book!
Inside I found exactly what it promised: A devotional for each and every day of the year. Each numbered day has its own page, and is announced with a whimsical blue bird that carries the banner showing the day. (There are no dates….just days numbering 1 to 365….so you can start at any time of the year….no need to wait until January 1st!)
A relevant Bible verse starts out the reading, and it’s followed by a real, honest, practical devotional excerpt to read, think about and ponder as you go about your day. At the close of each page is a handful of blank lines for you to jot down your thoughts or a simple prayer. The pages are thick and will hold up to inks.
This devotional will speak to young women relating to several different subjects: Dating, friendships, bullying, fear, freedom, self-esteem, and most of all, realizing how much you are loved and adored by your Heavenly Father.
I can’t think of anything that would make this devotional better other than maybe a ribbon attached to the spine to serve as a bookmark. (Those are always handy for me, at least!)
