Book Review: The One Year Mother Daughter Devo

Are you looking for a way to connect spiritually to your tween/teen daughter? Then get your hands on The One Year Mother Daughter Devo by Dannah Gresh with Janet Mylin. This devotional helps mothers connect with their daughters through a daily biblical passage along with an activity or discussion to make the passage applicable to their lives.

The passages often have short stories that provide open discussion on issues pertinent to young people today while inserting Christian values. Each day has a “Girl Gab” instructing the mother or daughter to discuss topics as simple as your favorite animal to what it was like when the mother was growing up. Sometimes, it may even be an activity such as painting your toenails bright pink together! The book also includes some simple craft activities that anyone is capable of doing as well as a few recipes.

Although my daughters are still very young, I have had a lot of work experience with teen and preteen girls. I feel the bond between any mother and daughter who reads this together will definitely be strengthened. It will bring them joy, laughter, understanding of themselves and compassion for the world around them. In essence, it will open their eyes to a new way of living.

Disclosure:  Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book for review.
