When our daughter was old enough to be interested in a personal devotional or Bible study, we really had a difficult time finding books that were appropriate for her interests and had enough Bible without being too “preachy”. Even though our daughter is now in college, I’m always looking for books to suggest for great personal devotionals during those upper elementary and middle school years.
So, I was interested when offered the opportunity to review the new devotional book Girl Talk, Guy Talk by Jesse Flores and Karen Whiting. The book is marketed as 50 devotionals for both guys and girls on a variety of communication topics. The entries alternate, with one for girls usually followed by one for guys on a similar topic. The topics cover just about any type of communication question or problem a young person may face. Although the authors don’t really mention a target age for readers, some of the topics suggest it was written with older teens in mind.
