Review – Devoted: A Girl’s 31-Day Guide to Good Living with a Great God by Marjorie Jackson


I am very impressed with this devotional for teen girls and young women. I have been reading and studying through it as part of my quiet time. This guide is written in a straightforward manner, with some occasional humorous moments. It truly feels as if the author is speaking to you and offering guidance and suggestions. I appreciate that it is not full of “fluff”, but gets to the heart of important matters, including things such as “Why Read the Bible?”, “Guys”, “Picking Good Friends”, “True Purity”, and so much more.

My teenage daughter has also been reading through this devotional. She has expressed how much she likes it and plans to read it through multiple times. She compared the writing style of the author as being similar to discussing an issue with a trusted older sister. My daughter is seventeen and the author is nineteen, so this seems a great way to describe things. My daughter was happy that it was someone near her age offering suggestions and direction. She also liked the physical size of the devotional. It is easy to hold. She’s enjoyed doing a few of the coloring pages, as well.

I highly recommend this devotional for teens and even their moms, because it can lead to some very important discussions.
