Synopsis (Book Blurb):

You're on the path to becoming a God Girl.

Here's a daily map to guide each step.

The God Girl is always on a journey to becoming the woman God created her to be. That means that every day, the God Girl needs time with her Creator to reflect on where she's been, where she's at, and where she's going.

Devotions for the God Girl is your daily guide to choosing God's way in every area of your life - from your thoughts and actions to your friends and faith. Each day of the year you'll hear from God through his Word. Plus you'll read a bfeif reflection from Hayley DiMarco that unpacks spiritual truths about becoming a woman of God.

You're already on your way.


As many of you know, I'm always looking for good devotional materials for my daughters. When I got the opportunity to review this 365 day journey from Hayley DiMarco I was really excited. This is a full year devotional that is designed for Tweens and Teen girls. My daughters are 10 and 12 and it's definitely right up their alley.

DiMarco explores many different issues that young girls face on a daily basis. With a scripture reference from the Bible and a reflection from the author for each day, girls will become closer to God by being in his presence every day. Daily devotions is an important part of any young Christian's day. DiMarco uses bold-faced key points to show the reader what the important theme from each devotion is. I believe this devotional is very easy to use and understand and it will be a big help with issues young girls might not know what the Bible says about.

Both of my daughters really enjoyed this one and I thought it was perfect for them. It even had reflections on some of the issues they are facing right now including, personal responsibility and issues with un-saved friends.
