I received a copy of this book from Family Christian. All thoughts are 100% mine.
For many adults, we don't realize what the teenagers in our lives go through. The struggles they deal with on a regular basis, or the temptations they have which are far different than when we were younger, let alone finances, peer-pressure and the stress that comes with being in high school. It is a hard world out there. God's Word is often skimmed over so they can get on with school or the chores for that day. That is why I love a book like this one here, Junior: Making Sense of It All. This is a 30 day devotional book by Lars Rood that makes it easy to spend time in the Bible.
I personally read through most of this devotional myself. But I also had my younger sister, who is 16, read some of it and give her thoughts. Her little info is below:) I really liked the format they used for this book and how it is split up for the day. It is sectioned into parts such as Do You Know Who You Are(at school, church, home, etc), Who Do Others Say You Are(your classmates, coaches, teachers, siblings, pastor.) and Who Does Jesus Say You Are(you are redeemed, forgiven, etc)? There is a small section for each day that has a lesson in story, questions for you to answer and think about, as well as what the world thinks about that subject. Then it ends with an act(a small assignment to apply for that day) and a Bible reading.
Personally I see a devotional book like this as being helpful for teenagers. Some might not feel comfortable doing their own reading and I think the teachings would be great as an extra tool.
M's THOUGHTS-I like having a book like this which gives some explanations to certain things. I found it to be easy to read and understand. My favorite part would be the act area. This draws the lesson into your everyday daily life in a way I haven't seen in other devotional books. It deals with the younger people on a different plane and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
