Book Review: Faith Girlz Promises for You

Detailed / adult/ mandala coloring is the latest trend in activities and hobbies that has now spread to the devotional market.  FaithGirlz has published one particularly for girls ages 8-12 (though I think teens would love this as well).  

A beautiful hardcover book with high quality, thick pages, the Promises for You: Coloring Devotional is a charming and eye catching devotional.  I have not yet seen a quality coloring devotional as nice as this one.  There are 60 verses and thoughts complete with their own coloring page and journal area. The verses point tween girls to an all knowing, powerful, loving God while leading the direction of recognizing our human weakness and need for a Savior.  The written prompts and questions lead to some great questions and options for journal response.  Because of the high quality, I could see girls using this book multiple times, finishing coloring pages over time or flipping back through to enjoy their colored pages and verses from days past.
The illustrations are varied, but all wonderful works of art.  Plenty of room to color and make it unique to their own, girls will find connection and enjoyment on every page.

This devotional is beautiful and of high quality.  It would make a fabulous gift.  If I was looking for something to nitpick it would be that many of the verses to do not have context shared within the contemplative portion.  Removing context can make the verse lack its full meaning or easily then be taken out of context.  

Overall, I highly recommend this devotional book for any older girl or even teen.  (Hey, I might even join my daughter in the fun!)

*I received a copy of the devotional in exchange for my unbiased review.
