God's Promises for Girls

  Years ago, I discovered my first Bible Promise book.  Full of verses for every need, I used the book to find the perfect verse to claim for my circumstances, to uplift a friend, or even to put in a birthday card.  Having given away several Promise books over the years, I was excited to find God's Promises for Girls by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker.  From the beautiful illustrations to the choice of topics & scriptures, this is a fantastic resource for young girls.  

The cute picture on the cover of the book is a great representation of what the inside holds for little girls.  My daughter, who just turned 8, flipped through the entire book exclaiming over the pictures as she read the verses.  On every page, a beautiful illustration captures the theme of each section, making the book fun even for pre-readers.

Promises for Girls is arranged into sections that reflect a little girl’s heart.  Each section includes three to four well-chosen verses from the International Children’s Bible.  Scriptures are easy to read and to understand for little girls, while still reflecting the traditional verse.  From “God’s Promises When You Live Like His Princess” to “God’s Promises About Being a Good Sister” to “God Wants You to Keep Dancing!” your little Princess will find a verse to encourage and comfort her.  The book’s final section, “God Promises to Save You” includes verses reminding little girls that all they must do is believe in Jesus to be saved. 

One of my favorite parts of the book is the short poem at the beginning of each section.  These four line verses bring the topic closer to home for a little girl—reaching for her heart and explaining the relevance and importance of the verses to her life in a simple, fun way. 

God’s Promises for Little Girls would make a perfect gift for any little girl!

I like books like that. I just heard of something you might like for her when she gets older. It's a homeschool curriculum for teen girls called Far Above Rubies, aimed at presenting God's word as it applies to young women. That's about all I know of it though.

I've heard of Far Above Rubies. I'm excited about the homeschool group we'll be a part of in TX. They have a Girl Scout-like group that is faith-based. So, in addition to doing crafts, learning skills, etc, they are learning how to be Godly women. So COOL!
