Brave Girls Devotionals - Review and Giveaway

I received books for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
My kids are in their tweens and teens.  With peer pressure surrounding them, what I have to say isn't always on the forefront.  Although they do fairly well with listening to my advice, I'm active in finding other ways to get them to build positive life skills and keep focused on God.
 
Although the books are primarily geared towards girls ages 7 to 11, I presented my 12 yoa step-daughter with the Brave Girls devotionals.  She's been delving into them daily and practicing the exercises from the book.  Each paperback devotional - Faithful Friends and Better Than Perfect - has engaging devotions for young girls to encourage and nurture.  Covered are friendly and easy-to-understand topics that resonate with today's girls.
 
Both books, Faithful Friends and Better Than Perfect, are supposed to include 90 devotions.  I noticed that was the case with Faithful Friends, but Better Than Perfect only had 86 days of devotions.  Both books are similar in their approach.  For each devotional day there is a new reading and exercise for girls to go over.  A scripture and a prayer is also covered during each day.  Several topics are covered.  For instance, one day the reader may learn about common lies and what the actual truths about them are.  The next day they may be asked to study a Bible verse and reflect on it.  Word searches, quizzes, and fill-it-in exercises are also all part of the books.  Faithful Friends and Better Than Perfect are much more than books; they are interactive materials to keep the mind busy, help girls reflect on their actions and behaviors, and teach about God's love and expectations.
 
Win It!

One person will win Brave Girls: Better Than Perfect book and Brave Girls: Faithful Friends book.
