One of America’s favorite pastors, Max Lucado offers his first 365 devotional for teens, encouraging them to trust God and His perfect plan for their lives.
Life is hard, and today’s teens could use daily guidance and reassurance that God is with them, through it all and despite it all. In One God, One Plan, One Life, bestselling author Max Lucado offers teens an accessible way to connect with their Lord. Daily devotions address such topics as faith and obedience but also offer wisdom on topics that teens battle, such as purity, bullying, alcohol and drug use, and self-image. Each day includes a short devotion and accompanying scripture as well as a take-away application that will inspire and challenge teens to trust in God and His plans for them.
One God, One Plan, One Life helps teens to cut through life’s distractions and rely on the one thing that is truly important—a relationship with God.
It seems odd to me that Lucado hasn't written a devotional for teens before now, but he hasn't! This devotional is simple and easy to use and is really perfect for preteens and teens, and for family study and discussion. Each page is dated, has a bible quote, then topic discussion, another related bible quote, and then One More Thought- a moment for daily quiet time, checking back on the day, checking in with God, and seeing him in their daily lives.
The book is compact enough to be left on a bedside table, or carried to bible study and it would make a great present to give to a child as they turn thirteen, to help usher them into the troubled teen years with a wonderful guide to help them on their path! I highly recommend it!
And lucky you, one BTHM reader will win their own copy!
