Series: No. A stand-alone devotional.

Spiritual Content- Each devotional has a write-up, a Scripture, and then a prayer starter; 'H's are capital when referring to God; One devotional explains who Jesus is and what He did for us (including the fact that those who trusted in Jesus and asked for forgiveness from their sins will be forgiven); All about many talks about & many mentions of God, Jesus, His plans for us, & trusting Him; Many mentions of those & events in the Bible (a few devotionals recap different events like Jesus dying on the cross, Esther, David & Goliath, Job, Solomon, etc.); Mentions of the Holy Spirit; Mentions of Bibles & Bible reading; Mentions of prayers, praying, & worshiping Him; Mentions of Heaven; Mentions of missionaries; Mentions of having godly role models; Mentions of sin; A few mentions of miracles; A few mentions of churches, church going, hymns, & pastors; A few mentions of blessings; A mention of an angel coming to see Mary;
*Note: Mentions of the devil and his lies; Mentions of gold idols and false gods in the Bible; Mentions of imaginary gods and goddesses like Mother Earth, people who worship the sun, moon, and stars, & those who say certain types of animals are holy (the author disagrees with these and says that all of that is very displeasing to God).

Negative Content- Mentions of lies, lying, & liars (and that God expects you to tell the truth, this part is added: “The only time He might be accepting of a lie is if you are in danger and a lie will help to save your life or keep you safe. Hopefully that will never happen to you.”); Mentions of jealousy; A handful of mentions of bullies, mean teasing, & hatred; A handful of mentions of gossip & rumors; A few mentions of deaths (in the Bible); A few mentions of swear words not being pleasing to God, especially if those words use God or Jesus’ name; A few mentions of cheating on homework; A couple mentions of animals being killed (in the Bible); A mention of seeing a fire or a crime; A mention of Jesus turning water in wine; A mention of eye rolling;
*Note: Mentions of silencing the little voice that says you aren’t good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, or strong enough and instead listening to God’s voice (quite a few other examples of what the father of lies says and what God says about it).

Sexual Content- One devotional talks about feeling butterflies and how sometimes it’s when going to a new place or doing a new thing, you may have them. But, it adds, if you avoid anything that starts that feeling, you could miss out on some cool new experiences such as never meeting your best friend or “when you get older, the man you would marry” and that if you forever ignore that feeling “you would end up miserable and alone”; Another devotion talks about Proverbs 31 and says about when the girl is a bit older and begins dating, her mom might give her wide advice about focusing on a boy’s heart and not his looks, it’s added towards the end of the devotional that “dating godly boys will lead you one day to the godly man you will marry”; A mention of a couple in the Bible dating and that “their like for one another soon turned into love, and they got married” (Ruth & Boaz); A mention of the “kissy, lovey kind of romantic love husbands and wives share”; A mention of when you “marry your Prince Charming, you might move away with him to a different city or state”.

There’s a lot of recapping different events from the Bible, which can be nice for younger readers, but I do wish at least where it was in the Bible would have been listed. Having the events summarized, though, does make it more accessible for those who maybe haven’t heard about them or haven’t grown up in a Christian home.

There’s some mentions of school settings and popularity, but not enough that I would think this devotional would only be good for girls in public or private school.

While this isn’t my personal favorite pre-teen devotional, it’s still a pretty good one that I think would be good as a first or second devotional for the age range of 8-12.

Overall, this was a sweet little devotional that I can see many young girls enjoying.

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Barbour) for this honest review.

A great book for young girls to help them grow in the Lord. I actually have my own devotional from this same author that I am currently enjoying so I was excited to see one I could use with my girls. They are 8 and 10 and this devotional gave us lots of topics to talk about. The devotionals themselves should only take 10 minutes or so, depending on how fast or slow the reader is, however we have easily spent over half an hour discussing the daily devotion.

The book has lots of reminders how to be kind, brave and courageous because God made us so; that we need to be honest, selfless, and caring. It has very simplified versions of major bible stories (Like Esther, David & Goliath, Job, etc.) every so many days and most of the devotions start off with a way the child can relate to the daily theme so its easier to understand. Every day finishes with a bible verse and a prayer prompt, which I liked because my two are still learning how to pray on their own without me.

All in all we are really enjoying going through this together!

For the middle grade girl, this is the perfect way to spend a few minutes each day, allowing her to grow in their faith and devote themselves to God.

The book contains a wealth of biblical truths that girls between the ages of 8 and 12 can apply to every aspect of their lives. In addition to topics such as Kindness, Friendship, Serving, Patience, Love, Joy, Courage, and more, girls will be encouraged to grow in their faith and spend regular time in the presence of their heavenly Father. There are brief scripture selections and prayer starters accompanying each devotional reading. 

There is no better place for girls to spend their next hundred days than with the 100-Day Devotional for Girls.

I give The 100-Day Devotional five out of five stars!

Happy Reading!

This devotional for girls would be a great gift. It will help a young girl to start the habit of having daily devotions. The devotions aren't very long so are the perfect length for this age group. There is scripture quoted followed by a simple writing directing the reader to the Lord. There is even a short prayer for them to pray. A really good, easy to read devotional.
