“A Girl After God’s Own Heart has deepened my relationship with God, especially in the area of prayer. I used to go to God only with a list of requests, but just felt so guilty and disconnected. But now I spend a lot of my prayer time praising Him, which has grown my love for God.” Shannon, 11 years old

It helps me communicate and get closer to my tween.

5 Stars

"It covers a lot of important things I want my tween to know. The Bible verses are on point and has helped me communicate better with my 12 yr old. Every Saturday morning we go to a coffee shop or restaurant to have breakfast and then we do this study. Sometimes we can spend 3 - 4 hrs together in deep conversation. Without gadgets or electronics to distract us!

My daughter is the reserve type and won't easily talk about issues she is dealing with whether at school or home issues with her siblings. This book helped us get closer together and she was able to open up to me and we then can discuss and open up the word of God to help her." - Gladie

Hoping for more like this.
