- perfect for tween girls by Courtney on 2/26/2015
For the last three weeks my daughter and I have been reading Truth, Dare or Double Dare: Another Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls every night before bed. The book is recommended for girls ages 8 - 12 and I think it's perfect for my daughter. She'll be 9 in March and she has no trouble with this level of reading and questioning.
I've started devotionals with her a couple of times in the past that we haven't stuck with and I figured that might be the case with this one as well, but I've given her the option of reading this together some nights or not and she always says, "It doesn't matter, Mom. Whatever." The thing is, when I respond, "Well, what does that mean? Do you want to read it or not?" she always actually comes back and says "Yes." I think she appreciates the brief discussion that the book prompts and I do think she enjoys it.
For three weeks we've done the Monday through Friday reading which includes a Biblical Truth, a Dare, and a Double Dare. The Truth is a a simple statement or Bible truth. The Dare is usually a story, anecdote, or lesson followed by a challenge that's appropriate for tweens. Finally, the Double Dare is one or two challenging questions and something to think about. This part is the hardest for my daughter to do. The Double Dare really makes her think of how she can apply the truth of the lesson to her life. For example, the one we read last night was "What do you use as an excuse to not follow God?" This was after we read a couple of paragraphs about Helen Keller and her relentless faith.
On the weekends the entry in the devotional is a bit longer than the weeknight entries but there is only one for the whole weekend. This works great for us because honestly, sometimes we just get behind and need that extra day to catch up. There's also a spot for journaling if that's something you want to use. Apparently there's a version of this book for boys that I'd like to check out so that Josh and I can read it together in a couple of years.
Ann-Margret Hovsepian's Truth, Dare or Double Dare devotional is a good one. It would make a great gift for the tween girl in your life. In fact, I'm going to make it a goal to continue reading the devotions with my daughter for the rest of 2015 since there's enough devotions for the whole year.
- My daughter loves this book! by Erin on 12/26/2014
Truth, Dare, Double Dare is a great devotional for girls. Geared toward the preteen age, it offers scripture memorization, relatable info, questions, activities and more. I would recommend getting a journal to go along with this book so that you can write down your thoughts to the questions. My 11 year old daughter has really enjoyed the "Double Dare" part where you have an activity to do that goes along with the reading. This is a year's worth of activities. My daughter has taken to doing the activities first thing in the morning before school starts and really looks forward to it each day.
- Great for tweens by Rebecca C on 10/31/2014
This devotional is for girls ages 8 to 12 and is over 400 pages. Although the devotional is non-dated, it does list the days of the week at the top of the page. Each Monday through Friday devotional is laid out with the following:
Bible reading: tells what passage to read
Truth: a little story that goes along with the reading
Dare: these are different each day. Things such as Go to church, Pray, and Stay close to God.
Double Dare: questions that help your daughter think, memorizing and copying scripture
Promise to repeat: same question every day ~ How did it go? What did you learn?
The weekend devotionals are set up different each weekend. There may be stories with little games, Bible reading with a story, focusing on a certain passage, or talking about heroes of the Bible.
I have a nine year old daughter who I have had trouble finding an age appropriate devotional for. I like that this devotional has short stories that are applied to everyday life through the Bible readings. I'm also happy to see a few lines on each page for my daughter to write down her thoughts on that days devotional. I think this devotional will help my daughter in her walk with God as she studies her Bible each day.
