Written by Proverbs 31 Bible teacher Lynn Cowell and a professional counselor of 25 years and the host of the Raising Mentally Healthy Kids Podcast Michelle Nietert, LPC-S, Loved and Cherished: 100 Devotions for Girls empowers them to develop a foundation of knowing who and whose they are before they encounter a worldview that is built on what you do, how you look, how well you are liked, and what you own.
Am I loved? Am I valuable? Am I smart? The questions can go on for as long as a girl’s imagination and self-image allow. A girl needs to know that she is enough because of God’s love.
So often, girls and women give in to the lies that how they look and how popular they are determines their worth. But as children of God, we can have the confidence that we are loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable because God is our heavenly father.
Loved and Cherished equips girls ages 8–12 to:
- Discover perfect, unconditional love in God, and that she doesn’t have to perform or be perfect to receive that love.
- Know she has God’s protection, despite living in an often-scary world.
- Let go of heartaches, fears, and failures, because she has the love she needs to face it.
- Build a strong foundation of faith on the love who will never leave her so she can face the challenges of growing up.
With a beautiful foil-decorated hardcover, ribbon marker, and lovely page illustrations, this book of devotions will make the perfect gift for any girl in your life who deserves to know she is cherished, treasured, valuable, and worthy.
