About the book: From Eve to Esther, from the Samaritan woman at the well to the widow with her two mites, many women in the Bible have made courageous choices. All through the ages, women have chosen to help, to solve problems, to stand up for others, to strengthen families, and to follow God no matter what.
Girls Who Choose God invites young readers (and those who love them) to make important choices of their own, following the examples of great women in the scriptures. With breathtaking illustrations, beautifully told stories, and insightful discussion questions, this delightful book is perfect for sharing, reading aloud, and drawing children into the scriptures.
My Review: This book is really great! I enjoyed reading it myself, and I know that I will enjoy using it for Family Home Evening with our kids even more. I liked the stories about each of the women from the Bible. I liked how each woman was shown having a choice to make. I also like that there is a thought provoking question after each of the stories, making it even easier to use for Family Home Evening. This is a great book, that shows just how women throughout ancient history were important and able to make good choices in their own lives.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
