Do you know that you are adored? You are! And Lindsay A. Franklin brings that to life so beautifully in her book, Adored: 365 Devotions for Young Women. Although I am not a teen or twentysomething, I soaked in the words from Scripture reminding me I have a purpose, and I have a heavenly Father who adores me and is with me through the daily adventure of navigating life and relationships.
Lindsay Franklin is an award-winning author, freelance editor, and homeschooling mother of three. Her personal tone identifies with pop culture (including a Spiderman application), yet provides instruction for a growing, thriving faith.
Lindsay says her purpose for writing Adored is so that we can learn more about our amazing God and His limitless love for us. Topics covered include:
What does holiness mean?
Where does our value come from?
What does God say about modesty?
How should I respond to bullying?
Does my reputation matter?
Why does God allow suffering?
What are spiritual gifts?
How do I combat sadness?
What does a Christian look like?
What does generosity have to do with me?
This is a wonderful book with 365 days of encouragement for the young women in your life. Published with Zondervan and Books & Such Literary Management, Adored is beautifully crafted with artwork and journaling space to nudge the process of building character and instilling values. It is the perfect gift for any occasion, or just a “thinking of you” day. I well remember that stage of my youthful walk with God, and how important books were to the shaping of my character. This is one of those books that is timeless in showing God’s promises are for each and every one. I highly recommend it!
