From Blah to Awe

"From Blah to Awe" is a book designed for teenage girls in an attempt to help them seek out a stronger relationship with God. I would say that this book would be appropriate for high school aged girls, or older, because there are brief mentions of women who had turned to prostitution etc. In this book, Jenna Lucado Bishop, intertwines stories of young women of faith, bible verses, and commentary to help young women discover their own faith. I thought some of the stories of other young women in this book were inspirational, but I really didn't like the overall layout of the book. This could have been broken down into small devotionals or smaller chapters. To me, the book just felt a little choppy, and some things felt out of place. The bible verses were a wonderful addition as a tie in the Scripture for young women. Some of the commentary was a little bit redundant and long, as well. I would give this 3/5. 

FTC DISCLAIMER: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze program. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
