Girl Talk with God by Susie Shellenberger
Simply put, prayer is a conversation with your Best Friend about anything and everything. Susie Shellenberger brings this to life in Girl Talk with God. The book is organized by topics, so it can be a convenient resource for teen girls to see in to God’s heart and wisdom about issues ranging from God’s Love and Spending Time with Him to Social Media, Boyfriends, and Cutting. “But be prepared: God tells girls the truth, and sometimes it’s not pretty. But when He challenges, He offers His grace, His comfort, and His awesome love.”
It is apparent that Susie, who was the founding editor of Brio Magazine and is now the editor of Susie Magazine, has a heart for teen girls. She writes with such compassion, understanding, and humor without being patronizing. The conversations that are written between God and a teen girl point the fictional young lady and the readers to their Bible and to continue in prayer.
I wasn’t expecting the book to be written as actual conversations, but for those who find nonfiction books harder to read, this book make it seem more like you’re reading a story or over-hearing a conversation. Sometimes it’s easier to see our lives and the changes that need to be made when we first take a look at someone else’s life. I plan to pass along this inspiring and challenging book to some young ladies who could use some wisdom and encouragement in their Christian walk.
