For today, I will highlight books from Elizabeth George, an American author and Christian speaker from Seattle, Washington. She has written over 80 books and many of these targeted for young ladies. Some of those I have used for Girls Groups are “A Young Woman after God’s Own Heart”, “A Girl after God’s Own Heart”, “A Girl’s Guide to Discovering Her Bible”, A Girls’ Guide to Making Really Good Choices”, and I have just ordered “A Girl’s Guide to Prayer”.
In the book, “A Girl’s Guide to Making Really Good Choices,” Elizabeth George gives advice on developing confidence, desiring God’s will and improving relationships. The book is 208 pages and gives room to write responses while working through the book. One of the things I like best about these books is being able to make practical applications from the information and challenges given.
“A Girl’s Guide to Discovering Her Bible” can be used for girls age 10-16, as you encourage young ladies to put their hope and trust in the truths of the Bible. Facts are included about where the Bible came from and the importance of learning and following these truths. This book kept my Middle and High School group of inner city girls interested and focused as we were able to talk through the inviting pages.
These books by Elizabeth George can be ordered in many places, one of my favorite is through Christian Book Distributors (Christianbook.com) where you can find these books for as low as $5.99. Her husband, Jim George, has written several complimentary books for guys, such as “A Young Man’s Guide to Making Right Choices”, and “A Young Man After God’s Own Heart”.
Having good resources is very important in teaching and learning in a focused and interesting way. I am very appreciative of Elizabeth George who is able to provide books which are written in a clear and positive manner. We are blessed to have these available for use in small groups or in the home with your children.
