Apologia~Journeys of Faithfulness

Journeys of Faithfulness written by Sarah Clarkson is published by Apologia.   This book is a series of stories about women of the Bible.  Women such as Mary, Ruth and Esther just to name a few.   The book is written with actual accounts from the Bible along with Sarah Clarkson's insight on how these women might have felt.
The book also has devotionals throughout and pages for journal writing.  It can be used for a devotional book for the young ladies in your family.  It will teach them how to reach for that better relationship with Christ.  It is 232 pages of wonderful stories of women that lived their lives for God.
This book can be purchased directly from the Apologia website for $13.00.  It is recommended for girls ages 12 and up.
You can read a sample chapter on the Apologia website.  You can also see the table of contents on their website as well.
I have really been blessed by the words in this book.  It has not only showed my girls how to live a better life devoted to Christ, but it has showed me the same.
There are so many struggles in life with just small everyday things.  God asks us to open our hands up and give everything to him.  Sarah put it best in chapter 6, "The Great Adventure".
"She held her heart out to God
and fought to keep her hands open, her fingers loose."
The devotionals are so well done!  It ties everything together and points you right back to Scripture.  You read the short devotional at the end of each chapter.  There are at least 3 passages of Scripture to then look up and read.  There are also thought provoking questions to get you and your daughters thinking. 
I highly recommend this book!  It is a great Mother/Daughter Bible study.  We are going to pick this up again after Christmas.  I want to really focus on each woman we study.
