From Blah to Awe: Shaking Up a Boring Faith by Jenna Lucado Bishop
Have you ever felt bored with God?
Everyone, especially teenagers, struggles with being bored with God from time to time. Sometimes church services and Bible reading don't seem that exciting, and it's easy to get busy and not make time to pray . . . but when this happens, we are missing out!
Jenna Lucado Bishop shares her testimony and others' stories to see what a radical, living relationship with God looks like. But this book is not just based on feelings. The Bible gives steps that will help girls hunger and thirst for more of God.
This book will not only offer girls a fresh perspective, but it will also help them do a little soul-searching and discover where they are in their own lives. Plus, it will let them in on the world's greatest secret-that the Creator of the Universe loves and cherishes them deeply and that a fulfilling relationship with Him is the most exciting they will ever have.
A journal type of devotional book geared toward teenagers, From Blah to Awe is easy to read and will help bring more interest to young readers. Jenna doesn't come across as preachy, but on a level that teens can associate with. It's a very informative book that can be shared with friends, a youth group or to work on your own. It's hip and cool cover is very eye-catching but it's what that is inside that will help teens find their way.
