This workbook of six chapters is “a course to help young women find their value and self-worth in God and what He says, instead of in the world.” Christina Feenstra is a grade five teacher in southern Ontario and has developed this course for young teenage girls to find their way in the world. It is primarily meant as a group study but can be used singly. Feenstra uses many Scriptural passages and the Three Forms of Unity for the girls to look up, to study and apply to their own lives.
As daughters of God, we are created in His image, living for His purposes to the glory of God’s Name. We belong to the body of Christ and thus are members of a community of believers. This book teaches young girls how to love God and to show thankfulness by loving their neighbor.
Each chapter begins with a Bible reading and a prayer, followed by questions and a study, and ends with things to focus on during the week. Feenstra makes good, practical suggestions such as keeping a journal to record devotions; to record five things daily for which we are grateful. Because we are temples of the Holy Spirit, we need to take good care not only of our spiritual needs but also of our physical needs by eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep.
I highly recommend this book for the young sisters in our churches. I’d even recommend it for the older sisters, especially the chapter on forming good habits, to review their own lives in the light of God’s Word.
