Marjorie Jackson: The Devoted Life

By Kelly Bridgewater

Come Experience It for Yourself. . . Life Is Good with a God Who Is Great!

This topically guided creative journal for teen girls offers inspiration and encouragement for those who desire to live their lives fully devoted to Christ. Amidst the loud, confusing voices of the world, trying to tell them which way is the right way to go, girls need to stop, rest, refuel, and reflect in the presence of their truest Friend and most loyal heavenly Father. Whether it’s through creativity, meditating on scripture, prayer, or writing, readers will join young author and artist, Marjorie Jackson, for a time of life-giving fun, faith-strengthening encouragement, and God-glorifying growth. As girls connect with their first love, Jesus, they will begin to understand that life is truly good with a God who is absolutely great!

My Thoughts:

The Devoted Life by Marjorie Jackson is a creative journal. It combines pictures to color, if you're into that type of thing, which I'm not, and a journal pages with questions to consider after reading a little entry to better develop your Christian walk. Some of the questions are deep with Biblical quotations to back them up. I enjoy some of the concept, but it feels a little too rushed in some sections. I wish there was more meat to some of the sections. It would be nice to develop some of the ideas more instead of jumping right into the next colored page. The cover is nice and beautifully bond. I looked forward to a creative way to journal and spend time with God, but I don't think this is the one for me. Overall, readers that like to have a few minutes with God every morning might think this is the perfect journal for them. I just like more depth to my study. 

I received a complimentary copy of The Devoted Life by Marjorie Jackson from Barbour Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own. 

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
