Ann-Margret Hovsepian dares girls 8 to 12 to transform their lives and world through active faith in these short devotions featuring specific daily challenges that put learned truth into life-altering action.
Truth and Dare is a devotional that transforms Scripture from something learned to something lived. Each daily devotion launches with short Scriptures and simple, relevant messages (truth). Girls explore godly truth about everything from standing up for others to guarding their speech. And each day, girls are challenged (dared) to live out their faith by undertaking specific tasks that foster spiritual growth.
Girls will delight in discovering how Scripture can become real in whole new ways as they learn to apply it with each day's dare. And parents value the solid truth brought by Hovsepian, a respected author and speaker. It ideally suits anyone looking to inspire a young girl to boldly live out her faith.

As an aunt to three Tween girls I am always on the hunt for ideas for Christmas gift giving. I am the kind of person that tries to put a lot of thought into a gift and not buy something, "just because I have too". Recently I had the opportunity to review Truth and Dare: One Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls and it is the perfect gift idea for any tween in your life.
Each devotional gives the reader a short (3 or 4 paragrah) devotional, scripture reference, dare, and a list of ideas for them to do (dares!). Each dare will challenge them in their walk with Jesus, and addresses issues that are perfectly age-appropriate for them: friendship, relationships and more. There is also a great space set aside for journalling. With a sparkly cover and lots of pink, this devotional is as girly-girl as it comes and I would not hesitate to give it as a gift.
