From Blah to Awe: A Blog Tour

About The Book:

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.

About The Author:

If Jenna Lucado Bishop is sure of anything, she is sure of this, “I have a deep calling on my life to give hope to teenage girls.” What started out as a heart to encourage teen girls has now blossomed into a ministry. Daughter of best-selling Christian author Max Lucado, Jenna has realized that she has inherited a passion for writing and speaking just like her dad. She is currently a part of the Revolve Tour, an event for teen girls that includes a line-up of Christian artists like Natalie Grant, as well as speaker and author, Chad Eastham and many more. In September 2009 the release of her debut book, Redefining Beautiful, will hit bookstore shelves. Jenna has also narrated part of Thomas Nelson’s Word of Promise: Next Generation. Through all the piling projects, Jenna is driven by the thought of one more girl hearing about the love of Jesus.

My Review:

From Blah to Awe is a fantastic book that all young girls and young women alike should read. It is full of amazing tips that will help girls step out of the zones and realize that they can have an awesome relationship with Christ. Young women (and even us older ones) will be challenged through the various chapters and the questions we can ask ourselves. There are several places in each chapter designed to journal thoughts which adds a nice touch to the book. The book is very easy to read, and the tone of the book will appeal to young girls, mostly in junior or senior high grades. A great gift idea for all the girls in your life. The writing style is very friendly, and conversational, making it feel as though I was sitting face-to-face with Jenna. This book actually reminded me a lot of her father's (Max Lucado), which is a definite plus. Definitely one that I will pass on to my own girls one day for sure. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
