Book Description

From Eve to Esther, from the Samaritan woman at the well to the widow with her two mites, many women in the Bible have made courageous choices. All through the ages, women have chosen to help, to solve problems, to stand up for others, to strengthen families, and to follow God no matter what. Girls Who Choose God invites young readers (and those who love them) to make important choices of their own, following the examples of great women in the scriptures. With breathtaking illustrations, beautifully told stories, and insightful discussion questions, this delightful book is perfect for sharing, reading aloud, and drawing children into the scriptures.


I received a free copy of this book for an honest review,

Girls Who Choose God is full of stories of women from the Bible from the Creation to the Resurrection. Each of these women made a difficult choice and the authors ask which would you do?

At the end of each story is the scripture that that story was based on. There are also beautiful and colorful pictures to go along with each story.

This is a great way for children to learn about some of the women of the Bible. It is written for children, encourages them to think about making choices, and has the pictures that will help keep the interest of younger children.
