Apologia: Journeys of Faithfulness {Schoolhouse Review Crew}

Have you been searching for a devotional/Bible study guide to work through with your teen daughter? Journeys of Faithfulness, by Sarah Clarkson, may be just what you're looking for! You can purchase it from Apologia.

Sarah shares the spiritual journeys of a few women in the Bible: Mary and Martha; Mary, mother of Jesus; Esther; and Ruth. She gives a historical fiction account of each woman, while using details from the Biblical account. This makes the stories of these women come alive, and gives us a glimpse of what they may have thought or felt.

The book is divided in to four parts, one for each lady, or pair of ladies as in the case of Mary and Martha. Each part consists of three chapters; and each chapter consists first of the narrative, followed by a devotional, then the Bible study pages, and finally journey journal pages.

At this point, Jen is reading through this on her own. She reads the narrative and devotional, then reads through the Bible study portion (which consists of scripture references, and questions to answer). There is space for writing responses in the book, but she hasn't been writing out her responses. Neither has she been utilizing the journey journal pages, so far.

Jen is enjoying it; finds the stories captivating. They are helping to enhance her journey with the Lord.

Journeys of Faithfulness is recommended for ages 12 and up. I think it would be great for a small group Bible study for young ladies...or even some of us who aren't so young anymore. ;-)
