But as children of God, we can have the confidence that we are loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable because God is our heavenly father.

Know she has God’s protection, despite living in an often-scary world. Let go of heartaches, fears, and failures, because she has the love she needs to face it. Build a strong foundation of faith on the love who will never leave her so she can face the challenges of growing up. With a beautifully decorated cover, ribbon marker, and lovely page illustrations, this book of devotions will make the perfect gift for any girl in your life who deserves to know she is cherished, treasured, valuable, and worthy.
