Book Review: From Blah to Awe by Jenna Lucado Bishop

Jenna Lucado Bishop {Max Lucado’s lovely daughter} writes from Blah to Awe! with a deep passion for God and a passion for young girls. Jenna takes whatever teen girl is feeling and going through: from bulling to sex to drugs and actually talks about it in a way that teen girls can identify. Jenna reveals what most won’t say. She shows you how to get  back into a love for God that motivates you with very practical ideas.
Each chapter ends with thought provoking questions that get right to the core of your heart. There are suggested prayers to get your focus back to where it should be. This book is filled with practical advice, raw truth stories, and journaling prompts and Scripture references to support the points she is making, securing girls in a foundational message from God’s word.
This book is written in such a way that a teenage girl will feel engaged and not want to put it down. I would highly recommend this book to Father’s and Mother’s and Grandparents of teenage girls especially ones who have gone through something deeply painful in their young lives. I would have loved to have this book 15 years ago. I truly believe that it would have been such a help!

Product Description
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.
