From Blah to Awe By Jenna Lucado Bishop

From Blah to Awe by Jenna Lucado Bishop is a non-fiction book aimed at young women, inspiring contention to deepen their faith walk. It is full of scripture, interesting antidotes, and many ideas to light the fire of intimacy with God.

This book is beautifully styled, and it has lots of spaces to write answers to questions in. It is about soul searching, and where Jesus meets us in the midst of our hearts. Jenna Lucado Bishop definitely inherited her Dad's amazing writing talent. I appreciated how she used examples from her own life through out the book.

Probably my favorite chapter was about how God is a supernatural God, and how when we try to seek him through our souls we often end up discouraged and confused. Jenna brings up a lot of things that young women battle with with. She provides answers in a non-judgmental, truth based way using scripture.

I would not give this book to a tween or young teenager. Although it is written in "girly-girl" talk, there are many mature themes. Without the "let's be girlfriends" chat, this book could easily be adapted to adults, particularly women of any age since so many of the truths in the book are universal to Christianity.

The thing I like most about From Blah to Awe is that it has some good meat. It contains tangible, life-breathing truths that go into the deep issues of the soul.

4 Stars out of 5
