    is an interactive journal that is fun, entertaining, and inspiring. I’ve always loved journaling, especially when prompts or inspiring stories are involved. This spiral-bound book features biblical women and their examples of strength, courage, and faith.

    Each section includes:

    Some of the women depicted are well-known, such as Mary Magdalene, Miriam, Esther, and Ruth, but many lesser-known biblical women are just as inspiring.

    This book is a valuable tool for learning as well as devotional and meditative time with our Lord. A beautifully bound, stimulating, and fun journal.

    Love it! The front cover art is colorful and attractive, and the sturdy cardstock cover protects and conceals the spiral binding—and it lays flat when opened.

    The fun font and lively title encourages young journalers.

    It is a spiral journal which makes it easier to open flat for writing and artwork. The inside pages are thicker than normal to allow the use of pens and other types that might otherwise bleed through the page. The cover is a thin type of paperboard that actually is a bit than the pages. It is not very sturdy.

    Women featured are women of faith from the Bible. Some are better known than others, including Mary, Elizabeth, Deborah, and many more. Each section includes a description of who she was, a scripture to locate her in the Bible, and an illustration of what she might have looked like. Girls will especially enjoy that.

    In the journal sections readers may draw their own illustration from the story, write why they think the woman was courageous, post how they can also be courageous, also, ending with a page that has scripture and space to write a journal entry of whatever they wish.

    This is a lovely journal for young ladies. It would be a nice standalone journal or awesome companion to Barbour’s 100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls and The Bible for Courageous Girls. I highly recommend it for girls ages 8 to 12. Some older girls might like it, too. It would be great for a small group, class, or gift to get a girl interested in journaling or learning about a Women of the Bible. It gets a 4.5 out of 5 star rating from me.

    The beautiful workbook/journal would make an awesome gift for young girls in your family or church. It is not only beautiful on the outside but very practically made, starting with a colorfully designed think cover, and spirally bound thick pages which allows for pages to be folded over.

    The book contains stories of 34 woman from the Bible, including some unnamed ladies. Each 'devotion" starts with a colorful picture of the lady, a passage of scripture to read about the ladies story, a short summary of the ladies story, a page for the reader to draw a picture about the story, a page for the reader to reflect/journal on about the courage displayed by that lady, a page for the reader to reflect/journal on how they can display that courage, and a page with a bible verse that fits in with that ladies story. Highly recommend this journal.

    This new book from Barbour Publishing is a great way to interest the young girls in your life into learning more about the brave women of the Bible. It is called an interactive journal because it offers several ways to attract and keep their attention. There is a brief description of each of the thirty-four subjects and the Bible scripture that offers them the complete story; a page where they can draw their interpretation of the story; a journal page to express their thoughts about the featured

    This new book from Barbour Publishing is a great way to interest the young girls in your life into learning more about the brave women of the Bible. It is called an interactive journal because it offers several ways to attract and keep their attention. There is a brief description of each of the thirty-four subjects and the Bible scripture that offers them the complete story; a page where they can draw their interpretation of the story; a journal page to express their thoughts about the featured person; and finally, another page to write how they themselves can be a courageous girl also.

    I like that this spiral bound book allows it to be easily written in and I appreciate that the girls and women mentioned are from both the Old and New Testament. I am also glad that there is a Bible verse at the end of each section to offer further encouragement for these young readers who long to be a courageous girl of God.

    I recommend How to Be a Courageous Girl of God and I just wish that books like this had been available when my daughter was a young girl!

    Oh, what fun this journal is! It has some women of the Bible gives a picture of what they might have looked like, tells a little of their story, how they were courageous and gives the Bible verses to look them up.

There is plenty of writing space, for your Courageous Girl to answer a question about each lady and to also put in to words, how your girl will be courageous, and draw pictures.

    It's a nice format of the book, it has a wire spiral hidden inside the book cover, this allows for easy reading and writing in the book. The book is Pink!

    Would be nice to give this to your child, have her/him fill it out and then save it. Always nice to go back through journals and see what was happening in your child's life.

    How to be a Courageous Girl of God is a great resource to use along with sharing your own journey with your child to help them cultivate their own relationship with God. It’s not the be-all, end all, as no resource should be, yet it does well what it sets out to do – points your daughter (or the girl in your life that you love) back to the One who loves her the most. It’s a great resource and I highly recommend it. It’s up to the parent’s discretion at what age she feels this resource would be

It’s a great resource and I highly recommend it. It’s up to the parent’s discretion at what age she feels this resource would be best presented, because all girls are different so it serves quite an expansive age range which is another benefit.

    How to Be a Courageous Girl of God: An Interactive Journal Inspired by Extraordinary Women of Faith is a spiral-bound, interactive journal for young girls and teens. Each woman featured in the journal is a Biblical figure, some more well-known than others, but all are women of courage. Each woman's story has a short description of who she was and what she did and an artist's interpretation of what she might have looked like, along with the Bible verses of where her story can be read in the

    How to Be a Courageous Girl of God: An Interactive Journal Inspired by Extraordinary Women of Faith is a spiral-bound, interactive journal for young girls and teens. Each woman featured in the journal is a Biblical figure, some more well-known than others, but all are women of courage. Each woman's story has a short description of who she was and what she did and an artist's interpretation of what she might have looked like, along with the Bible verses of where her story can be read in the Bible. The interactive journal sections include one where the reader can draw a picture from the story, one for the reader to write why they think the woman was courageous, a spot to describe how they can also be courageous like the woman they just read about, and also a page with a Bible verse and area to write a journal entry of anything they wish to write.

    Being spiral-bound helps the reader and writer be able to lay the journal open flat making it easier to write in, and the colors used are attractive for young girls. The paper used is fairly think so ink shouldn't blend through the paper to the other side, but the front cover I feel could have been improved upon. It is made from thin paperboard and sticks out over the inside pages, causing it to be easily bent (and it actually arrived through the mail bent already) and it won't hold up to repeated usage. It would have been better made from hardback material, and not as overlapping of the inside pages, although the colorful cover is eye-catching and pretty and will capture young girls' attention.

    I was very excited to win this lovely book. I gave it to my niece who will be reading it and hopefully enjoying the stories and pages to do drawings and answer questions. It is very nicely laid out - colorful, nice illustrations and great stories. The only comment I have is that maybe it would have been nice to have more of an explanation of the bible story for those young girls who don't easily look up stories in their own bible.

  • Vicky Sluiter

    This interactive, spiral bound book is a great way to encourage your girls to begin studying the Word for themselves, as well as learning how to journal. Each section has a scripture to read, a bit about that courageous woman, a picture to draw, and then a question is asked that will get them thinking about what to journal.

    Each woman of the Bible that they study will teach how to be a hero in challenging situations, even when you’re not perfect or don’t feel brave. A great resource for your

    How to be a Courageous Girl of God: An Interactive Journal Inspired by Extraordinary Women of Faith from Shiloh Kidz Publishing features thirty-four women whose stories are noted in the Bible. Combining inspirational Bible stories with plenty of space for writing and drawing, the journal aims to empower girls to live courageously. Over a span of five pages for each woman, the journal directs the user to read the Bible story, examine why this woman was considered courageous, and contemplate a life application.

    In my opinion, some of the stories in How to be a Courageous Girl of God were stretched. Regarding Noah's wife, the text says that “she must have shared Noah's strong faith and trust in God.” While it is likely that she did, we really don't know as it's not addressed in the Bible. For Priscilla, the narrative says that she and her husband spent time with Paul, “making tents and talking about the Bible.” This choice of wording is a bit misleading. While they had the Torah and other sacred texts in the early church, they didn't have what we know of as “the Bible.” Maybe these things seem nit-picky, but they didn't settle well for me.

    The How to be a Courageous Girl of God journal is spiral bound with a cover that is slightly thicker than a normal paperback cover. Just from the mailing, three of the four corners have damage and the spine has substantial creasing. Considering that my daughter will likely use this for an extended time period, I think a hardcover would have been a better option.

    Despite the things listed here that I did not like, I'm pretty sure my daughter will be happy when I present the How to be a Courageous Girl of God journal to her. At seven, she's developed a love of journaling and likely would understand the concepts, but I'm not sure she's ready for critical thinking and life application yet. Late elementary to high schoolers will probably benefit most from this journal.
