and the book:

Online with God: A 90-Day Devotional

***Special thanks to Pam Mettler of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***


Laurie’s first published work was a note passed to a boy in elementary school. You would have thought that this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie is the author of thirty five books and author/illustrator of two more. Laurie lives in rural Ohio with her husband and two daughters.

My Review:

Having a teenage daughter that is immersed in the technical world, I very much appreciate a devotion book that is written in the form of a young girl “blogging” to God.    It covers topics like chat rooms, blogs, cell phones, texting and the like, all things that are seemingly an every day event in a 21st century teen’s life.

This devotional is written well, short two page blog entries, along with a tip about the issue, and a prayer to God regarding it as well.  Amber has really enjoyed reading through it, and says that the issues are tackled well and given a good Christian world view.

This is a book I’d recommend adults get for the young women in their lives, to either read with them or have them use on their own.  The subjects of the daily reading will definitely having them thinking a little more on how they use their technology and why they should use it to the glory of God.
