My Review:
This year devotion is sure to spark an interest with your daughter.   I enjoy the short yet effective and thought provoking devotionals.   Each devo starts with a a short intro on what the topic of the day, a memory verse, the devotional and the a more to explore and girl talk that will have girls thinking about a wide variety of questions.   The last section God Talk is all about prayer.   I enjoy the simple format that includes a great practice to get them in the habit of a daily devotional.  
Thanks Zondervan for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.  I was very blessed to receive this book and was able to pass it on to a youth girl from my church!  :)

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
