Become the brave girl that God made you to be!
Brave Girls Confidential is a Tommy Nelson book written by Travis Thrasher and illustrated by Aleksy and Olga Ivanov. It contains stories and secrets about faith and friendship. The book is a nice sturdy hardback book with a really bright cover and excellent color illustrations throughout over 200 pages.
The book starts by introducing you to all of the Brave Girls: Faith, Hope, Glory, Gracie and Honor. Each girl looks a little different than each other and has a different home/family life, giving the characters diversity that girls can relate to.
The book has over 12 unique stories. Each story starts with a simple scripture verse and usually ends with a scripture verse and a few talking point questions. The stories show how the 5 girls try to live godly lives in their home, school and wherever they’re at. The stories show the real rawness of childhood: sibling fights, school struggles and questions of faith.
The stories are meant to encourage and inspire girls on what it means to be brave, strong, and faithful. The book has fun stories, strengthening scriptures, and helpful takeaway discussion questions to encourage meaningful conversation.
I would not consider the book to be a deep devotional, but just a fun faith-filled fiction for young girls to read by themselves or with a parent who can guide them through some extra meaningful conversation. There are some tough subjects, such as moving, divorce, tight finances, fitting in and more. The book gives opportunity for girls to related to some stories and sympathize with others. It’s so important to talk through these tough feelings with your young ones and remind them that God is present and how we can respond and call on Him, when situations are hard.
Overall, I think it’s a neat book to have, as you can follow the characters (in this and other books) and really learn simple Godly truths that young ones will deal with.
