TOS Review - Apologia - Journeys of Faithfulness

PhotobucketSo far in our lives as homeschoolers, Apologia has never let us down. We love all the products they offer. This go around we were given the opportunity to review Journeys of Faithfulness by Sarah Clarkson. Journeys of Faithfulness is a wonderful book for moms and daughters to read together or separately. Sarah brings to life some of the great women in the Bible like; Ruth, Esther, Mary, Martha, and Mary mother of Jesus. This book is set up as a devotional with three sections in each chapter. The first section Sarah brings to life a woman from the Bible through telling a part of their life. The second section has a devotional related to the story/woman's life and the third section has scripture to tie it all together. The women's stories reveal how God can work through everyday, ordinary girls.





How We Are Using The Book and What We Think:

Journeys of Faithfulness is just plain wonderful. Sarah has an incredible talent of bringing these women to life. She also describes the love they have for God in an almost poetic way. Through her writing I could feel what these women must have been feeling. Just the thought of some of their encounters with Jesus is awe inspiring. We used this book as our morning devotional with reading one section a day. So far we have read through Mary and Martha and are almost finished with Mary Mother of Jesus. This book will definitely be finished and reread when Grace gets older. Journeys of Faithfulness would make a wonderful gift with the holidays coming up. In a nutshell - great author - great book - great reading. This book currently retails for $13.00 and comes as a soft cover book. The age recommendation is 12 and older.
