Middle school is a tough time in a child’s life. These years are a time to build a firm foundation for life, hopefully in Christ. I am already finding it tougher to connect with my growing tweens! I do not want them to distance themselves from me or God any further than where they are right now. I saw an opportunity to review 7th Grade: Growing Your Faith A 30-Day Devotional by Lars Rood and was excited to see what it had to offer.
Eldest is technically in 6th grade and just turned 12 but felt he would be a good candidate to review this book. He was gently reminded by mom each day to read his daily entry of 7th Grade: Growing Your Faith.
Here’s what he has to say about what he has read so far:
The writing is very down to earth. The book itself has some great topics that I can relate to. I would recommend this book to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who want to survive Middle School and grow in Jesus.
I am enthralled that he seemed to really want to read the book not just because mom had asked him to for a review,lol. He really seemed to show interest in the book and not dread. That really says a lot for this age!
I would recommend this book as an end of school present as a child is “graduating” to the next grade level. So for Princess she is going into 6th in the Fall and Eldest will be in 7th in the Fall. I would give this book to an incoming 7th grader.

Thank you for your review. I loved the pictures of your son reading while your other stuck out his tongue and photo bombed. 🙂
It can be tough work being a “blogger” family sometimes. Kids don’t always wnt to smile and of course siblings “want to help”, lol. I try to share some of the crazy real-life pictures so people know we are human:)
