Girl talk with God by Susie Shellenberger

Girl Talk with God

I have worked in a Catholic all girls school for many years now.  And, with it, many gifts have come along to my life.  I have made peace with many areas of my life as a woman, a daughter, a mom and as a human being.  From all of them the relationship with myself (with God) has been the most satisfying and meaningful as it has allowed me to become closer to what I really am: God!  That being said, the expectations toward this book were many and big.  I enjoyed and appreciate the format.  It is a very easy to read book.  The language is simple and plain, while the intention profound and transcendental for those girls that are looking for a different way of experiencing God.  The book stands as a resource for finding answers through the intimacy of the conversations the teen in them and God.

In much personal note, I would have enjoyed it much more if it was more inclusive about all of the ones that have a very rewarding relationship with God and Christ, but that are not the type of “Christians” she is defining at the beginning of the book.  In my very humble opinion,  Christ is not patrimony of a few but of humanity and anyone that is willing to live fully it’s sacredness as a Creation of our Father.

This book will be of great value for Christian adults and teens that enjoy the fundamentals of their faith.

Enjoy the reading and the beautiful picture on the front of the edition I am reviewing.
