Are you looking for a book that will help your teen focus on being joyful and not negative? This is the book for you! Think 4:8 by Tommy Newberry and Lyn Smith is a 40 day book challenge. The chapters are short like normal devotionals. They begin with a scripture and then a couple pages that help connect the scripture to real life teen issues. After the reading their is a life application called "work it". After that there is a "talk it", "stick it" and "pray it". It has a nice layout and would appeal to a teenager. My favorite chapter was "Your Parents" and how to honor them. The authors explain that God has placed them in your life not by mistake and why to respect and honor your parents is important. Obviously that was my favorite chapter because I have a teenage daughter.
I enjoyed the book and believe that most teens would benefit from reading it. My daughter would not willingly read it so we are doing it as a read out loud. I was given this book by Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.
