Great Short Devotions! Feb 14, 2008
I am now a youth minister in my late 20's, but I actually used this devotional book in high school and I still have my copy. I have terrific memories of it. If you're looking for a book of short devotionals a teenager will enjoy, this may be the one for you.
Devotions With a Sense of Humor Mar 27, 2000
This book contains approximately 90 daily devotions for teenagers. I have two teenagers, and we read the book for family devotions at the dinner table. The book is primarily written by Ken Davis, a Christian comedian, writer, and speaker who appeals to all ages. Most of the devotions use humor to make their point, and all are interesting. The devotions in this book are equally good for Junior High or High School youth and for both sexes. They are also good for all denominations. (The only downside to the book is that some of the devotions are a little long when you are hungry and want to eat dinner!)
