I had the great privilege of growing up in a Christian family who attended church regularly, participated in church activities, and even furthered my knowledge of Christ through home schooling me which provided a Christ focused education.
When you have all of this at your fingertips and spoon fed to you it’s easy to just take it for granted. Especially as a teen church becomes more about talking with friends before and after the service and waiting through the message because that’s what you do. Because that was my experience I really related to Jenna in this book-and I can see how it would be a great book for Christian teen girls.
I didn’t get much out From Blah to Awe for myself–but I suppose that is not terribly surprising since high school was further back than I like to think about these days! I would be interested to see/hear what a teenagers review of it would be. I think that it has potential if a girl was to do the activities and really meditate on God’s word while reading it. Her writing and wording are very teen oriented though at times I feel like she may go a little over the top with this–teens can feel when you’re trying to act like a teen even when you are not one yourself. However I think that teen girls would really enjoy this fun, practical, and interesting book overall. I wish I could have read it as a teenager myself as I feel I would have enjoyed it.
