Come Experience It for Yourself. . . Life Is Good with a God Who Is Great!

This topically guided creative journal for teen girls offers inspiration and encouragement for those who desire to live their lives fully devoted to Christ. Amidst the loud, confusing voices of the world, trying to tell them which way is the right way to go, girls need to stop, rest, refuel, and reflect in the presence of their truest Friend and most loyal heavenly Father. Whether it’s through creativity, meditating on scripture, prayer, or writing, readers will join young author and artist, Marjorie Jackson, for a time of life-giving fun, faith-strengthening encouragement, and God-glorifying growth. As girls connect with their first love, Jesus, they will begin to understand that life is truly good with a God who is absolutely great! 

About the Author

Twenty-year-old Marjorie Jackson is the author of two books thus far—The Greatest Book You’ve Never Read (2013) and Devoted: A Girl's 31-Day Guide to Good Living with a Great God (Barbour Publishing, 2017). She is the oldest of six wildly energetic, half Guatemalan kids. She enjoys playing the piano, strumming away on the ukulele, singing with her sister, Genevieve, musical theater, art (especially hand lettering), spending time outside, watching black-and-white TV shows from the fifties, and talking with family, friends, strangers…pretty much anybody.
