Five Minute Devotions for Teens – Laura L Smith

Reading through this devotional, specifically written for young adults, it is clear that the author has an understanding of teens, the issues and challenges that they face. Often, for young adults growing up with faith, or at the very least in a Christian home, these challenges can be compounded. This knowledge and experience is coupled with the author’s clear vision as to what they may need to hear and how to apply the Bible to their lives.

The particular focus of this devotional is mental health, maintaining a sound perspective on life and supporting those who may struggle. It is written in a knowledge that Jesus can and does turn up to edify and love all people, especially those who are in a place of need. There is also much good practical advice and support from experts in the field.

The daily devotions are short, easy to read in a friendly style that makes them feel quite personal. There is a large section for notes to encourage the reader to turn it into a notebook that can be returned to again and again.
