  • Sophie Breaks the Code

    Nancy Rue

    Paperback (Zonderkidz, Aug. 16, 2005)
    Sophie's learning about medieval codes of honor in seventh grade honors class---and in life. Sophie's shaved her head to empathize with a gravely ill friend, but negative assumptions and cruel teasing have her trying to deflect the attention with humor---and wisecracking always seems to land her in trouble! In the meantime, Sophie takes action to prevent another of the Pops' mean schemes---but to do so, she lies about her friends and loses them as a result. When she finally understands the true intention of a code of honor, Sophie learns another absolute truth: God expects us to be completely honest---especially with ourselves. But if we fail, He forgives us. When Sophie comes clean, her best friends come around. She thwarts the Pops and gains the respect of her teachers, too.

  • Real Girls of the Bible: A Devotional

    Mona Hodgson

    Paperback (Zonderkidz, Jan. 29, 2008)
    Girls have always formed strong bonds, especially in tough times. This sisterhood of women is celebrated in the latest devotional from Faithgirlz. Real Girls of the Bible uses the stories of thirty authentic Bible women to illustrate the power of the girlfriend community to surround and support girls as they become real women of God, while emphasizing each girl's individuality and God's special plan for her. Featuring women from both the Old and New Testaments---including Esther, Leah, Sarah, Ruth, Martha, Mary, and Elizabeth---each devotional centers around the woman's faith-journey and includes a scripture verse, prayer, suggestions for further reading, and even an item called Body Talk intended to promote self-esteem. The text is sprinkled with Fun Facts (Miriam led the singing of the first song of worship ever recorded in Scripture!) to keep girls engaged and interested. In every story, girls see God's holy character and glimpse their own potential in relationship with Him, while learning the qualities they must develop---such as relationship, authenticity, and loving-kindness---on the way to becoming real girls themselves.
