Get Your Story Straight is written for teens but I believe anyone can benefit from the truths in this book. There are 52 weeks of lessons broken down into 5 days:
Day 1- Bible readings
Day 2- The Word Applied (how the Bible applies to our lives)
Day 3- Personal Questions
Day 4- Memorization
Day 5- Journaling and Prayer
It's a richly written book with topics that apply to everyday living. There are 3 main portions: 1) Getting the Story Straight
2) My Life Mixed into the Story
3) The Story in Me Lived Out with Others
I particularly enjoyed The Word Applied section as it made the Bible come to life in today's world. So often the Bible can be confusing, particularly to children/teens, and this portion was quite effective at explaining topics in a real and easy to understand manner. I look forward to using this wonderful devotional with my daughters (13 & 17)!
Kristen Hatton is a native Texan now putting roots down in Edmond, OK with her church-planter/pastor husband and their three children. With a public relations background from Southern Methodist University, Kristen has a wide array of professional experiences, none of which she counts as important as the job of being a “present” mom. Through leading a small group Bible study of teenagers, she has discovered her passion for teaching and writing about God’s grace.
