My Name is Erin Book Review

Finding devotion and motivational books that are age appropriate is sometimes a daunting task. A few weeks ago, we received the 4 books in the My Name is Erin series. Each of these books is a stand alone devotional that helps inspire tween girls and help them develop a radical faith.

The 4 books can be read in any order and are all capable of standing on their own.

My Name is Erin Books

My daughter started reading My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Plan for Radical Faith first. I heard her asking questions about what it means to have a radical faith, and what were the defining moments when she made big leaps of faith. Then we read through parts of it together. This series is a little too old for my 8 year old daughter, but would be perfect for tweens and teen girls who are on their journey to develop a deeper relationship with God.

The design of the book is hip and fun and has pull out quotes that pertain to their lives.

About the Books

my name is erin

Maybe you’ve had a moment-a time in your history when God did something radical in your heart. Putting your faith and trust in Him certainly feels like taking a giant leap, but really it’s just the beginning of the exciting, and-yes-radical journey that comes with agreeing to live as God calls you to.

Meet Erin, she has learned practical ways to do just that.

  • My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Plan for Radical Faith
    Jesus was a radical.  He changed everything he touched.  This book challenges us to take a hard stand and live with a radical faith.  But there are practical applications in this book that a young 8 year old girl and this almost 40 year old Mom can hang on to and use.  I loved the illustration of filling a jar with rocks.  If you just throw them all in the jar, they won’t fit; but if you put the bigger rocks in first and get smaller with each rock, then the small ones will be able to drop down and fill the jar.  The challenge is easy to see.  We must prioritize our time and fill our moments with the important things first and the other things will fall into place.
  • My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Journey to Discover Truth
    The world gives us lies and fake replacements for the ‘good stuff’ all the time.  This book is a lesson on how knowing the truth can change your life.  When is it ok to tell a lie?  Is there such thing as absolute truth?  Can you make your life better by learning what is true and what is a lie?
  • My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Journey to Discover Who She Is
    This pink book is full of the questions girls ask about who they are.  Is gender important?  Are the set roles for male and female?  Does being a godly girl mean you have to be meek, quiet and a basic mousy doormat?  The author addresses the importance of the genders and gives biblical background for each point.  My favorite quote of this book is “Being a Godly girl may be tough, but that just means that it isn’t for wimps“.
  • My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Mission to Make a Difference
    The green book is a call to action!  Find your passion; discover your mission; make an impact on your world.  There are biblical examples and real life stories about teens who have found a calling and decided to do something to change the world around them.

P.S. You can read them in any order – but be radical and jump in!

I received these books for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own. No monetary compensation was received.
