Online With God *review*

Online With God
by Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton

This 90-day devotional written in blog form focuses on the challenges of growing up in a tech crazy world. This book tackles the Internet, text messages, IM’s, chat rooms, emails, PIX, FLIX, cell phones, and much more, offering positive answers for challenging times.

Put God on Your Buddy List. Finding God in the universe of computers and cell phones isn’t as easy as googling his name, but he’s there all the same. And what girl wouldn’t want him with her as she tries to make her way through a galaxy of emails, text messages, IMs, chat rooms—and middle school relationships? Written as a girl’s personal blog to God, Online with God teaches you how to stay safe while using today’s technology. This ninety-day devotional contains relevant Scripture verses, tips on making safe choices, and prayers for all the confusing times in your life. As you read it, you’ll realize that God listens when you blog as well as when you pray. After all, he’s the Lord of the universe—including cyberspace.

Laurie’s first published work was a note passed to a boy in elementary school. You would have thought that this most embarrassing moment would have stopped her writing career. But instead, Laurie is the author of thirty five books and author/illustrator of two more. Laurie lives in rural Ohio with her husband and two daughters and loves writing surrounded by horses, cattle, dogs, cats, and five turkeys.

This is a well written book for teens. The chapters are just the right length to hold the readers attention- not too long but with excellent life application. Online With God hits on some really great topics that teens today deal with in their daily lives. This book is an excellent way for teens to start learning how to do regular daily devotions.

Thanks so much to Zondervan for sending me a review copy of this book.
