I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T


"But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life."
Romans 6:22
This book, though it was long and dragging, did have many great encouragements and examples of a what a salve of Christ is. 
It went through what slaves use to look like and how they acted.  Roman slaves were glad to be linked to their masters, especially if he was higher in class, so that they could claim status for themselves.  It made me think of how much more amazing it is for us to be slaves of God, because He created everything and is the highest master of all!
We are slaves of Christ, which is the highest honor ever.  Everyone is a slave to someone or something.  Most people think they are in control of their own lives and they get to decide what they what to do and how they want to live, but they are either slaves of sin or slaves of Christ.  I find it very encouraging that God is Master over all, even the devil himself.
