Today’s teen girls are coming of age in a world full of shallow distractions and divided communities. To counter these crazy days, bestselling author Sophie Hudson offers Grace Upon Grace, a journaling devotional to encourage young women to spend time engaging with Scripture, insightful devotional thoughts, and the wild gift of God’s grace.

Teen girls and young women will read, write, and walk away with tons of encouragement and a new understanding of God’s goodness toward us.
Women are searching for wisdom beyond themselves, for discernment that makes God’s will and way clear for daily living. No books in Scripture hold more instruction for how to live according to divine wisdom than do Psalms and Proverbs, and these daily devotions mine their riches with choice, seasoned counsel. Blessed will be the woman who pursues this path to wisdom with passion and commitment.
