Dear College Girl is a 31-day devotional to encourage current or soon-to-be college girls to live godly lives in school. We asked five women to contribute to this book—women who walked through college seeking to honor Jesus and glorify Him. Each letter contains wisdom from Scripture, personal experience, and godly insight on topics like temptation, integrity, finding a church, time management, making friends, and so much more. The simple layout includes space to process and pray following each letter. This book can be used as a personal daily devotional or as a tool to go through with a friend or mentor.
This is a perfect graduation gift for a high school senior, or a “just because” prize for a college student you know and love! Below you can read more about each of the contributing writers.
Jessica attended the University of Georgia in Athens and majored in Early Childhood Education and Spanish.
Fun fact: "I thought I was going to go straight to grad school, but the Lord had other plans for me. He rekindled a dream I had to live in Mexico and I lived there for two years! One of the best decisions I ever made.
PS: I still haven’t gone back to grad school.
Taylor attended the University of Tennessee Knoxville (Go Vols!) and majored in Political Science, Religious Studies, and American Studies.
Fun fact: “I was totally planning on going to law school until God called me to girls ministry my senior year of college, and I’m so thankful that God gave me the grace to follow His lead even when it meant letting go of my own plans!”
Gretchen attended the University of Georgia in Athens and majored in Fashion Merchandising.
Fun fact: "After college I moved to Tennessee to work at a church and ended up meeting my husband at middle school camp. He is the only guy I’ve ever dated and I met him in the least likely place! That summer taught me that God is always doing a million things behind the scenes for His glory!"
Rachael attended Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and majored in Social Work with a minor in Psychology.
Fun fact: “I spent six weeks in Cape Town, South Africa the summer after my sophomore year of college. I worked with a non-profit ministry called Living Hope and did an internship for Social Work! I also went sky diving while there and it was the most fun thing I’ve ever done! My now husband went shark-cage diving with Great White Sharks, but I most definitely passed on that one!”
Whitney attended the University of Georgia in Athens and majored in Political Science.
Fun fact: “During my freshman year of college, God used a documentary to plant a desire in my heart to adopt and now, 10 years later, God has brought that dream to fruition, and we are in the process of adopting a little girl from India.”
