Best-selling author and speaker to release From Blah to Awe in February 2012
Author of best-selling teen book Redefining Beautiful, Jenna Lucado Bishop shares an exciting new message for girls in her upcoming book, From Blah To Awe: Shaking Up a Boring Faith. This nonfiction book offers teen girls insight in how to walk daily with God in a passionate way.  With personal testimony and stories from other teens, Jenna shows girls that a relationship with God is not boring and blah-filled, but an incredible adventure.
“The goal of this book is to shake you up a little,” shares Jenna. “No matter where you are in your faith journey—whether you are new to this God thing or you have known what a relationship with Jesus is like your entire life—when you finish this book, I want you to stop settling. Stop settling for a faith that is dull, boring, blah. So many of us get stuck in a lifeless faith and just stay there, thinking that this is what life with God is about. No! God wants more for us!”
In From Blah To Awe (Thomas Nelson, Trade Paper, ISBN #978-1-4003-1665-7, $14.99), Jenna uses a conversational style in which teens are able to relate. Jenna also encourages her audience to become active readers who participate in the spiritual disciplines listed throughout the novel. As they read the book, teens have multiple opportunities each chapter to reflect on their own experiences to discover that they actually play a very active role in God’s amazing story for their lives.
From Blah To Awe will release in February 2012 and is now available for review via NetGalley. For book inquires and interviews, contact Merge PR.
