A boundary-breaking devotional for 7-11 years that aims to help children know who they are in Christ.

There are so many distractions in life and it's easy to look for answers in all the wrong places, yet this book is an encouragement to look towards Jesus - no matter what's up!

Engaging and fun, easy to read and accessible to all, the hopeful and reassuring words within this book tackle topical issues that young people face. Filled with inspiring Bible verses, purposeful prayers and space to reflect, What's Up facilitates spending time with God and helps to explore our God-given identity. The fun style of the book is eye-catching, and uses a range of engaging, child friendly graphics to bring to life the real-life stories told. This devotional also includes fun facts, challenges and opportunities to reflect and grow.

Based on a range of experiences, Joanna has shared 30 encouragements that speak directly to some of the adventures and setbacks that tweens face as they grow and walk along their path in life. Whether it is reassuring those who lack confidence and are feeling left out, those facing challenging and uncertain choices, or young readers who need reminding that they are important, valuable and heard, the very personal voice of Joanna shines through the pages of this book, supporting, guiding and encouraging readers, whilst being open and honest-rather like a big sister.

Joining Joanna, in cheering all readers on and offering encouragements from their own unique perspectives, are some of Joanna's friends - Rhys Stephenson (TV presenter), Emma Borquaye (Girlgotfaith), Pete Sheath (Creative media director) and Tracy Wood (Salvation Army Children's worker).

What's up is also available as an eBook, and an audiobook with the devotional content read by the author herself, so enabling even the most reluctant of readers to engage with the content.

Anmeldelser

«This lively and beautifully written set of devotions, based largely on Joanna's own childhood experiences, will surely help the children in your life grow closer to the God who made and loves them.»

BOB HARTMAN, author and performance storyteller

«Joanna has written an incredible must-read devotional for the rising stars, equipping and empowering them to live out their faith to the fullest. This is a fun and interactive reading experience for all ages!»

CALLEDOUT MUSIC, international gospel artist and songwriter

«I wish this book had been available for me! I know this will inspire my kids' faith - it's real and practical, fun and engaging. The content is so helpful for primary-schoolers who want to know Jesus better every day. I highly recommend it.»

ABBY GUINNESS, head of Spring Harvest

«I feel as though I've personally prayed this book into being! It is so necessary, now more than ever. We are the only Bibles some of the young people in our worlds will ever read. And what Joanna has done here is SUCH a great representation of her fun, funky approach to knowing Jesus. Buy at least ten copies just to give away!»

CHIP KENDALL, worship artist and presenter

«Joanna is everyone's best champion and cheerleader! This jampacked, heartfelt, creative book is exactly what I needed as a young person - and even as an adult now!»

MARTHA SHRIMPTON, founder of Nimbus Collective and author of Wow! Jesus

«I defy anyone to not have their hope raised by this fun-tastic devotional. Its pages are dripping with wisdom, truth, and joy. It's the antidote to many of cultures' prevalent messages, and will cause faith to arise in the heart of every young reader! Joanna is a joy-carrier, the overflow of her day-by-day walk with the Spirit. The pages of this book are like moments with her, leading the reader to raise their eyes heavenward.»

DAVE HILL, Bethel Kids Director and HeartSmart founder

«Joanna knows just what children need from a devotional. She has drawn upon her own faith experience to collate a wonderful selection of relatable personal experiences, Bible verses, and creative ways to process thoughts and feelings. This is an ideal devotional to develop faith through journalling and to prepare young hearts for the future.»

GEMMA HUNT, TV presenter and author

«It can be hard to find books for 7-11s that are faith-filled but also really fun and engaging. What’s Up ticks all the boxes. Joanna's warm writing style teamed with the lively illustrations will pull young readers in and help them to question, challenge, and build their faith without even realizing they're doing it. With contributions from other awe-inspiring Christians, it's a great way to open up dialogue around issues such as fear, friendship, grief, and anger. A must-read for the pre-teens in our families and churches.»

DEBRA GREEN OBE, executive director, Redeeming Our Communities

«Children need voices like Joanna's to offer sound wisdom, a non-judgemental perspective, and a faith-filled reminder of the thing that's most important: Jesus. What's Up is the ideal companion to a young person in the process of making their parents' faith their own or starting to learn about God from scratch. The bite-sized encouragements are an accessible and wise reminder to kids that we should always 'look up', no matter 'what's up'.»

LAUREN WINDLE, author, presenter and public speaker

«Joanna has not only crafted a wonderful book but also a heartfelt message that resonates with a young audience. Her genuine heart for young people shines through every page.This book serves as a fantastic resource, fostering self-confidence in children through interactive elements that provide practical tools for personal growth. But what really sets this book apart is its beautiful integration of God's love. Joanna skillfully weaves a narrative showcasing unconditional love, encouraging children to embrace and radiate that love in their lives. I highly recommend Joanna's book to parents, caregivers, and anyone looking to inspire the young hearts around them.»
