I received a free copy of this product as a member of Zondervan's Kidz Review Krew in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

I get to review a lot of wonderful books in this line of work, but I was especially excited to receive this:
I've only had the chance to review one other Catholic book over the years, so I was excited when this new one showed up on my doorstep.

This is a pretty typical devotional for teens that focuses on helping them discover answers for the great "Who Am I?" question that they all have.

I really like how it makes the point that God, the great I AM, wants to help readers recognize their potential and help them be all that they were created to be.

This is achieved through 90 devotions from a Catholic perspective, each helping the reader think, act, and be like Jesus while growing faith and self-esteem.

The layout for each one is pretty typical, beginning with a Bible verse, then a bit of lesson text, followed by a prayer. The devotions conclude with a "Digging Deeper" section, providing reflection questions to journal, and each page also features a related inspirational quote from a saint.

Every 6 devotions are followed by a "R&R: Rest & Remember" journaling page. I love that this is included, because it helps serve as a reminder to break out of the routine and spend the Sabbath in rest.

The book concludes with an "Examination of Conscience" page as well as indexes for where teens can look (in this book) when feeling certain ways and wondering certain things.

Since I don't have a teen yet, I'll likely save this book for when Gv gets a bit older (might make a good Confirmation present!), but I'm excited to already have such a great, encouraging resource for when she gets older!

You can get a copy of All I Am here, and help your teen figure things out with God's help!
