I have 2 daughters who will soon be graduating from high school. Not long after that they will be leaving home for college. When they leave I would like to give them each a good devotional that will help encourage them to remember thier beliefs and values. Can anyone recommend a good devotional for this?

I don't know if this will work but it is free for Kindle today:

It may depend on your denomination, but I've really enjoyed the following devotional:

Jesus Calling - Sarah Young
Each entry is written from the POV of Jesus talking directly to the reader.  And each one has the verses she pulled from so the reader can look them up for more context.  I found the entries comforting and encouraging.

Praying the names of Jesus might be a good one. My daughter also enjoyed Jesus Freaks . 

My Utmost for His Highest  by Oswald Chambers is good but you might want to get the updated version.

Godward Life by John Piper is good too.  I hope this helps.

it's not too deep and may be a bit shorter devotionals than preferred but gives great persective to young women!
