"I love this book! It really serves as a quiet time companion for preteens. On the rst day of each week there is a prompt and a place to record prayers and a verse to memorize. For the remainder of the week there is a small portion of Scripture (eventually giving the reader an overview of all the Bible) to read and one question to answer. On the nal day, Sunday, there is simply a summary thought and then prompts to help the child follow along with the sermon at church with some basic questions. is is realistic for a child to do and at the same time will teach them how to develop their daily time with God." Review by Family Ministry Pastor - Robert Parrish

"The attraction of this book is its topical content. It is 52 chapters that cover a lot of God’s truth. e devotions are quick and easy to read with plenty of scripture to challenge your child. Another great feature is that on any given day your child may face a situation, an emotion, or problem that they don’t know how to handle. Being a topical book, the reader can quickly go to the table of contents and nd exactly where to go in the Bible. It is great for scriptural content, but lacks pictures, artwork, and additional supportive family activities. But what it lacks in creativity is made up for by it’s usefulness as a resource tool into God’s truth." Review by Children's Pastor - Jody Burkhalter

"'Indescribable: 100 Devotions about God & Science' by Louie Giglio is a great devotional for any child or child at heart who wants to know more about the incredible and indescribable world that our God created. From singing stars in space, to cross-shaped cells, to the strongest, tiniest creatures called tardigrades, every family will have moments of awe as they read this book together. Each devotion has a connection back to Scripture and a solid life application point. ough this isn’t the most interactive devotion out there, it is sure to create fun discussions for everyone in the family." Review by Children's Director - Patrick Simpson

"Jesus Calling for Little Ones is a book of Devotions for pre- schoolers, written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child’s heart. Based on the original Jesus Calling, this version for little ones has been adapted in a language and style that tod- dlers and preschoolers can understand. Adorably illustrated, Jesus Calling for Little Ones can help parents reassure tod- dlers and preschoolers of Jesus’ never-ending love and constant presence." Review by Preschool Director - Melissa Gleason

 

The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids by Rick Warren is a wonderful devotional for children. Each day includes a Bible verse, a short message, and a prayer which helps children discover who they are in God’s eyes. e devotionals are easy to understand and very relevant. On Day 7, the message says, “In God, you can nd your identity, your meaning, and your destiny. Every other path leads to a dead end.” is devotional will be an incredible journey for your children! ey will learn that their Creator loves them, and they were created with a purpose in mind!
