Engaging Devotions for the Youngest Members of the Family Apr 15, 2008
"Blessings Every Day" is a collection of Christian devotions for each day of the year written and illustrated for young children. Each dated page focuses on a passage from scripture and includes a reflection on that theme along with a colorful, cute, and detailed illustration. The intention of each devotion is to help foster the child's knowledge of God, His world and purpose, as well as His expectations for all people. The words of the book continually reassure the child of God's unconditional and everlasting love, faithfulness, and forgiveness, while also illustrating important lessons such as loving others, telling the truth, doing acts of mercy and service, and overcoming fears, obstacles, and adversity. Further, the daily devotions encourage children to reflect upon their ideas about God and the beauty of creation and asks them simple yet profound questions to ponder. This book has proven to be an absolute gem in our household and has opened up many lively discussions about God and the way things are. Both our two year old and four year old are able to focus attentively on the passages as well as actively participate in the lessons, which they prefer to be read continuously like a story. As for older children, they may prefer to read it day by day and spend more time in reflection of the day's lesson, as the book intends. Either way, all ages will benefit from the lessons taught in these devotions and will grow deeper in their faith and knowledge of Christ. Although the book cover recommends this book for ages 2-5, I think it would be enjoyable and beneficial for elementary school aged children as well, at least up through grades 2 or 3, as the questions the book raise can be quite profound and examined at a deeper level by kids with more life experience. I highly recommend this book for all Christian families as the information is general and Bible-based and does not gear itself toward any specific denomination.
My Favorite Children's Devotional. Mar 28, 2008
I read this book to my kids every morning while I eat breakfast. The devotionals encourage children that God loves them, that He cares about the details of their lives, and that He will keep them safe. My kids usually run around while I'm reading, but they're getting the message:). And it takes fewer than two minutes to read each devotional. Can't beat that.
Blessings for Toddlers/Preschoolers Jan 20, 2008
I have two children under the age of 4 (and one on the way). This book has become a treasured part of our morning routine. While the kids are still seated at the breakfast table I read the devotion to them and then we pray together. The devotions are concise with spiritual wisdom appropriate for little ones and lays a good foundation for a life of seeking God and His Word daily. I find it well-written for 2-4 year olds (and maybe a little older reading on their own).
