Item description for Growing with Jesus: 100 Daily Devotionals by Andy Holmes...
Overview Designed to promote spiritual growth, this collection of devotional readings is comprised of Bible verses, thoughts to grow on, and amazing facts about the world. Reprint.
God loves to see us grow But more than anything, He wants us to grow closer to Jesus. Just as we mature physically, we can also grow on the inside. How? By spending time each day with Jesus.
"Growing with Jesus: 100 Daily Devotionals" contains 100 quick readings to help the reader grow stronger in his or her faith. Each devotion provides a Scripture verse, a fun thought to grow on, and a fascinating 'factoid' about our amazing, ever-growing body and the world around us From the uniqueness of our fingerprints to a shark that goes through 24,000 teeth to how our body grows at night and then shrinks back during the day.
"Growing with Jesus" is the one book that will help kids grow as much on the inside as they're growing on the outside

Great Devotional May 21, 2004
I have been reading this devotional with my 5 year old daughter every morning. It is wonderful for her. She understands it and it's not a lot for her to take in. Highly recommend this book. When we are done I will probably start over at the beginning again.
Devotionals that make sense for kids Jul 29, 2002
These devotionals make sense to kids, without talking down to them. They include a bible verse, a devotional message for the day, an affirmation/exercise, and a neat trivia fact. The topics are religious in nature, but very real world, day-to-day stuff... like being a good friend, taking care of yourself, being aware of your thoughts, managing your emotions, respecting other people... stuff even us adults could benefit from reading on a daily basis!
Delightful Aug 20, 2001
This devotional is exactly what I had hoped it would be for our five year old. Each topic is a simple, two-page spread with easy to understand explanations. It even includes a "child-sized" application for each day. This is a very age-appropriate devotional for young children. The authors have helped me as a parent to bring simplified biblical truths to my young child in a way she can understand and relate to.
Enjoyable devotional for the young May 31, 2001
I've only gotten through the first 30 days of this book with my 4 year old and based on that, would recommend this book.
Each day starts with a bible verse and then goes on with a simple, short section about what the verse is about and what it is trying to teach you. Often times, the author does this by giving an example that a young child could understand. Example: "How do you feel when you see someone getting something you'd like to have? Does it bother you inside, or are you truly happy for them?" The author then continues about how jealousy hurts you (the jealous one) and suggest the child imagine what it would feel like if it were he/she receiving the present and then to switch that excitement over to them. It then directs the child on what to do today to apply the lesson just learned. Each day ends with a section called "My Amazing World" which gives interesting facts or piece of history but it doesn't always relate to the lesson of the day.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that there are some things that my 4 year old has not experienced and therefore cannot relate to. The days that discussed peer preasure and dirty words are two examples. I still find it a valuable tool in teaching my child god's lessons and use each day's devotional as a spring board to discuss how god wants us to live our lives.
