Jesus Today: Devotions For Kids {Review and Giveaway}

It is very important to me that we have our Bible time before we start of school time. This was not something that I grew up with, but it is something I feel is imperative to get our day focused on the Lord. It has become a vital part of our daily routine. We have used different studies and devotionals in the past, but I was on the look out for a new one as we had just completed one. It seemed to be perfect timing when I received an email about reviewing Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids.

This 368 page, hard-cover devotional by Sarah Young is a great devotional for families to read together, or it can be read independently by slightly older children (recommended age range is 6-10 years old). As I mentioned, we have been reading it together during our morning Bible time. Each day, for 150 days, you will read a devotion that is written as if Jesus is speaking directly to you. Then there are 2-4 relevant verses. It is a lovely way to get your minds focused on the Lord.

About Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids
Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children's hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.  Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.  Adapted from the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year-winner Jesus Today, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures.  It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.  

Hardcover: 368 pages
Age Range: 6-10 years 

I have to admit, at first I felt funny reading the daily reading because when I said the words "I" or "my," it sounded as if I was the one promising these thing to the children, and not Jesus. I just had to remind the children (and thus myself) that they needed to think that it is Jesus that is talking to them. I would think this would feel more like Jesus was talking to the child if they were reading it themselves. This is a lovely devotional that helps a child put their hope in Jesus. I definitely recommend this Jesus Today: Devotions For Kids by Sarah Young.
