Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids

Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids
by Sarah Young

This children's devotional is appropriate for a varied audience age range.  While recommended for ages 4-8, children up to 12 or 13 can benefit from this book, maybe even more so than 4 and 5 year olds.  A versatile book that will last for years in any home.  Each day of the year has its own page, making it great for daily personal study for the child, or as an addition to table or family devotions.  

Each devotional starts with a topic appropriate bible verse, preceding the devotional text.  There are additional verses following the study, encouraging the child to "Read on Your Own", promoting further study for the more advanced ages.  For the reading child, this book, and especially the "Read on Your Own" section promotes spiritual growth and encourages a deeper walk with Christ.  For the non-reading child, this book provides an opportunity for parents to spend time daily encouraging and teaching their child to get into the Bible and grow in their walk with Jesus while reading and discussing the devotional with them each day.

Well organized an in a language appropriate for young children, yet deep enough to encourage discussion and learning, this devotional would make a great learning and growing tool in any home, providing discussion topics, family time and personal growth.
