The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren is one of those incredible, life changing books for so many so I was thrilled to find The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids!
As I’ve mentioned many times, we do daily devotions with our children. Traditionally this has consisted of Bible stories but as they grow older, we’re starting to weave in more devotional types that dig deeper into the Bible and what it means and not just tell it’s stories.
This is broken up into 365 daily devotions to do in a year. I loved reading the introduction to my kids the first night and discussing with them the meaning of purpose and asking deep questions like if they’ve thought about the purpose of life.
Losing my Dad this summer the kids have had their first close up experience with death and it has brought out a lot of questions, for them and for me. I think the timing of doing this book is perfect and hopefully they will come away having a lot of their questions answered.
I knew from Day 1 that this was going to be a good one. It starts with a Bible verse, then questions and discussion and ends with a prayer. The first day asked “Do you ever wonder: What do I want to be when I grow up? What should I do with my life? What are my dreams?” This was so fun to discuss with my kids and hear about their hopes and dreams. I can see how putting these things in their mind will develop into deeper discussions about the purpose of life.
What I really liked and connected with in addition to the close-knit family discussions it brought out was that these same questions can be asked of adults. I found myself asking some of these questions, thinking about the answers and analyzing how perspective changes from when you are a child. Sometimes you need to hear things from the point of a view of a child to remember your own hopes and dreams and how far you have come and what has changed.
The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids is a really special one. I cherish the family time with my kids and this has made it even more endearing to my heart.
