We do nightly devotions as a family so I’m always looking for new devotionals. It’s kind of hard to find something that my six and seven year olds both like and that my husband and I can get something out of. The two year old doesn’t pay much attention at this point but when it comes to him; shorter is better!
They were all eager to read Jesus Today Devotions for Kids and even my toddler liked the look of the book because of the birdie on the cover. It’s a cute, modern hardback cover with a fun design that appealed to us all.
I always read the introduction first to get a feel for the pulse of the book and I was really excited about this one. I just knew from her words that the subject matter would be perfect for my elementary school kids. Young talks about hope in her intro and that’s something we’ve actually been discussing a lot.
My kids have had to face death for the first time this past year in the loss of their Grandpa and have been deeply affected by it ever since. The topic of heaven has become a regular one around here and they have a lot of questions and fears.
The very first devotion is called “My Kind of Hope.” We read it on a night we had just been talking about hope so the timing was perfect. The devotional itself is short at just one page but has enough depth to it to elicit a great discussion. The corresponding page has Bible verses relating to the topic. It has the verses completely written out but since my kids can both read now, I’m having them look them up to learn where all the books of the Bible are. It’s also fun to see the different translations.
The second devotion called “Not One Single Thing” also had impeccable timing. It talks about how nothing can separate us from God’s love and my daughter has been struggling with that. She worries when she’s bad she’s not going to heaven or that mommy and daddy don’t love her anymore. I’m not sure where this insecurity is coming from but it was so helpful to read this and talk with her about God’s unconditional love.
So far each day has been like this where the topic is completely relatable. I look forward to each one knowing how relatable they are for my elementary school aged kids. It’s wonderfully written on their level with topics they can completely understand. It’s for kids 6 – 10 so two of mine fall right in that range.
Jesus Today Devotions for Kids is a wonderful addition to our devotional library and one I think we will all take a lot away from. Enter to win a copy below to start enjoying with your own family!
