I know we are not that far into January, but have you ever picked up a book and made a proper judgment based off of a couple pages you were able to quickly read? This is one of those times for me. I had been praying for a book like this to come my way. We have read through the Jesus Calling book for kids and we also read through the comic version of the Bible a couple years ago, but I wanted something more straight-forward applicable for my children’s ages.
I love how this one is short, sweet and to the point. I also love how it takes each daily verse and makes it short, blunt and easy to understand. It also has a small paragraph at the end of each day; an example of how young children could apply it to their own lives that day. I have gotten so much out of this book even at my age of 29. That is exactly what happened when we read through the the Jesus Calling Bible, kid’s version, 2 years ago. It seems like if you just take God at His Word, it is much more simple than we typically make it. I know we need to grow in the Word, don’t get me wrong. But I have this butterfly feeling in my stomach when I read this book. I am telling you, you just need to read it for yourself and when you do, come back to my blog and give your own rating! For me, it’s 5 stars.
This was from today. I decided to use some of these scriptures for our memory verses, and though today is actually January 13th, we are a little ahead in our devotional. When we got it for Christmas I just couldn’t wait ya know…
Not my best font style or artwork, but our markers are already running low! I will give those bistro markers a rating of their own. Colorful for the 1st few weeks but if you are like us and use them a lot they are looking to have a lifespan of approx. 30 days. Bluh. Bistro markers for a chalkboard get 3 stars.
