Looking ahead, on Friday, I'll be writing about the highlights of our week, and MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, Astleigh and I will be doing a Valentine's Day Decor Link-Up! Feel free to join us! :)
As for today, I'm giving away a copy of "Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids"!
On Sunday, I asked Nolan who he learned about in Sunday School, and he answered, "Jesus' disciples". I asked him to tell me more, and he told me that his "favorite characters" are Peter, Jesus, and Andrew (in that order). We've got some very basic theology going on here. ;) But he has a great start to developing a relationship with his Savior.
In the years to come, as he and Ephraim grow and learn to read, I am going to want to grow our collection of kids' Bible stories and devotionals. So when I was offered to review Sarah Young's "Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids", I jumped at the chance.
Sarah Young is also the author of one of my favorite devos, "Jesus Calling". In the past few years, her sales of "Jesus Calling" have grown to 14 million, and it has been on all the major bestseller lists. The book I'm giving away is adapted for children from another book she has written "Jesus Today".
Her "Jesus" books are written as if Jesus is speaking to you--not to claim that they are His words--but to give you a way to connect with Him and with the Living Word. These children's devotionals have verses of Scripture to read and memorize on the right-hand pages.
Here is an excerpt of one of the devotionals. I think it's beautiful language, and it's a good length for a child:
"I am with you--now and forever. But even though you know that I will be with you always, there may be times when you feel far away from Me. When those times come, simply pray, 'Jesus, help me remember that You are here.'
I created everything in this world, in the whole universe. I dotted the sky with stars. I set the moon and sun in their places. I carved out oceans and built up mountains. Every animal, every tree, every blade of grass is here because I created it.
Just look at the world around you, and see how great and powerful I am. There is nothing that can stop Me from keeping my promises to you. Let My Power amaze you, fill you with hope--and remind you that I am with you always."
