Book Review and Giveaway: "Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids"

During this month so associated with love, I am reviewing a book that I am very excited as an aunt to share with my young nieces and nephews along with other beloved young children in my life to show them how much Jesus loves them through devotionals written especially for them. 

"Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids" is 368 pages in length and aimed at ages 6-10 years, but I feel it shares a powerful message to reach readers both young and old. I love that it is worded in first person of Jesus Christ, as though Jesus is writing to the reader. 

About Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids

Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children's hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.  Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.  Adapted from the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year-winner Jesus Today, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures.  It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.  

Here is the book trailer for this inspiring read:

I love that it comes in a sturdy, hardcover format. There are 150 devotions followed by a Scripture index and each devotion is 2 pages in length, which I believe is a very good length for reading to young attention spans. Some of my favorite topics for sharing with children include the power of prayer, hope, self control and peace. Throughout the book are uplifting Bible verses and inspirational sayings by famous writers and beloved preachers.

  1. I was given the blue book 'Jesus Calling' by Sarah Young from a dear friend. My two girls and I take turns reading from it each night before bed. It really helps open up a dialogue between the family and encourages prayer and teaches God's word. To have the kids version would be priceless!!! We would treasure and love to receive this book!!
