Jesus Today-Devotions for Kids {A FlyBy Review}

When I moved from Florida, my home for over 20 years, to North Carolina, a sweet older sister in Christ bought me a devotional book called Jesus Calling.  What a treasure that book was (and still is!) to me as I struggled to establish myself and my family in a new town and with new friends.  It was great to have a reminder that while a lot had changed, who I am in Jesus remains constant.  So when I received the opportunity to review a devotional book by the same author written for children, I jumped at the chance!

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.  

Hardcover: 368 pages

Age Range: 6-10 years

OBM says:  This devotional is everything I loved about Jesus Calling and more.  It has that same conversational tone as if Jesus is speaking to the reader directly, but is written in language that a 6-10 year old can understand.  And the Bible verses that each devotional takes it's inspiration from are written out so they are easy to read right along with the daily message.  It makes it easy to have meaningful, intentional time with your children discussing who Jesus is and what He's done for them.  My 10 year old enjoyed it so much she suggested we do it with her older siblings as well. :)

Nowadays, it seems everyone and everything is on the web, and even books have more social media links than I do, lol.  But here are all the different ways you can connect to learn more about Jesus Today.
