A Great Daily Devotional Geared at Children

I was given a free copy of the book Bedtime Devotions with Jesus: My Daily Devotional for Kids by Johnny Hunt through the Book Look Bloggers program in exchange for my honest review.

This book is great for young children. My 8-year-old daughter likes to read it with us each night. We haven't really discussed the versus a lot each time, but sometimes she and I will have discussions about what they mean in her life. Her little brothers saw that we were reading this book with her and wanted to join in as well. There are colorful illustrations on the pages that capture the interest of your children and each day's devotional is short so it's easy to fit it in before bedtime. As my daughter gets older, I think we will incorporate more into it. For example, we may actually go to her Bible and read the versus surrounding that devotional verse to put it more into context. We may encourage her to share her thoughts on the verse and how it applies to her life. We may also share our thoughts about how it applies to our lives. She also could memorize some of the verses that are discussed in the devotional as they are generally only a sentence or two long. There are so many different things you can do with this devotional for kids. It is a great conversation starter and a great way to introduce application of the Bible to the lives of children. If you are looking to expand your children's knowledge and application of the Bible, this is a great start.
