Kids Devotional Books
All of these books have been a blessing to our family over the years. The boys have each used "A Faith to Grow On" for their own personal quiet times in days gone by. Pastor John MacArthur teaches the basic truths of God's Word faithfully in an easy to understand format...in "bite-sized" chunks. The book pictured above has a different cover than the one you will find at the link provided, but the content is the same.
The "Miller Family Series" of books incorporates Biblical truths into stories that each of our children have enjoyed. We have used these books as read-aloud supplements to the Word of God during quiet times. The Miller family is fictional and the stories are set in an Amish community.
"Leading Little Ones to God" has a more in depth and thorough handling of the Doctrines of Scripture. Do not be afraid to delve into these deeper truths with your children...they are very rich and necessary for their appreciation of the God we serve. This book has chapters that are usually only a couple of pages long; a very manageable amount for family devotional times. You will likely find that the ideas presented here will facilitate wonderful discussions with your children. Once again, the cover is different from the one you will find at the link, but the content largely remains the same.
Seek, with the Lord's help, to set aside time each day to have devotions with your children. We are, after all, to "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
**I have noticed that there are those that get reimbursed for their "reviews", which is just fine. But, I am not one of them...this (and all other recommendations that I have made) are completely unsolicited and represent my humbly submitted opinion**
