Book Review + Giveaway ~ Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids by Sarah Young

Sarah Young
Juvenile Nonfiction/Devotional
Ages: 7-12

Back of the book:

Help your child develop an intimate relationship with the Lord through daily time with Him and His Word.

Each daily devotion is based on Scripture and written as though Jesus is speaking directly to your child!

Adapted from the original Jesus Calling devotional, with the same themes and scriptures as the adult version, this beautiful deluxe format is a great choice for families.

My thoughts:

Not only is this an awe inspiring book it is a visually appealing book. It has a leather like cover that makes it feel nice in your hands. The popular burnt orange and teal colors will draw your tween to the book.

Tama Fortner has adapted the original adult version of this book into a very readable form for kids. Each day contains a scripture and then a reading about that scripture that comes from the point of view of Jesus speaking to you. The day's reading is then ended with a suggested passage of scripture to read on your own.

My first thought about this book was how perfectly it would work for family devotions since children and parents share the same devotional themes in each day's readings. In my opinion this would make a great conversation starter over dinner each night. 

This would make a wonderful gift for that special occasion for the tweens in your life. I look forward to giving a few copies as gifts to my oldest grand and my niece and nephews.

  1. Maybe by giving it to them in a gift basket, and hoping that they'll read it and come to know Jesus.

  2. I would put it in a gift basket with some snacks etc. I would also include a little note and tell that person how special they were to you and Jesus and you picked this book out to encourage them.
