Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids – Review and Giveaway

JesusTodayHave you ever wondered what Jesus would say to you if He were sitting right beside you?  Would He say He loves you?  Would He offer advice on day to day situations?

“Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids” by Sarah Young, is a devotional for children. Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you.  The devotional reminds us that He is in control and that amazing things await everyone who puts their faith and hope in Him.

The book is aimed at children ages 6 through 10.  I feel that 6 may be a little young.  I read through several of the devotions with my daughter, but they just didn’t hold her attention. She found them hard to follow and I found myself changing the word “Me” to “Jesus”.

I really like how each devotion ends with multiple scripture verses. It helps your child explore the entire Bible, Old and New Testaments in bite size pieces that are easier for them to comprehend. By choosing related scriptures from various parts of the Bible, it shows your little one how God’s promises are consistent from beginning of the Bible until the end.

The back of the book contains a “Scripture Index”.  If you are looking for a specific scripture you can check here to see if it’s in the devotional. I personally would have loved to see an additional “Index by Topic”.  I think this would make it easier for younger children to find devotionals, when they need them most.

The book is very consistent in it’s layout.  Each devotional follows the same pattern, Number, Title, Devotion and Scripture.  The font is easy to read and each devotion only takes a few minutes to read.  There is also a ribbon bookmark to help keep track of where you are.

“Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids” is a book that you could read several times over and find something new each time.  It’s a great way to end the day with your child, talking about the promises that are laid out in the Bible for each and every one of us.
