This week I’ve been taking an inventory of our family’s devotionals and thinking about what to do this year for individual quiet times. Once school begins, I will have 5 children in 4 different schools and 4 daily schedules. You can see why streamlining a quiet time routine for them is so important, right?
For the last 4 years, my favorite devotional both for myself and the children is Jesus Calling. There are so many reasons to love these devotionals, but today I’m going to briefly explain each book’s features so you know what you’re getting if you win! After Monday’s post about scheduling time with God and this giveaway, I know someone is going to be inspired to begin using this fabulous Jesus Calling Devotional set!
The devotions in Jesus Calling are simple, yet challenging. Each day’s read is a wonderful reminder of Jesus’ love and presence every day of the year. There have been so many times over the years when I read this devotional that I knew God was using it in my life. The Scriptures listed would often be just the ones I needed to focus on for that day. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read through this devotional, but I think it’s been 5 times. Yes, it’s that good!
The second book in the giveaway today is the same as the first, only it has a cool design your teens will love! (Purchase info: By Sarah Young – Jesus Calling – Teen Edition: Enjoy Peace in His Presence (9.9.2012) ) I love that the hardback makes this book hold up in the busy lives and teens and young adults. Slipping it into a backpack is no problem or for car pools, you could leave it in a vehicle side door pocket.
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids
Then we have the children’s devotional version of Jesus Calling! The devotional is designed for ages 7-12 and I feel confident that the book is age-appropriate. I will add that my children have enjoyed this devotional even at younger ages, as my youngest loves to listen to the older children read as well. One of the fun features of this book is that the devotional your child reads and the devotional you as the parent will read are the same material. So you can each read your own version and discuss your observations for that day.
The last book in today’s giveaway is Jesus Calling for Little Ones. This book is designed especially for preschoolers and toddlers. The short devotions in this book reassure young children of Jesus’ love for them. I just love the sweet illustrations in this version!
So that’s it, Friends. Today’s giveaway is for one person to win all 4 books. What if you don’t have a preschooler? Makes the perfect gift for a niece, nephew, or grandchild. You could donate it to your church’s preschool wing. What if you don’t have a teenager? Chances are that there is a teen in your neighborhood who could use the devotional to grow their faith! So whoever is blessed with winning the giveaway today just might have the opportunity to bless someone else with it!
