Jesus Calling Devotionals Review & GIVEAWAY

 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 and grow closer to Jesus!

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!

Book 1:

Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

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!

 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.

Book 2:

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.

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.

Book 3:

  1. My choice would be Book 1:
    Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

    My grandchildren would love to snuggle as I read them the devotional. (Granddaughter could probably read them to the others too.) The world is such a busy and demanding place. We all need to know and be reminded of Jesus’ love and presence.

  2. Renee' Wimberly says:

    I love love to have all of them but especially Jesus Calling for Little ones! I have 7 year old twins (a boy and a girl) and my daughter has started doing her own bible journaling and just made a new prayer journal this week.!

  3. Diana Johnson says:

    The Jesus Calling Little Ones would be so perfect for my seven-year-old granddaughter who just got saved during Vacation Bible School. She loves to read and this looks like a book that she would be interested in reading.

  4. It is my greatest desire to see my two little girls come to know Christ. I pray every day that they will see Jesus through my actions and I can be an example to them. I know that I need to be in the word daily and allow God to speak to me through prayer and even books like Jesus calling. I love that there is also a book geared towards children and feel that it could have a great impact on them growing up. I cherish times where we lay in bed in the evenings and read gods promises together.

    I pray that these books will change the lives of whoever wins this giveaway!

  5. Paula Garcia says:

    I would love to win. I would use them for my family. I want to become closer to God. I have not read any of the books.

  6. Donna Rolls says:

    Would love to share with my husband!

  7. Lorie Cockman says:

    What a great giveaway! These are all very appealing. I am looking for something to do with my junior high boys and a toddler’s girl during the up coming school year. These would be perfect!

  8. Bridgette says:

    Love Jesus calling they speak to the heart..would give the teenage to my daughter as she grows closer to God.. The little one for my niece and nephew to learn more about him

  9. Leslie G. says:

    I would actually love all of them, my family could really use all of them.

  10. Leslie G. says:

    I would love to give the first devotional to my daughter, and the one for little ones to my grandchildren.

  11. margret wayne says:

    I started reading the “Jesus calling” again after my dad said he received a copy from my niece . He absolutely loves it! I love that the devotionals are just what I need for that day, and with my first grandbaby on the way , these would be perfect for my daughter and myself to teach him about how much God loves him.

  12. book 4 for the little ones I sure would like to give it to my granddaughter …learning about Jesus from a young age pave the foundation in his world we live in.

  13. Jesus calling: enjoying peace in his presence to regain my connection to the Lord.

  14. Gen McClure says:

    My fiance and I have 4 girls between the ages of 3 – 8 so books 3 & 4 will get lots of use. Book 1 would be great for me or my mom who I would pass it on to after I am done. I would take Book 2 to my Church and give it to the teen/young adult pastor for him to give to the teen he thinks would like/benefit from it.

  15. Enjoying Peace in his Presence- I am trying to discipline myself to devote my first part of my morning to Gods word instead of the news and all of the hate and violence. Give God my best.

  16. Shy Taggart says:

    I’ve just started reading Jesus is Calling which was given to me by a friend. It’s message reminded me today that Christ lives in me and it made me feel comforted knowing he is with me at all times – guiding and encouraging me. I would like these devotionals so that I could give them to others – pay it forward so to speak, since it was so freely given to me.

  17. I loved Jesus Calling (original one) so much I HAD to pass it on to a friend. I would love to read through it again!

  18. Ojo-solomon Love says:

    I’ll have to say book 1, right now I’m trying to learn more about what God’s kind of love is really and I think this devotional will help me achieve this. Thanks
