Review & Giveaway: Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids


I am fortunate to have the opportunity to review this wonderful book.  My family is going through a bit of a rough period right now and I knew my son could really use this book.  He's 9, so he fits in the recommended age bracket.

I read through it first.  He & I are reading a devotion a day.  He loves it and so do I.  It's giving him a connection to Jesus and our Heavenly Father that I think he needs right now.

Let's check out some info about the book:

Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children's hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.  Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.  Adapted from the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year-winner Jesus Today, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures.  It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.  

Hardcover: 368 pages
Age Range: 6-10 years 

I really believe the author, Sarah Young, knows how to write for children.

Let's catch up on some background of Sarah:


Sarah Young's devotional writings are personal reflections from her daily quiet time of Bible reading, praying and writing in prayer journals.  With sales of more than 14 million books worldwide, Jesus Calling has appeared on all major bestseller lists.  Sarah's writings include Jesus CallingJesus TodayJesus LivesDear JesusJesus Calling for Little OnesJesus Calling Bible StorybookJesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids, and Peace in His Presence -- each encouraging readers in their journey toward intimacy with Christ.  Sarah and her husband were missionaries in Japan and Australia for many years.  They currently live in the United States.
