Used for a year, not buying again
on January 10, 2013
We used this as part of our homeschool curriculum for a year. This is a great devotion for kids who are really in tune with God, or for parents to do with their kids. It asks a lot of questions about tangible ways God works in the life of the child ("How has Jesus shown himself to you?"), & though these are all great questions - I feel like they're a tad old for 6-9 year olds. Our son is 8, & is a believer on his own, but has a very difficult time answering these questions by himself. Definitely a discussion-type devotion. It's also disheartened our son a bit - he wants to physically SEE Jesus, the way The 12 did. When this devotion uses Bible stories about Jesus & his friends (surprising his friends while they were fishing - after he was crucified), & then the follow-up question is "How was Jesus surprised you with His presence?", my son's heart hurts & longs for tangible relationship with Jesus, the man. I know a lot of people will probably say "You should have done more" or "What are great opportunity to talk, heal, disciple your child", & yes, that is true. We may come back to this devotion in a year or 2, but for now, we are finding another option, something less subjective.
