Something new ...


The other day I picked up a couple of devotional books for the kids that I am really excited about. We've been doing them for a few days now and I really like them. The kids do too. I've been feeling lately like I need to spend more dedicated time with the kids ... talking about things more than just "how was school?" One on one, with each of them. These books facilitate that perfectly ...

They each have one.

Alia's ~ God and Me ~ is for girls age 6-9. She's only five but she her understanding level is high, I think. She understands and is able to talk with me about the stuff we are reading each day. One thing I love about these books is that there is so much for the child to do. Heaps of participation. Interaction. Talking. Writing. Thinking.

Jono's ~ Gotta Have God ~ is for boys age 6-9. It is perfect for him. He can write things by himself. I love the things I am hearing from him. He has such a deep understanding. His heart has always been such a soft one and I love to listen as he shares it with me.

Another thing to add to my list! Thanks for sharing these Bonnie. I think it would be over Anya's head, but Kai might be able to do them. What a great idea!

They sound like good ones. It's hard to find devotionals for kids that age.

I looked them up on Amazon too... You can find them here: http://www.amazon.com/God-Devotions-Girls-Ages-6-9/dp/1885358601/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237483962&sr=8-2

The site you linked to appeared to be an Aussie site, I might be mistaken. Amazon is great for us US residents ;)

They sound good. I am glad that you are intentional about teaching your children about God. You are a good mom!

You know what? I have the same exact devotional for Jasmine :)

Actually she has two, one for when she was younger and the other from 5-8 years old I think. They are wonderful ;)

These may be the same ones we had when the kids were younger. They may just have updated covers and that's what has me confused. Plus we've had a few others since then as they've gotten older, but I'm almost positive these are the exact same ones we had.
