As a Christian family, it’s important to us to have Biblical literature around for our children to read and understand on their own. Once our kids are capable of reading, we like to purchase a devotional for their age and reading level. So, when I had the opportunity to review VeggieTales Every Day With God arrived, I couldn’t pass it up. Let me just say, it’s a great devotional for kids.
This past Sunday we missed church service, so it was the perfect opportunity to do one of the 365 Daily Devos together.
Our typical Sunday consists of attending softball practice for our eldest daughter after church. Since we didn’t attend church this Sunday, the mission was to have Bible Study after practice.
So, let’s paint the picture of this day. All the kids were up and full steam ahead. The girls decided they needed to argue and fight with one another for a couple of hours straight. Yes, they totally ignored my husband and me.
Instead of getting all worked up like I normally do, I kindly told my husband I would lead the Devotional. I thumbed through Every Day With God and found a lovely devotional to discuss. Day 77, A Home Filled With Love. It was perfect. The first question was, What makes a family? We talked about how Ruth showed love to her family and how we can show love toward one another in our home each and every day.
As we discussed Ruth 1:16 each girl shared how they would show love toward one another a bit better. We explained that it’s ok to argue with one another, we are all human. There just needs to be a stopping point. During this discussion, other scriptures and examples of showing love came up.
Our eldest and middle daughters have their personal devotionals, so our youngest will now have her very own devotional to read each night.
Many times as parents, we do not think about having our children read the Bible to work on reading skills. Now, I’m not trying to convert anyone to Christianity; this is not my calling here on this blog. But, if you are a Christian or even curious about what Christianity is and want to expose your children, this is a great little devotional. Your child is practicing their reading and comprehension skills as well as learning about God.
My daughter loves reading and is excited about reading the short scripture, thought of the day and prayer. Having a 365 day devotional like her big sisters is the best thing ever in her world right now. The photos are bright and cheery, just what young readers need to keep them interested in the text.
