I have been teaching children in Sunday School, VBS, Christian School and more for over 10 years. I have discovered that kids from Christian homes often do not have a good understanding of the gospel. Children need to know not just bible stories, but how much God loves them, what He did for them, and that he is calling them to love others they way he loves them. (Check out the free preview.)
This 9 week devotional booklet was created to help young children develop their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. (I would recommend for 1st-6th grade.) Each week focuses on one memory verse. (Visuals are included for the memory verses.) There are 4 days of reflective questions for each week. Verses focus mainly on God's love, loving others, the gospel, and how to follow Jesus. Should take between 5-10 minutes per day.
Each day includes:
1. What are you thankful for?
2. Reflective questions about the bible verse.
3. A prayer suggestion.
4. A section for prayer requests is included at the beginning of the booklet.
Younger children will need help reading, but the writing lines will work for all ages. I have really enjoyed discussing the questions with my class because they get into the nitty gritty of life as a kid, and helps them to take a more honest look at where they are, and where they need to be.
