These are personal devotions for children. They can also be used for devotionals with groups of children. The book is written for ages 8 -12. There are crafts and recipes to go along with the devotions.

Character building is an essential part of the Christian life. Good character builds life-long values. Children need to develop morals and values. Children need to learn and understand the Word of God. Children love to get involved in learning with hands-on activities. Every child can make character values a part of their life! Is your child developing good character? As a family you can help your child develop a love for reading the Bible and discussing how it relates to you. By doing the devotions together—reading the Bible verses and thoughts, singing the songs, praying the prayers, making the recipes and crafts—you are helping to build your child’s character. Share the book with your children’s minister, club leader, Sunday school teacher and others who work with children ages 8-12. These 118 pages of devotions and Bible verse studies will speak directly to your child. They speak to them in their language. They will enjoy the songs because of their familiar tunes with new words, so they can learn to sing them quickly. The recipes and craft activities are simple and can easily be prepared by your child. Make it a family project to share quality time with your child. Although the book is written for your child’s personal devotions, the devotions can be used for family devotions, home school morning devotions, in a classroom or anywhere children are present. Give the book as a gift to teachers, parents, grandparents, club leaders or anyone who cares for children. Any child who makes Bible study and prayer a part of their daily life will develop morals—what a rewarding task! This book helps to build character one child at a time.


Wonderful book—just what I was looking for!
