And now for a kids book that encourages snuggle time with Mom!

growing with jesus cover



Synopsis: 
As your kids grow, make sure their faith is growing too.
God loves to see children grow—but more than anything, He wants them to grow closer to Him. Kids can grow on the inside by spending time each day with Jesus!
Each of these 100 short devotionals offers a Bible verse, a “Thought to Grow On” devotion, and a challenge that will help kids connect to God and build a relationship with Him. God’s creation is magnified through amazing facts about the world and the unique way God makes each child.
With a vibrant design and super-cool facts that are sure to keep readers’ attention, this book is a perfect choice for growing the faith of kids ages 6 to 10. 
You can check out the sample book HERE

Review:
This is an adorable book of devotions, that is perfect for the early reader and parents to share together. As you can see from the sample, there is a theme on the left page, with an applicable bible verse. Then on the right, Thought to Grown On, that take the topic and apply it to your kids every day life. Then a Today section on what to to for the day (or the next day, if you read at night), and then My Amazing World, with science facts that relate to the topic. In the sample above, it told us 3 babies are born every second, around the world! Miss Grace was eager to read through all of those, as she's a science fanatic! But it is a wonderful book, that encourages discussion between parent and child, and how bible lessons can apply. For instance, Miss Grace brought up 2 bible stories that were applicable to the topic we were reading last night! This is a lovely book and we highly recommend it for your kids and grandkids!

  3. I just asked Alyssa and my six-year-old daughter said that the most amazing thing God has created was her parents (man and woman), because they take care of me, teach me, and play with me. She's been very helpful today. LOL. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book for her!

  7. There were several one that sticks out in my head is the ocean and why does it taste like salt. Another is the Sky and why can't we see Heaven.
