As Summer reaches it's midmark for traditional schoolers, you may be thinking about how you are going to keep the bible in your kid's everyday life once Summer ends. Today I have a great way for you to do just that!

Synopsis:

The God Who Saves. The God Who Provides. The Holy One. The names of God tell us who He is and how He loves us—explore the glory and the goodness of God in I Am Devotional.  
Children will learn to trust God in everything as they learn about the names and character of God in the Am Devotional. Through 100 devotions, children will see how God’s names reflect His love, strength, trustworthiness, etc., and what that means as they develop a strong faith.
Name of God: I AM
Meaning: God is to be worshipped
Application: Worship God by how you live!
Diane Stortz has a proven history of connecting well with both children and parents in her writing. With sales of 500,000 inspirational books for children, Diane is a trusted name for Christian families. The art of Diane Le Feyer has captivated readers of I Am and will continue to delight in this accompanying devotional with vibrant illustrations throughout and a vivid cover embellished with foil and lots of striking glitter. The Am Devotional is the perfect companion to I Am, the Bible storybook that first introduced children to the names and character of God.

Review:

Aimed at kids ages 6-10, this daily devotional offers just the right amount! With a page and a half of story/topic, a prayer and thoughts about taking the subjet hand deeper into their lives, aka more thought. The topics are ones that kids face- like lonliness, honesty, integrity, and humility. They teach kids to not only pur their trust in God, but also in themselves and their faith. All of which are VERY important lessons for this age group to learn, before peer pressure really attacks them and their faith!It can be used as a family read, or as a nighky reader for older kids, with family discussion over breakfast! The illustrations are perfectly matched to the topics, and we both really like the book! We highly recommend it for all kids!
