Book Review: A Believe Devotional For Kids: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus

Book Description

Written for children 6-10, the Think, Act, Be Like Jesus; A Believe Devotional for Kids is part of the national church-wide program led by bestselling author Randy Frazee that shows children how they can think, act, and be more like Jesus, with 90 devotions from the Old and New Testament.
They know the story of the Bible, but do they know what it means?
This 90-Day devotional, written by Oak Hills Church pastor Randy Frazee, is part of the church-wide, ground-breaking Believe campaign and encourages children to follow the footsteps of Jesus. Think, Act, Be Like Jesus; A Believe Devotional for Kids shares the message that the more you believe, the more Jesus can change you from the inside out to become the best person you can be.
As children ages 6-10 walk through 90 devotions from the Old and New Testament—they’ll complete a journey that will take them closer to the heart of Jesus and deeper into the words of Scripture. They’ll learn what the Bible has to say about everything from the nature of God and the identity of Jesus, to prayer, worship, and the fruit of the Spirit. Foundational and faith-building, this book can be used by individuals or in conjunction with the all-church campaign.

My Reflections:

When I had the opportunity to review this devotional I was absolutely thrilled!  I am always on the lookout for relevantin-depth and fun devotionals for my kids; this one jumped out at me right away.

Upon receiving this devotional I was immediately impressed with the quality of the binding (hard cover and sturdy) The pages were thick and glossy, colorful and well laid out. It was a pleasure to read and review this devotional. A wonderful resource for children ages 8-12.

The true test came when it was time to work through the devotional with my children. I was excited and eager to share this devotional with them, as it was exactly what I was looking for a fresh, fun and in depth way to share our time together in the word. I am sure as we work through this book my children and I will have many opportunities to study scripture and delve into new and exciting topics. My little one has a passion for reading right now and she was very happy to be able to turn the glossy new pages in her little hands and read to me!

I love the layout of this devotional it has 3 categories titled:
Think, Act and Be. Under these headings is sub categories which explore deeper topics relevant the the main category. An example would be the first category Think, it has: 

God, Personal God, Salvation, The Bible, Identity in Christ, Church, Humanity, Compassion, Stewardship and Eternity.
Each devotional starts with scripture and questions then ends with a prayer.

I would highly recommend this devotional if you have a child in this age range, it would certainly make a nice Christmas gift!

I received this book free of charge in return for my honest review form Book Look Bloggers. 
Thank you Book Look!
