|The best devotional for kids ever! Mar 8, 2007|
|I am so pleased that I bought this book to read with my kids (aged 9 and 12). The reason I chose this is because we were given #3 in this series a couple of years ago and read it from cover to cover twice and liked it a lot. I actually prefer #2, the stories are so good... and relevant! A perfect way to wind up the kids' days - I have seen several kids devotionals, Bibles, Christian stories etc, but this truly is the best I've ever seen. A true blessing - I'm sure my kids will always remember their bedtime devotionals with their Dad for the rest of their lives!|
|Good resource Jan 9, 2006|
|I read this book in the morning with my 10 and 13 year old children. Even though the subject of salvation does come up frequently, we just enjoy that day and know our salvation is already secure and we don't need to be resaved. However, it usually touches on situations that are relevant to issues my children will face such as the way to treat other people, integrity, love for God and others, appreciating blessings, etc. I am disturbed by the review below that mentions an October 1 entry and non-associated verses from Matthew. I looked up the days which use Matthew 11:28-30 and looked at each story -- none of them deal with that subject. The October 1 entry deals with the opportunity to cheat on a test and the decision to take the grade earned rather than cheat to make a good grade. The other days were about Jesus being with us when we have a heavy load, and parents setting boundaries to protect their children from tempting situations. I have enjoyed the book as it is hard to find something that will "speak" to both my grade school son and my middle school daughter. I would recommend it. Of course, nothing beats the Bible. This is just a path to get there.|
|Yikes! Feb 8, 2005|
|We're here trying to find a replacement for this text because the daily messages frequently ask the reader to accept Jesus as their Savior. It just doesn't make sense. I thought this book was supposed to be for practicing Christians, not for trying to convert your kids. Not everyone is of the Born Again variety and really, what could kids at this age be doing that they need to confess their sins, repent and accept Jesus every week? |
|Save your money, read the Bible instead Jan 4, 2005|
|This book is specifically meant for but not suitable for children. The October 1 entry is a story about a young girl who shares an ugly secret about something her uncle did that made her feel dirty. I'll let you guess the rest. |
Aside from the fact that this story is completely inappropriate for children, there is absolutely no connection between it and the quoted verse in Mathew 11: 28-30
We chucked our book in the garbage.
|This is just horrible Apr 17, 2001|
|Nothing can replace the real Bible, and they come up with all these stupid stories that end with lines like, "You shall be punished, son." This is the craziest book ever written!!! Save your money.|
