Notes from Melody and Emily’s mom:
The devotional is 90 days. It is illustrated and colorful with creative drawings. This devotional gets kids thinking about the plans God has for them. There are a few long pages, but each day’s devotion is short and sweet. It points to the future and faith. It reminds kids that God has a plan and purpose for each one of us. While we have other devotionals that are “meatier” and dig a bit deeper into the Word, this one is perfect for us to end our day. There are no days listed, so you are free to read as many or as few pages as you like and reflect on the thoughts on God’s plan for us or connects us to a story of God’s plans for one of the people in the Bible. The journal has prompts to guide kids in their thinking of what their talents may be. We are all different, but we can work together to better the world around us. You know I love a good journal. (There is also a picture book for younger kids.)
