I have always loved Focus on the Family. It’s truly an inspirational organization with great resources for families. Plus, I am always on the lookout for new way to help my children grow spiritually so when I saw that I could review 90 Devotions for Kids, from Focus on the Family, I jumped on the chance.
90 Devotions for Kids is from the Adventures in Odyssey division. Adventures in Odyssey are audio stories that help kids to grow in character through spiritual and moral aspects of their character. If you would like more information about Adventures in Odyssey please visit their website here.
I love this book for so many reasons and it was a wonderful resource for my school age child. To start, there are 13 different themes that you will study throughout the book. Each theme has a bible memory verse for the week and by the end of the week your child should have memorized the verse, which is easy because the verse is reinforce throughout the week.
Each theme is broken into 7 days, one for each day of the week. You don’t have to do one everyday and can plan your child study however you want but, it’s so easy to do one each day and have one theme per week. At the end of each theme there are puzzles that your child does to review all concepts from the week/theme. They are an invaluable resources in themselves since your child gets a review and has fun while doing so.
The daily devotions are wonderful because they have different parts to each one. Each day has a daily verse, reading, and challenge. All of which reinforce the bible memory verse and theme for the week. The give your child a new way to look at the themes each day in a way that your child can understand. The devotions are modern day, true to life, ways for children to think about biblical principles but, easily understand them.
As you take this journey you have 3 travelers that go with you. If you know about Adventures in Odyssey then you have already been introduced to these friends but, if you are like me, they will be new to you. Their names are Connie, Eugene, and Wooton. The each play a part in your child’s learning and I think they are wonderful mates on this journey. Connie will talk to your child about spiritual concepts,
is your go-to fact guy and Wooton is the comedian of the group. They make learning the bible fun and
entertaining. We couldn't have made the
journey without them.
If you are like me and your children’s spiritual and moral growth is important to you then this book is an invaluable resource. I think that ever family should have this wonderful book in their library. I will say that it works best with school age children and preferable with 8 and up.
Now, I am on the lookout for a preschool devotion and hopefully I can find one and I will let you all know when I do.
