100 Devotions, 100 Bible Songs {GIVEAWAY} (Winner Announced)

Start children off on the way they should go,and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

They straggle down to the breakfast table, one at a time, most mornings, rarely do they all come in at once. Our table seats just four, and four years ago, that was big enough, but we’ve long since added the two girls to the family and now at breakfast there’s just room for the four of them to sit. This one wants waffles with syrup, this one waffles but with powdered sugar.

That one wants cereal and the baby wants applesauce. I feel like a short order cook, but I give them these things to fill their bellies and bring smiles, and I pray that God fills their hearts in a few minutes when I start devotions with them.  I reach for the book and they groan sometimes, and one of them rolls his eyes and I sigh heavy trying to keep my fist from thumping the bible. I’m saving up my long-winded speach about how without God’s word, without God, we’d all be lost, and wishing this one child just decist and listen to what I have to say, what God has to say- through his own breath and words. Praying in that moment that God speaks, his words are worth the breath, whereas mine, mine are pure foolishness.

I have tried many different devotions, some have been too long, or too deep for the littlest ones to hang on to.  My three year old doesn’t listen when we start reading about who begat whom, and I flush pink when we get to the parts about men and their wives {ahem} because, you know, we haven’t had that discussion yet here, so finding a proper devotion for this bunch has been a series of trial and error.

Thankfully, I recieved this one in the mail a couple of weeks ago and it has saved devotion time around here. The devotionals are brief but solid. Scripture and a little one line prayer is included in the reading, but the devotionals themselves are brief and I can just squeek one out before the two year old tosses her sippy cup and fingerpaints the small table with her applesauce hands. To add more fun to the usually difficult moments surrounding devotion, there is music. We love music here, and this is a fun way to close it out after we have read the word.

Praise Jesus, we can now get into the word on a level that they can all enjoy. The littlest one enjoys the songs, the older boys asks me questions that show me he’s getting it.

  3. Very cool devotional book, Krissie. Since my toddler is still young, we read many bible stories to him and pray with him. Our devotional time as a family is typically more what my husband and I are reading/studying, but our son is involved too. He’s getting to the age where we can really begin discussing His Word though! And we LOVE music around here, too. My toddler man loves to dance!

    Thanks for a relatable review and this kind opportunity!
