I received an email the other day requesting ideas for devotionals to use with children. Currently our children’s church program has a feature called “get into the story” where we use a guide based on what the kids did in Sunday school. It has a daily devotional we read each day with the kids. The curriculum is called God’s Story and we are so grateful to God for this God-centered, gospel centered curriculum. A huge thanks to Marty Machowski for writing it. It has been a wonderful means of grace to our family.
We have enjoyed a variety of resources for our children’s spiritual growth and development over the years. Some of our all time favorites are:
The Big Picture Story Bible by David Helm
The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd Jones
The Gospel for Children by John B. Leuzarder
All of the Seeds Scripture Memory music
As the boys have grown older, we have them read their Bibles and periodically they use a journal and write one sentence about what they learned about man and one sentence about what they learned about God. It was a suggestion we originally read about here.
What about you ladies? What are some of your favorite resources for devotions with the children? Please leave comments or write about it on your blog and let us know when you do!
