This month I was given the opportunity to check out what a monthly subscription Purpose Driven Essentials Mini Bag looks like. The PDE includes a book, CD, journaling supplies, a treat, and a few other items. I feel it’s a great value at just $32.99. The main purpose is to give one the opportunity to be inspired by scripture, devotional thoughts, the music of praise via the album included, and through art during their journaling and Bible study times.

Every Day with Jesus: 365 Devotions for Kids by Pastor Dr. Charles Stanley is his first ever devotional for children. It is adapted from his book Every Day in His Presence, Every Day with Jesus and is coordinated with his devotional for adults. The coordination makes it so children and adults in the same family can discover the same theme and scripture on the same exact day. This coordination beautifully opens the door for conversation within the family unit. However, this book stands well on its own if you don’t have the one for adults.
100 Favorite Bible Verses for Children is a devotional book with the main goal of recognizing key scripture verses and how it can be applied to our lives. Parents and caregivers are given an excellent resource in this title as it perfectly simplifies verses through a not overly wordy explanation that young children can comprehend. Questions pondered and asked about each verse are likely to already be answered in each day’s applicable reading.
365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids is a “If I Could Ask God Anything” devotional by Kathryn Slattery. The main purpose is to answer questions pertaining to God and the Bible. The devotionals within aid in answering a child’s current question and even those they haven’t even thought to ask about yet in an easy to understand way.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. —Psalm 121:1–2
Devotions from the Mountains is an uplifting offering that will help one draw nearer to God on a daily basis. Anyone that finds great peace in nature will be refreshed and rejuvenated from the truths taken from the word of God and reflected back in each of the themed daily devotions shared.
If you asked my older children their favorite subject school I am more than certain they’d chime back with a reply that it is Science. I’m not surprised by this because I know children (and adults! ) are all about discovering new things, learning how things work, and determining how that information could be applied where applicable. This type of discovering is much like learning to be a Christian and growing to be more like Jesus! So when I heard about Louie Giglio’s latest book ” Indescribable 100 Devotions for Kids About God and Science”, that pair these two very impact subjects together, I knew it would be the perfect book for my family.
