- Great tool For Homeschool by Heather on 12/1/2015
I was so excited when "The Bible is my Best Friend: Family Devotional" arrived in the mail that I ripped open the package and began to flip through the pages. I have been wanting to do a family devotional for a long time and we would on occasion read a Psalm with the kids but I wanted something a little more structured.
Since my oldest is only 4 I needed some guidance on how to make the Bible fun for her without losing any of it's truths. I didn't want to sugar coat Bible stories much like what I was taught in Sunday School but to give her a longing to learn more the Bible teaches us.
Sheila Walsh did a brilliant job of solving all my problems with her book "The Bible is my Best Friend: Family Devotional". This isn't like your daily devotions but instead 52 weekly devotions which I love!
Each week includes a Memory Verse, Let's Talk, Family Fun, Weekly Challenge, Back to The Bible, and a Checkpoint.
As someone who struggles with remembering what she reads I love the weekly memory verses, the repetition is also helpful to really get the message across to my daughter.
Let's Talk section asks some thought provoking questions and you just might be surprised how your little ones respond.
Family Fun is a great way to get interactive with the Bible lesson with games, crafts, and other fun activities.
Each weekly devotion includes a challenge and to my surprise I find these to be most helpful to myself I think more than anyone.
One of my favorite parts of the week is the Back to Bible section which my hubby reads out loud and then we try to discuss it with my 4 year old to see what she took from it.
Lastly, each week includes a checkpoint which is for when you have completed that weeks challenge you get to cross it off. At times it may take you longer than a week to complete but that's okay.
I must say I truly love this family devotional and I even see myself referring to it in during home school Bible lessons. I think this would be a great tool for any family who wants to teach their children the Bible and not lose any of it's integrity while bringing it to their level.
- Terrific Family Devotional by Heidi Bee on 11/24/2015
I have been looking for a family devotional that fits just right. The Bible is My Best Friend FamilyDevotional has been such a blessing to our family. We have been enjoying our time in the Word and fellowship together. This devotional is divided by weeks and that is so handy. The chapter starts with a memory verse that we can work on all week together. It makes us all accountable.
There are really great diuscussion starters after the lesson and a weekly challenge for the whole family. I really love too how it refers you to verses and Bible sections to back up the lessons for the week. The lessons it teaches are very practicle like Obeying,Answers and unanswered prayers, and Great is our God. We are really learning God' word together with this devotional and learning more about each other too.
The illustrations are fun and the language isn't too difficult yet doesn't talk down to you. Perfect for families with kids ages 4-10. This would make a wonderful gift!
I recieved this book free in exchange for my honest opinion.
