Jesus Calling 365 Devotions for Kids by Sarah Young Book Review


ISBN: 1400316340

Retail Price:  $14.99

From the publisher:

Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child's heart.

Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives.

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.

My Review:

When we got this in the mail, my daughter said “Wow, that book looks old!”  I agree! 

Like a lot of “old” stuff – this has tons of good golden nuggets in it!

Each day has a different letter or whispers from Jesus.  Although not scriptures exactly – it is more like an encouragement voice mail from Jesus.

I started using this in our homeschool curricula…they are short devotions but really speak to the heart.  It also lists scriptures at the end of the page that back up the devotion.

I really like this book!  It will never get old and can be used over and over again. 

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
