Book Review - Whit's End Mealtime Devotions

 
I am a big fan of Adventures of Odyssey so I was pleased to read Whit’s End Mealtime Devotions. I kept this book in the kitchen so it was available quickly at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Each devotion is one page. It has five sections - Mealtime Prayer, Appetizer, Main Course, Table Talk and Vitamins and Minerals.

The Mealtime Prayer section starts you off with a prayer related to the topic. In the Appetizer you will be asked a question to get a taste of what is to come. Then the Main Course gives you God through scripture references and more questions. After you have “eaten” your Main Course then you will review with questions in Table Talk so all that good stuff can digest and work its way into your system. Of course, you need Vitamins and Minerals which is a scripture that will nourish you long after the “meal” is done.

The devotions worked great for us. Did we go through all the sections every time? No. Sometimes we got stopped at the Main Course because the discussion was longer than expected. Other times we read and talk about all the sections in the devotions. 
 
One of my favorite devotions in this book is the one titled “Got Milk?”.

Appetizer

Did you know that cows are good for more than milk and steaks? What else comes from cows?


Main Course

Follow the milk on your table backward to see where it comes from....God is responsible for the milk in your glass...He is the ultimate Provider!


Table Talk

What else ultimately comes from God?

You should get the book to enjoy the rest of Got Milk? and other devotions. The devotions are divided into Any Day Mealtime Devotions, Holiday Devotions and Theme Devotions.

If you want an additional way to make sure God is a regular part of your family discussions then I would suggest this book. And do not forget to take your family directly to the Bible itself so they can see the source of Whit’s End Mealtime Devotions.
