Book Review - God's Calling for Kids

God’s Calling for Kids by Phil A. Smouse is just right to begin or end the day with your child. This is a year long children’s devotional. This book is perfect for my five year old daughter and me to focus on God.  The devotions are short and written in a very personal way.  A scripture is included with each day’s devotional.  

Some of the devotionals are relevant to the season because it does follow the calendar. The illustrations are cute, but are not included for each day.  There are at least two illustrations for each month.   

I would recommend this book to parents with young children 3 to 7 years old. Wake up or wind down with your little one while reading God’s Calling for Kids.

This ebook was provided to me by NetGalley.

Book Review - The Bible Promise Book (KJV)

The Bible Promise Book (KJV) published by Barbour Publishing is a powerful little book.  What is in it?  It is simply just the Word of God arranged by subjects such as anger, contentment, God's faithfulness and wisdom to name a few.   There are no extra comments except from God Himself.  It is small enough to be carried almost anywhere.

How do I use it?   If I feel some anger, I turn to the section on anger and read the related scriptures to get God's perspective on the situation.  It helps me not to make a situation worse..

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.  (Proverbs 15:1)

If my situation seems to be too much that worry has taken over then I read:

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  (Phillipians 4:6-7)

If I want to share God's Word with someone and not overwhelm him with the whole Bible then I give The Bible Promise Book.   You will want to have extra on hand to have in several places like in your home and your car.  You might be led to bless someone else with God's promises.  

You can buy this book from Christianbook.com.  I am not associated with Christianbook...just a fan. This book happens to be a frequent purchase of mine from them because I like to hand them out.
