Wee Read Wednesday: Grace for the Moment Devotions

Today for Wee Read Tuesday I'm bringing you a kids' devotional that also has an adult version! 

Grace is: God’s best idea . . . More than we deserve … And greater than we imagine.  But how can you plant this important message of grace into the heart of your child? 
Adapted from the bestselling devotional for adults (with more than 3 million copies sold), Grace for the Moment: 365 Devotions for Kids presents the message of God’s grace in a way that children can understand. It’s perfect for families to read together or for older readers to enjoy alone. Each day offers a devotion and scripture to encourage regular time with God. And because giving grace is just as important as receiving it, a “Growing in Grace” opportunity accompanies each devotion, offering practical and easy-to-do activities to help kids apply God’s grace—every day and every moment.

For such a small book, Grace for the Moment© has had a major impact on countless lives. With more than 2,500,000 copies sold, this devotional continues to touch lives as it emphasizes the help and hope of God in everyday moments. Each daily reading features devotional writings from Max Lucado's numerous bestsellers as well as a Scripture verse selected especially for that day's reading. This new classic is available in hardcover as well as in both green and burgundy eurobond leather.

My Thoughts:
Daily devotions are one of those things that I always want to implement, but always fall short. I think one of the reasons I never follow through is I want to include my kids but it’s hard to find something I can do with my kids that is meaningful for all of us. This devotion set is the answer!

Devotions do not have to be long to be meaningful, and the adult version of this set is proof of that. A small book that can fit into your purse features a new devotion on each page. A verse and two or three short paragraphs is all it takes. The devotions are meaningful and powerful, and just right to get your day started.

And I love, love, love the kids version of this book. The verse that is featured in the adult devotion is the same verse that is featured for that day in the kid version. The devotions are written specific to kids and the trials they face each day. Again, there is one devotion per page with only a few paragraphs.

At the end of each page, the kid version features a ‘Growing for Grace’ illustration that helps kids use every day events to imagine the story being told. For example: next time you are at the lake, picture Peter in the boat.

I am very excited to implement these new devotions into our family routine beginning January 1. They are going to be the perfect addition to our day.
