Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child's heart. Based on her original JesusCalling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kidsand tweens can relate to their everyday lives. After many years ofwriting in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to Godwith pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying toher through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all overthe world were using her devotionals. They are written from Jesus' point ofview, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah's fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now youngreaders, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.
This book was requested by our friend's granddaughter who was making her First Communion. It's a delightful book of daily readings that are youth-friendly, spiritually uplifting and thought-provoking. Could be a great tool for parent-youth conversation revolving around the words of Jesus and His message if goodness. Enjoy!
We had this book for my 4 children it was so worn out I'm buying another one. The older kids read it and look up the passages but the younger ones still get a lot out of it. Short but packed full of good info!
Love this devotional. I bought it as a birthday gift for my 9yr old son. I was impressed with the phrasing and how it deeply moved me, as well as my son. It is well written: simple, honest, straight-forward. We read a passage my our grandparents, and now they want one too. Sometimes, books written for children are just a bit more simplified (in the best way) and have an excellent way of getting to your heart.
