We have been LOVING this book in our morning devotions. I usually pull out a handwriting sheet for each of the kids and they practice their letters while I read. This book is easy to understand, yet not watered down. I ask the kids to tell me about the chapter they just heard (“telling back” a story or what they remember is a huge part of our schooling and trying to instill an attentive ear!) and then we talk through some of the questions at the end. There are scripture memory verses for each chapter (which we need to be more intentional about learning), hymns (most of which, sadly, I do not know *cringe*), and a prayer prompt. This is such a huge anchor in our day and it has generated a lot of questions.
I try to be very careful not to “force” my timeline on the transformation of my children’s hearts.
I have a child who desperately wants to do what is right, a child who admittedly doesn’t know if they believe in the work of Jesus (and one who only wants me to draw pink elephants with crowns during devotion time). I try to put truth out there communicate that this is one area that is their responsibility and their choice to think about.
