Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child’s heart.
Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives.
After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals. They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling. It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.
Makes it easy for families to focus on the Gospel with 10 minute daily devotions
Longtime children’s ministry leader Marty Machowski brings the entire family together to rediscover the excitement of the gospel by taking a deep biblical truth and presenting it in an easy-to-understand weekly devotion in his latest release, Old Story New: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God (New Growth Press).
Machowski gives parents everything they need for five daily devotions per week, focusing on a weekly story and covering the entire New Testament in a year and a half (78 lessons). Old Story New walks children through the great truths of the Christian faith through New Testament stories and offers simple discussion questions (and answers) for each day’s devotion. By focusing the family for only 10 minutes, parents can keep the attention of their young children and reign in their busy teenagers. Machowski even offers parents suggestions of how to make the gospel-centered devotionals relevant for all grade levels, and the lessons are suitable for children from preschool through high school. These kids Bible materials are perfect for morning routines, after dinner discussions, or bedtime rituals.
“Each week starts off with a creative activity, exercise, or bit of trivia to introduce the passage,” explains Machowski. “On days one through four you review a portion of the week’s Scripture passage. Special attention is given on day three to connect the current passage to the gospel. On day four we’ve added a question for your older children to ask you, and on day five you and your family will investigate a Bible passage from the book of Psalms or an excerpt from one of the prophets to discover how the passage points forward to Christ.”
Although Old Story New can be used as a standalone devotional, the stories coordinate with each New Testament story from The Gospel Story Bible (released last December) and the entire line of Gospel Story for Kids Bible curriculum.
