Bilbo and I are much alike. We both found a ring…I mean, we both have a soft spot for adventure. And who wouldn’t? How much fun is it to drop everything, run down the path yelling “I’m going on an adventure!”
Enter in this awesome gem for kids! If you’re looking for a children’s devotional, good news. I found two more options. The first? The Adventure Bible of Devotions by Robin Schmitt.
The Adventure Bible of Devotions | Robin Schmitt
Grab your spyglass and compass and set sail for adventure! Like a map that leads to great treasure, this revised edition of the NIV Adventure Bible Book of Devotions takes kids on a thrilling, enriching quest. This year long devotional is filled with exciting fictional stories about kids finding adventure in the real world. Boys and girls will learn more about God and the Bible, and be inspired to live a life of faith—the greatest adventure of all. Companion to the Adventure Bible, the #1 best selling Bible for kids.
Much like the best-selling Adventure Bible, this 365 Day Devotional is the perfect addition to help your young one grow in faith and in the Lord.
Besides the daily story, each page has a short extra at the bottom of each page. I think they are fantastic additions!
Words to Treasure – Short verses for them to remember.
Did You Know? – Facts about things God did, faith and interesting history facts.
People in the Bible Times – Short tidbits about bible characters, like Joseph, the Levites, Thomas and Pharaoh
Life in Bible Times – Mini lessons of history and culture to help kids understand what life was like back then.
Live it! – Activities to learn more (i.e. Ten Commandments leap frog, ideas to raise money for the poor, creative ways to worship God, like writing your own song, art and crafts)
It also includes topic index and scripture index to help them look for certain topics on their heart. This is the type of devotional I look forward to reading with my little nieces (as we plan our next adventure of course)!
