The Bible is my Best Friend Family Devotional by Shelia Walsh

Are you looking for a new family devotional to use with your family this year? B&H Kids has a new devotional out by Shelia Walsh called, The Bible is my Best Friend Family Devotional.  It is a collection of 52 Devotions and intended to be done once a week.  Each week your family will have a Bible verse to memorize, a devotional story that ties in Scripture, 2 questions: one for kids and one for parents, a fun activity, and a weekly challenge to complete.

My Thoughts:
I thought the devotional was fun.  It takes a truth from Scripture and usually adds a story to help a child understand how that Scripture applies to their life.  I liked that it takes other approaches to help cement the idea that has been talked about with games, questions, crafts, and a challenge to get everyone thinking. While the material isn't all that deep theologically, I think that it presents simple concepts of truth that would work well for families that have kids ages preschool up to later elementary.  If you have been wanting to begin having devotions with your family, but are having a hard time getting started or making the time, try this devotional.  It's a great way to start a new habit.  It's once a week and then focuses on that truth all week long.  What a great way to start a new habit in your family that will draw you closer together and to the Lord.

***I received this devotional free from B&H Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
