Step Into the Bible: 100 Family devotions to help Grow your Childs Faith


Does your family do daily Devotionals?  Step Into the Bible: 100 Family Devotions to Help Grow Your Child’s Faith (Zonderkidz; $14.99). is an awesome devotional book which brings your children and yourselves through the bible and asks great questions to help stir the thoughts of yours and your childrens’ faith.


Based on a collection of biblical stories used by four generations of the Graham family, every flip of the page encourages children and their parents to journey through one enriching Bible story after another. From “Jesus’s First Miracle” to “Jonah Runs Away,” Graham offers faith-filled teachings from each passage, a take-away memory verse, parent notes, and questions for families to ponder and complete. Step Into the Bible is perfect for parents who want to grow together spiritually with their children, as they immerse themselves in the Bible.

Don’t these books sound Great??

These books have been in a box in our room so far – because the majority of them are going to be Christmas Presents for the boys.  But after going through the titles again I’m realizing that I’ll be taking out the two ‘Christmas’ books so we can get ourselves prepared mentally for Christmas!

I’m also really looking forward to adding the family devotionals into our routine – which at this point is starving for some more attention.  I’m not sure they’re all appropriate for a 1 and 3 year old – but at least the basics of them can be read through!  It’s a good habit to get into!


All 10 of these books will go to One Lucky Reader!  Valued at apx $100 these books will put a nice dent into your Christmas Gift List!!
