The One Year Devotions for Active Boys

Active boys are something I am quite familiar with.  At ages 7, 9, & 11, mine keep me on-the-go!  I think this is a good devotional for their age group.  (pre-junior high) Each devotion is one-page long and numbered with a specific day of the year. 

The components of each devotion are:

*A few paragraphs containing a story/lesson.

*Some type of activity: a craft, puzzle, weird facts, experiment, quiz, or jokes related to the topic.

*A prayer prompt.

*A scripture

The activity section is what makes this devotional different than others I've seen.  My younger boys enjoy the weird facts and jokes.  My oldest likes the puzzles.  None of them are too fond of the crafts.  So while each activity might not appeal to each child, there is enough variety to appeal to different personalities.

Having a devotional geared toward boys and their need to "do" something is a great idea.  It's an extra incentive to open the book each day and set their mind on God's truth!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
