Format: Hardcover
These devotionals make sense to kids, without talking down to them. They include a bible verse, a devotional message for the day, an affirmation/exercise, and a neat trivia fact. The topics are religious in nature, but very real world, day-to-day stuff... like being a good friend, taking care of yourself, being aware of your thoughts, managing your emotions, respecting other people... stuff even us adults could benefit from reading on a daily basis!

I have been reading this devotional with my 5 year old daughter every morning. It is wonderful for her. She understands it and it's not a lot for her to take in. Highly recommend this book. When we are done I will probably start over at the beginning again.

Best Devotional Book May 11 2007
By TLCCJO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Andy Holmes' devotional book, "Growing with Jesus" has been such a blessing to our family! My 4 year old daughter runs down the hall each night and yells, "Devotion Time." My husband, 8 yr. old son, daughter, and I all pile on the bed and read a devotion together. The Bible Verse, Thoughts to Grow On, Daily Action, and Amazing Facts are interesting, helpful, and fun to read.

The book has helped us grow closer as a family and to Christ. We love our nightly devotion and prayer time. Thanks Andy for such a wonderful book! We are going to start this one all over again until you write another one! :)

Enjoyable devotional for the young May 30 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've only gotten through the first 30 days of this book with my 4 year old and based on that, would recommend this book.
Each day starts with a bible verse and then goes on with a simple, short section about what the verse is about and what it is trying to teach you. Often times, the author does this by giving an example that a young child could understand. Example: "How do you feel when you see someone getting something you'd like to have? Does it bother you inside, or are you truly happy for them?" The author then continues about how jealousy hurts you (the jealous one) and suggest the child imagine what it would feel like if it were he/she receiving the present and then to switch that excitement over to them. It then directs the child on what to do today to apply the lesson just learned. Each day ends with a section called "My Amazing World" which gives interesting facts or piece of history but it doesn't always relate to the lesson of the day.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that there are some things that my 4 year old has not experienced and therefore cannot relate to. The days that discussed peer preasure and dirty words are two examples. I still find it a valuable tool in teaching my child god's lessons and use each day's devotional as a spring board to discuss how god wants us to live our lives.

Wonderful devotional book for children! We LOVE this book! Oct. 29 2009
By L. Edwards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Growing With Jesus - Devotional" is a wonderful devotional book for children!
I have purchased several devotionals for my now 5 (almost 6) year old daughter and
must say this one is a gem. Even Mom and Dad love this book, and we never fail to
ALL get something out of the devotional and scripture each night. The book has 100 devotionals which consist of a bible verse, thoughts to grow on (where the author expounds on the verse in a wonderful way that children can relate to based on things in their own day to day lives), a thought/challenge for the day, and
my amazing world - an interesting fact about many things from our bodies to the world around us. One of my favorites of the devotionals is when the author, Andy Holmes, elaborates on the bible verse "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6. Holmes talks about hearing your tummy growl and how that was your body's way of saying it needed food, and also being very thirsty. He relates that to God wanting you to be hungry for him and thirsty for him, and how God is food for your spirit and living water for your soul. He ends with a prayer to say aloud: "Dear God, Teach me to be hungry for you. Teach me to be thirsty for your Word. Thank you, Lord. Amen" Imagine my overflowing heart, when after reading that my daughter prayed that, and continues praying that some 2 months later, and 3 weeks ago asked Jesus into her heart. God works through many ways to speak to us (and our children), through His word and through wonderful Godly teaching of His word. Thank you, Mr. Holmes for writing this book for children, and being usable by the Father to help parents teach children God's word and Godliness in our childrens' lives. I pray that you will write another devotional for older girls! :)

NOTE: Another wonderful devotional is "The Jesus Storybook Bible" - Sally Lloyd Jones. Try them both! - L. Edwards
