Oftentimes we get so overwhelmed with finding the right devotional or even scripture writing plan. I know I wondered how to even start. I had to learn quickly not to overcomplicate getting in the Word.
Insert one of my kids devotion books. As I read this with my son the other day, turns out I was actually reading it for myself. I needed simple that day and it was exactly what I needed that moment. “Pray at all times, especially when you are struggling. … Ask the Holy Spirit to control your thinking and help you pray. Your prayers don’t have to be pretty or perfect; just pour your heart out to Me.” See? Words written so simply for a child to understand, yet it spoke to me.
I love these books by Sarah Young. We have two, plus the Jesus Storytime Bible. I highly recommend them. They are quick, easy reads and gets both you and your child(ren) in the Word. Here are the two we use and links to purchase below.
