Jesus Calling For Adults & Children

Earlier this year, I asked on Facebook a suggested devotional. I had finished a Beth Moore study at church and wanted something to do until the next one started. Everyone kept recommending Jesus Calling. I had heard about it, but hadn’t looked into it. I kept it in the back of my mind.
P1010854
Not long after that, an acquaintance at church started texting a group of us a devotional every morning. I enjoyed it and thought she was sharing so much insight. At one point someone asked her where she was getting her devotion from and she shared that it was Jesus Calling. It was so cool. She was getting it from someone else as a text and she was in turn sharing it with a bunch of us.
When Family Christian offered to let me review Jesus Calling and my son (and myself) to review Jesus Calling for Kids I was thrilled! I was excited to have a devotion the boys and I could do together and at a level we’d all enjoy. The boys have spent the last couple of months memorizing Matthew 5 with their dad and it’s been a cool thing to watch.
Jesus Calling for Kids and Adults
One of the things I’ve struggled with is finding time to do our devotions together. We all seem to have one thing or another going on. I know that we’re told that we can’t rely on the church and children’s programs to teach our children, it’s supposed to be us, the parents at home teaching our children about deepening their faith.

For both devotions, I love that they’re short and easily digestible. You can read the devotion in a few minutes and spend time in the Word afterwards. This gives the boys and I an opportunity to dig into the Word together. My favorite piece of these books is how positive and uplifting the devotions are. We are reminded to find our joy and strength in God. He is where we should always turn our hearts and minds.

If you are looking for a devotion that will digging deeper into the Word, give you time to study what God has for you, then you will want to add Jesus Calling to your nightstand. Add this also to your child’s reading list and they will be uplifted and encouraged in their walk with the Lord.

What is one of your favorite devotions?
