Great Devotionals for Families With Young Kids

Here's something that's working for me lately:

It's a super little book called My ABC Bible Verses: Hiding God's Word in Little Hearts. It has a Bible verse for each letter of the alphabet and after the verse there is a little story about 2 kids and a scenario of how they apply the verse to their lives.

We've been reading one verse and short story each morning at breakfast as a family and I've really been amazed at how much my kids like it, they even remind me to read it if I forget! The letter per day is great for my 4 year old who is learning letter sounds in preparation for reading, and having the first letter clue is helping my older kids remember the Bible verse even later in the day when I ask if they remember what it was.

My plan is actually to start back over with the letter "A" after we get through all the letters and keep cycling through until I get really sick of it or my kids memorize all 26 verses or they all move away to college (we'll see which happens first)!

It's a really easy way to do family devotions with young kids and I love that my kids are starting their day with God's word!

  1. This does look like a great book. I have it on my wishlist for my 3 year old at Amazon already :)

    Thanks for sharing it with everyone at WFMW.


  2. Thanks for sharing this really great resource!!! I just saw another mom post a similar idea in which she was making up songs to each verse for the letters of the alphabet...maybe if you get sick of repeating them you could start singing them!!!


I'd love to hear what you think!
