My kids are 12 and 9 and growing fast. Somehow my son is almost as tall as me and can fit into my shoes. Kids grow, usually faster than we like. While their bodies grow at rapid rates, we also need to help their spiritual minds grow with Jesus. Rapid rates totally welcome.
I’ve got the perfect anecdote for growing spiritual minds…Growing With Jesus from Tommy Nelson. This sweet and simple devotional book by Andy Holmes is filled with 100 devotions perfect for kids in the 6-10 age range. I love how each devotion is structured…a Bible verse, some thoughts to grow on, and a challenge in the form of a question. What sets this devotional book apart from others? Not only does it have all the awesome stuff above, but it also has a “My Amazing World” section, a short paragraph that tells a fun fact from the amazing, creative world that God has given us to enjoy. I learned that baby scorpions travel by lying on their mommy’s backs until they’re two weeks old!

We have an awesome devotional (out of print, now, I think) called In His Hands – our whole family has learned so much science from that book!! So great this devotional is doing the same sort of thing.
I'm really looking forward to having a son (or daughter) grow taller than me!!! 🙂

Hope I win, looks like a great book! Love that it has nature/science facts incorporated with the devotions. I am going to check out the book that Elisa suggested, too.
