Last year my two younger boys, ages 7 and 9, attended a Christian day camp at a place called Glorieta in New Mexico. This day camp was a week filled with plenty of fun activities like swimming, zip line, and archery, but it also was a time for the children to learn more about Jesus. My boys had a blast with all the activities and learning. I was thankful for the energetic counselors who helped my boys further develop their relationship with Jesus.This camp helped my boys know more about the love Jesus has for them. It was at this day camp that my 9-year-old gave his life to Christ. I was so happy for my son. I know it won't be long before my other son gives his life to Christ.
I am always looking for books for my son's that help them to learn more about Jesus. I discovered a wonderful devotional and journal set that will help my boys to know more about the love Jesus has for them. The Plans I Have For You Devotional and Journal inspires kids to dream about their future; to focus on faith, love, and joy; and to recognize that God has a plan for each and every one of us. This book set will help my boys learn and discover more about the love and plan God has for them.
The Plans I Have For You Devotional is a 160-page hard-covered book and is geared for kids 8-12 years. I love the brightly colored and easy to read pages. Each daily devotion is only one to two pages long, making them perfect to read just before bed, Each page starts off with a verse from the bible and follows with a short paragraph to help the child understand the verse. I love reading this book with my boys at bedtime and the book has opened up some great discussions about God's plan.
The Plans I Have For You Journal is 208 pages and geared for kids 11-14 years-old. This is a book that helps kids think through bible verses and questions. There is plenty of space for them to write down their thoughts and questions. There are even pictures in the book to help kids think and write down their thoughts. I just love the first page of the journal that tells others to keep out of their book. This journal is perfect for my 9-year-old son who is an advanced reader.
