The One Year Choose Your Own Ending Devotions REVIEW

Pin It Now!
  We are a family that is big on daily devotionals, we use them as part of our homeschool bible time, the kids each have their own devotionals book they follow for their personal time with God and we like to use different devotionals as part of family time either at the table for dinner or in our living room before bedtime.  They are a great way for kids and families to stay in touch with God along with Bible time.  I am always on the lookout for new ones to add to our family and homeschool library. This latest one was "The One Year Choose Your Own Ending Devotions."

Here is the publishers notes about the book:

The One Year Choose Your Own Ending Devotions is an interactive and engaging devotional for elementary-age kids and their families. It’s the perfect devotion for dinner time or family time discussions. A short fictional story is given without a complete ending; after reading the scripture passage, readers are encouraged to make up an ending to the story that would follow the Biblical message/theme/lesson. A summarizing point ends the devotion. (Suggested endings are posted in the back of the book for kids and families to compare their endings).

This book also follows the monthly themes of the Pioneer Clubs, a church-sponsored midweek program for kids across North America. Writers of Pioneer Clubs curriculum wrote the devotions to coincide with their calendar, and the group will market devotions as a family companion to their curriculum.
  We have several ONE YEAR devotional books and we love them and this was no exception, what I liked about this one in particular was the ability for the kids to think up the ending and use their imagination and really think about what we were reading. My boys are junior high and high school and although those is targeted to Elementary we all enjoyed this as a family. Great for families and kids to really dive deep into thought of God's Word and choose how the story ends.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or ARC. I was not compensated in any way and the free copy in exchange for my review in no way influenced the outcome of my review.
