100 Devotions 100 Bible Songs by Stephen Elkins
Do you have a child in your life that you long to share God’s Word with, but need a little guidance as where to start? 100 Read & Sing Devotions is a great book to get you started. Per the title, the book contains 100 devotionals, each one including a song, written devotional, scripture, and a prayer. The book is also arranged in a Biblical order with the devotional material extending from the Old Testament to the New. Also included with the devotional are 2 CD’s that go along with each devotion, the corresponding song number labeled on the page as a guide.
This is a super-cute devotional. I recently had a friend ask me if I could recommend a devotional for her 5 year old son, and I wasn’t very familiar with devotionals, only children’s Bibles. Now I have something to share with her! I believe the content would be appropriate for children ages 3-10.
One example of a devotional you will find is “The Lord Is Good to Me.” The song that goes with it is of the same name as the devotional title. The content is the story of Hannah, and how she was given baby Samuel after she prayed. The scripture is “Wait for the Lord.”-Psalm 27:14. And the prayer is “Lord, You have heard my prayer. Now I will wait on You to answer. Amen.”
As I said in my introduction, I would recommend this book for anyone who would like to teach their child about the Lord and His Word, but doesn’t know where to start. It is a great devotional for anyone with small children. It would also be great for teachers in a church nursery, daycare, or even at school.
Many blessings to you on your journey with the Lord, and the special children in your life!
