Gifts to Nourish your Little One's Soul.7:00 AM
My mom always said "Jesus is the reason for the season," and while I might have rolled my eyes in response, once or twice
or lots, I agreed then and agree now. But even though I say that, sometimes my actions don't show it. One small way I want to reiterate that refrain with my girls is to give them at least one gift that nourishes their little souls. Here are my picks for spiritual books--most of which we own and love. It includes a range of ages from little babes to big kids.
Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids- I own the version for grown ups and just love it. Sarah Young just has a way of rephrasing scripture in a way that speaks right to my heart and/or my current circumstance. This book is categorized as appropriate for ages 8-12 which is the only reason it's not on its way to me from Amazon!
The Action Bible. My girlfriend has this one and both her daughter and son love it. I love that it's a great "boy" bible as many devotionals seem more suited toward girls/women.
Precious Moments Favorite Bible Verses or Precious Moments on Amazon. You know how something is so common that you forget it's special? That's how I feel about Precious Moments. We have a few but I like how this one is broken down into categories like "favorite verses for when I'm sad," or "favorite verses for when I'm angry."
LullaBible. This one is a bit more classic. If you're musical, it's great since you can read the music and sing the songs. I, myself, have not a musical bone in my body so that part is sort of lost on me. While the book is good, it's the CD that comes with it that I love. It's so sweet. Genevieve falls asleep to it each night.
Tiny Bear's Bible. (also comes in blue!). This one is perfect for really young children. It tells popular bible stories in a basic, but cute rhyme. I even used some of the quotes/poems in Genevieve's and Nadia's baby books. The cover is just adorable. I love that it's basically a stuffed animal combined with a storybook.
