Spend an entire year of discovering God's blessings, and develop a lifetime of gratitude.
God loves everyone, and one way He shows His love is through showering us with blessings Whether it's with parents who love us, warm sunshine, or the ultimate blessing of His Son, Jesus, God's love is everywhere. When kids see that God is the source of all blessings, it reminds them that all gifts truly do come from God.
Children will learn to not only see God's blessings in happy days, but to see His loving hand in hard days as well. Developing a habit of giving thanks in all circumstances will lead children to a lifelong spirit of gratitude.
Each devotion features Scripture and a bite-sized message that will keep the attention of young minds. Devotions also have a takeaway to help children engage with the message and apply its meaning to their lives.
