You Can Count on God: 100 Devotions for Kids by Max Lucado


From New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado, these 100 devotions will help kids worry less, bravely try new things, and draw closer to God as they learn to trust His faithfulness.

Adapted from the encouraging devotional for adults, You Can Count on God teaches children that they can count on God because He will never leave them, and will love them unconditionally. Each of the 100 entries

  • includes a comforting Bible verse and a short devotion that show an example of God's faithfulness
  • presents the message that God is trustworthy in a way that children, ages 6 to 10, can understand
  • reassures kids that God can help them with their challenges, sorrows, and questions
  • offers a takeaway section with a key point, reflection question, or prayer to guide kids in understanding and applying the biblical truth
  • is perfect for families to read together or for older readers to enjoy alone

Give your child the gift of knowing that they can count on God, no matter what. This kids devotional is perfect for

  • families who want their children to feel secure in their faith
  • a present to commemorate a decision of faith, baptism, or confirmation
  • an Easter basket gift

With a ribbon bookmark, presentation page, attractive textured hardcover, and bold color interiors, this hope-giving devotional for kids is the perfect gift for any child needing courage for a new challenge, peace from anxieties about the future, or relief from disappointment, insecurity, and overwhelm. You Can Count on God will guide children into a deeper relationship with God as they learn about His faithfulness in the past and build confidence that they can always trust Him to help them.

I'm always on the lookout for books that I can share with my eight-year-old granddaughter, and this is now at the top of my list! Author Max Lucado has adapted his best-selling book, You Can Count on God, into this version that has 100 devotions just for kids. Each two-page entry begins with Bible scripture, and it's followed by a short devotion with even more scripture. The second page has an appropriate closing, and this may be a question, a prayer, or something for them to remember. As I thumbed through the pages, I noticed the catchy titles, the easy-to-understand text, and the different topics that are especially appropriate for young readers, with a variety of Bible stories and life lessons that will keep them from being bored. Titles such as 'Tucked Under God's Wings', 'More than a Little Lunch', and 'Best Brother Ever', along with reminders that 'God Cares for You', 'Jesus Prays for You', and 'God Can Use You'.

This book is a wonderful way for parents or grandparents to share their faith with their children and grandchildren, but I can see it being a wonderful resource for Sunday school teachers and Youth Group leaders. This hardback copy with its navy-blue ribbon bookmark is perfect for gift-giving but do plan to keep a copy for your special young person. Help them to better understand God's Word, and to grow in their Christian faith.

I received a copy of this book from FrontGate Media. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.
