Deuteronomy 6:6-9 shares God's desire for us to have his commandments on our hearts and for us to impress them on our children. He tells us to talk about his word at home, when we are travelling and when we lie down. More and more devotional books are being published for children making it easier and easier for us to do this.
They are such a great tool to help kids spend time in Gods word each day. Some of our favorite devotional books share a few scriptures and short story which includes a life application. Just enough to walk away learning something about God that can be applied into our life. We would love to hear from you which books you like and why.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9: These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Yesenia Hernandez-Mackie from Bakersfield, California likes Jesus Calling Devotional.
Jesus Calling is written form children ages 8 - 10 years old. The devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child's heart.
Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives.
Jill Perez from Dekalb, Illinois likes Sticky Situations Devtional. These devotionals are short and to they point and really help you think through situations,they have questions so you know what to do and you can learn more about God.
Sticky Situations is a devotional book for families with children ages 8 to 12 that offers short readings for each day of the year. Each reading begins with a kid who is facing a moral dilemma and ends with multiple-choice solutions for the family to discuss. Often there is more than one acceptable course of action to take. Parents will find tips in the back of the book that interpret the various choices made by the children and offer follow-up questions for further discussion on each topic. Scripture references are provided to give biblical insight into each situation. Sticky Situations is a great discussion starter that will give parents the chance to share their own values with their children.
