Old and New Testament stories such as Adam and Eve, Abraham, Joseph, the Baptism of Jesus, and Pentecost come alive with dramatic illustrations by Fernando Juarez and moving text by Doris Rikkers. With a cover that sparkles and shines with foil, this is a special storybook Bible that will appeal to both children and parents alike.

Review

I know that many parents are looking for books that really catch their children’s eye and are appealing.  From the moment we opened the box we were intrigued. The beautiful cover had a sparkle and shine that would be very appealing to children.  Each story showing a swirl of light where the Holy Spirit of God had come to those in the story, this let the children know that God was with those who lived during this time.  ( I explained that to the kids before reading to them, as seen above. )  As a Christian parent, I want my children to know when God was present with those we are reading about in the Bible. Sometimes it is not so apparent when just reading to small children from a regular bible and they may miss and not understand that God is ever with us and his Spirit is there to help, guide, comfort and praise those living according to the Word.

My Review

I really enjoyed this devotional !  It is just the right size and time needed to give you a fast read and a really indepth look at life in story form.  I am very fond of many of the authors and have enjoyed their stories in the past.  I think this made it more enjoyable for me.

Each Story made things so real to me and hit home in a real sense.  This is a sweet book and would make a wonderful gift for a book lover, new mom or a friend !  Even for a young lady who is in need of learning some of life’s lessons.

Depending on your reading speed each story might take you 5 to 10 mins and I think that is great for a homeschooling mom like myself or a new wife or mothers who is busy.

I know that you would just love this Devotional !

Guest Post from Kathy Ide

I’ve always loved Christian fiction, and I’ve seen the power of fiction to touch hearts and change lives, both firsthand and hearing about the experiences of others. But you know, in my quiet times with the Lord, reading a chapter from a novel just doesn’t seem quite appropriate. So a devotional with short fiction stories seemed like a great solution. And you can take these purse-sized devotionals wherever you go, to read when you have a few minutes of down time. It’s a great way to get “inspiration on the go.” And they make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones.

Wake Up Smiling 40 Devotions for a Hope-Filled Life by Audrey Meisner

cover105768-medium

Before you open your eyes or say a word each morning, a few precious moments have the potential to place you on the pathway of peace and hope. Make these seconds count. They are more important than you can even imagine!

In Wake Up Smiling, Audrey shares her very personal journey of taking three simple Bible verses and believing them in a way that some may say is outrageous. Living heaven on earth has become very real for her, and every morning she wakes up with hope. If you’re ready to live, dream, and experience freedom from worry and fear, Jesus really is as close as the mention of His name. He’s waiting to share His secrets with those who will abandon all and say, “I am ready.”

God has a recipe for hope for you. It is practical, it will turn your life around, and it starts as you wake up.

My Review

This book is filled with 40 relatively short devotional readings to give you a smile as you start your day ! I would say that each may take 5 to 15 minutes to read and give insight into how to apply the lesson learned to your life.  It is a very good way to get to know the Lord better and what he wants for our lives.  It is an enjoyable thing to do each day and a great way to start your day with the Lord.     I really am enjoying this devotional  and It would make a nice gift for giving to a friend or a friend shut in !

Minute 1: scripture to meditate on; Minute 2: a short devotional reading; Minute 3: a prayer to jump-start a conversation with God. This portable package makes a fabulous any-occasion gift for every woman.

My Review

I really like this Devotional ! It is short and just the right thing to start the day with if your a busy mom. It could also be read to daughters by the mom as a short devotion of God’s Love to share with them as they move into womanhood.  Being  a homeschool mom it is important to me to spend a few minutes with the Lord and this gave me a few minutes if I get up and children are already up. It brings peace and joy to my heart in a few short moments and that is what I needed lately to inspire me.
