"I am in control and I am Good. These two wonderful truths tell you who I AM. When you look at the world and all its troubles, it is sometimes hard to believe that both of these things can be true at the same time."
Goodness, hard times, cultivating a life of prayer and keeping hope in God - just a few of the real-life issues tackled by Sarah Young in Jesus Today. It's a daily Bible study for children with numbered entries, so kids can start any day of the year, or miss a day and not feel "behind." Each devotion gives a small blurb about God's character and often several corresponding Bible verses.
It's a solid introduction to God's character that would go well with regular and more systematic Bible-reading. It's a mini-book sized hardcover with glossy pages and nice type. I'd recommend it for children ages 7- 10.
I've read through the whole book on my own and now Woodjie, Rose and I are starting to read an entry before schoolwork each weekday. It would make a cute gift for birthdays or a baptism present for a smaller child.
