Case for Christ for Kids- Book Review

Bestselling Author Lee Strobel Helps Children Learn More about Their Faith and Understand the Bible in a New Devotional Book

New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel reveals he knows through experience that children are wrestling with questions about Jesus and the Christian faith at younger and younger ages.  Further, misinformation and not being exposed to the Bible at an early age can often lead to a superficial faith that may crumble later in life. 

That’s why Strobel penned CASE FOR CHRIST FOR KIDS: 90-DAY DEVOTIONAL (Zonderkidz; $9.99; October 2013). Inspired by the success of The Case for Christ: A Journalist’s Personal Investigation on the Evidence of Christ, the new book teaches kids aged 9-12 how to build a case for Christ in their lives that can stand up to challenges and help squelch doubt.
Strobel writes that Christianity isn’t just a list of religious rules, but a way for children to gain a deeper relationship with Jesus by following truths outlined in the Bible. CASE FOR CHRIST FOR KIDS contains 90 devotions derived from the Gospels, and encourages children to read one each day so they can apply it to their daily lives. It helps readers dig deeper into their faith with the “Examine the Case” section, which explains the importance of each devotion. “Final Word” contains an excerpt from an appropriate Scripture passage.
What’s most noteworthy about the book is how Strobel effortlessly caters each devotion to a relatable aspect of a child’s life—their love of hot dogs, cleaning their rooms, and even the Easter Bunny. This helps them learn how their faith impacts everything they do in every area of their lives.

Written in a friendly, conversational tone, CASE FOR CHRIST FOR KIDS includes historical facts, true stories, and biblical research that will captivate children. It is an essential book that strengthens their faith while it also provides answers to their toughest questions about God.

My Review:
My children are not quite at the age that this book is geared for but since I do have my church kids this is perfect for a few of them.  I believe it is the church's and parents job to help build a solid foundation for our children so they can have the confidence to stand up for CHRIST.  When they take ownership and identify who they are in Christ there will be victory!  I firmly believe that this nice devo is going to help kids go  a step further in their thinking and help make Christianity not just talked about or done on Sundays at church but a true way to live all the time.  

I am excited to offer this book to my kids in a few more years when they are facing more challenges of the worlds pressures.  I know we are currently developing great habits and a love for being in God's word and in general of spending time with HIM and soaking in His love!  

This book will also be a great tool to many Sunday school classrooms who might have "newer" believers helping out who might not know how to answer some of the harder questions.  WHAT AN AWESOME TOOL TO HAVE!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
