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!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
