*Giveaway- "Love Does for Kids" Devotional Book




ABOUT THE BOOK:  Faith in God can be exciting, daring, and fun. Love Does for Kids, the follow up to Bob Goff’s New York Times bestselling Love Does, shares some of the Goff family’s wild adventures--from holding a neighborhood parade to writing presidents from around the world. Children will laugh, dream, and be inspired to make a difference for God as they read these faith adventures from Bob and his daughter, Lindsey.

As a little boy with a big personality and even bigger dreams, Bob Goff had lots of questions, and they didn't go away when he grew up. It wasn’t until he learned just how big and wild and wonderful God is that he began to find answers. Once Bob learned about the deep goodness of God, he began to learn about the great power God gives His kids when they live a life full of love for others.
Kids everywhere will love Bob and Lindsey's stories about how love does. With childlike faith, enthusiasm, and great whimsy, young readers will feel instantly connected to a love that acts as much as it feels. Children will walk away with a sense of wonder at how great God is and will feel empowered to do things that will make a tangible difference in the world.
Bob and Lindsey invite kids to get to know God better and to see the world as a place designed to be changed as we put our faith in action. In the same way that Love Does has struck such a deep chord with adults, young readers will experience God in new and thrilling ways and see that living out our faith is certainly not boring!


My Review:
This devotional book does still offer some pictures here and there but there definitely is more words per page and this will take a little bit longer than some of the other devotionals I have reviewed.   It is about 3 total pages of words! I think it is just the right amount for any 10-13 year old.  This devotional is built by more stories that incorporate Jesus but not much scripture reference at all. I find that I always want my kids to have the words of TRUTH with real scriptures scattered across the pages.   So I am not a huge fan of the way this one was written.   It would be a good challenge for older kids to find a scripture to incorporate into this devotional which would get them in the word!

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!
