From the Bestselling Author of Jesus Calling®
Spend Time with Jesus, the Friend Who Is Always with You
Jesus is the Friend who is always with you. Jesus Today®: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children’s hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.
Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.
Adapted from ECPA Gold Medallion–winner Jesus Today®, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures. It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.
Spend time with Jesus today . . .

My take on this book:
If your looking for a great little devotional for you children Jesus Today by Sarah Young just might be it. First of all the cover is cute but it's really what's inside that makes this a great little devotional.  It's a book that will share the love that Jesus has for the user and all of us! It also shares with users about the hope that Jesus offers to them. Each devotion is written just as if God is talking directly to the reader. There are 150 devotions included and the author provides several scriptures to go along with each one. I think that the devotions are very relevant to the age range that this book is for, and honestly as I read them I found hope within the pages myself. One that really spoke to me was Live In My Light which talks about the world getting darker but how God's glory continues to shine brighter! Hope is something we all need, and this little book provides not only hope but shares that God loves all of us and what child, or adult for that matter doesn't need to hear that! Overall I really think this is a beautiful book, it is very sturdy, so that it can withstand daily use. The presentation page makes it perfect for gift giving. What a wonderful way to encourage youngsters to share a bit of quiet time with Jesus daily while using this book.
