10 Brilliant Benefits of Devotionals for Children Sponsored by Say & Pray Devotions


There are so very many things I love about this book!  First of all, of course, is the message.  Just the message I want to share with my baby!  Each day holds for baby and you a little bit of words about ‘God’s World’ and ‘Say & Pray’, along with a a colorful pictures and key words that you can utilize to teach words, letter familiarity, and help with vocabulary.  Each of the Say & Pray sections have a little verse, the ‘address’ to the verse, and a quick and simple prayer perfect for reading to baby and teaching to toddlers!  I love that as they grow they will be learning these little prayers so that when they reach that time, they will be even more ready to start praying on their own.

Teaching them to have devotional time from such an early age, it also helps us to remember the importance of our own devotional time!  Not to long ago, I wrote about the importance of time management.  Having our devotional time as a set part of our schedule not only aides us in keeping our relationship with God on the forefront, it also begins a foundation of keeping priorities, managing time and learning to set schedules.

#BabyBaby! A book for Bébé! Sponsored by #FlyBy

#BabyBaby! #Win A book for Bébé! US/CAN Ends 9/29 Sponsored by @CraftyZoo & #FlyBy What an adorable little read this is to share with baby!  Studies have shown that the more we read to and talk to our little ones, the better their verbal understanding and larger their vocabulary will be.  As pretty much every Christian knows, scripture says “If you lead a child on the path which he should go, when he is old he will not stray from it” Proverbs 22:6.  That being said, my favorite line in the whole book is at the end when a mirror reflects baby’s precious face and you read, ‘Who does God love? God loves _____’.  The space is there so that you can write baby’s name in, of course, but I think I’ll leave it blank so that one day we can pass it on.  It also shares a scripture at the very end of the book, one that we would all be good to remember!  I love that it’s there at the end of the book so that we can add that into our teaching the little ones and even get a new scripture memorized for ourselves!

Here’s what the publisher has to say:

A sweet, colorful board book that appeals to a baby’s interest in looking at other babies

Babies enjoy books, looking at other babies, and their own flowering abilities. This short rhyming poem combines all three in a sweet and happy way, while introducing babies to God’s love for them. The simple words are paired with colorful images of babies engaging in familiar activities, allowing the book to be used as an introductory concept book as well. And it ends with a reminder that Baby is always loved by God.
