Mother's Day Giveaway - Devotional For Your Little Ones

One of the sweetest parts of being a mom is seeing our children model what we do. Whether it's playing kitchen, rocking a baby, sweeping leaves, or "fixing" something that's broken, children learn by imitation. And the absolute best thing they could imitate is the time we spend with God.

I'm sure you are familiar with the classic devotional book My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. Now there is a bedtime prayer edition of the bestselling children's devotional for ages 3-7, Jesus Wants All of Me Prayer Edition. Adapted and illustrated by Phil A. Smouse, (who illustrated the Wanda Brunstetter books I'm giving away here), each day has a Bible verse, a simple devotional accompanied by a colorful picture, and a bedtime prayer. There's even a space for a young schoolchild (or the parent) to write the child's own words for Jesus.

And just like the "grown-up" version, a topical index in the back of the book identifies by date all the devotionals for each subject, such as "Doing Things My Way," "Fear", "Loving Others," "Obeying God," and "Selfishness." You can see sample pages on Phil Smouse's website.

Since it first appeared in 1999, Jesus Wants All of Me Prayer Edition--a children's version of the classic devotional My Utmost for His Highest--has introduced more than 750,000 kids to the deeper truths of the Christian life. Now it's available in a special bedtime prayer edition!

Retelling My Utmost for ages 3 to 7, this book features
  • short, simple, easy-to-understand readings
  • Bible verses from the New King James Version
  • fun, colorful, contemporary illustrations
  • relevant, age-appropriate bedtime prayers with each entry.
Jesus Wants All of Me Prayer Edition is a wonderful way to introduce growing hearts and minds to the unchanging truths of God's Word.


I have a copy of this book, autographed by Phil Smouse at the Expo, for one of you to share with your little ones! Just leave a comment on this post by 6:00 p.m. Thursday (5/7) and I will choose a winner! (Continental US residents only, please.) As with all of this week's giveaways, receive an extra chance to win by posting the Mother's Day Giveaway button on your blog!

Happy Reading and Devotional Sharing!

my daughter would love to read this-she is still learning her prayers so this would be a wonderful, fun tool to assist her.

Believe it or not, I had not read My Utmost for His Highest until 1/1/09. I have made it a part of my daily devos and find myself reflecting back on it throughout the day and even days later. I would love to have a children's version for my youngest daughter (soon to be 6).
Thanks for the Mom's Day Giveaways!
