Life in the Spirit isn’t about cushioned pews and easy living—it’s about adventure, risk, daring, and the pursuit of wisdom. It’s about letting the awesome power of God work through you to do things you never thought possible.

In this brand-new 180-day devotional, you’ll learn the highest, truest, and most rewarding way to a life of wisdom, apprenticing with the Ultimate Master himself—Jesus Christ. May the Faith Be With You will give you a devotional experience that’s out of this world.

My thoughts:  My family loves Star Wars and this seemed like a really neat idea. A devotional which sort of reminds us of it (at least the cover.)  The age limit is 6 - 10 years, but it seemed as if it were for a lot younger kids. Maybe preschoolers, kindergartners. The print is large, the book is small, and there is nothing of substance. It's just a literal moment with God. Very simplistic.

The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids includes 365 devotions that tie to the themes and ideas found in the bestselling The Purpose Driven Life. Written at a third to fourth grade level, each devo includes a Scripture, short message, and prayer or thought for the day to help kids discover who they are in God’s eyes. Capturing the hearts of the new generation means ensuring they know their purpose and grow up confident of their value in God and their relationship to Christ.
God created each of his children with a purpose in mind … the time is now to, thoughtfully and prayerfully, start the incredible journey to finding that reason.

My thoughts:  THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE DEVOTIONAL FOR KIDS is a great devotional.  It opens with a verse or passage, goes into thoughts and a short devotional about the passage, then concludes with a prayer. There are 365 devotions in this, but they are not dated, just numbered, so if you miss a day, you can just start where you left off. I used this with my teens and tweens and they all love it, and give it five stars. HIghly recommended.
