Think, Act, Be Like Jesus

Ages: Elementary
Price: $12.99

Think, Act, Be Like Jesus is a 90 day devotion for kids about 8-12 ish.  It is divided into three sections (Think, Act and Be) with ten categories in each section.  All devotions begin with a Scripture, have a short explanation of the passage and ends with a prayer.  The back of the book states, "A Believe Devotional for Kids: Think, Act, Be Like Jesus shares the message that the more you believe, the more Jesus can change you from the inside out, to become the best person you can be."
The devotions in this book seem to be pretty good, but mostly short. Some of the devotions are pretty thought provoking, like the one about Surrender to God and Idols.   I would have liked to see an accompanying workbook with this, pressing kids to dig deeper into each theme and then apply the word.  I personally do not think that this alone would be enough for a personal quiet time.  I like to see God's Word opened and studied, not just an author's words to be read.  It looks like a good place to start your quiet time with and set your heart and mind on things above.

The book is very colorful and appealing.  It is nice to just flip through.

I received this book in exchange for a frank and honest review.  All opinions are my own.  Your results and/or opinions may very.
