Ever since our girls were tiny . . .
. . . we've been sharing the heart of God with them in the evening times as a family. How precious it is to snuggle together on the couch and read the Scriptures!
When the girls were very tiny, not even one year old, we were given several beautiful toddler "Bibles" and Christian books to read with our girls. How they loved sitting with us every evening, reading some of the same books over and over, giggling and smiling and enjoying being all together!
As they grew into readers, the world of family Bible devotionals just opened up to us. We were amazed at how many children's Bibles and devotional books existed. It wasn't like this when we were young!
One of the books we read with the girls quite a few years ago was Starr Meade's book, Mighty Acts of God. It was accurate, filled with simply told events found in the Bible, and the artwork wasn't insulting. We loved it!
Starr Meade has now written a sequel to Mighty Acts of God. How wonderful! Another option for families who have younger children at home (ages 5-10), Wondrous Works of God is filled with 90 more events from the Bible, beginning with the true account of God creating Eve, and ending with the epic visions in the book of Revelation.
What I thought was very unique about this book, as well as Mighty Acts of God, is that each retelling event highlights an aspect of God's character as well as includes a discussion guide to help the whole family see and understand the wondrous works of God.
Each of the 90 retellings in Wondrous Works of God are typically three pages in length, including the artwork.
At the end of each retelling, there are questions to think about and answer, as well as extras to do as a family.
Here are a couple of samples of the artwork in this book:
Beautiful! While I love every stage of our parenting that we are in, I do wish we'd had this book to use with our girls when they were younger. They're a bit too old for Wondrous Works of God now, but some day, we'll have grandchildren with whom we can snuggle up on the couch and share the events of the Bible!
Wondrous Works of God is a hardbound book containing 288 pages. The pages are durable, high quality paper. If you are looking for something new to share with your children, this is an excellent option!
I received one copy of Wondrous Works of God from Crossway in exchange for my honest review of this family Bible devotional. No other compensation was provided.

Thanks, Julieanne, for sharing this with us! We just finished a devotional, one that we've been through several times, so I've been "shopping" for a new family devotional. I will need to pursue this one, I think. Thanks!
