Help Your Child Develop A Heart For God

In the My Big Prayers series of devotional prayer journals, parents and grandparents will help their little one develop a heart for God while creating a unique keepsake the family will treasure for a lifetime.

The Psalms, Volume 1 is the first book in the upcoming series and features forty devotions over the Psalms. Each devotion has six sections, a Bible reading, Heart to Heart devotion, Questions and Conversations, Prayer Starters, Creative Activity, and a place to record Prayers Answered.

The Creative Activity will be the child’s favorite part of the book and will ensure that a keepsake will be created. In this section, the child will be prompted to draw a picture of something that was discussed in the Bible reading or the Heart to Heart devotion.
