10 Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God, Book Review

By December 6, 2012Book Reviews

Old Story New: Ten-Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God by Marty Machowski is a children’s book about the New Testament. Written by a children’s ministry leader, the book includes a series of activities to draw children into deeper knowledge. With ten-minute devotions each day, children get into the routine of their own Bible study.

The book includes 78 daily lessons for children’s Bible study. It’s simple to use for preschool or grade school, though I did not feel it would meet the needs older children as it is written for a younger audience. What makes this book special is that the lessons can be done with mom, dad, an older sibling or even a grandparent. Learning the Bible through another family member is a great way to share your beliefs through the generations.

Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Deut 8:9 NIV 1984

The book is big and easy to read, though I think it would do well to include photos and images for children who are visual learners. It’s over 400 pages and intended to be used daily for a year-and-a-half, so you may want to laminate the cover to keep it from wearing out too soon.

My Amazon Rating 2/5

    Glad you reviewed this one, I was going to possibly get it. I am looking for the children and am stuck.

      It’s actually meant to be a book that parents lead their children through devotionals with. There are some suggestions in some of the devotionals of visuals to make on your own, so it’s very interactive for parent and child.
