Notes from Jesus

As surprising as it may seem, the Summer is half over. For me, the first half has been filled with lots of wonderful time with my grandsons and has just "flown" by! I'm sure the second half will go quickly as well, so I want to be sure I make the most of the time I am blessed to spend with these three boys. 

We are working on a project to help them learn to pray Scriptures back to God and pray for the pastors and teachers at church. We are also taking time each day they are here to read one devotion from the new book by Mikal Keefer and Group Publishing - Notes from Jesus.

Joani Schultz (one of the Grandmas with Heart) sent me this book to review and today I'm very happy to let you know about it. 

Notes from Jesus
Author - Mikal Keefer
Illustrator - Matt Wood
Publisher - Group Publishing
Ages - 

Favorite Features -

  • Written in First Person perspective "from" Jesus!
  • 26 one-page devotions
  • Cover topics like prayer, God's love, the Bible & more
  • Colorful illustrations for each devotion
  • I love the ideas for how to "become even better friends" at the end of each devotion
Group Publishing says; "Jesus is the stuff best friends are made of--especially if you're a kid! He’s always up for hearing how the day went, listening to worries, and laughing at silly jokes. And he wants to share about himself, too, as best friends do. 'Notes from Jesus' are His messages to new friends. Each playfully illustrated note includes:

• Answers to common faith questions kids ask, like 'What happens when I mess up?' and 'Is it okay to pray with my eyes open?'
• An inspirational Bible verse for kids to tuck away in their hearts
• Doable, kid-sized ideas for readers to become even better friends with Jesus
 Each note reminds children Jesus enjoys their company, and He wants a lifelong friendship which deepens with each new conversation. This is the perfect gift for kids just starting a relationship with Jesus...for young families joining a church...or as a meaningful birthday, holiday, or Christmas gift!"

I love this little book. It is a great conversation starter and a wonderful tool which will help my grandsons better understand not only Who Jesus is, but how they are able to really know and walk with Him. If you are looking for a book you are able to use with your grandchildren to hand down the faith - definitely check out "Notes from Jesus".

  1. It is so great to know the youngsters are learning about God and His Word at an early age. Praying your new week goes well.
