A few months ago I was asked by an author if I would preview a children’s devotional and, if I felt led, to write a “blurb” for the cover. Well to say I was honored is an understatement. When the manuscript arrived I went right to work and I was impressed with the book and I submitted the “blurb”. I am happy to say that my autographed copy of that published book is now in my hands and it is even better now that it has all of the illustrations and photographs in it! 🙂
Creation Inspirations by Cheryl Pickett is a children’s devotional book that gives you a new view of the world around you. Each section of the book is based on a different animal everything from the arctic fox to a prairie dog to a wood duck. First she teaches the children about the animal-where it lives what it eats and what they are like. Next is the “new view” where by utilizing the animal’s God-given behaviors and tendencies she teaches a Biblical character lesson complete with verses to copy and/or memorize. The last part of each section is an activity based on the animal.
This book is geared towards 6-10 year olds and would make a great addition to any church or family’s library. It is perfect for family or homeschool devotions as it can be used for 25 weeks of activities. You could use it for an entire school year’s worth of devotions if you add in some Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter devotions to round out the year. Creation Inspirations is an affordable curriculum too, at only $12.99 + shipping and handling this is a book that every family with young children can use to learn more about God and His amazing creations.
