Bedtime Devotions with Jesus - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Thomas Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
After the busyness of the day is done, before your child nods off to sleep, snuggle up to read God’s Word and daily reminders about how much He loves and takes care of us. Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is a collection of prayers and devotions written by pastors, pastor’s wives, children’s ministers, and other church leaders. In this book are valuable lessons on such topics as thankfulness, obedience, trusting God, being kind, loving others, and many more. God’s Word comes alive using simple language, and the devotions are featured with delightful illustrations of teddy bears. This book will teach children ages 4–8 the value and joy of spending time with God every day.

Each devotional includes a scripture, a brief devotional reading, a prayer, and a meaningful takeaway that helps children build a strong foundation of faith. This is the first children’s book in the hugely popular MyDaily™ Devotional line.

My Review:

Children are impressionable, and instilling words and lessons about Jesus at a young age will help instill a stronger spiritual approach when they get older.  This hardback book is a 52-week devotional that will engage children and captivate them to act out the deeds, rather than just hear about them. Each day contains a verse, a devotion, a prayer, and a truth about God.  There's also darling illustrations throughout the book.  Each devotional is from a pastor or church authority from different denominations around the country.  For instance, week 9 is from Dr. Mike Whitson of First Baptist Church in North Carolina.  Bedtime Devotions with Jesus is a great way to instill the love and works of Jesus to your child right before bed each night.

Win It!
 
One person will win a hardcover book copy of Bedtime Devotions with Jesus.

I have my granddaughter most of the time and I have several Bible story books and a Children's Bible that we read every day. She is just 15 months old but she recognizes the books when I get them out.
