Devotions books have always been a favorite genre of mine, whether it is a family style devotion book, whether personal, or even something my husband and I can work on together.
When I received my copy of Faith Forward a family style devotion book, my first thought was how pretty it was. Is this important? No. In the big picture what it looks like outside is not nearly as important as what is inside. However, I love a pretty book! I love a book that looks inviting, and this one does!
Once I looked through it and read through some devotions I concluded the that time and effort put into the cover goes throughout the book! The gorgeous look of the book is just the beginning! It is a gorgeous book throughout and the content is even better! Each little devotion (and the book contains 100) is a quick read based on a subject example : “When a job seems to big. Numbers 14:9” – this little story talks about the faithfulness of Caleb and Joshua when they spied on the promised land. After the devotion there are some discussion questions and then a prayer section. Also is a Key Idea corner with a central point.
This little book is really a great book for family devotions, it is simple and focused. It allows mom or dad or both, to spend a few minutes with the family each day bringing the focus back to the Lord and all that he is teaching us through his Word.
Even though my kids are older now, this is still a book I could see using with them! One thing I have learned is that my kids still love to listen to me read to them, and I would love to make this book a regular book we read, especially this winter by the fire!

NOTE: I received a copy of Faith Forward in exchange for an honest review.
