A Devotional for Boys

I believe there is a generation of kids who need the positive influence of Christ followers in their lives. In addition to spending time with these kids, getting great printed resources into their hands, is also a great way to guide them.

I admire authors who are able to write so as to engage the tween market (ages 8-12). Today, I feature an author who has done just that. 

Carol McAdams Moore has written a devotional book for boys and also one for girls. Today I feature the one for boys. The title is: Dare U 2 Open This Book. 

The book consists of 90 two-page devotionals. Each one begins with a scripture, similar to adult devotionals. But, the similarity stops there. After the verse, Carol asks the kids, "What if . . . " What if they were in the situation the scripture poses. Such as what if they were David and were standing in front of Goliath? What would you ask Jesus if he came walking on water in front of you? 

But, they are not only asked to answer the question, but to draw, doodle, write or however they feel they can best answer the question. The pages are in black and white and on newsprint paper which is easy to write on. The pages are also creatively designed to attract tween kids, with ample space to record their thoughts.

If you are looking for a resource to give to your child, grandchild, nephew or another young man, consider this devotional.

Next time we will feature Carol's devotional for girls. 

Carol McAdams Moore writes for children and youth in the Christian and general markets. Her writing credits include work for David C. Cook; Urban Ministries, Inc.; Christian Education Warehouse; Clubhouse; Clubhouse, Jr.; Lifeway magazines; and The Christian Communicator. Her desire is that every child will answer Jesus’ call and discover God’s purpose for his or her own life. You can find Carol at:
