Diane Stortz | Illustrated by Diane Le Feyer
Children will learn to trust God in everything as they learn about the names and character of God in the I Am Devotional. Through 100 devotions, children will see how God’s names reflect His love, strength, trustworthiness, etc., and what that means as they develop a strong faith.
Really lovely design and artwork. The layout is very appealing, with strong, attractive text treatment. The case laminate hardcover has a glitter overlay on the fire, which is a nice tactile and visual touch.
This is geared to a slightly older child, as there’s quite a bit of reading on each page. Each devotional is accented with a small illustration. All of the artwork is beautiful, and nicely illustrates each concept. The color work is bright and attractive, and the page layout is very well done.
These are well-written, simple devotionals about all the names of God. Each one includes the name (of God), the English explanation, and a few paragraphs on the subject. There’s a short prayer at the end of each devotional, as well as a few discussion questions. A few sample titles:
Prince of Peace
God of all Comfort
