Each devotional has a date on it. So, just turn to today’s date to begin and use it the next 365 days. You don’t have to wait to January 1. Each devotional also has a short Bible story and an application. There are questions or thoughts for you and your child to discuss. The whole devotional takes about five minutes. The great thing about the book is that it can be used from the earliest ages (around 3) to the early teens.
