VeggieTales Every Day with God Kids Devotional Book #Giveaway #EveryDayWithGod


Part of our homeschool routine each day is starting off with reading from a kids devotional and my son would like you to know that his new favorite is Every Day with God from VeggieTales. We were using another one but he prefers this as a kids devotional because “it’s short and talks about God.” I wish I could tell you that he loves learning from it or so much more but that was his reasoning and I can’t argue with his honest opinion. From my perspective as a parent, it’s a pretty … [Read more...]
