CHAPTER 1

Can You Tell Me about God?

Mama, I've got questions for you. Who is God, and what does he do? How did God make the great big sky? How did he put the stars so high?

Did God make whales and zebras, too? Does God take care of me and you? Is God close by me while I play? I want to know these things today.


God Is Your Creator

Our Bible Verse

The skies were made by GOD's command; he breathed the word and the stars popped out.

Psalm 33:6, The Message


Our Devotion

God said the words, "Let there be light." That's how he made the day and night. With his words, God made the sky, the trees and bees and geese that fly.

He spoke to make the land and sea. He told the stars where they should be. He made the grass and animals, too. When God made people, his work was through.


Our Prayer

Dear God, thank you for making our great big world. Thank you for pretty flowers and puffy clouds. Thank you for making me, too. In Jesus' name, amen.


Fun Idea for Mama and Me

Look through a window or go outside. How many things can you name that God made?

    "My Mama & Me" by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley

    "My Mama & Me" by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley is a selection of devotions for mother and child to read together. This book is unique because each page offers a new devotion, prayer, Bible verse, and a bonding activity for mom and child that are all tied together in a way that even young children can understand. With around 25 devotions, this would be a perfect way to end your day with your kids, or even to begin your day.




    These devotionals are designed for younger kids to easily understand, and are even written in rhyming schemes to make them even catchier! I would recommend this book for moms of kids ages 3 and up. The illustrations are colorful and relevant; Devotionals themselves offer great truths for children, such as Jesus is God's son, God keeps you safe, and being kind to others. My 5 year old really enjoyed this book, and the little bit of special time that we were able to create every day. Highly recommend this one!
