A definite must for family devotions. My boys are 12, 7 and 2. It is so precious to hear each of them answering the weekly focus question each day. A wonderful tool to teach/show my children how to have a relationship with our God.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the book we keep coming back to over and over again for our family devotions. It is practical, easy to read, short daily readings. I can't say enough nice things about this book. All the fundamentals of the Christian faith wrapped up in one book that goes down easy for a six year old to the adults in the crowd. The only warning would be the section on baptism. As you may or may not know, the Westminster Shorter teaches that infant family members in a Christian household should be baptized. This is not a teaching found in the bible but is still an 'unreformed' position that the Anabaptists fleshed out and got right. As a family we just skip those chapters and do our own biblical teaching on baptism which is believer's baptism, symbolic of the believer's new life in Christ. Infants can't trust and repent so how could they be baptized as a believer? They can't, bogus doctrine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Our children are 8, 6, 4, 2, and 2 months. We have found this book to be an excellent resource for family worship. The author covers one topic every day for one week, and because of this, we have found that our children have a good understanding of each point by week's end. It has been exciting to know that they understand the 'primary purpose of man' and that they are not just repeating the Westminster Confession void of its meaning or intent. We credit this book for our children's growth in this area.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
