Over the Advent season I was responsible for creating the countdown to Christmas day in our church facebook group. I decided to focus on the different names for Jesus. It was an amazing journey for me. I knew the names of Jesus, but seeing many of the compiled into one space was incredible. Counsellor, Prince of Peace and Good Shepherd, are just a few names that show how Jesus is everything I need. I wish I had the “I Am Devotional – 100 Devotions about the Names of God” while I was creating my list. The “I Am Devotional” by Diane Stortz is beautiful devotional about the many descriptive names for God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit that are found in the Bible. The author explores how each name for God tells us something about who he is and how he shows us that he loves us. Each devotional is broken into sections. There is a Banner that shares the name of God in both English and what I believe to be Hebrew. Then it is followed by the title and a scripture verse. The devotional is short, perfect for reading right before bedtime. Each one is written with children in mind, using simple text and descriptions that children can understand. There is a short prayer and discussion question at the end of each devotional, and finally, there is a “Go Deeper” Bible verse to explore. The images included with each devotion are colourful and bright, holding my children’s attention while I’m reading to them. The Book is hard-covered. I like this for a daily devotional as I find they hold up better than paperbacks. There is also an attached ribbon bookmark to help you keep your place each night. The Bible can be confusing to read, especially for new believers. God has many different names and it can often be difficult for little ones to understand that they are all names for God. This devotional helps explain how each different name for God mirrors one of his characteristics. My children hear on communion Sunday’s that Jesus is the “Bread of Life”. This is a concept that is difficult for them to grasp. The author has taken the time to explain how our souls are hungry for a forever life with God, similar to how our bodies are hungry for food. Each devotional is written with children in mind and uses words and concepts that young children can understand. Proverbs 22: 6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” The “I AM Devotional” contains 100 devotions that will grow your child’s faith and encourage her to grow up strong in God’s word. It is available at most major retail outlets including Tommy Nelson. Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.

I have spent much of the summer searching for a devotional book to use for the majority of our school year. We do a few specific studies throughout the year, but I usually stick with one memory verse and a devotional for our daily bible study, especially while the kids are young. I finally found this one and could not be happier. Since there are 100 devotions, it will last most of the year. I love that it teaches just how amazing God is so the kids can get a sense of this while they are still young. I have always loved learning about the names of God so it will be wonderful for me as well.
Cover 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. Illustrations 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. Text 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: Friend Father Prince of Peace God of all Comfort etc.
