Book Review: VeggieTales Every Day with God

Book Description:

Newly updated VeggieTales art and content refresh these daily devotionals, giving kids a fun and meaningful way to think about God each day
Every Day with God is the latest 365-day devotional from VeggieTales. The updated content and art offer the perfect opportunity for parent and child to share time together each day. Each entry includes a Bible verse, short devotion, Thought of the Day, and prayer. The content will help children learn more about God and develop a daily practice to keep Him close in their lives. The book is perfect for bedtime reading, family devotion time, or as a fresh way to start each day! Ages 4-7

My love for all things VeggieTales goes back over 15 years. Although my kids are 18 and 13, I still pay attention when I hear a VeggieTale song or learn a new product is out. That’s why I wanted to check out the VEGGIETALES EVERY DAY WITH GOD: 365 Devotions for Boys.

This is perfect for boys ages 4-7. It’s small enough for them to hold, bright, colorful, and features all the favorite characters. It numbers each devotional by “Day 1” instead of January 1, so you can start any time of year and keep organized. The readings are short with a verse, a topic boys can relate to, a thought of the day and a short prayer. I think it makes for a great evening routine where you can keep the conversation going before bed.

I highly recommend the VEGGIETALES EVERY DAY WITH GOD.

I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

No Wonder

Posted by Julie on May 19, 2011 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

I had my follow up appointment regarding my recent laparoscopy. The surgery report was good but I confessed overall I’m feeling lousy and have for quite some time. I explained the symptoms and he ordered a couple tests. Turns out I had two additional things going on beyond the surgery recovery.

No wonder.

I dismissed a small issue and let it quickly evolve into something big. As the situation grew, it was more toxic, quite painful. When finally identified it attacked me from sides.

Isn’t that a lot like sin?

One of my favorite lessons on the matter comes from VeggieTales. Junior Asparagus meets a Fib from Outer Space, seems like a neat alien, nice enough. Junior breaks his dad’s bowling plate and he decides to tell a fib, a lie. One lie grows into another and another and suddenly Fib is a huge force threatening the entire city. It takes Junior confessing his sin and asking for forgiveness to save everyone.

Is there something threatening to take over your life, a toxin spreading like wildfire called sin? It can be anything, let’s remember in God’s eyes my lie is the same measure of sin as Ted Bundy’s serial murders. But guess what?

So is His forgiveness.

Don’t let a small thing overwhelm you.  Why not go to Christ today? He loves you and can’t wait to spend time with you!
