" The book begins with letters to the parents and kids on how to use this book, then the first four devotions are kind of an introduction. Each two-page spread includes a Bible verse, the devotional, and a prayer. This book is tailored to elementary-aged readers, but I think it could be introduced slowly to younger children, too.

Great read and revelations to all kids who want to know the God of Universe… With lots of pages to learn new situations and the written known scriptures, there is even the “Do Deeper” column, where kids can ponder about their lives and how God manifested in the past…and even write the prompts in their journal to reflect and think about God and life in general.

"100 kid-friendly devotions focused on the names of God!

One year, the church that I grew up in had a sermon series on the names of God.

I had long since moved away, but I listened to the service online every week because I was fascinated with all the different qualities these names convey.

This 224-page hardbound book will be the perfect introduction to the many names of God.

The book begins with letters to both parents and kids on how to use this book, then the first four devotions are kind of an introduction that looks at what's in a name and how to especially use the names of God in a respectful manner.

Each two-page spread includes a colorful top tab highlighting a specific name of God, a related Bible verse, the devotional, and a prayer.

The book really covers a variety of names, from descriptive names to titles to specific names of Hebrew origin.

I think the illustrations are pleasant and really enhance the topics and the layout of the pages keeps the eye traveling from point to point, as well.

This book is tailored to elementary-aged readers, but I think it could be introduced slowly (like reading one a week) to younger children, too. I think this book would be equally appropriate to middle-school readers, unless you happen to have a child who skips the tween stage and goes straight from child to teenager overnight.

Children will learn to trust God in everything as they learn about the names and character of God in the I Am Devotional. Through 100 devotions, children will see how God’s names reflect His love, strength, trustworthiness, etc., and what that means as they develop a strong faith.


Name of God: I AM


Meaning: God is to be worshipped


Application: Worship God by how you live!


Diane Stortz has a proven history of connecting well with both children and parents in her writing. With sales of 500,000 inspirational books for children, Diane is a trusted name for Christian families. The art of Diane Le Feyer has captivated readers of I Am and will continue to delight in this accompanying devotional with vibrant illustrations throughout and a vivid cover embellished with foil and lots of striking glitter.


The I Am Devotional is the perfect companion to I Am, the Bible storybook that first introduced children to the names and character of God.



My Review:

A devotional is a good way to teach our children as well as ourselves a proper way to study the Bible. It is always good for beginners, as well as veterans that need to study the Bible. It gives us a kick in the backside to get us interested in God's word and sometimes it takes that to get us going again in the right direction.


I Am Devotional: 100 Devotions About the Names of God, is a book created for ages 6-10 and the set up is pretty simple it consists of scripture, devotional/lesson, prayer, questions, and dig deeper verse. These can be read any way you like. There is indeed a hundred to choose from and no set way to make use of it. Just dig in! A great starter devo for youth ages. Even has some illustrations in it.


**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.

Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
Psalm 9:10


Just to jump right into it, let me say I’m thoroughly impressed by this devotional book for kiddos! The more you know someone, the more intimate your relationship becomes. What better way to encourage children in seeking God than to study His names?

Each devotional has a name of God it focuses on, such as “Bread of Life” or “The Lord is My Banner.” It begins with a Biblical reference (which could lead the parents to further discussion if desired) and then goes right into a story which relates to the topic (the particular name of God).

There is a written out prayer, which I also love because it is just one more way for a child to learn how to have those quiet times with God — whether they hear their parents saying it or whether they’re working through this devotional on their own (which is definitely doable for an older child).

Additionally, each day’s study has a couple questions to promote discussion (if in a family setting) or further thoughts (if studying alone). These aren’t always super deep but, rather, a good mixture. For example, on a page studying “Bread of Life,” it asks, “What are your favorite foods?” followed by “What do you think heaven will be like?” On a page studying “God of All Comfort,” it asks, “What are some of the ways people are different from one another?” and “What are some of the ways all people are alike?”

Lastly, there is a “Go Deeper” section which points to more Scripture and asks a question. This is typically from another book of the Bible, so it subtly teaches the plenary aspect of God’s Word — how it all ties together.

Overall, I’m very pleased to have this on our bookshelves now. I look forward to working through this with my children when they get older (at 3 and 1, this is still a little over their heads). If you’re looking for a new book to study with your elementary-age kids, this is an excellent choice.

" I was blown away by the hardback cover, how it glows and the fact that it’s textured and sparkles. I also thought the animated illustrations by Diane LeFeyer were inviting and beautiful. This devotional starts out with a short note to parents and kids letting them know how to use this devotional and what to look forward to.

I loved how this devotional started out with Moses and the burning bush and what God told him his name was. The next devotional looks into What’s in a name? The author talks about names and that many of the names in the Bible often told about the person. She talks about Adam and Eve and what their names meant. Then she says that sometimes God changed people’s names to reflect a change in who they were.

The author states, “God’s names have meaning. I am Who I Am is the name God told Moses, but the Bible has many other names for God. As you go through this book and learn more of God’s names, you will get to know Him better and trust Him more. And you can start today!”

Devotions in this book are based on forty of the many names for God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit found in scriptures. They are written to help children develop an understanding of what the names tell us about God, how we should respond, and how we can see those characteristics of God at work in our own lives.

Each devotion includes discussion questions, prayer, and a Go Deeper Bible verse to explore. Families can work through the book together, and older children can enjoy using the book for grown-up-style devotions on their own. I liked that it also had a section that asked the kids questions that made them think like, “Have you ever made a promise you couldn’t keep? What happened? What do you think is the best thing about God’s promises and power? It helps make things a little more engaging.

The author states, “my prayer is for Psalm 9:10 to be true for you and your children every day: “Those who know your name put their trust in you” Has a purple ribbon to mark your place
