About the Contributor(s) L. B. E. Cowman

L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.

Overall Rating
What I really like about this devotional is that while it covers things like fear, seeing prayer answered, and the tests that life brings our way, it does it in a way that it makes sense to kids. These lessons are in bite sized chunks so as to not overwhelm kids and are easily understandable. I'd recommend it for kids age 7-12, though it's geared for kids age 9-12.

From the back of the book:
Life Isn’t Easy, Just Because you’re a Kid.

My Review:
With life’s busy schedule parents often find it hard to help their children with their daily devotions. These devotions, which vary in length from one-half page to a full page, make it easy to find the time.

All scripture quoted, unless otherwise stated, is taken from the NIV. Each of the devotions begins with scripture, followed by the discussion of a topic that correlates with the scripture and ends with a prayer.

This is a wonderful way to help your tween become rooted in God’s Word. It can be used to either start or end your day in God’s Word and many of the topics covered in the devotions could easily be used to initiate discussions on situations at school or daily stresses. Yes even children have stressful events in their lives.

I loved these devotions. They are perfect for ages 8-12. I would highly recommend them.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book, by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own. (Posted on 12/21/2014)
