Book Review: Hope for Each Day

Hope for Each Day: 365 Devotions for Kids is written by Billy Graham and adapted by Diane Stortz, and it's an enjoyable devotion book.

In the Introduction, Graham shared, "Every day I turn to the Bible to give me strength and wisdom for the day and hope for the future.... May God use these daily selections to encourage you both to live more fully for Christ each day and to trust His great love--no matter what comes your way."

As the title indicates, this book consists of 365 devotions. Each daily devotion features the title, scripture verse, and devotional text for each day of the year. At the end of the book, there's a section called Reading the Bible, which features two reading plans: 30 Days with Jesus and 90 Days through the Bible. It's ideal to start this devotional on January 1, yet readers may start reading at any time throughout the year.

According to the back cover: "Each day's devotion corresponds with the theme and Scripture of the adult devotional, making it easy for families to share devotional time together."

Hope for Each Day is geared towards children and teenagers, particularly third through eighth grades. With one devotional per page, this book may easily be added to family or personal devotional times, and it's a wonderful way to start setting aside time each day to spend with God.

Note: I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
