Synopsis from Amazon:

God’s Power in Me is an interactive 52-day devotional that encourages young readers 8-12 to break free from negative thinking and focus on the positive truths of who God made them to be. Through daily devotions paired with a 90-second affirmation kids can say aloud every day, readers will grow closer to God and learn to challenge the personal doubts that might be holding them back.

I’m not good enoughI don’t deserve to be their friend. And things will never change. Kids tell themselves things like this every day, and popular Bible teacher and speaker Margaret Feinberg wants to help them defeat those self-doubts and stop believing the lies—because God only tells us the truth about ourselves, and that truth is we are all meant to have a joyous and powerful life.

Throughout the devotions in God’s Power in Me, kids will discover:

  • Quick daily affirmations they can hold on to, biblical teachings, and practical applications for their own lives
  • Inspiration to banish any negative thoughts and ideas they may have
  • Encouragement to stand in their own truths while also growing closer to God in the process

God’s Power in Me:

  • Has an engaging two-color interior
  • Is perfect for anyone ages 8-12 going through their pre-teen years, and can be used by girls and boys
  • Provides kids with the tools to actively attack automatic negative thoughts every day while also encouraging spiritual development
  • Can be used over and over as a daily devotional
  • Is a great gift for Confirmation, Easter, birthdays, or to offer encouragement

Leslie’s Review: 4 Stars/I really, really love it

I absolutely love Margaret Feinberg’s devotional, God’s Power in Me: 52 Declarations and Devotions for Kids! God’s Power in Me is geared toward 8-12 year-olds and has 52 devotional entries. Each devotion centers around a truth based in the Bible and a lie that Satan or the world tells us. Each devotion had a corresponding Bible verse to go with it and a main point that is often to the side somewhere within that devotion. At the end of each devotion entry there is a “Declaration” journal prompt.

I loved that right off the bat, in the beginning of the devotional, there is a list of declarations about being a Child of God. I loved how Ms. Feinberg shares relatable stories from her life to help get the point of the devotion entry across. I loved how in God’s Power in Me there is a “Declaration” journal prompt at the end of each devotional entry. I also liked at the end of the devotional there is another list of the declarations from the beginning, but it includes Bible verses that correspond with each declaration.

God’s Power in Me: 52 Declarations and Devotions for Kids is a great devotional for kids 8-12 year-olds. This would also be a great devotional for kids to do with their families or guardians. I believe it could be used as part of a Christian curriculum, class, or Bible study for 8-12 year-olds.

Have you read God’s Power in Me: 52 Declarations and Devotions for Kids? How did you use the devotional? What did the kids in your life like about the devotional?
