I read once that the average American buys one book per year.
We are way above average. We get at least one book a month, but mostly closer to 3-4 books a month. Some we buy, some are for reviews (like the one below), but books always have a way of finding us.
Not always is a book as well received as this one.
When I opened the package containing Duck Commander Devotions for Kids, Grace squealed, grabbed it, and retreated to her room. I haven't seen it since; she reads it every night before she goes to bed.
You can see a message below from Korie Robertson on why she created Duck Commander Devotions for Kids, but the short answer is that she wanted to help kids grow closer to God. Her devotional really does a great job of that.
But a devotional isn't the only component in bringing our children to the Lord. We need to be in constant prayer for them.
A Prayer for My Children
Dear heavenly Father,
Thank you for the beautiful, active, ornery children you've blessed me with. Thank you that they are healthy and strong. Thank you for their mischievous streaks and their kind hearts.
Thank you for sweet cuddles and sloppy kisses and warm hugs. Thank you for making me their mother.
Remind me, oh Lord, that my children aren't really mine but yours. Help me to open my hands and offer them to you. Dedicate them to your service.
Please be with my children today. Please guide their steps and open their hearts to the leading of the Holy Spirit. Keep them on the right path, and protect them from the enemy as he tries to steal them away from your flock.
Keep your words on their lips and in their minds, Lord, and keep them walking toward eternal life with you. Help them to grow in relationship with you each day.
Help me to be the mother my children need and deserve, slow to anger and quick to love. Help me be patient and fun and to nurture their delicate spirits.
Teach them Lord. Nurture them. Keep them company and remind them that they can call on you in everything.
In Jesus' precious name,
