Here’s a compilation of thirty one of our blog’s quick devotional with each post on a verse from Paul’s epistles in the Bible.  I think they are ideal for daily reading as a project for a month.

I want each to interpret the verse well but also to apply it practically well too.

Here’s the listing:

In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 3: God and the Bible.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, March 27th 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is the third volume in the Answers Book for Kids series written by Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and published by Master Books.  My kids and I enjoyed the first two (review here and here) so we went forward to read together the third volume.  This particular book focuses on God and the Bible.  This book and others in this series uses a question and answer format in response to twenty two questions from kids.  I did not say this in my previous reviews but it stood out to me that when the book mentioned the kids’ age that asked the question it helped my kids realized they weren’t the only ones asking questions and this observation I hope leads them to think more about God and the Bible.  I appreciated that Ken Ham works with his co-author Cindy Malott to respond to these questions in a way that kids would be able to understand.  Before you make light of them I realized as a pastor and evangelists that some of these questions are also questions that adults asks.  I don’t doubt some parents will benefit from this themselves!

When I look at my Christian life I think the key to changing is a regular habit of confessing to God. Not that I arrived but I believe this is a means of grace for change that is often neglected.

It seems the last few Wednesday on our blog has become a “wee-kids Wednesdays” with Christian children homeschool lessons and review of children’s book.  Maybe that should be an ongoing trend!  Here’s a review of a new Christian Children’s book that just came out yesterday!

Quina Aragon. Love Made.  Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, February 5th 2019.  23 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a children’s book on God’s creation.  The subtitle of the book is “A Story of God’s Overflowing, Creative Heart.”  It informs the reader of how God created everything out of love but there’s more to the story!  The writer Quina Aragon wrote a beautiful book and it was also beautifully illustrated by Scotty Reifsnyder.  I enjoyed reading this book to my young kids.

As I minister to people the question comes up from time to time of how to read more when life gets busy.  I use to share my post  that directed people to a guest post I wrote for another blog.  Unfortunately that blog has ceased to exist and I thought it was regrettable since the website owner did a good job editing the grammar for my essay (I am notorious with bad grammar).  Fortunately I found a web archive online that saved the page so I was able to reproduce the improved  written version.  I also got to expand the article to include two more points!  So below are ten things that helps one read more when life gets busy.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 1: Creation and Fall.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, July 30th 2008. 48 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Over the years I have seen believers read various volumes of Ken Ham’s Answer Books and I was pleasantly surprised that they had a kids edition.  This work is volume one and the book covered the topics of creation and fall.  Using a question and answer format the book responds to twenty two questions sent to Answers in Genesis, a Creation apologetics ministry.  Ken Ham and Cindy Malott responds in a way that kids would be able to understand.

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading many months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of 1 Timothy 1:14.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 14 ὑπερεπλεόνασεν δὲ ἡ χάρις τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν μετὰ πίστεως καὶ
And the grace of our Lord overflowed with faith and

ἀγάπης τῆς ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ”
love which is of Jesus in Christ

Here are some observations:
