The Plans I Have for You is
an illustrated 90-day devotional written by bestselling children's book author Amy Parker and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton, teaching and inspiring kids to dream about their future, to focus on faith, love, and joy, and recognize that God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of us.  There is an accompanying journal, which prompts creative thinking and exploration of the talents and personalities that make us special, and then helps explore how God may use our unique traits to spread love and joy and make the world a better place.

I really liked the journal. It guided kids into thinking about plans (even though those plans may change), emphasizing that God has a specific purpose for us, which provides a sense of belonging in kids that are trying to find their way. The illustrations are beautiful, appropriate for both boys and girls. The only complaint I have is that it's not absolutely clear how the journal and devotional line up (although it's pretty easy to figure out). It was a really nice way to get our kids more involved in devotional time!

I have a chance to give away a copy of the devotional and journal. To enter, leave a comment with how you give your kids a sense of purpose. Deadline is January 29th.
