A Unique Devotional for Children

Children from all backgrounds need to know they are deeply and unconditionally loved by God, and the adults in their lives need spiritual tools that point them to God in times of happiness and despair.

Blessings, My Child accomplishes both. Every reading includes:

  • Engaging artwork that draws in the young reader
  • A brief passage of Scripture
  • A blessing from God
  • Discussion questions to go deeper

The book contains 101 blessings written for children 6-12 years old that can be read aloud by an adult or young reader.

#1: Children Are Special to Me

Mark 10:16 (NIV)
And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.      

Beloved Child,
You are so special to Me. I have always treasured My loved younger ones. You are willing to see Me and believe.

Your loving Jesus

  1.  Did you know how much I talk about how special children are to Me in the Bible?
  2. Why do you think I love children so much?
  3. What can you do better than grown-ups?


#3: No Fear in My Love

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. Instead perfect love drives away fear. Fear has to do with being punished. The one who fears does not have perfect love.      

Loving Child,
I want to fill you with My perfect love, so that you do not have to fear. My love always wants what is best for you.

Your precious Lord Jesus

  1. Why do you think My love is perfect?
  2. If love is perfect, why don’t you need to fear?
  3. Is it easy to have perfect love?

#39: Forgiven to Forgive

Colossians 3:13-14
Put up with one another. Forgive one another if you are holding something against someone. Forgive, just as the Lord forgave you. And over all these good things put on love. Love holds them all together perfectly as if they were one.      

Dear One,
It is so important for you to forgive others just as much as I have forgiven you, which is always and totally! And most importantly, show love to all those around you. Love is what I want most for My children. I love you always.


  1. Is it always easy to forgive those who have hurt you?
  2. Why is it important that you forgive?
  3. Is there someone you would like to forgive for hurting you?

Even Harder News About Abortion

God had a purpose for these abortion survivors, as He does for every successfully aborted baby. I believe we must speak out whenever we can.

Deliver Us from Evil

God has intention for each life formed. I, for one, will continue to support the rights of those who have no voice to advocate for themselves.

Lord, Please Help Our Children!

Our children have lost the ability to learn about God’s principles in all venues except for the home and the church. We, as parents, grandparents or other care givers, have a bigger challenge than ever to teach our young ones about how God values all.

Curiosity Can be Good for Your Mental Health

Christmas is a time of wonder for children. They take in the delights of the season, while we adults can be trudging along with our noses to the grindstone, and thereby missing those very same delights.

Anxiety WITH Thanks

When we find a reason to be thankful to our Lord in the midst of our anxiety, I believe it helps us remember all the Lord is doing and has done for us.
