  • love is

    Love is …

    … the main point of the Bible.

    … the reason people go to church every Sunday.

    … the purpose of Jesus’ life.


    If you want to know what Christianity is all about, if you want to follow God, if you want to live like Jesus, LOVE is a great place to start. This four-week devotional helps kids discover how to live like Jesus. Each week they will learn ways to apply this verse to their daily life:  “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and grew in favor with God and people.” (Luke 2:52)


    Because, just like Jesus, kids can grow up with WISDOM, FAITH, and FRIENDSHIP. And those three things all come down to understanding one big word: LOVE.


    Love Is is part of the 252 Kids Series, interactive devotional books for elementary-age children. Based on Luke 2:52, these devotionals are designed to help kids grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship.

  • Don't Miss it

    Parents have approximately 936 weeks from the time their child is born until he or she graduates from high school. That time goes by fast. And the responsibility to shape a child’s faith and character can seem overwhelming.

    But there is something parents can do. They can make this week count. And then do it again, and again.


    In Don’t Miss It, authors Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy help parents discover that what they understand about their kids now has the potential to change their kids’ future. If parents don’t miss what’s happening during this phase of their kids’ lives, then maybe kids won’t miss some important things they need to know about life. That’s why what parents do this week matters. It’s just a phase. And none of us want to miss it.

  • know God

    How do we know God?

    Knowing God doesn’t happen in a moment. It’s not like we wake up one morning and BAM, we know God, we have Him all figured out, and we don’t have any more questions or doubts.


    This book isn’t about knowing everything there is to know about God. Know God is a 4-week, interactive journal designed to start kids on a journey of everyday things they can do to know God better: hear, pray, talk, and live.


    Know God is part of the 252 Kids Series, interactive devotional books for elementary-age children. Based on Luke 2:52, these devotionals are designed to help kids grow in wisdom, faith, and friendship.
