Everyday is a Blessing
I received this delightfully illustrated devotional from Thomas Nelson to review and I fell in love with the sweet pages as soon as I saw the book!
I haven’t read the entire book yet, but what I have looked at has been so sweet. Here’s a sample devotion from page 9:
God Knows Your Name
“I have called you by name, and you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1
Long ago, shepherd boys cared for big flocks of sheep. It was their job to take the sheep to pastures where they could eat. Every morning, the shepherds called their sheep by name. “Hurry up, Dexter. Get a move on, Sadie. Good boy, Alexander.” There were so many names to remember, but the shepherds knew them all.
God cares for people like a good shepherd. He knows the names of everyone on earth. Can you imagine knowing everybody’s name? And God never forgets a name. He made everyone, and He knows exactly who they are. When God looks down from heaven and sees you, He doesn’t say, “Look at that kids over there.” He calls you by name.
Count how many times you hear your name today. Whenever you hear it, remember that God knows your name and He loves you.

About the Book
Spend an entire year of discovering God’s blessings, and develop a lifetime of gratitude.
God loves everyone, and one way He shows His love is through showering us with blessings! Whether it’s with parents who love us, warm sunshine, or the ultimate blessing of His Son, Jesus, God’s love is everywhere. When kids see that God is the source of all blessings, it reminds them that all gifts truly do come from God.
Children will learn to not only see God’s blessings in happy days, but to see His loving hand in hard days as well. Developing a habit of giving thanks in all circumstances will lead children to a lifelong spirit of gratitude.
