Devotions to Make You Smarter focuses on the mental side of boys' natures, helping them to grow wiser, the way Jesus did as described in Luke 2:52. In the humorous and sometimes gross style that makes the 2:52 series so engaging and fun, this 90-day devotional guides boys in developing their minds. It explores many facets of the mental process, such as learning, making decisions, and thinking before acting and speaking. It also warns of the dangers of zoning out, being impulsive, and harboring a critical attitude. Combining important principles with practical messages, the book teaches lessons boys need to learn and helps them put this valuable knowledge into practice. Each devotion presents a Bible verse, explains it, and shows how it relates to boys' lives, then offers tools to help them cope with growing up, inspiring them to make choices that will ensure they grow up smart. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
