bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A great family devotion for LentDecember 23, 2019bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This book is a great devotional for the Lenten season. Ciuciu has written 40 devotions that emphasize how Jesus loved people in Bible times and how He loves us now. The book is designed to help us show that same love to others.
Each devotion has a story about Jesus to read, challenges to apply what was learned, a prayer and Scripture references for additional study. An added feature is a once a week family celebration. There are suggested activities each week, from crafts to service projects.
I really like this Lenten devotional. Ciuciu has a way of making the stories of Jesus' encounters with others really come alive. I also like her emphasis of sharing God's love with others. "We cannot claim to have experienced Jesus' love and remain indifferent to those suffering around us ..." (Loc 144/1743) I also like the weekly family sessions. There are good activities suggested to help children understand the love of Jesus and possible ways of giving that same love to others. Ciuciu will have resources on her website, such as printable activity sheets, when the book is released.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
