I Am Devotional by Diane Stortz

I love everything about this devotional book! Diane Stortz, author, and Diane Le Feyer, illustrator, have put together a gem to be used by multigenerations for years to come. I AM Devotional: 100 Devotions About the Names of God is a book I look forward to reading with my children.

To begin with, the cover is vibrant—it glitters! The book discusses more than 100 names for God with multiple devotions written about each name. This 200+ page hardcover book is not only a devotional book—it doubles as a Bible study guide.

Each devotion spans two pages. Each begins with the name of God being addressed, a title for the devotion, and a Bible verse. What I found especially enriching is that many of the devotions begin with an inspiring anecdote about a real young person making a difference. Often a famous person the readers would be familiar with.

At the end of the devotions come, in my opinion, the best part. Each devotion ends with a prayer that parents can pray aloud with their children, and then a couple of discussion questions are offered. Following that is a GO DEEPER section with a question relating to the devotion. For example: “What does Jesus say about peace in John 14:27?” The GO DEEPER sections encourage further study. In addition, in the midst of many of the devotions, Stortz mentions that more information can be found in such and such a verse, again encouraging further study.

Each page is vibrantly and captivatingly illustrated. I highly recommend this book!

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze®. I was not required to write a positive review.
