Hi everyone! I’ve had several requests to do a review of the Word of Life Devotions that we started using last year. I really like these devotions, they’re fairly short and easy for my kids to complete. And their a great way to get them in the habit of getting into God’s Word on a daily basis. They did update their covers from the ones I have, but the Quiet Time Devotions are what we used.
I want to mention that these devotions are not super in depth studies, they only take about 10-15 minutes each day to complete. Each day they have a reading assignment which is shorter for younger students and then longer for older students. The reading assignment is followed up by a few questions that relate directly to the chapters themselves. Then there are always a couple of follow up questions that relate the reading to your students everyday life. Then they end with a short time praying over what they’ve learned that day.
I don’t think they recommend a certain Bible version to use, we have a few that we use and if they have any troubles relating their version to the WOL questions then I will usually help them out. We mostly use the NIV version for our kids, but another favorite is the NIRV Discoverer’s Bible for Young Readers. I think they’re just a little bit easier for them to read through.
I hope this video review helped you out, feel free to email me if you have any questions you can also post a question on the COAH Community to see what others are using as well!
