Devotions written as if Jesus is speaking directly to a child's heart.

Based on her original Jesus Calling, this version has been adapted in a language and fashion that kids and tweens can relate to their everyday lives. 

After many years of writing in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to listen to God with pen in hand, writing down what she believed He was saying to her through Scripture. Others were blessed as she shared her writings, until people all over the world were using her devotionals.  They are written from Jesus’ point of view, thus the title Jesus Calling.  It is Sarah’s fervent prayer that our Savior may bless readers, and now young readers, with His presence and His peace in ever deeper measure.

Meets national education standards.

At first I was a little hesitant to read this book. Daily devotionals, told in the first person voice of Jesus, even if written by a woman who had been a missionary, didn't really appeal to me. I was also concerned about how far from the biblical message it would stray.I ended up with an audiobook version of this anyway, so I decided to give it a try. I found the devotions to be very well done, built from the Scriptures themselves, and providing the Scripture references after each day. Hearing it in audiobook was also a great way to read the book.As an audiobook, I didn't do this over an entire year, but I did take 3 months to go through it. The contents aren't a deep theological study, but a personal and clear reminder of the basics of our relationship with Christ. I found it a good addition to my day and a helpful reminder of important truths.read more

Written in the voice of Jesus, I did not think I would like this one bit. As a rule, I'm not overly fond of devotionals, but I am enjoying this one tremendously. Each day I find a tidbit to chew on or encourage me throughout the day. I am not finished reading this yet, but I intend to continue, possibly for years.read more

Unlike many devotionals I have read, I actually desire to read this every morning. I look forward to reminding myself of God's peace and love every day because so much of my life has been rooted in fear. I love that it has scriptures to back up what Sarah hears Jesus saying to her, so I don't do much wondering if it's the truth.read more

Sarah Young has recorded words of comfort from our Lord Jesus given to her during her quiet time with Him. She has taken these words and formatted them into a daily devotional book, spread out over 365 days. Each day is complete with scripture references. I have the leather bound deluxe edition which feels like a treasure in my hands.For the purpose of this review, I read the book through in its entirety. I am so comforted after reading this book to have confirmation that what I have believed is the voice of our Lord speaking to my heart, is indeed true. Jesus has such a wonderfully gentle and loving way of speaking, and Sarah Young has captured His essence in this book. I felt His presence while experiencing His words from one page to the next. I found myself receiving revelation knowledge as I read, and my interest was sparked to pursue further study on different Bible topics. I highly recommend this daily devotional to anyone who desires to know our Lord Jesus more intimately.read more

I enjoyed this little devotional book. It is written in the voice of Jesus which is a little annoying so it was not my cup of tea. I could not help but thinking that if the believer prays and meditates on the scriptures they too will recive their own interpretation of the scriptures directly from Jesus if they want it. If, however, they are not prone to pray in this manner then someone else's message from the Lord will have to do. Personally I prefer to get my messages directly from the Lord; that way as I know His message is specifically meant for me.read more
