Not sure what to send to your sponsored child? How about a devotional to inspire and encourage them to live Godly lives, following in the footsteps of Jesus. Send a whole page or just include a snippet. Make it a little more personal by including a few words of why you chose it for them or how it has impacted you. Here are some cool ideas to get you started…

DEVOTIONALS FOR TEENS / OLDER CHILDREN / ADULTS

My Utmost for His Highest  by Oswald Chambers. This daily devotional is for anyone who is serious about following Jesus. It’s excellent, challenging, and thought provoking for older children and adults. It always reminds me (with a smile) of the part of the Bayeux Tapestry where Bishop Odo supposedly ‘comforts’ the reluctant troops… with a big stick! (‘Bishop Odo, holding a stick, confortant the boys’.) My own mentor, who lived to the grand old age of 94 before heading off to party in Heaven, used to read her Bible along with ‘My Utmost for His Highest’ every day. She was the most Godly person I’ve ever known.

Streams in the Desert  by Mrs LB Cowman / Mrs Charles E. Cowman. This daily devotional is excellent for older children and adults. A comforting, gentle arm around the shoulder for tough times. This is another classic my beloved mentor used – and that is how she treated others. The cattle prod for herself. The comforting arm for others… wow, I still miss her! ;(

365 Promises  one Bible verse a day, with or without photos; print them off for the whole year, for the month, or just one day. The current ‘daily promise’ also has a brief devotional thought that you could share with your child. They also have:

King’s Highway  include an encouraging snippet of Godly inspiration and insight from Nancy Missler. If you or your child are going through a rough time, you will find comfort and wisdom here.
