DEVOTIONALS FOR TEENS / OLDER CHILDREN / ADULTS

My Utmost for His Highest  Oswald Chambers: daily devotional – excellent, challenging, thought provoking for older children and adults.

[It always makes me think – with a smile – of Bishop Odo ‘comforting’ the reluctant troops… with a big stick :)  in the Bayeux Tapestry (see ‘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 this every day. She was the most Godly person I’ve ever known.]

Streams in the Desert  by Mrs LB Cowman / Mrs Charles E. Cowman: daily devotional – excellent, comforting, a gentle arm around the shoulder for tough times for older children and adults.

[another classic my mentor used – and that is how she treated others. The cattle prod for herself. The comforting arm for others… wow, I still miss her! ;(  ]
