Ezra and Elijah are at that tender age where they’re starting to ask questions about Jesus and God. They’re also at that age where it would be completely believable for them to ask a question about Jesus, hear the answer, and immediately start discussing mighty machines or dinosaurs or trains. Because their attention spans are….squirly, it can be a challenge to find devotions for toddlers. They need short and simple.
In our ladies Bible study at church last week I was convicted to be more intentional to teach my sons who God is. Of course they’re two and three, and not quite ready for deep theological discussions (although they both enjoy Big Thoughts for Little Thinkers [affiliate link], which actually has some great theology). But teaching them who God is and what He has done for us is weighty on my heart.
I put together a little devotions for toddlers calendar because I needed it. In November we’re focusing on Thanksgiving. The topics are very basic, and the reading is just one Scripture verse.
Week One: Who do we give thanks to?
Week Two: Who gives thanks to God?
Week Three: Why do we give thanks to God?
Week Four: How do we give thanks to God?
There’s also a short Bible verse to memorize over the whole month. I’m so looking froward to doing this with my boys and I wanted to share. You can download November’s devotions for toddlers by clicking here.
