 We received The Plans I Have For You to review. My kids are nine and eleven and they go to Catholic school. I sat down and began this devotional with the two of them. We immediately jumped into a discussion about what kind of plans God might have for all of us. My kids said they believe God's plans for me was to be a good father to them. This made me smile and we discussed what plans God may have for both of them in the future. I don't know if this set of books was made for individual use, but my kids actually like to sit down and go through it with me. The journal book has plenty of room for your kids to draw and write, which my nine year old daughter loves. It's fantastic to teach your kids that God has a plan for each of them.
Here's your chance to win a copy of this book for you and your children
