Our Thoughts:

My 12 year old daughter fell in love with both the devotional and the journal the day they arrived at our doorstep. She has enjoyed reading each day in the The Plans I Have For You Devotional. She has also loved how creative she can be with the corresponding journal. She has been doing daily bible studies for a few years now, but this has helped her already in so many ways. For instance, she is now coming to me and telling me about bible stories she is learning about. In the past, I would find studies for her and we would go over them together. It's fun to see her learning about God's word and how he uses our unique traits for the good.

I'm excited for her to continue on through the devotional. It's also nice to know that I can purchase more journals for her two sisters. I know that it is something they will also enjoy and benefit from as well.

About author Amy Parker:

Amy Parker has sold more than thirty books for children, teens, and adults. She has also collaborated with authors ranging from New York Times bestsellers to her very own son. Two of these collaborations are recipients of Christian retailing's Best Awards, and she has also won three Mom's Choice Awards. But Amy's greatest reward is being a wife to Daniel and a mom to their amazing sons, Michael and Ethan.

About illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton:

Vanessa Brantley-Newton is a self-taught illustrator, doll maker, and crafter. Her passion for children's books began when she came across The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats as a child in the 1960s. Growing up in a musical family who love to sing, Vanessa's illustrations are as fun and whimsical as a beautiful melody. Vanessa currently makes her nest in Charlotte, NC with her husband of 20 years, their daughter, and a very rambunctious cat named Stripes.
