Memory verses and devotions that will write God’s word on your children’s hearts.
In this 52-week devotional for children, author Holly Hawkins Shivers adapts the gift book The Joshua Code (written by her father, O.S. Hawkins) into a devotional that will help kids learn and live the scriptures. Using kid-friendly language, I Can Learn the Bible teaches scriptures in a way children can understand. Each week, kids will commit a new scripture to memory by reading a fun, engaging devotional that’s doable for a child. Matthew 7:7 will remind kids to always ask God for help. Philippians 1:6 will teach them that God is always working in their lives. And 50 more scriptures will continue to write the truth on their hearts so that they will remember it forever.
Parents using the gift book will love using the kids’ book as a discussion tool for the entire family. A great gift for baptisms, confirmations, and any special occasion, I Can Learn the Bible includes clever tips for memorizing scripture. Each new day and each new verse will reinforce to young readers that:
“God’s Word is FOR ME and TO ME, it is IN ME and working THROUGH ME, and just like His love, it goes on and on forever!”

Although this book is recommended for ages 4-8, any form of Scripture is beneficial for all ages. This book does have simple terms of defining truths, but for my 12 year old son, sometimes simpler is better. Because of my son’s age, instead of spending a week on one devotion we do it in one day. Every day we review all of the Bible Scriptures and will do so until we get to 52. I am hoping by then, he and I both, will have many to most of them memorized. We are making it work well for our family.
The illustrations included are beautiful also. Each one is precious and lovely.
My only critique with this book, is that I wish all of the Bible verses that are included were NKJV or other, and not the International Children’s Bible©. Instead of the more commonly known, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” sky is substituted for heavens. I think for down the road when he is older, the more common versions would be more beneficial, but that is just my opinion. Otherwise, a beautifully made and wonderfully sound book.
