During a school year, a student’s calendar is filled with term papers, homework, football games, play rehearsals, band concerts, and so much more. It’s easy to get caught up in all the activity and forget to take a deep breath.
Make it Count: 180 Devotions for the School Year is a unique devotional that provides students with encouragement needed for each day, as they count down the 180 days until the end of their school year. Each devotion features a short inspirational thought or quotation, as well as a brief prayer that will help students focus on their daily faith walk.
You can read the first chapter here.
This is a wonderful resource for students and teachers alike. I will be incorporating it into my 2012-13 homeschooling curriculum for my children. I love how the days count down from 180 to 1 and it’s an easy way for kids to know how many days of school are left to finish.
Each devotion is a half page long and then there is a Bible Scripture at the bottom to meditate on also. I appreciate that there is less reading and more time for thinking. Probing questions or thoughts to ponder are included and then an opportunity for discussion is encouraged.
This would make a great back-to-school gift for that special student in your life and it is the perfect size for a book bag or purse. This is a great way to redirect kids from all the distractions that school holds and take even a few precious moments to reflect daily on what is truly important… connecting with God and making each day count.
