Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science

Indescribable: 100 (Super Cool) Devotions for Kids

Wouldn’t it be nice to find a really great devotional for kids that spoke to them at their level, and related everything they know about God to everything they know about science in a fun and engaging way?

Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science

FOUND IT!

(Read on to learn more, and you’ll have an opportunity to win one for yourself, too! )

I was recently given the opportunity to check out this new book, Indescribable: 100 Devotions About God & Science, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed. I love it, and the real audience (my crazy, geeky, science-loving boys) loves it even MORE. It has been such a blessing for us ever since it landed on our doorstep, and I want to share it with you so you can be blessed by it, too!

We’ve been reading it every night, and you know it’s good because they aren’t satisfied with just reading one devotional; we have to read and discuss at least 5, and they are always so bummed when it’s time to put the book down and go to bed!

Indescribable

First of all, it’s gorgeous — beautifully illustrated with bright colors, so eye-catching it is irresistible. Who wouldn’t want to open this book, it begs to be opened!

It’s even better on the inside. Each devotional is two pages, featuring scripture and a science topic that ties to that bit of scripture perfectly……

… filled with interesting facts and how it all relates to God and the reader. It ends with a lovely prayer to tie it all together.

Our favorite part is the “Be Amazed” section — from which I get a lot of “WHAT?!?” and “No Way!” responses when I read!

The author, Pastor Louie Giglio, invites kids to think about the questions they encounter in day-to-day life and to find God’s glory in creation.

Some of the topics covered:

  • Creation
  • Evolution
  • Animals
  • Dinosaurs
  • Space and the universe
  • Molecules and tiny matter
  • Medical science and medical miracles
  • Our amazing bodies
  • Geology and fossils
  • Weather and the atmosphere

This devotional is unique, engaging (so fun!), and beautifully designed — a must-have for any Christian family, and it would be a great addition to any Christian elementary school classroom, as well!

Indescribable on Amazon It is already a #1 Best Seller in Children’s Christian Prayer Books

From the publisher:

It’s impossible to out-imagine God. He orchestrates time, creates light, and speaks things into existence—from the largest stars to the smallest starfish. God is a powerful, purposeful, personal, unparalleled Creator. Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens tell the glory of God. And the skies announce what his hands have made.” Indescribable displays the majesty of creation with scientific findings, photography, and original illustrations.

Hope you enjoy as much as we do — it’s brilliant.

Blessings & Happy Holidays!

Children's Art Gallery

Children’s Art Gallery

Children's Art GalleryYour child brings home an amazing work of art, so of course you need to hang it up — put it on display for everyone to ooooh and ahhhh at, and to show everyone how proud you are of your little Picasso (and it gives your little ones all the feels). So on the fridge it goes…. but really, your little artiste deserves so much more! So why not create a gallery just for the kiddos?

This is a super simple project for even the not-so-handy, and of course you can personalize or change it up however you want — I’m just giving you the basic idea to get started if you want to make your own.

I chose a wall in the kids’ playroom to do this, where I had the space and where the pieces of art would fit right in with the “decor.”

I found a banner that was double sided, with some funky colors and patterns on one side, and a chalkboard surface on the other. It came with some great twine, but you can always find your own in any color. Children's Art Gallery

You could also make your own bunting using scrapbook paper, use or not use the chalk feature, purchase or print letters on your own, etc. The sky is the limit on this one. Children's Art GalleryI wrote “A”, “R”, and “T” out on the three of the pennants, and strung the twine through the holes. (If you’re using scrapbook paper, you’ll need a hole punch).Children's Art Gallery

To hang up the banner I just used push pins. 🙂pushpins

For the artwork hangers, I found a bag of these cool chalkboard clothespins and decided to take the extra pennants from the banner I wasn’t using and cut out a shape to stick them to. clothespins3

I used my good old standby, the sticky dots. Children's Art Gallery

On the back of that stack I used a mounting square and stuck it to the wall. They come off easily, and leave no marks. 😉 wallmounts3

Cute, right?Children's Art Gallery

My son’s Montessori school does the most beautiful art projects and he is always SO excited to bring a new one home and hang it up in the gallery. When it’s time to retire one, I take a picture of it with my phone and upload it to artkive — this great app that lets you create hardcover books of your kid’s artwork!

Do you have an art gallery or wall for your kiddo’s masterpieces? I would love for you to share them with me!

Until next time!
