A Book Review: Whit's End Mealtime Devotions

The good folks at Tyndale House Publishers sent me a free copy of Whit's End Mealtime Devotions to review.  I was especially excited about this opportunity because we fan's of Adventure's In Odyssey and we have experimented in mealtime devotions for the last month or two...with mixed success.  With four little boys at the table...this momma is always looking for ways to steer the conversation to things of God and away from the sounds your body can produce.  {snicker}

Each devotion is one page long...short enough to keep my little movers and shakers interested.  You'll find a mealtime prayer, an "appetizer" which includes questions to discuss, and then the "main course" where the verses are connected.  Each "mealtime devotion" is ended with a review and then "vitamins and minerals" which serves as a summary.  From start to finish, each devotion could take as little as 10 minutes...or longer if you encourage discussion. 

We enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to other families who are always looking for ways to keep their eyes on Jesus and avoid biological humor at the dinner table.  {grin}
