“The Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions” by Tim Shoemaker

This family devotion is absolutely crazy! (in all the best ways!) Seriously, let me tell you, only a dad could think of some of these things! But that is what is genius about these devotions. They are crazy, messy, dangerous, and fun! They definitely make the lesson stick.

Now, if you think this is going to be a quiet devotional that you just read and move on with, you are not going to like this book. These lessons require preparation, they require planning, and they require participation. You may not even be able to do them in your house!

However, it is ok! These devotions are meant to be done weekly, not daily, so it’s ok! There is plenty of time to plan!

The best part? All the planning and preparation pays off! The lessons are hands-on and are very good at representing the main points. Throughout the week, these devotions provide plenty of opportunity for additional discussions. After all, who doesn’t want to continue a discussion about making a slip-and-slide, or use a leaf blower to unroll toilet paper?! Many family moments will be made doing these activities!

Aside from the activities, the book offers helps and explanations for parents. These helps guide the parent through what to discuss with their kids and how to further the lesson.

This book is great for the parent who may not be as creative as other parents but wants to engage with their children. The activities are clearly lined out and the lessons are easy to understand. These lessons do require significant preparation, so if you are short on time, this book is not for you. However, for those wanting an engaging devotion that is hands-on and memorable, this is the book for you!
