The Plans I have For You Devotional and Journal: GIVEAWAY!

If you have children, I can’t recommend this set of devotional materials enough! 

Although the Devotional is geared for 8-12 year olds, and the journal for 11-14 year olds, I believe the set could truly be used by anyone who can read. 

As I went through them, they spoke to my heart and I found myself itching to doodle my own thoughts in the journal.  The only reason I didn’t is because I want my son to be able to jump into them as soon as I finish with this review!

My mom, 75, read them and said the same thing.  “I really enjoyed these!  I think they would be good for any age.  They reminded me of so many things I needed to hear.”

They are both beautifully written, illustrated, and put together.  The Hardcover Devotional uses Bible stories to bring out important truths about God’s plan for each one of us.  It makes it plain that we are gifted for a purpose, and He longs for us to trust Him as we explore what that purpose is.

The softback Journal creatively illustrates the same key verses and gently invites us to reflect on them in a personal way.  It is SO inviting!  I love how the spaces for doodling, writing and drawing are scattered among the verses and illustrations.

Truly, this set will bless anyone who reads it!

If you would like to win your own set, please leave a comment below.  This set would make a wonderful gift for children and adults of any age!  I plan to get a few more sets so I can use one myself and give several as gifts!


Here is a bit about the author and illustrator:

About author Amy Parker:
Amy Parker has sold more than thirty books for children, teens, and adults.  She has also collaborated with authors ranging from New York Times bestsellers to her very own son.  Two of these collaborations are recipients of Christian retailing's Best Awards, and she has also won three Mom's Choice Awards.  But Amy's greatest reward is being a wife to Daniel and a mom to their amazing sons, Michael and Ethan.

About illustrator Vanessa Brantley-Newton:
Vanessa Brantley-Newton is a self-taught illustrator, doll maker, and crafter.  Her passion for children's books began when she came across The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats as a child in the 1960s.  Growing up in a musical family who love to sing, Vanessa's illustrations are as fun and whimsical as a beautiful melody.  Vanessa currently makes her nest in Charlotte, NC with her husband of 20 years, their daughter, and a very rambunctious cat named Stripes.
