The illustrations by Diane Le Feyer are enough to shout about. They are just beautiful. Great colors, great art. You could frame these and put them on your walls, they are so pretty. I do love the cover a ton because it sparkles!

The format is telling the name of God (God All-Powerful/El Shaddai), then a verse. Followed by a paraphrased story from chapters in the Bible (El Shaddai is from Genesis 12-21) that's 2-4 pages long. I love the next part awesome - "What does it mean?" I love that it explains it, not in dumbed down language, but it explains it in a way that makes it easier to understand, to fit into our modern-day lives. It's excellent for children to read the Bible but even I don't understand much of it or how it applies to me, so I appreciate this portion in a devotion. The devotions end with a written prayer followed by "Learn More" and "What Happened Next?" segments that invite you to dig more and further along in the Bible.
Now, we haven't made it through this whole devotional together, but we will. Not every night. I'm still not that organized. However, my younger son ASKS me to read this to him. ASKS ME TO READ HIM A DEVOTIONAL! I think that's pretty impressive!
