As a Christian author, I reluctantly have to admit that I sometimes break the 10th commandment, which is… thou shalt not covet.
But how can I not think, as I pick up Vanessa Myer’s new book… I wish I’d written this?
This lovely new family devotional is based on the simple premise that just as Jesus shared breakfast with his disciples, he also wants to share breakfast with you!
In her introduction, Vanessa Myers describes Breakfast with Jesus like this…
In this 100-day devotional, you will be hanging out with Jesus each morning and learning more about Him. Each devotion comes from one of the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.) As you read each devotion, pretend like you are one of the disciples and Jesus is teaching you… much like he did that morning on the beach with them. And make sure to grab some breakfast and eat with Jesus as you spend time with Him.
Along with each day’s story, Vanessa also offers a Scripture verse, prayer, and a ‘Follow Me’ activity. As an added bonus, you’ll also find breakfast recipes scattered throughout the book.
I love this review of the book by nine year-old, Nolen Atcheson:
Reading these devotions helps me to think about Jesus each morning and reading it in the morning helps me to remember to show Jesus to others each day.
What a precious endorsement of this new devotional that reaches into little minds and hearts and encourages them to be the hands, voice, and feet of Jesus in the world.
