Book Review~Whit's End Mealtime Devotions-The Second Helping

It's almost the New Year, a great time to start a new family devotional!  Back in April, I reviewed Whit's End Mealtime Devotions.  You can read that review here.  It was a great devotional to do with our kids and as a family. 

Now, there is a new edition-Whit's End Mealtime Devotions-The Second Helping.  This book is written by John Avery Whittaker, and comes from Focus on the Family's Adventures in Odyssey series, a wonderful resource for families who are wanting to teach their children Bible fundamentals.  The Second Helping has 90 devotions-you could do one a day over 90 days, or spread them out to last longer. Of course there is lots of scripture verses in each devotion.  Each devotion includes:
*Mealtime Prayer-a fresh way to bless your food
*Appetizer-a fun question or activity
*Main Course-an object lesson or thought to chew on
*Table Talk-questions to spark interesting discussions
*Vitamins and Minerals-a creative way to thank God for your time together or a reminder that God provides all we need

My family loves Mealtime Devotions-The Second Helping!  It is short and sweet, but packed with knowledge!  There are great questions and activities to spark discussions among the family.  The entire family, from age 11 to 46, learns and enjoys with these devotions.  We have not been using the book every day, but try for two to three times a week.   My youngest son, age 11, enjoys the Appetizer activities the most. 

If you'd like to check out the first chapter of the book, you can download it at http://goo.gl/XUVHBs.  For more information and to purchase your own copy, visit the Tyndale House product page.

*Disclosure: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
