We LOVE devotional books in our home. It’s almost like we collect them at this point, but you can never have too many books that point you to God right? So, when I got the opportunity to review Louie Giglio’s followup to his best-selling devotional, Indescribable, I jumped for joy at the chance.
How Great Is Our God has 100 devotions about God and science and how they are related because, well, God created science!
Throughout How Great Is Our God, Giglio covers topics like space, time, earth, weather, the human body, animals and plants.
How Great is our God is geared to peak the curiosity of 6-10 year olds, but our daughter, Kerrington, is just about four and half and has really enjoyed looking and reading through much of the book. She likes to ask me to find certain topics like volcanoes, the moon, and dolphins, and then we read about them and she is pointed back to our Creator.
Kerrington, attends a classical Christian school, where she attends a traditional school setting 2 days a week, and the other days are considered homeschool days. I was delighted to learn that Giglio’s first devotional, Indescribable, was just announced as 2019 Ultimate Homeschool Curriculum Winner. This is important to me, as a mama, because I find value in believing that our children’s walk with the Lord can be related to their education.
Science is often separated from God. I’ve never understood that. You hear that a lot of true scientists don’t believe that God is their creator, and Jesus is their Savior. I’m not saying all scientists, but a lot have worldly beliefs.
But, How Great Is Our God allows us as parents to shepherd our children’s heart to the truth, which is God created the heavens and earth, He created our bodies and the way they work. He created the weather, outer space, and even ice caves. How Great Is Our God teaches them about each of these from a biblical and truthful point of view!
Each of the 100 devotionals has colorful and engaging illustrations, a key scripture, and a few paragraphs of educational content. Then there is a simple prayer included about the topic covered in that day’s devotional, as well as a “How Great” version of “did you know” that gives some fun facts related to the topic.
With little ones we want to teach them that spending time with Lord is important and worth it, but they also have to learn how to lengthen their attention span. Devotionals are a great place to start to expose them to Truth, but engage them with colorful imagery as well as content that is to the point and not lengthy!
How Great Is Our God is the perfect place to cultivate curiosity in God’s Word as well as their world around them, and how they are truly connected.
