Devotions with Grandsons

We were sharing a hotel room with two of our young grandsons. I decided to have devotions before our bedtime prayer.

I took out the Gideon Bible from the bedside table and began reading from the book of John.  I’d stop every 2-3 verses to answer questions or explain its meaning and then continue. We ended with prayer and a hug. Soon they were asleep.

The second night as they were putting on their pajamas the 7-year-old said, “Grandma, will you read to us again from the book of John?”

What music to my ears!

  • Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.      Proverbs 22:6
  •  Teach them [God’s Words] to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 11:19

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.

    We have been commanded to “Fear Not”…how many times in the Bible has it been said to fear not???…a quick google search gave me the answer and surprised me immediately…

    Your friend & brother in Christ Jesus Our Lord,

      I did as you suggested and discovered “fear not” is in the Bible 365 times! In other words, We are to fear not every day of the year! Thank you for your encouragement Nicholas. I’m pleased you are able to share my stories with others.
