When John and I were raising our sons, we discovered that there weren’t any devotionals that we could use for little ones. There were Keys for Kids, but they were for ages over 5 or so. A friend of ours just had his second daughter and asked me if I knew of any devotionals for young children. I researched quite a bit and never did find anything he could use. That’s when the Lord impressed upon my heart to start the “Mini-Manna for Little Lambs” series.

I began working on this series of devotionals that parents could use with their “little lambs” up through toddler years a year or so ago. I got as far as Day 16 and ran out of ideas. Maybe the blogging world can give me fresh ideas to finish the series. 🙂 You can pull Days 1-20  here.

If you have any ideas for topics you would like to teach your baby/toddler, please leave a comment and I will be sure to write a devotional on that topic for your use! 🙂

  1. Here are some ideas I came up with. Don’t know if they will work or not…

    Who is God?
    Temper Tantrums
    Eating healthy foods
    personal grooming (bath, brush teeth…etc)
    right and wrong??

    Don’t know how good these are. I will try to think of more.


  2. Thank you, Sherry! 🙂 I will put those to use!

  3. what about…. who is Jesus?

    What is Heaven?

    How to act in Church??

  4. Oh these are EXCELLENT suggestions!!! 🙂 I have my work cut out for me! Good job, lady!!

  5. If you credit me, I have absolutely no problem with you borrowing photos – just let me know when you borrow them so I can see them (I will add you to my bloglines but you never know when you will miss something – I seem to do it regularly (miss something that is))

    After years of looking and by the time my oldest was perhaps a bit too old for it I found a wonderful book called My ABC Bible Verses by Susan Hunt – it still too old for an eighteen month or younger but a child who is read to often and has good comprehension can begin to understand it by age two. Perhaps it would give you some ideas.

    My Mom just gave us a subscription to Keys for Kids and I read it to my girls when the oldest comes home from school.

    I could go on about how important what you are doing is but I won’t. I know it is good to read the stories to them and talk to them about the Bible from itty-bitty because their comprehension grows in layers and I am told over and over by teachers how much my oldest knows about the Bible and Faith and I know it is only because I read it to her and made her memorize it – it certainly isn’t because of who I am or how good I teach – I fail dismally at those things. It is simply the faithful desire to have it in front of her at all times so that when God speaks she is able to listen.

  6. This is so true, Melissa! Thank you for the permission to use your photos. I will definitely credit you and let you know when I use one 🙂
