God’s Mighty Acts in Creation, by Starr Meade
God’s Mighty Acts in Creation, is written by Starr Meade who guides children in exploring the six days of creation as they learn more about their heavenly Father and learn to see Him in the world around them. Written for ages 8-12, this book would be suitable as a devotional to be read to children of any age – I greatly enjoyed it myself! It is an excellent book for every family to own and learn from.
The book consists of forty-five short chapters, each containing a Scripture passage and application questions, and is divided into the six days of creation. I love how the author didn’t just simply stop there, rather, she uses these six days as a springboard from which to explore many passages taken from throughout the Bible, all tying in to that particular day while teaching who God is. For example, your children will discover ways we can serve and love the Lord, truths of His character and provision, ways we can bring Him glory through our lives, His sovereignty (and even creatively shows an example for each day of how God usurped the “normal” to show His power, such as how Daniel was kept safe from the lions when he was cast into the den), and the message of salvation.
I appreciated the author’s obvious heart for children and her concern in teaching them solid truths of God and His Word. She uses descriptive imagery to capture the reader’s attention as she shares her love of the gospel with them through the words she thoughtfully penned.
