God’s Mighty Acts in Creation

God’s Mighty Acts in Creation
Written by Starr Meade

About the book

Nature reveals majestic truths about God—truths that help us know him better. God’s Mighty Acts in Creation helps children recognize those wonders, and what they tell us about their Creator.

As Starr Meade, author of Mighty Acts of God, guides young readers through the six days of creation, she points to how creation displays the wisdom and power of God. She also helps readers explore and apply other references to nature in the Bible by answering questions such as: What did Jesus mean when he claimed to be the true vine? How is all flesh like grass, and how should that affect the way we live? What was God revealing about himself when he made the sun stand still for Joshua? Each reading includes a key verse, stimulating questions, and engaging activities, all geared toward elementary-aged children.

Whether parents use this book for family devotions or children read it for themselves, all will learn how God’s glory, wisdom, sovereignty, and power are revealed in all of creation. This is a companion volume to God’s Mighty Acts in Salvation.

My Thoughts

This book is interesting.   While going through the creation order, the author is writing little devotions for kids ages 8 to 12.    I know my kids will enjoy these little devotions and learn from it at the same time.

As homeschooler it is important for me to find devotions where you can learn something at the same time.   Mighty Acts of God in Creation is just like that.   The devotion starts with scriptures as well as a two pages telling you more about the subject mentioned in the title.    At the end of the devotion, a little section titled “As for me and my house…” will guide the child or your family into experiments or questions to help to understand what has been read.

From what I have read so far, I am pleased with this little book.   It will become a part of our homeschool in the new year.    There are 45 devotions in this book but it can be spread on a few months if you do two or three per week.

God’s Mighty Acts in Creation is available at your favourite bookstore, even
