I love that they are short and are to the point! With ten children and several little ones, this would make a great addition to our day!

I must agree!!!

976825: Adventures in Odyssey® 90 Devotions for Kids Adventures in Odyssey® 90 Devotions for KidsBy Tyndale HouseWritten by the Adventures in Odyssey team, your family will spend 13 weeks doing 90 devotions that will help parents teach their kids about God’s Word and make the truths of the Bible accessible to their kids. Join Whit, Connie, Eugene and all of your AIO friends as you discover a new theme each week. Each week includes an overview to introduce the theme, seven devotions which reference AIO dramas, and an activity, puzzle, or game to reinforce the core biblical truths taught during that week. Recommended for ages 6-12.


Being a part of the Adventures in Odyssey A Call To Serve here on Unwrapping His Grace has been a blessing in so many ways! In fact, my son, Josh, finished up his twelve hours of service for the summer this weekend and is excited about getting them submitted to AIO before the end of July!

Josh and Michael serving at their station at our big Missions Fundraiser on Saturday! (Yes, we are working on spelling lemonade very soon…but they are all heart!)

I can’t wait to tell you all about the amazing way God took the dream of a young boy to raise his goal of $600 for International and North American Missions by Easter of 2014 and did some incredible things with it! When he shared his dream with his Bible Club at church it sparked a fire that turned into so much more than we ever dreamed it would in yesterday’s Yard Sale/Bake Sale/Lemonade Stand to raise money for Missions!!! Wow! All the glory to God!

I will share this amazing story of how little guys can do big things too by the Grace of God on Tuesday night! I hope you will join me.

And let’s all help our children to understand that they are NOT too young to step up and serve by serving with them as a family!

What are some ways your family is serving together this summer? We would love to hear about it in the comments below!!!

About the author

Mary Joy

I am a broken daughter of God and a work in progress. I am passionate about encouraging women to embrace God's grace and faithfulness as I discover and share His faithfulness, grace and even joy in the messiness of my journey as a widowed (less than 2 yrs), homeschooling mom with a missionary's heart. I am in awe of how God fills me up and carries me through each day. My Heavenly Father leads me as I continue to parent and home school my two recovering and very active boys and encourage my beautiful teenage step-daughter (long distance) during her first year in of college. In every moment I see incredible evidence of God's healing love, grace and faithfulness. I am so blessed to be the creator, manager, and an author of Unwrapping His Grace as I lean on my Savior to lead us in this special web-ministry.
