My Review:
We always have supper together. It is a good way to stay connected to our children and whats going on with them. We have each others undivided attention. And we think it makes our children feel very special too which is always a bonus. Whit's Mealtime Devotions is a way for not only Adventures in Odyssey fans to enjoy devotions but anyone with children or grand children to enjoy a great devotional time with them.

 Each devotion has a prayer, appetizer, a main course, some table talk, and some vitamins and minerals(Bible verse). The Table Talk portion is basically a question/answer section to get some dialogue going with your children and hopefully they will learn alot more about the Bible and from the Bible. The main course is included and helps us get in some reading from the Bible.

 The authors of this book have made a very short and sweet but well rounded devotional for children that both young and old can enjoy together as a family.
