Review: AIO Whit's End Mealtime Devotions...The Second Helping

Whit's End Mealtime Devotions: The Second Helping
About the Book:
Many families today are on the go so much that it's hard to get everyone around the dinner table long enough to share a meal, let alone hold a meaningful conversation. Parents looking for help with conversation starters and ways to build strong relationships with their children will want to incorporate this devotional into their family's routine.Adventures in Odyssey delivers readings in this second volume of "Whit's End Mealtime Moments" designed to grab a family's interest and get them interacting in lively, often hilarious, conversation. Dealing with both unusual and everyday topics in a creative and fun way, this devotional helps parents engage their children in meaningful conversation and pass on a spiritual heritage to their families.

My Review:
 Following along the same lines as the first AIO mealtime devotions book,  AIO Whit's End Mealtime Devotions...The Second Helping is just as interesting and calorie laden as the first time around. The second book in the series takes off where the first left us. For a refresher on the first follow this link.

With each mealtime devotion there is:
A Prayer- to begin our meal and set the right tone
An Appetizer- an activity or thoughts related to the Bible story
Main Course - a summarized Bible story that the devotion focuses on
Table Talk- questions and thoughts related to the story for discussion purposes
Vitamins and Minerals- Bible verse related to story

Mealtime around the table is starting to become a thing of the past. But I know our family indulge every night to teach our children it doesn't have to be that way. I love the aspect of these type of devotion books but I think the favorite thing that I like the most is the prayer that begins each one. We say "blessing" before our meal but sometimes we have a hard time coming up with a prayer so the book gives us alot of good ideas and prayers that help with that situation. God should be an important component in our everyday lives. This book helps us add Him to our mealtime as well.
