every story whispers his name…
It’s an adventure story about a young Hero who comes from a far country to win back his lost treasure. It’s a love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne—everything—to rescue the one he loves. It’s like the most wonderful of fairy tales that has come true in real life! You see, the best thing about this Story is—it’s true. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby. The Child upon whom everything would depend.
All the stars and mountains and the oceans and galaxies and everything were nothing compared to how much God loved his children. He would move heaven and earth to be near them. Always. Whatever happened, whatever it cost him, he would always love them. And so it was that the wonderful love story began …

My girls and I are currently use this in our homeschool as our daily devotion. We enjoy the short chapters that take about 5 minutes to read. I love that it gives the Bible reference that it covers so you can read more or study more on the subject of that day.
The “story” format makes reading about the people in the Bible more interesting as well as easy to understand. All of it together works together to show the whole picture of God’s love for his people and what he has done throughout the generations to make a way for His people.
It’s a unique way to get scripture into your teens daily life.
