Printable family devotions that inspire spiritual conversations.
In the book of Matthew, Jesus shows with His actions and tells with His words that He’s the true King over everything! He’s the Rescuer sent by God! He’s actually God Himself! And in this study, families learn what life is like with Him as the King.
Each journal page corresponds with one chapter and includes two kid-friendly prompts such as History Tidbits and Fun Facts for conversation starters. The dedicated space Favorite Words, This Story Inspired Me, and more gives families a place to process thoughts and feelings by writing or drawing while encouraging independent reading for teens.
The Book Summary offers the setting and theme to paint the overall picture of Matthew. Also included is Big Questions Simple Answers, where parents and kids alike learn where Matthew fits into God's love story, the history of Isreal and the early church, why there are four gospels, and more!

I see there are two purchase options. Which one should I choose?
The group license permits churches to duplicate, and the individual license is for families.
I see there is a suggested Reading Plan. Is it dated?
No. We choose an undated reading plan because every family's schedule is different. They can choose to work through Matthew as it best fits their schedule. Is it dinner each night? Weekends?
Is Matthew for children or teenagers?
Both! This material is for all ages.
