Our family love Awesome Cutlery! We discovered this Christian musical duo early last year and have really enjoyed singing along to their songs on YouTube. We were delighted to hear they’ve produced a family devotional and started using it in November 2020.
There are 24 devotionals, each linked to a song from their album All Together Now. Its best to have the CD handy, or you can also listen to it on YouTube which worked really well for us.
Each devotional has a different set of elements like prayers, fun activities, questions, a challenge and even a three-legged walk! Prayers are simple and easy to understand which is what you want for young children. There are also funny comments and explanations from Captain Awesome and Cutlery Boy that kids will find hilarious!
The Bible verses for each day are connected to the song. The questions are easy for children to understand and help them connect Biblical truths from the song and readings. We found this to be a really helpful way to engage our children in learning more about God and His amazing love for us. Singing Biblical truths is a great way to let the word of God take root in your heart.
Family life at the best of times is busy! These short, fun devotionals have been a great resource for us as we’ve spent time thinking about God’s word and singing His praises.
If you’re new to family devotionals, this is a good introduction to studying God’s word together in a fun and engaging way with children. In our experience, these devotionals would work best with under-10’s.
If you’re looking for a resource to help your family read the Bible together then I would warmly recommend this to you.
