Family Mealtime Rescue! Book Review and Giveaway.

Today we are sharing a great way to get more from your family dinner time with John Avery Whittaker's Whit's Ends Meal time devotions.

Title: Adventures in Odyssey: Whit's End Mealtime devotions from John Avery Whittaker
Authors: Crystal Bowman and Trisha Goyer.
Format: Paperback 112 pages
Published: March, 2013 Tyndale House

If you are not familiar with fictional Adventures in Odyssey Radio Series, John Avery Whittaker is the owner of Whit's End Ice cream shop in the town of Odyssey. Kids from all over town come to this friendly mentor for advice. In this title (with a little help from some great authors) Mr Whittaker offers kids and their families over 90 Menus for five course Meal time devotions. Each one contains:
  • A Mealtime prayer.
  • A Fun activity as an Appetizer.
  • The Main Course is a lesson or thought to ponder followed by Table Talk discussions
  • Finally Vitamins and Minerals give you a way to creatively thank God.
You aren't limited to using these just at home either! The guide is small enough to take on picnics, to the yoghurt shop or wherever you happen to be eating.

This will definitely be a great way to get our family dinners back on track. The activities and lessons are fun and entertaining. Kids five and older would likely get the most out of this book but younger children would have no problem joining in too! I really liked the inclusion of the different devotions for extra special days of the year such as Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Birthdays. 

We are excited to be able to able to share this with another family with our first Giveaway!
