About the Book: “This year, learn to listen for the voice of the One who loves you most.” We know for sure that God speaks to His people. Throughout the pages of Scripture, time after time, He guides, instructs, corrects, inspires, encourages, and reveals. Inspired writers even call Him “the Word.” He has always been vocal, and He always will be.But what does He say to “you”? How does He say it? How can you know when you’ve heard Him? In “The One Year Hearing His Voice Devotional,” Chris Tiegreen will help you discover patterns and practices you can adopt to hear God better. Listening to God is a process, a journey, and an adventure. He promises that those who seek Him will be rewarded with His presence and His voice. And the words of the living God are powerful and life-changing.”
Phone Tree Review: The One Year Hearing His Voice Devotional by Chris Tiegreen was a comprehensive collection of Scripture, Biblical history, personal thoughts/insight and prayers.
Written in such a way as to invite the reader to focus his or her attention on God and His Triune being and influence, the devotional did indeed promote intimacy and invite reflection.
I appreciated that the author’s words caused me to think deeply and to slow down and consider my faith walk, as well as my relationship with the LORD.
I have elected to use this devotional as my personal OneWord devotional for the remainder of this year and into the next. I found that it ties in perfectly with my determined OneWord focus.

Other: I would love for this to be in a journal format. It would have been great to write out my thoughts post each devotional.
Title: Tell Me About Prayer
Author: Stephen Elkins
About the Book: “Train ‘Em Up is an interactive, fun-filled, and affordable series that uses a train locomotive theme for teaching kids core Christian beliefs and principles. In “Tell Me about Prayer, ” a friendly train conductor, Mr. Steve, teaches kids what prayer is all about, how we should talk to God, and why our conversations are so important to Him. Through bold graphics and interactive songs and stories, Train ‘Em Up makes it easy for parents and teachers to explain biblical concepts like prayer in a way that helps with attention, memorization, and recall while building a solid faith foundation. Each book in the series includes a CD with sing-along songs and narrated stories with sound effects, plus a colorful sticker sheet!”
Phone Tree Review: Tell Me About Prayer is a delightfully colorful and cute, kid-friendly book that introduces young children to the concept of prayer.
I really liked the layout and content of this book. I appreciated the easy to read format and the CD addition, as well as the Scriptural integrity. The use of the train-all aboard approach was playful and inviting, and I think kids will adore it.
