Long Story Short
My son is a very slow eater. He can sometimes spend over an hour eating breakfast. So I decided to start doing devos with my son during our breakfast time together. We have been going through this devo book called Long Story Short for the past 2 months. I really like it because it goes through different aspects of each Bible story over the course of 5 days, connecting each story to Jesus and something from the Psalms/Proverbs/Prophets. So far, we've gone through Adam & Eve, Cain & Abel, Noah and the Ark, Tower of Babel, and Abram/Abraham. Through these stories, he has learned the names of Jesus from Isaiah 9:6 "Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace." He learned that we will worship God with one voice in Heaven. He learned that to 'delight' in God's Word means we to 'read it, enjoy it, and can't wait to read it again.' It's amazing how much he can retain. Now I don't mind that he eats slowly during breakfast because that just gives us more time to delight in God's Word together.
