I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.
“By this, all men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” John 13:35
My goal with raising my children is to show they love God by their actions to others. Bob Goff makes it easy to show love, always in the book Everybody, Always For Kids.
What It Is
We got a hardcover copy of the book and a five-day lesson plan of ways to bring the book into our daily lives. The book contains 40 chapters. Each chapter is a new story about how Bob brings love into what he does and shares personal stories about how these worked for him.
The five-day lesson plan picked out five of the stories and had different teaching points, questions to talk about, and ways to make this happen in your life.
How We Used It
There are different ways that you can use this book. You can just read it one story at a time and in order. You can read other stories that seem to fit what you are learning about or dealing with in life at the moment. You can follow the five-day lesson plan and build off of the ideas from there. You can have your kids read the stories, or you can read them aloud together as a family.
We decided to start with the five-day lesson plan. We followed the lesson steps in the lesson plan. We would ask a question first, read the story related to the lesson, ask questions as we were reading, and finish with an activity. After using the lesson plans, we used a similar style while reading the rest of the stories.
What We Thought
The book was a beautiful hardcover book with colorful pictures. The stories were fun to read aloud, and everyone enjoyed listening to me read them.
My kids loved listening to me read these stories and found it easy to relate to them. It was easy for us to find some new ways to show we are Christians by our actions every day. This book is a beautiful way to learn how to show love in your everyday actions, from being patient to seeing past things and into people’s hearts.
We will be reading these stories over and over again. They are a great reminder that loving everyone isn’t that hard at all.
There are other families who have had a chance to use this book in their homes also. Check out their reviews right here.
