Family of Faith Resource: ESV Family Devotional Bible

Finding a good family devotional Bible can be challenging. In our busy lives, it's hard to find something that we can all enjoy together, yet doesn't take too much time. Our family includes our devotionals in our morning time together.

When I was growing up in the church, there were foundational Bible stories that everyone knew. They were the backbone of our spiritual education. It seems that as churches have become more transient, and curriculum is becoming more relational, these Bible stories are not as known by the youth being raised in our modern churches. And that is okay.

Why is that okay? I believe that the job of transmitting the truths of the Bible has and always will be in the job description of the parent. The church supports us in the task of raising Godly young men and women, but we shouldn't be outsourcing our God given assignment. That is why I always have my eyes out for resources to build and strengthen my family's faith. The ESV Family Devotional Bible is a beautiful tool designed specifically to equip parents to fulfill their mission.

    ESV is our favorite version. I am glad to read your review.

    Growing up, my favorite Bible story was that of Jacob and Rachel. Was always a sucker for a chick flick. 🙂 Though, now that I’m older, I just can’t enjoy it as much with the full understanding of their entire story.

  3. Dawn Rivera on May 14, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    My favorite was Jesus’ birth.

  4. Gretchen O. on May 14, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    I love the family devotional aspect. This would be very helpful to so many families.

    Growing up I enjoyed stories I knew the songs to… Zacheus, David & Goliath, Noah…

  6. Deborah on May 14, 2016 at 8:16 pm

    I loved Bible stories as a child. Noah’s Ark, Walls of Jericho, The birth of Jesus, Ruth, Esther, Mary and Martha. I kept my mom busy.

    This looks great. We really prefer the ESV version. Any idea if this edition is available in Spanish? Thanks for the chance, Betsy!

      Thanks DeeDee! I think it’s only in English right now, but it would be a great resource to have in other languages!

    My favorite Bible story growing up was Ruth- I was comforted through my childhood valleys knowing God had taken care of her, He would take care of me, too.

    • Betsy on May 18, 2016 at 9:55 pm

      That is such a great reminder. Ruth’s story is beautiful.

  9. Amanda Geaney on May 18, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    The only story I remember hearing as a child was the story of Ruth. It caught my attention because my grandmother’s name was Ruth.
    I’m happy to say that I am raising my children to not only know the stories, but to know the Bible’s Author as well.

    • Betsy on May 18, 2016 at 9:52 pm

      That is so amazing. It’s always fascinating to see what draws us to scripture. What a great legacy of faith you are blessing your children with.
