Kids Bibles, Devotionals, and Apps

Are you always looking for great resources to pass along to the parents in your church?

At the church where I serve, we haven’t been great at this, so we decided to put something together that we could give parents.

We went to other Kid’s Pastors, Mentors, College Professors, and our own bookshelves.

And we came up with a list of Bible, Devotional, and App resources for parents to use with their kids.

This list is certainly not exhaustive, but we tried to include a good mix of different options for parents to consider.

It’s broken into Bibles and Devotionals for Pre-K, K-3rd, and 4th-6th. At the end are a few apps we were able to find which are broken into Preschool/Kindergarteners and Elementary.

Here’s a downloadable word doc of the list, so you can make any subtractions/additions you want: Parent Resources for Kids.doc (.pdf version)

Now let’s jump in.
