Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions Book Review

Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions by Tim Shoemaker is not your typical devotional book. It’s kid friendly, way cool, and a kinda dangerous fun way to share spiritual messages with kids of any age.

Pilot and I are fortunate to have first-hand experience with some of Tim’s devotions. Let me tell you, once you’ve seen him use a leaf blower to unroll toilet paper to prove a biblical point of walking in the Spirit versus living in our own power, your life will never be the same. Or a devotion using a dry ice frozen hot dog to teach about hard hearts.

I wish this book was around when Pie was growing up. I’d love to have used these devotions. Well. Maybe not the one using raw hamburger if you didn’t have the preferred fresh road kill. Or the one Tim admits setting paper on fire – twice – during the demonstration. Or electrocuting a pickle which came with six safety precautions. Maybe not those devotions.

Disclaimer. Pilot and I know Tim, so had to laugh while reading his caution warnings regarding certain devotions. Things like, “When I get a flame, I stop the microwave immediately, open the door, and blow it out. Kids love seeing the flame, but you don’t have to let it go that far.” With the additional reminder to keep a bucket of water handy. Don’t you love it?

If you have children, grandchildren or know a child, pick up a copy of Very Best, Hands-On, Kinda Dangerous Family Devotions for each of their families. You won’t regret it. Besides delivering unforgettable visual demonstrations, you’ll also deliver unforgettable Biblical truths through each devotion.

But don’t forget the safety goggles, sheets of thick plastic, and buckets of water. 🙂

Anyone up for launching baking potatoes through a PVC pipe to demonstrate the destructive effects of uncontrolled anger? Or dropping watermelons out a two-story window to show some things are worth holding onto?

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

I wish you well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
