I had the pleasure of spending a morning writing with Owen’s third-grade class earlier this spring. We talked about the process of writing a devotion and then came up with an idea and wrote one together. The kids were full of ideas and fun to work with. Owen’s good buddy, Nolan, came up with a great start for the devo, and lots of kids piped in with their ideas.
The story is made up with some elements of truth. The class really did donate money toward gifts for a family in need this past Christmas. I love it that my kids go to a school where they are taught the value of giving to others.
The devotion we wrote, “Freddy’s Gift,” was published at devokids.com today. Click on the link below to check it out.
