A young dark skinned child looks at her Bible, sitting beside her mother. The room is dark, but the Bible is glowing with light.

Bible reading is for everyone! If you’re looking for kids and family devotionals, we’re here to help! A new year is a fantastic time for everyone in the family to start new habits and get kids of all ages involved!

If you’re looking for some great resources, we recommend YouVersion’s Bible App! This app can be downloaded free on phones, tablets and other devices or accessed through any computer browser. You will find Bible reading and devotion plans for all ages and interests, including some written by the Compassion Canada content team. Because we at Compassion believe in equipping families to follow Jesus together and we love telling kids about God’s love, we have plans for kids and families, too!
