Exploring Grace Together
40 Devotionals for the Family
Children need more than behavior modification.
They need the gospel.
But every parent knows how hard it can be to communicate the truth of God’s Word and the message of God’s grace in a way that engages the hearts, minds, and affections of the little ones we love so much.
Assisting parents with this high calling, Jessica Thompson offers us a gospel-centered alternative to merely telling our kids what they must do to please God and be a “good Christian.” Designed for the whole family, this collection of Scriptural meditations will help you teach your children to treasure and rely on Jesus more than anything else.
“I can’t think of a better subject to walk through with my family or a better person to walk through it with than Jessica Thompson. Exploring Grace Together has a treasure trove of grace reflections and questions at the end of each lesson so that the treasure may be found. Read each devotional, and you will love the Savior in greater ways.”

“Exploring Grace Together brings the gospel to bear on real-life issues that kids face such as loneliness, jealousy, and failure. Along the way it also calls us as parents to believe that the gospel—not our rules or expectations or kids’ good behavior or accomplishments—is truly the power of God for salvation in our kids’ lives. That means this book is good news for the whole family.”
Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow
“My wife and I have enjoyed journeying through Exploring Grace Together with our kids. These forty short, fun devotionals have been kid-tested and proven by the Montgomery boys and girls and by two grateful parents who have often lamented the shortage of books that teach the gospel of God’s grace rather than the ‘gospel of rules and behavior modification.’”
