Friends and Heroes Family Devotion Pack Review

We have enjoyed Friends and Heroes for many years now. We were given DVD 1 and a Homeschool Unit Study to review and ended up buying the remaining DVDs on our own and have used them ever since! We recently reviewed their new Homeschool Bible Study here, and are excited to share the all new Family Devotion Pack with you!

  • Devotions based on video adventures and Bible stories that children love.
  • Easy-to-use parent-led devotions created for families with children ages 5-12.
  • Dynamic, fun devotions designed to get the whole family involved.
  • All materials are printable and reusable (PDF files).
  • Loads of FREE online resources on the Friends and Heroes Children’s Website to supplement your devotional time.

 

 

The new Family Devotional Pack is based on Friends & Heroes Series 1 video episodes which we already owned personally. We got the Family Devotion Pack DVD which contains the materials in PDF form for this review and so far it is my favorite Friends and Heroes addition!

I loaded the devotions {in PDF form, I use Dropbox and open in iBooks} onto my iPad to use digitally and printed the worksheets and Bible verse memory cards for Ladybug to use.

    We haven’t used Friends and Heroes as our main Bible curriculum recently, it’s been a few years. I honestly wanted to try out this new set to see if it might be a good addition for her for the coming school year.
    We sat and watched the first episode together, and she was reminded how much she loves it. I chose to print the Extra! Extra! worksheet which led us on a Bible discovery all about fish. One of the featured Bible stories in episode 1 is based on The Miraculous Catch of Fish from Luke 5. The extension activity was really neat as it took us on a journey of looking things up in the Bible.

    Below you can see her almost complete sheet. We answered questions together like…

How many fish were used to feed the 5000?

On what day did God create fish?

Which Old Testament character was swallowed by a big fish?

    and more! This was a really neat activity and prompted some great discussion.

I am planning to continue to use the Family Devotion Pack with Ladybug. I know it is intended for families but my boys just don’t have the time to add something like this into their school schedule and my oldest is a bit too old.

I want her to go back through the video series, they are just SO good and teach so much church history as well as specific Bible stories. I like this Family Devotion Pack because of the discussion, simple extension printables and verse cards. It is just the simple plan I need with her to take her through Friends and Heroes again. She was really little when we used it as our main Bible curriculum.

Here’s the general layout I plan to follow…

  • Watch the episode together
  • Read the devotion together and discuss
  • Do one extension activity {I choose from the options in advance and have it printed}
  • Use the Bible Verse Memory cards

The Family Devotion Pack is designed for families doing devotions together and I definitely recommend it for that purpose. As you can see it is extremely flexible and can be adapted to use however best fits your family.
