Blotch A children’s book and Family Devotional

Blotch is a children’s book about forgiveness and grace, but it can also be used as a family devotional with five lessons matching the book’s five chapters. Check out the reviews below and don’t hesitate to share your own!

Although it started as a project to help adults share the faith with kiddos in our church, we are amazed that B&H Kids of LifeWay publishing has published and distributed this tale around the world: English, Dutch, Russian and Polish to date!

Retail locations where you can get your copy include LifeWay Christian Stores, Family Christian Stores, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Joshua, Focus on the Family, Christian Book Distributors and Amazon.

Or, I’d be glad to send you a copy or two through AddiMedia:

Dennis and I got a FaceTime call from our 8 year old granddaughter Lucy last night. Smiling from ear to ear, she tells us “I asked Jesus into my heart tonight”. And could Grandpa bab-ba-tize her on Easter. Her mama says, “Tell Grandma what you were doing when you asked Jesus in your heart Lucy.” Lucy says, “Reading Blotch and the questions at the back in our devotions.” So grateful! Love always,

What an amazing children's book. This is probably the best children's book I have read in a long time.

Andy Addis has found a profound way of taking the gospel message and sharing it in a simple way which touches the depth of our hearts. This is a book that each parent will want to read for themselves. Then they will want to read it with their children.

This book was even eye opening for me as I began to think more about how I deal with my own sins. It was thought provoking! ...What a thoughtful way to start those conversations you might not ever have had. While doing the discussion for chapter one, my little boy stopped me and said that he wanted to "Ask Jesus into my heart.”
