God calls us to live lives of joy, but sometimes we feel mad, sad, or scared. Managing Your Emojis, a 100-day devotional, teaches kids that God loves them no matter what they’re feeling, and Scripture can empower them to manage their emotions.
Learning to manage our emotions is a critical life skill, yet we’ve often missed equipping kids with these valuable skills before situations intensify into mental health issues. Managing Your Emojis will help kids discover that emotional control and happiness come from God’s love for them. Through short, accessible devotions kids will be encouraged to observe, name, and release their emotions while turning to God for the strength, love, and care they need as they begin the fast-moving process of growing up.
Managing Your Emojis, for boys and girls ages 8–12:
- Teaches kids they can accept and manage their God-given emotions.
- Refers to specific Scriptures that speak to our emotions and help children realize God accepts all their emotions.
- Creates freedom in families to discuss emotions and know they are part of God’s design.
- Includes stories that present a problem, a Scripture that provides a solution, a practical application, and a closing prayer.
- Is written by bestselling author Lynn Cowell and licensed professional counselor Michelle Nietert.
Managing Your Emojis will empower your child to find acceptance and approval from God as they come to know that God made them just as they are; intense emotions and all.

I was given an early copy and this review is completely my own.
Managing your emojis is a good book for kids, it will help them manage the emotions in their lives and hopefully understand what they are feeling and be able to put it into words.
It has scripture to back it up as well!
Managing your Emojis is a fun and heartfelt guidebook for today's kids navigating the confusing emotions that often plague and cripple their adult counterparts. With heartfelt anecdotes and positive coping skills taught throughout, this book could be used as a wonderful tool to teach your child how to manage (and not be held hostage by) his or her emotions.
Although this seems to be geared more towards middle graders, and not necessarily the ages of my own children, I used a few meltdown coping techniques for frustrating piano practice and scriptures for nightmares in our house and it was really helpful. I felt more empowered as a parent and better prepared for those moments and I was only reading the book through, NOT using it as a journal/workbook as it is meant to be used.
I loved that there were also individual scriptures for each of the prompts so everything to help my child having a difficult time was literally right there, on the page, practically spoon fed for me to apply its principles.
This book can equip parents with the vocabulary and tools to teach children of any age how to work through difficult times and emotions and is a great addition to anyone's parenting book arsenal.
