About Pockets

Pockets is a 48-page devotional magazine for children ages 6-12, published by The Upper Room. Launched in 1981 as a response to parents and grandparents who wanted a devotional magazine especially for children, Pockets is published 11 times a year. (January/February is a combined issue.) Pockets is designed for the personal use of children to help them grow in their relationship with God. The magazine is distributed by individual subscriptions and standing orders to churches. Pockets includes full-color photos and illustrations, stories, poems, games, mission-focused activities, daily scripture readings, non-fiction articles, and contributions from children. Pockets receives regular feedback from a Kids’ Advisory Board, who evaluate each issue, suggest themes for future issues, and give input on various questions throughout the year.

Using Pockets

Though Pockets is created for children's personal use, there are many ways parents can use the magazine at home and children's ministry leaders can use the magazine at church.

Jesus is speaking to us . . .

"Many of us are used to the idea that we might speak to God or to Jesus. Maybe at times it feels like shouting into the darkness or whatnot, but it’s not hard to do—at least as an imaginative exercise. What’s harder—even imaginatively—is to try to hear Jesus speaking to us. Are we just making things up? Are we just using Jesus as a puppet to say whatever we want to hear?" READ MORE
