This Little Prayer of Mine…
As a mom, I love seeing my kids’ faith grow.
I love hearing how their prayers have changed from memorized toddler bedtime prayers (“Now I lay me down to sleep…”) to prayers of their hearts (“Please help me with my test tomorrow…”).
And I love the fact that my kids know, no matter what happens in life, they are never alone.
God is with them, and He hears them.
“I know you’re up in heaven, God,
I was drawn in.
I love that message.
And I especially love the reminder near the end of the book…
“But when I trust in you, my God,
and in your plan for me,
I know there’s nothing in the world
that I can’t do or be.”
The beautiful illustrations by Marc Elliott, and the sweet rhyming text by Anthony, combine to make this heartwarming story about the never-ending love of God one that kids will love. If you get a minute, check it out. :)
*Disclaimer: This is not a paid review (although I did receive a copy of the book to read). I just think it’s a great book for kids and was happy to share it. :)
