Sent to welcome a new baby. It was a hit!
I have HOLY WEEK, PSALMS OF PRAISE and JESUS HEALS. As a volunteer leader in children's ministry I am always looking for resources and I LOVE to share books with children. I love the simple language and beautiful bright pictures and board books are so sturdy!
Holy Week is so beautiful for adults and children alike to reflect on the tumultuous mix of emotions surrounding the last week of Jesus' life as we re-live this to some extent each year. Children understand big emotions and it's so wonderful to know Jesus does too.
I love that Jesus Heals talks about healing while teaching about bodies, and Psalms of Praise is a great one to practice actions with.
Giving to two of my wonderful students for graduation with notations for favorite prayers.
This is a lovely book - the liturgies are poetic and there are so many different prayers for all different occasions. I got this to give as a gift but ended up looking through it myself before giving it and am tempted to buy myself a copy as well! I opted for the smaller size and really like it - the pages feel nice, the soft cover gives without feeling flimsy, and as weird as it may sound it's just a pleasant experience holding the book.
This is an incredible resource that includes a diverse collection of art, poetry, music...all connected to scripture and the church calendar. I have already thought of several people I plan to gift with this inspiring volume.
This little book is the perfect guide to more intentional prayer throughout the day. A wonderful resource!
This is no bigger than a wallet, but carries the ability to provide moments of rest and pause, but also words to provide comfort and inspiration.
This book is my first foray into Traci Smith's work. It is direct, to the point, and easy to adapt practices and think through concepts for children.
I have a background in child development, and even have dabbled in children's ministry, but I still flounder. (I am definitely a youth and college minister.) This book makes the process of Advent, Christmas, etc. relatable and me able to work with children, both the ones I'm raising and others.
I highly recommend it as a primer and it goes well paired with Shadow and Light (also sold in this store.)
