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.
And excellent resource for private devotional time and time with family and friends. I love looking through it before any major event and particularly enjoy the litergy for enjoying coffee in the morning. Even if there is no "quiet of morning" in my house with 4 children it helps to quiet my mind to focus on my time with God.
This book would make an excellent gift for many, but I also have enjoyed just the beauty it possesses in imagery and words.
An incredibly beautiful book. The gold embossing, the illustrations, the acknowledgement of such ordinary holiness is wonderful! I would say that some liturgies went on a little bit, but I liked that some of them also had shorter versions to choose from. I think I may annoy my friends when I show up with a liturgy for EVERY occasion, but hopefully in the long run they'll thank me 🤪.
