Great Purchase! May 3, 2008
Delightful little book that helps you pray for your child. Includes scripture with every prayer and project ideas at the end of each chapter for teaching the character qualities your are praying for.
So sweet....... Mar 21, 2005
I received this book from a dear friend who thought enough of me and of my children's future.
This book teaches you to build character into your children's lives through prayer. There are 12 specific character traits (kindness, humility, teachability, forgiveness, obedience, discernment, purity, responsibility, courage, servanthood and contentment) that are devoted to 5 days each. At the end of each section there are steps that will help you teach your child the character trait for which you've just prayed.
I've found it to be a wonderful guide for me as I raise three small children (twin boys at 4yrs and a little girl at 20 months).
This is a great gift for any Christian Mommy and for those Mommy's who could use some steering in that direction!
