Reviews - What do customers think about Peanut Butter & Jelly Prayers?

Creativity and Humor Light Up Prayers for the Foods and Places Where We REALLY Eat!  Mar 21, 2008
As a father of two grown children, I had forgotten how a creative approach to meal-time prayers can spark both joy and new perspectives on our time together over everything from fast food - to a banquet. Then, last autumn, I made a pilgrimage to Iona off the coast of Scotland, where part of the spiritual discipline for the dozens of adult pilgrims is a playful approach to praying over mealtimes.

I wanted to buy one of the mealtime prayerbooks we used at Iona, however, many of the well-thumbed guides in the Iona dining room were out of print - or weren't available in the United States. So, I was pleased to discover this new book from Morehouse Publishing by Julie Sevig, called "Peanut Butter and Jelly Prayers." The moment I opened the cover, I found myself in the same thankful-yet-playful sacred spaces that I recalled from the Iona dining room.

In a mere 82 pages, Sevig serves up enough creative material to enliven your meals for a long time! Some of these prayers are quite serious. Some are beautiful. Some are extremely simple. Some are designed to add new spiritual rhythms to seasons of the year - like various Advent prayers in preparation for Christmas. But, for me, it was the fun prayers that caught my eye, including a special prayer devoted simply to "pancakes," whenever we choose to consume such wonderful comfort food.

There's a four-line vegetarian prayer in rhymed couplets that's perfect for families avoiding meat. And, for pizza lovers? There's a special prayer that ends with a reminder that God, too, "delivers." No, these prayers are not irreverent. The author is using creative surprises to spark a greater awareness of our world.

That brings me to her best prayer in the book, called "Fast Food." As a journalist covering religion for more than 20 years, this is the first time I can recall an author taking the time to pen a prayer for Americans' most frequent dining venue outside the home! Bravo, Julie Sevig, for thinking of this one.

Sevig is a longtime journalist herself. She's an expert in developing Sunday school materials for children - and, perhaps most importantly, she's a parent. In the book, she does provide questions for discussion with each prayer, but my guess is that most readers will wind up memorizing a favorite handful of her prayers. So, she will be shaping their lives long after the book itself has been tucked away on a family bookshelf. Finally, that's the best salute I can give this little volume - that it is likely to live on, quite intentionally, in readers' spiritual memories.
Awesome book for families!  Feb 18, 2008
This book is great. There are lots of options for prayers to use at mealtimes. My family loves the rhyming prayers for special foods. But we also enjoy the prayers for special occassions. When its time to pray our kids say, "Peanut Butter and Jelly Book" Obviously it's a hit with them too.:-)
Very sweet book  Jan 21, 2008
This is a great book. I got it for my six year old. The prayers are very suitable for her. It also has discussion questions for the family. I think this will be a treasure over the year.
