A true blessing Oct 22, 2007
I love this book. I will keep it forever. I think it's a wonderful gift to include in a baby shower gift. My daughter is 3 going on four and already expects me to pray over her every morning. It is so sweet when she reminds me and snuggles up to me and says "Mommy don't forget to pray for me." God bless all the mommies and daddies.

Hold Your Child's Life in God's Light Mar 24, 2005
Julie Cragon has crafted special short prayers for her children, aged 3 to 16, as they were, are, and will be. Some reflections begin with a verse from scripture. Many address a specific saint, as, "St. John Berchmans, guide my child as he assists at Mass," and "St. Sebastian, watch over my child during his game today." Nine saints, including Monica (return to faith) and Nicholas (generosity) are invoked in a novena for a child's needs. The "Rosary for my child" offers a short scripture passage and reflection for each of the 20 mysteries. There are prayers for children in myriad phases and circumstances; for example, potty training, loss of a pet, driving, choosing a college, and a first job interview. Prayers in the final chapter relate to serious illness and loss. This book would be a valued gift for parents at any stage of life.
