Overview

"A much-needed book with practical exercises and affirmations that will help children keep in touch with their heart and spirit."

Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D., author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear

"Nurturing Spirituality in Children is a wonderful way to teach children some of life's greatest gifts!"

Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life

The greatest gifts that a child can receive are an opened mind, a caring heart, and ignited creativity. Thus fully expanded, illustrated edition of Nurturing Spirituallity in Children includes sixty-two simple and thought-provoking lessons that can be shared with children in less than ten minutes each. The lessons are easy to prepare and understand; they use commonly available materials and complement a wide variety of religious perspectives.

Children who develop a healthy balance of mind and sprit are better able to respond to life's challenges when given the tools to think and discover for themselves. Dr. Jenkins gives scores of age-appropriate activities that help children learn empathy, trust, forgiveness, growth, and inner peace.

Peggy Joy Jenkins, PH.D., is the author of four highly acclaimed parent/teacher education books, including Art for the Fun of It, The Magic of Puppetry, and The Joyful Child. Dr. Jenkins is founder and president of Joyful Child, Inc., a nonprofit organization serving parents and teachers. During the 1990s she published Joyful Child Journal, a national magazine that offered educational and inspirational articles for parents and teachers as well as values-based stories for children.
