A blessing is one of life's precious gifts. More than a prayer, it's a request that our heavenly Father will open the doors of heaven and shower his divine mercies-love, prosperity, and all good things-on the people we pray for. God knows we all need kind words for our spirits to flourish, because the tongue can be difficult to tame! Our souls thrive when watered by gracious words and small kindnesses. And our hearts are renewed when a gentle voice says, I love you. I believe in you. You can do it! Blessings, Prayers, and Heartsongs is a poignant collection of Charlene Quint Kalebic's original verses, each designed to be shared. Kalebic reminds us never to underestimate the miraculous gift that's ours to give when we request God's blessing on the special people in our lives. Be ready to offer a gracious word whenever someone: enters into marriage, welcomes a new baby, moves to a new home, celebrates a birthday or anniversary, graduates, joins the armed services, or grieves a loss. This exquisite collection will help you invite the Lord to be central in all of life's special moments, and to practice showering His grace and love on all the people you treasure. So let the blessings flow! After all, we treasure those we treasure, and we love those we love, when we ask the Lord to rain his blessings upon them!

Read an Excerpt
“Every word we speak should be a blessing to others. I like to think that each word is a gift especially picked for the recipient, tucked with tissue of loveliness inside a beautiful silver box of graciousness, and wrapped with a golden bow of love. Who wouldn't want to receive a gift like that every day?” author Charlene Quint Kalebic
