Children Praying: Why and How to Pray with your Children by Joan Bel Geddes, Joan Bel Geddes

Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy a moment at the end of a hectic day when all family fights would stop, all pandemonium would be stilled, all problems suspended, all tensions relaxed?

Wouldn't your child -- and you -- profit at day's end from having a sturdy bridge to carry you from activity to repose, from excitement to tranquil sleep and pleasant dreams?

Joan Bel Geddes, an internationally recognized authority on children, believes that prayer can do all these things even for those families who are not sure that there is anyone out there to listen.

With the practicality and insight of a mother who has been there, she tells you how -- not just why -- to teach your children to pray:

  • before sleep
  • in the morning
  • before and after meals
  • on their special days
  • and on festival days from around the world.

In her ability to bring together the insights of spirituality and child development she has created a uniquely helpful book for all families.
