What I Loved

This book! It is everything I could have asked for—and more! I will definitely be recommending it for years to come.

I love how practical and meaningful it is. The authors share with authenticity and provide simple strategies to infuse prayer into every aspect of our lives. 

Many of the suggestions were things our family already incorporates into our days, yet there were plenty of fun new ideas to add to our repertoire as well.

It’s a quick read that you’re going to absolutely love! 

It’s clear that the authors’ hearts are for helping their kids cultivate deep relationships with Jesus. This book will take the pressure out of prayer and make it second nature, for you and your kids!
