This Little Prayer of Mine

I loved this children's book...the illustrations are engaging to my 3 year old. The prayer is simple enough for him to understand and covers so much that a prayer should. Thankfulness, requests, praise, forgiveness...all in words and form that a child can understand. My son recently had to have a procedure done in the hospital and this is the book he wanted to read right before he went in for the anesthesia. It is one of my favorites!! And will be for a long long time.

This book was provided for review for me by WaterBrook Multnomah for free. All opinions expressed are my own.

Jesus, My Father, the CIA and Me by Ian Morgan Cron

This book was very poignant reading. He writes of his life and his thoughts. Dealing with an alcoholic and depressed father. In reading of some of the traumatic things he had to deal with as a child, I found myself drawn to hoping for a good ending to this story. The ending was not so much an ending as a new beginning and it made the story an uplifting one as well. Wonderfully written, very honest.

This book was given to me to review free of charge by Thomas Nelson publishers and all of my opinions are my own.
