The initial idea I (Lynda Freeman) had for this book was to write a resource to help my grandsons learn to be people who talked with God; so I took the reading schedule from my book; Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Grandparents & Parents, Too! and used it to form the basis for the book for children. Each week's passage in the children's book, matches the passage for the week in the book for grandparents and parents - making it a wonderful resource for families to use to read and pray through the Psalms for a year as children use this book and grandparents and parents us the other. Just imagine what it would be like to do this with the children you love - especially now, during the stay-at-home orders and changes to life our grandchildren/children are experiencing.
Each week's passage in Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children is written into three, age-level "nutshell prayers" . . . one with simple images non-readers will be able to learn and "read", so they are able to pray the Psalms, a simple prayer for beginning readers. and a longer prayer for older children who read well. This is a book which you are truly able to give to your grandchildren/ children ages four through 14. Look what people are saying about it . . .
As you use this book with your grandchildren/children, you will be able to help them learn to spend time reading God's Word, and then praying it back to God. Definitely take a serious look at Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children, and seriously consider getting it for the children you love - keep in mind Children's Day is just a little over a month away (second Sunday in June); it would make a fantastic gift.
You will find this book in our bookstore at this link (digital download is available for just $5) and at Amazon at this link. And, please help me spread the word about this book by sharing this post and telling the grandparents and parents you know about Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children. Thank you!
