The greatest gift you can give your child

Your child's early years can be an exciting--and challenging--time for you as a parent. Fortunately, you don't have to do it on your own. God has a one-of-a-kind plan for the little life he has placed in your care, and it's never too soon to begin praying for this plan
to unfold. Praying Through Your Child's Early Years will show you how.

This year-by-year guide is the perfect prayer handbook from your child's birth through age five. Inside, you'll find stories, tips, and prayers for every important milestone--from crawling, walking, and table eating in baby's first year to helping with everyday chores once baby becomes a big boy or big girl. Journaling space for each phase of development helps you and your child remember in years to come how God was at work at every stage. Each chapter contains a special list of Scripture verses to guide further prayer and meditation on God's Word.

Give your child the greatest gift of all: a parent's prayers for the Father's protection and the Spirit's presence in every season of life.

Praying Through Your Child's Early Years is a comprehensive guide in teaching your child these valuable principles."

"Praying Through Your Child's Early Years recognizes the demanding nature of motherhood. As moms, we are often so busy meeting the needs of those around us that we forget to take care of ourselves. Jennifer uses her personal experience and professional training to offer practical, realistic ways for new moms to care for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Although it takes time, and sometimes feels selfish, taking care of ourselves helps us to be better moms for our kids."
