Book Review: I Love You to God and Back by Amanda Lamb

I Love You to God and Back
by:  Amanda Lamb

About the Book:
"Whimisical. Simple. Thankful. Profound.
One day at a time, one prayer at a time, a busy working mother and playful six-year-old daughter transformed their bedtime prayers. They started rushed and tired. Distracted, "It's late. Let's go."
And then, gradually, something happened. A thank you here. A vulnerable moment there. The perfunctory prayers became . . . opportunities. "What did you do today? What did you learn? Anything else?
Like a window into their relationship their prayers and reflections let us witness the growth, enjoy the childlikeness, and learn from their winsome faith. Discover how you and your child can find connection, humor, and a deeper understanding of God in the quiet last few minutes of each day."

My Review:
This really wasn't what I expected but it is a sweet book.  This is a mothers documentation of her daughters nightly prayers starting at the age of 6.  Each chapter consists of Chloe's nightly prayer along with moms help and then a bit of the author/mom's thoughts and inspirations.  Kids are amazing and they have the purest minds, which makes this is a great idea for any mom/daughter to do.  To be able to look back on and see the journey that they took together toward everlasting spirituality would be an amzing gift.  The author also includes a Prayer Primer for parents that can help to start their own journey towards praying with their children.  This would make a great gift for any new parent. 

*I received the book in this post compliments of Booksneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
