An excellent foundation for all families desiring to begin, renew, or deepen their spiritual journey together, Bless This House features dozens of prayers appropriate for both everyday and special events, including mealtimes, bedtime, holidays, and religious celebrations, as well as prayers for siblings, pets, and the ill or dying.  With wisdom and practical advice, parents Gregory and Suzanne Wolfe provide helpful suggestions for introducing the concept of prayer to young minds and dealing with potential obstacles like boredom or short attention spans.  Teaching our children to pray opens the door for their spiritual development, but just as importantly, it becomes a path to spiritual renewal for parents as well.

Review:

“Every member of your family will find a valuable friend and companion in Bless This House--a book whose wonderful insights help us realize how much we can learn from one another as we search for life's meaning and fulfillment through prayer.”--Robert Coles, author, The Spiritual Life of Children

Bless This House moves prayer from a vaguely pious good intention that most parents have into the actual rough-and-tumble of children and parents growing up together.  With wit and wisdom, Gregory and Suzanne Wolfe explore the world of family as the most obvious place to pray and to learn to pray.”--Eugene H. Peterson, author, The Message

“Gregory and Suzanne Wolfe have written a rich and inviting treatment of family prayer. Focused on ways to teach children to pray, Bless This House is a fine commentary on prayer for everyone.” --Emilie Griffin, author, Doors Into Prayer: An Invitation
