Using this wonderful little book becomes habit forming for families, or anyone searching for the right words of praise. The practice of giving thanks before meals has faded, this book helped my family to get back into the habit.
I have owned this book for years and often give it as a gift to those who are inclined (or need a gentle nudge) to count their blessings. It contains short prayers of gratitude from Christians, Jews, Native Americans, and other cultures. The prayers are short, lovely, and to the point, which is to express gratitude. Bless the Kellys for putting the book together!
I gave this as a gift to friends who are just starting their family. I thought it would get them started on a great family tradition of saying a blessing at meal time, and I was right, they really loved it! This little book has a wide variety of blessings and sayings from the infamous, the well known and the unknown. Some you will like and appreciate, and some you likely will not, a bit for everyone.
