This playful book by Sybil MacBeth helps children get in touch with their inner artist and connect with God and others through prayer.

MacBeth, a math teacher and active member of her church, shows how children can use doodling as a means of spending time with God and opening their hearts to others. She suggests creating a prayer drawing using various shapes, working with different names of God, and adding the names of family members and friends inside the shapes. “Remember,” she writes, “praying in color is a way to pray with your eyes, your ears, and your hands. It invites yourmind, your heart, and your body into the prayer” (Paraclete Press).
