Sing, Wrestle, Spin

Prayers for Active Kids

Jennifer Grant

Mar/2022, 128 Pages, PAPERBACK, 5.5 x 8.5

ISBN-13: 9781640655164

Fresh and imaginative ways for kids to pray using all of their senses.  

Prayer does not have to involve silence, sitting still, and solemnity. It can be active and engaging, especially essential for kids, who often enjoy movement and creativity. In an easy-to-use format with illustrations, the author connects scripture and biblical characters to dynamic prayer practices such as wrestling, singing, breathing, and dancing. 

Praying while using sign language, tracing a labyrinth, applying Band-Aids, planting a seed, eating something delicious, or riding a bike—these fun ideas are just some of the ways wiggly, tactile, and nonverbal kids will learn to reach out in love, gratitude, and need to God. 

JENNIFER GRANT is the author of several books for adults, including the adoption memoir, Love You More. Her work for children includes the award-winning picture book Maybe God Is Like That Too. The mother of four and a lifelong Episcopalian, she lives in the Chicago area with her husband and rescue dog, Scarlett. Connect with her online at jennifergrant.com.
