Praying in Color Kids' Edition (Paperback)
Paraclete Press, 9781557255952, 40pp.
Publication Date: February 1, 2009
This first-of-its-kind resource will forever change the way kids prayer - and how adults try to teach them to do it.
This is prayer that makes sense to kids. One minute a day will do. Any time of the day will work. Drawing with markers or crayons is h alf the prayer; the other half is carrying the visual memories throughout the day. Ages 5-11.
Praise for Praying in Color:
"Just as Julia Cameron, in the Artist's Way, showed the hardened Harvard businessman he had a creative artist lurking within, MacBeth makes it astonishingly clear that anyone with a box of colors and some paper can have a conversation with God."
