From the Back Cover

Try talking to God with a pencil, pen, marker, or box of crayons!
Writing to God: Kids' Edition shows kids how their prayers:
- Don't have to be perfect to reach God.
- Don't have to use big or fancy words.
- May tell a story using words or pictures.
- Can be happy or sad.
- May have misspelled and crossed-out words. (God understands when we make mistakes.)

"Rachel Hackenberg has an amazing ability to transform the most ordinary elements in a child's life. She invites kids to be themselves but also to see their world through God's eyes." --Trish Heidebrecht, Christian Educator, Chippawa Presbyterian Church

"Rachel Hackenberg's book introduces us to a practical method that should work for just about everyone. All that is needed is a simple writing tool, some paper, and the imagination that often comes from being a kid." -- Rev. Ricky Manalo, CSP, is a liturgical composer, author, and member of the Paulist Fathers Community.

As many Christian parents, I also want to help my children to develop a close relationship with God, which is why I liked this prayer journal idea. However, soon after reading the first pages we noticed that something didn't really click. I researched the author to make sure she didn't have the influence of the New Age movement, or anything outside the Bible teachings, and found out that she is the pastor of the United Church of Christ, which they call the church of firsts.

This is part of their statements: "And so we were the first historically... to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry."

Just wanted to point to this fact for those of you who pay attention to the sources of your Christian devotions materials. I understand that the statement sounds very mainstream, but what's the point of following Christ if we want to alter His truth.

As a Christian mom I'm always looking for ways to encourage my children and strengthen their relationships with God. In writing this book,Writing to God: Kid's Edition the author, Rachel G. Hackenberg gives a child a realistic approach to connecting with God and seeing both herself and her world the way God sees them.

Often times a child might keep a journal to express herself but Writing to God goes beyond a simple journal. I feel that the author not only wants the child to see life through God's eyes but to use all of her senses to experience God's creations. This out-of-the-box approach opens the child's mind to noticing the world she's in and to really experience all of the wonders God surrounds her with each and everyday.

By encouraging the child to write about "things I am thankful for smelling" (#1) The child takes time to remember the simple pleasure in the smell of warm cookies or mom's perfume. By asking her to write about the feel of a soft blanket or the sound of the rain, Hackengberg shows the child that God can be appreciated in every little thing.

The stories from other children and the prayer examples throughout the book, showed my daughter that others had her same concerns and shared her same worries. These examples also showed her that her prayers don't have to sound rehearsed or perfect, that simply being in His presence and praying in her own words is what matters most.

My daughter age 10, enjoyed the book very much. She felt that writing prayers to God gave her a way to hand her troubles to Him and in doing so took the worry off of her.

What a fresh and precious perspective on prayer! These writing prompts make prayer easily and accessible for kids of all ages...even big ones. A great tool to use for family devotion times as well as any time you're teaching kids how to talk with God up close and personal.
