Spiritual tool for busy families available

-A A +A

EVERGREEN, Colo. – In “Blessings, My Child,” Ginger Payne equips parents and caregivers with a practical tool that builds a solid spiritual foundation with the children in their lives.
Everyone raising a child understands the challenge of juggling workand family responsibilities.
Then add to it the desire to raise children who will love and serve God for the rest of their lives. It can feel overwhelming.
Many grown-ups want to communicate this message and build a spiritual relationship with their children, but lack confidence, feel ill-equipped, or don’t have the time to actually follow through on their intentions.
What began with a handful of blessings, written by a retired schoolteacher, grew into a book that engages both children and adults.
“Blessings, My Child” includes 101 biblically-based messages of love from God that nourish the soul of the young reader-and its corresponding Scripture, more than discussion and 101 full-color illustrations that engage the young reader and provide material for further discussion.
All of this can be completed in as little as 10 minutes a day.
“Writing Blessings, My Child wasn’t on the radar screen when I
started,” Payne said. “I began by writing blessings for
the children at two orphanages in Kenya that my husband and I help
support. They were written as if God was speaking directly to each
child. I wanted the children to know how much God loved and cared
about them.”
Payne graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education and spent the rest of her working career teaching children. Married to husband Chris for over 40 years, she enjoys spending time with her two daughters and four grandchildren in Evergreen.
