1. Pray for Others in Color with Sybil MacBeth, Author of Praying in Color
How often do we say “I’ll pray for you” and forget to offer a prayer? Or rattle off a name in prayer without feeling much if any connection to it. This new coloring book for adults offers a creative way to pray for our loved ones—friends and family—and sometimes maybe even someone we’d rather not pray for. By combining intercessory prayer with coloring, we can enter into a sacred space and spend time there focusing on each person.
This coloring book was created with the bestselling author of Praying in Color, Sybil MacBeth. Sybil discovered her method of praying through doodling during a time of intercessory prayer for a friend with cancer. Feeling she had no words to express her feelings in prayer, she began to doodle; after some time, she realized she had created a visual prayer for her friend. Sybil’s Praying in Color method is combined with coloring pages, so no matter whether you think you can draw or not: you can pray visually by filling in the lovely coloring pages included here.
What you’ll get: A complete digital copy of the book
2. Visual Lord’s Prayer from A Sanctified Art
“So often, we say the words of the Lord’s Prayer on autopilot—bowing our heads and saying those familiar words—without allowing them to sink into our hearts. This visual map of the Lord’s Prayer is a creative tool that invites readers to slow down and engage with the Lord’s prayer in a more intentional manner.”
What you’ll get: An 11×17 visual Lord’s Prayer that can be copied and laminated for placemats to teach children the Lord’s Prayer.

4. An Illustrated Compassion sample lesson and coloring page from Illustrated Children’s Ministry
An Illustrated Compassion: Learning to Love Like God is Illustrated Children’s Ministry’s second curriculum, after launching An Illustrated Earth last year. An Illustrated Compassion is a 12-week no-prep curriculum that will walk participants through twelve stories (six from the Hebrew Scriptures and six from the New Testament) that all focus on the theme of compassion.
No matter where you are on the theological or political spectrum, it’s clear our world needs more compassion. An Illustrated Compassion turns to scripture and looks for examples of God’s compassion throughout the Bible, and also asks what it might look like for all of us to lead more compassionate lives. The curriculum is a 12-week curriculum broken up into three modules.
What you’ll get: A 23 page sample with a full lesson and coloring pages.
5. Resources from Jerusalem Greer
Jerusalem Greer is someone who doesn’t easily fit in one category — in a good way! On her website she says this about herself:

In addition to my work at St. Peter’s, I am a writer, speaker, blogger, and the author of the book At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises, and A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking, Crafting and Coming Together, both published by Paraclete Press. I love helping busy modern people (families, churches, individuals) discover how to live slower, more whole lives, through the rich traditions of the Church Year and formative spiritual disciplines.
What you’ll get: a sample of her newest book At Home in this Life, an embroidery pattern, and a PDF companion to her first book, A Homemade Year containing intergenerational lessons, a discussion guide, and printable.
6. Wendy Claire Barrie Resources
Wendy Claire Barrie is a Christian Educator, parent, and writer. Her book Faith at Home gives practical advice for raising children in faith and is full of ideas.
Home (not the congregation) and parents (not clergy, youth ministers, or Sunday School) are the key mechanisms by which religious faith and practice are transmitted intergenerationally. Recent studies indicate that the single most important factor in youth becoming committed and engaged in their religious faith as young adults is that the family talks about religion at home. However, for many parents in the United States, religious language is a foreign language.
Faith at Home will help parents learn this “second language” and introduce it to their children in simple, meaningful, concrete ways. Parents often ask: How do we introduce prayer to our children if we do not necessarily believe prayer changes outcomes? How do we approach reading the Bible with our children when our own relationship with it is mixed or complicated? How do we talk about difficult things and where do we find God in the midst of them? How do we teach our children to make a difference in the world? How do we connect what happens at church to what happens at home? These questions and many more are addressed with talking points, practices, and resources provided for each subject.
What you’ll get: Printable Lord’s Prayer Card and Excerpt from Faith at Home

8. Prayers from Together We Pray: A Prayer Book for Families
Together We Pray is a book of prayers written especially for families with children. It brings together grandparents, parents, older children, and even the youngest child to give thanks and to ask for God’s help and mercy for the family and for the world.
The prayers offered in Together We Pray are inspired by the Psalms of the Bible, scripture shared by Jews and Christians. They include prayers for the table, devotional prayers, and memory prayers that young children can easily understand. The prayers for table and devotion begin with a line or two from the Psalm in which the prayer is rooted and celebrate the good things of life just as the Psalms do-food, joy, home, love, and more. They also express a concern for other people and places around the world.
For so many families, life today seems fast-paced and chaotic. Stopping for a moment to breathe-pausing and expressing thanks and gratitude to God-can be very powerful, even if the pause is relatively brief. Together We Pray helps families to take that pause, to share in God’s love and grace, and to do so in the most profound and lasting way–together as a family.
What you’ll get: An excerpt from the book containing great table prayers
