Anointed; Gifts of the Holy Spirit

by Carol Gordon Ekster

With bright and playful illustrations, Before I Sleep: I Say Thank You uses a simple bedtime story to help children develop a nightly habit of prayer and gratitude. Before I Sleep takes readers through the nighttime routine of one little boy with his mother. As they reflect on the day, he recalls both things that he could have done better and blessings received throughout his day.

With its roots in the Examen prayer, Before I Sleep takes you through a bedtime ritual that is common to many religions. A parent page explains the Ignatian practice of using the Examen prayer to review the day and a simplified version of the prayer is included for children. Ideal for children ages 4 – 8.

Features & Benefits: 

  • Encourages children to express gratitude in their daily lives
