While My Child Is Away

While My Child Is Away
My Prayers for When We Are Apart
Edie Melson
One of the hardest things a parent can do is let their child go in to the world, knowing there isn't anything they can do to help or guide them. The author of this book has written some prayers that parents can pray for various situations when the parents are parted from their children and the only option is to pray. Prayers, scripture, and some wisdom in the form of devotions all mix together to create a comforting and hopeful book for parents.

First, I loved the cover of this book, so calming and beautiful. The book is compact, so easy to take with you. Each prayer is specific, not very long, and accompanied by a Bible verse. The book is divided into nine different sections that cover a lot of the different scenarios that a parent might encounter with their child. This would be a wonderful gift for a parent, especially one that has a child leaving the home for college, marriage, camp, etc.

I received this book free of charge from First Look in exchange for my honest review.
