This new edition with a new preface by the author celebrates the domestic church - a family worshiping together at home - with a collection of prayers and blessings that remain as fresh and creative today as they were over twenty-five years ago. With blessings for birthdays, family members, the home, pets, and more, this book makes it easy and fun to gather in prayer as a family. This book is an ideal gift for weddings, baptisms, the birth of a child, special family milestones, and sacred moments.
