Prayers for every moment of the day from morning to night.

With rhyming text and playful illustrations, My Tender Heart Prayer Book offers inspiring words and “Heart Moments” to foster a little one’s relationship with God.

“Such a sweet prayer book demonstrating how kids may pray in all circumstances throughout the day. Kids will love the extra activities and encouragement to apply these prayers to their own lives.”

Jill Roman Lord, award-winning children’s book author

Laura Sassi, AUthor

I have a passion for telling stories in prose and rhyme. I’ve been a teacher, homeschool mom, children’s ministry director, historic museum interpreter, and more. I write from my home in New Jersey where I live with my husband, two children, and a black cockapoo named Sophie. I find special joy in sharing my love of reading and writing with the next generation at school visits and other book events!
