My Tender Heart
Prayer Book

“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.”

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!

She is endlessly inspired by animals, nature, and friendships. Sandra’s style is soft and sweet with an emphasis on characters and connections.
