  • Dear Children - The Queen of Peace Visits Medjugorje

    Life was simple in Medjugorje…

    People lived like they had for hundreds of years—growing crops, raising livestock, and spending time with family and friends. Heaven, though, had other plans, and the village changed forever after a group of children saw an extraordinary sight on a nearby hillside one summer afternoon.

    Throughout history, people in different parts of the world have been visited by Mary, the mother of Jesus. Still, no one expected her to visit Medjugorje, least of all the six children who would come to be known as “the visionaries.” As they would soon find out, her heavenly visits would transform their sleepy hamlet into a destination of hope and peace for people from every part of the world.

    Mary’s messages begin with the words “Dear Children,” and she wishes for every person in the world to see her as a mother. This is the true story of Medjugorje and the Queen of Peace.

  • Lenten Survival Guide for Kids

    By Peter Celano

    Written for 7-11 year olds, this playful guide appeals to kids who want to know more about what adults are telling them is a serious time. Without talking down to them, and challenging them to learn and do more, the following topics are explored in detail: What Lent Is, What Lent Definitely Is Not, 40 Days of Survival Tactics, and A Few Prayers and Practices — Only for Kids.

    From What Lent Definitely Is Not:

    People easily become confused on this subject. In fact, we’re glad you are reading this book, because we want to set you, at least, straight. You can then please set others straight.

    Lent is not about "giving up" silly things. It is not about making sad faces to show how difficult life has suddenly become for you. (Need we startexplaining how most of the world would think that giving up candy bars or soda for 40 days sounds just plain silly? According to Bread for the World, 925 million people around the world go hungry each day. So please don’t talk about the terrible hardship you are undergoing by giving up M&M’s and Coca-Cola for a few weeks.)

    So instead of focusing on what you may give up, take time to consider why you may do it. You give stuff up for Lent because you want to become a better Christian. You are testing yourself — and allowingGod to test you — to see if, by giving up something that maybe you are toofocused on in everyday life, you can concentrate more on him.

  • Angels for Kids

    By Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle

    Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle featured on EWTN Sunday Night Prime with Fr. Andrew Apostoli speaking about Angels - Sunday, Nov. 9 The invisible world of angels is so often overlooked, though it has been present since before the dawn of Creation, offering attentive service and protection to humankind. Based on Catholic teaching, Angels for Kids offers proof of the true existence of angels while dispelling prevalent contemporary myths.

    This inspiring book will open the eyes and hearts of youth and their families to a greater awareness of the unseen world, as well as provide warm encouragement to keep company with the incredible angelic friends who unceasingly glorify God and who have been a significant part of salvation history; protecting Jesus throughout His life, announcing heaven's plans, and guiding and protecting the faithful. A chapter of special prayers to the angels completes the book.

    "Angels are our protectors,companions, and God's messengers. In Angels for Kids,Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle shares the important role they play in our lives in language that is compelling and at the same time accessible for little souls. Buy this book for your kids, savor some reading time along with them, andyou'll be amazed by how much you'll learn too!"
    Lisa M. Hendey , Author of A Book ofSaints for Catholic Moms and founder of www.CatholicMom.com

    All children should grow up knowing the companionship and powerful help of the holy angels. All children should grow up knowing the truth that this book teaches. It makes for a happier, more confident life. God created the angels to serve us as they glorify Him. We show our gratitude by enjoying their friendship, and Donna-Marie tells us how.
    Mike Aquilina Author, Angels of God, A Year with the Angels, and Entertaining Angels

    "What a delightful little book! Angels For Kids is wonderful in its simplicity and, yet, profound in its content and impact. Children of all ages will greatly benefit from this little catechesis on the angels. This book is truly a gem, containing both beautiful prayers and childlike insights, and Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has outdone herself in offering to all God's children this angelic treasury!"
    Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, STL Author, Under the Mantle: Marian Thoughts from a 21st Century Priest

    " Science calls us to believe in the unseeable — black holes in space, which cannot ever be seenbecause they absorb all light before it can reflect back to an observer. They believe in black holes because of anomalous behavior in space. So also, Christians, like Jews, Muslims, and many other religious people around the world and throughout history believe in angels, not only because of anomalous behaviors we experience in life's events but also because of God's Revelation in Scripture. We do well to introduce children to these facts, along with astronomical facts, to prepare them for a mature spiritual life. This book is such an introduction, and parents might be reminded of their own angels as they read with theirchildren."
    Fr. Mitch Pacwa,S.J.

    "Angels for Kids by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle surveys the whole Bible in a touching way . Thebook reminds its young readers that they are always lovingly cared for by God and protected from every kind of harm."

  • Writing to God - Kid's Edition

    By Rachel Hackenberg

    Writing to God—Kids' Edition offers guidance to kids that parents can also appreciate: It teaches them how to pray to God creatively through their pens (or pencils, or crayons).

    In 35 days, kids learn how to pray to God using their senses, reflecting on their feelings, in light of Bible verses, looking at nature, to understand the ordinary events of life, to use new words and pictures for God, and writing to God as a way to say "thank you."

    "Hackenberg's book gives children permission to experience prayer as daily conversation with God. The freshness and honesty of her own prayers and her helpful prompts invite them to find and value their ownwords as offerings to a God who wants to be in relationship with them."
