Ep. 12 : A Prayer for Growing Pains

 As parents, we experience the paradox of time: the long days and short years as our children go from newborns to teenagers seemingly overnight. Fo r this episode, we’re offering a prayer for growing up, for us to embrace whatever season of parenting we’re in and for our children to know that our arms are always open and welcoming to them.  You can check out Liturgies for Parents on Instagram for more prayers and encouragement and pick up your own copy of To Light Their Way wherever books are sold. For glimpses of Kayla’s experiences with parenting and faith, find her on Instagram at @kayla_craig. Read More

About Liturgies for Parents with Kayla Craig

Don’t have the words to pray? Now you do. If you're like most parents, you're exhausted. Prayer feels out of reach. But you're not alone.

With short, welcoming episodes, Liturgies for Parents invites parents like you to take a breath and find comfort in the prayers of another. Each week, you'll hear some scripture, a short prayer, and a gentle reminder of God's presence in your life from Kayla Craig, a mom of four and author of To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers & Liturgies for Parents.

In a weary world, Liturgies for Parents offers a nuanced and nurturing moment of reprieve, inviting all who are raising kids to breathe and remember that God is with you. Liturgies for Parents will leave you feeling a bit more centered -- and a bit more rooted in God's big love for you, your family, and your neighbors, too.
