My 88-year old mother loves to read and is saddened by the fact that her vision is failing. She loves to read mysteries, biographies, non-fiction and religious works.
She would often take one of her favorite small prayer booklets with her to read while she was hospitalized or while she was waiting in the doctor's office.
I bought this book for her before Christmas, uncertain that it would be something she would like.
She loves it! The large type enables her to read with very little eyestrain. She reads it often at home and brings it with her to Church. The slimness of the book is one of its attractions. The cover is beautiful and is durable.
It is one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon, and I have made many wonderful purchases here.
This has the prayers we know and love and a few new ones to help us with our private conversations with the Lord. It helps me get started and if things go a little more informal after that, well, that is between me and the Lord. For those of us shyer, this prayer book gives a start on the dialogue.
