Widely considered to be our most effective national voice for children, Children’s Defense Fund president and founder Marian Wright Edelman is also an eloquent and passionate writer. In this anthology of personal prayers and meditations, Edelman offers encouragement and guidance to anyone striving to instill the values of faith, integrity, and service in today’s children. At a time when such ideals are threatened by commercialism, greed, and violence, these meditations and prayers provide a lasting and invaluable resource—one that readers will turn to again and again. Harper.
“A wonderfully warm, poignant and truly touching and attractive anthology by a passionate advocate of the rights of children to love, security, and affirmation.”
—The Most Reverend Desmond M. Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate “Marian Edelman blends gospel passages with her own personal prayers and her reverence for the young brings a depth to this book that goes well beyond words.” —Los Angeles Times
