“Anyone with a box of colors and some paper can have a conversation with God.” In her original Praying in Color, teacher, dancer and self-proclaimed non-artist, Sybil MacBeth, introduced adults to a form of purposeful doodling that serves as a means of prayer. As the author herself discovered after years of struggling with her own prayer life, this approach makes the practice of prayer accessible to those who have a hard time focusing, don’t always know how to pray, or who simply can’t sit still. With this colorful and inviting edition, MacBeth has found her natural audience. In a voice addressed to children, this workbook can be used independently by children or it can serve as a workshop participant guide.
