I think this is a book which will prove to be a very useful tool for grandparents and parents as they focus on praying for their grandchildren/children . . . but, then I did write it, so it is possible my opinion would tend towards the "biased" side!
So, today I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the opinions of people who read my book before it was released . . .
“There is nothing more important Christian grandparents can do than to pray daily for their grandchildren. And what better way to pray than to pray through God’s prayer book, the Psalms. Whenever you pray Scripture back to God, you can be assured you are praying for His will to be done. Deeper In is a wonderful resource for all of us grandparents who want to pray more effectively for our grandkids.”
Wayne Rice - Dad of three, Grandpa of five; Co-founder of Youth Specialties, Director of Conferences for the Legacy Coalition, & Author of Generation to Generation
"Lynda Freeman has written an invaluable book which every grandparent and parent will benefit from. Deeper In provides an easy-to-grasp method of praying the words of Scripture for the children you love, as it is saturated with God's word, centered on the cross, and sure to help you develop a habit of praying for your child or grandchild. Lynda's simple, yet profound method has the potential to transform your prayer life and the lives of children."
Josh Mulvihill - Dad of five; Director of Resources Legacy Coalition, & Pastor of Children & Families Grace Church“This is a fantastic resource. With easy to follow instructions, this book creates an environment where grandparents – and parents - can actively and regularly pray for their grandchildren /children. I am excited to see generations change as a result of investing in this rich spiritual discipline.”
Matthew Guevara - Dad of four; Executive Director of International Network of Children’s Ministry“Lynda Freeman is a prayer warrior, firmly grounded in her love for Christ. Coupling her passion for God’s Word with her commitment to prayer, she has constructed this remarkable step-by-step guide for praying the Psalms.The structure of this devotion is simple and user friendly. One passage of Scripture is assigned per week. This allows God’s Word to marinate as He reveals His message to the reader. The questions and prayer which accompany each passage are insightful; at times challenging.In a world muddied by lies, half-truths at best, it is imperative parents and grandparents return to their knees. We need to implore God to save the hearts of our children, grandchildren and future generations. Lynda Freeman offers a simple, but profound guide to help her readers accomplish this goal. She says it best with the following words: ‘Praying is not a last resort, it is our everyday plan.’”

As a grandparent of five wonderful grandchildren, this book has encouraged me to ‘dig deeper’ for their sake and His Glory.”Jim Dahl - Dad of two, Grandpa of five; Children’s Pastor at Neighborhood Church, Pastor at Cow Creek Community Church, & Regional Liaison Manager for the California Board of Equalization“This new book from Lynda Freeman is an excellent tool to help grandparents and parents grow in their own walk, so they can lead the children they love further into the truths found in the Bible!
