When Jennifer Polimino’s son was born with severe breathing problems, the medical staff whisked him out of the delivery room to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She called after her husband, Don’t let him out of your sight!” and then was left behind. All she could do was cry out to God, a situation that set her on a path of prayer, committed to take her precious son before God’s throne in every circumstance. Each year, as her son grows older, she has found new opportunities to pray for him and herself. In Praying Through Your Child’s Early Years, Jennifer and her coauthor, Carolyn, share with moms how to meet the challenges and joys of motherhood by turning to God in all things.
Praying Through Your Child’s Early Years has been nominated for a 2013 Christian Retailing's Best Award.

Praying Through Your Child’s Early Years recognizes the demanding nature of motherhood. As moms, we are often so busy meeting the needs of those around us that we forget to take care of ourselves. Jennifer uses her personal experience and professional training to offer practical, realistic ways for new moms to care for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Although it takes time, and sometimes feels selfish, taking care of ourselves helps us to be better moms for our kids. - Alexandra Kuykendall, Content Editor, MOPS International, Author of The Artist’s Daughter
