Since the beginning of time, mothers and fathers have calmed children at night with gentle music. With A Child's Prayer, LDS children will internalize gospel messages as they fall asleep at night. Familiar Primary songs teach children about the plan of salvation. Soothing arrangements help children calm down and prepare to go to sleep. Use at bedtime, naptime, or even on a Sunday morning to calm children as they prepare for church. With beautiful voices and instruments of well-known LDS music artists, A Child's Prayer is perfect for any family with little children.
All of my children have listened to this cd as babies through about age 5+. It's relaxing and the music is lovely. I wouldn't do without it, it's a part of our family!
A few of my children have enjoyed falling to sleep to this CD. I am trying to find a christmas version or something new as this one is loved but so familiar now.
These are beautiful versions of Primary songs. Our whole family loves to listen to them any time of day (not just for bedtime). I highly recommend this peaceful music.
This is the best CD ever! I use it every night for my daughter's bed time. I love the songs and how they're sung. Very calming.
My 5-yr. old was having bad dreams almost every night. In trying to find something to help her with this, I decided to put a CD player in her room and play lullaby music while she went to sleep. I already had this CD, but hadn't listened to it since my 2-yr. old was a baby. I put it in, and it worked like a charm! Both my 5-yr. old and my 3-yr. old (who share a room) settle down at night much more quickly now and it truly eliminated the "bad dreams" problem! I am so thankful for this gentle, beautiful music. My two girls now *make sure* I turn it on for them every night after being tucked into bed. They love it, and so do I.
I received this as a gift at a baby shower three years ago and all of my kids go to sleep to it. My son doesn't like going to sleep without it, or other bedtime music. Now the CD I have is scratched and starts skipping on a song, so I need to buy a new one, but I absolutely love it and recommend it to anyone looking for a good, relaxing, uplifting bedtime CD, it just brings a wonderful spirit into our home when we are going to sleep.
I love listening to this is the car. It is very calming. It is great to calm everyone down. My daughter's favorite song is, "A Child's Prayer". She is disappointed that that is one of the few songs on this CD that is only instrumental. She would like to have a great voice version, too.
My cousin and his wife's 6 month-old son Jacob, passed away from a birth defect. A family member gave them this CD when he died. My cousin used the songs from this album on a memorial video he made to play at the funeral. These songs touched the hearts of all who heard them.
Any time I hear this album I think of Jacob and the life he had and lived. His birth defect caused severe problems and he had to have many surgeries. He never left the NICU, he never got to go home. Although he couldn't even breath on his own, every time I was near him, I could tell that he KNEW Heavenly Father loved him. He was happy just to have a body, even though nothing worked properly.
This album reminds me that no matter what trials or situations Heavenly Father gives me in life, He still knows and loves me!
I was given this cd as a gift when I had my first child. I love it. The renditions of the children's songs are beautiful.
I loved this music so much I have it on my ipod and listen to it at work. It is very soothing to the mind, and sole. My children enjoy it.
This is a very beautiful collection
This CD is a beautiful collection of primary songs; the singer is soothing and very relaxing. I use it to put my kids to bed at night, and even though I can't be sure if it helps them sleep, it certainly brings a good spirit in the home.
I absolutely love this CD, and so do my kids, ages 6 and 3. They've learned the words to some of the songs (studies show you can learn lyrics and lines even while sleeping), and the music is so soothing and relaxing that it always helps them relax much faster at bedtime than they used to. I would recommend this to anyone with a baby or older!!!
This is one of our favorite CDs.
These may be lullabies but it is such peaceful music. If I want to feel the Spirit all I have to do is put in this CD. Love it! One of my children, 12 yr old boy, sometimes has a hard time going to sleep. I put this in a CD player for him and it helps him relax. Just don't tell his friends! Great background music for Sunday i.e. if things are hectic around your house when getting ready for church. I've had this on when we're getting ready and things were more peaceful.
I LOVE this CD. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants something soft playing in the background when your child is awake or getting ready to nod off to sleep. Creates a clam environment and my 4 month old completely relaxes when I have it on. LOVE IT!
We received this as a gift about a year ago and it has since become a cherished bedtime cd. The choice of songs are excellent and it's one childrens cd that even I don't get tired of hearing. The ethereal music and beautiful voices are so comforting.
We really enjoy this CD. There is a good variety of styles which is really nice (ex. a couple of songs sound like country music). It is calming and soothing, and it relaxes our baby boy before bed or naptime. We play this CD back-to-back with Lullabies of Jesus by composers Melanie and Roger Hoffman which is longer and costs less.
I listened to the sound clips online and was SO excited to hear the whole CD. It shipped super fast and was so worth every dime. The music is slow and relaxing, the Spirit is present. My 3 year old daughter saw the picture on the CD and her eyes sparkled, she wanted to listen to it right away...this was 8 a.m. I came up to check on her 20 minutes later - she was asleep on the couch! Love the music choice, the voice talent, when is the sequel coming out?
Since my daughter was born, she has been listening to music. We had a CD that she listened to every night and it finally wore out. I happened to see this one day and ordered it right away. She has been listening to it every night when she goes to sleep and Sunday mornings. We both love it. It makes her feel safe at night and it calms her down.
