Product Description

Interactive and experiential journal introducing prayer practices to teenagers. Space for teenagers to record their own thoughts on the practice and to read what other people have said Ideal confirmation gift Fresh, contemporary design.

This book is based on a blog run by Revd Miranda Threlfall-Holmes and her teenage son, Noah, Miranda and Noah developed the blog and book as they could find nothing on the market to introduce teenagers to different ways of praying.

Each chapter of the book introduces a prayer practice, e.g using labyrinths, Lego Bible modelling, prayer beads, prayer walking.

It also includes comments by teenagers who have tried it out and plenty of space for the young person to record their own thoughts.

Each experiment is divided into 4 parts:

  1. An introduction to the prayer idea being suggested and the context of the tradition
  2. The experiment - how to do it and what you need
  3. Space for notes on how it went/ what you thought
  4. Notes from other teens who have tried out the experiment and their thoughts about it

Packed full of experiments in prayer this is a resource to get stuck into and try for yourself.

MIranda and Noah Threlfall-Holmes are a mum and son based in Durham, in north-east England.

Noah is 13 years old, and attends Durham Johnston Comprehensive School in Durham. A laid-back character, he proudly describes himself as a bit of a nerd. He enjoys video games, especially playing online with friends; reading books by authors such as Charlie Higson and Philip Reeve, Manga graphic novels, and playing Pokemon.

A Scout patrol leader, he is particularly skilled at map reading and navigating. His favourite subjects at school are Geography and Mandarin. For the past four years, he has been a regular at the CPAS 'Stagefright' venture week, exploring faith through drama, and he also enjoys attending Greenbelt and the 'Totally Awesome Youth Club' of St Mary Magdalene Church, Belmont.

Miranda is 41 years old, and is vicar of St Mary Magdalene Church, Belmont, and St Laurence, Pittington. She is not a laid-back character, she first worked in brand management and was then a historian before ordination, and holds first-class degrees in history from Cambridge and theology from Durham, and a PhD in medieval monastic history.

Her publications include The Essential History of Christianity (SPCK), Being a Chaplain (SPCK, 2011), Monks and Markets: Durham Cathedral Priory, 1460-1520 (OUP, 2005), poems and articles in the church and popular press. She trained for ministry at Cranmer Hall, Durham, served her title at St Gabriel, Heaton in the Newcastle diocese, and was Chaplain of University College Durham and Interim Principle of Ustinov College, Durham, before taking up her current post in 2012.

She has been a member of the Church of England's General Synod and Vice-Chair of Women and the Church (WATCH).

She enjoys felting, reading murder mysteries and Regency romances (and trying to write a murder mystery), and gardening. She has been married to Phil, a chemical engineer, for 18 years, and they have three children, of whom Noah is the eldest.
