{PRE-ORDER} A Lamp & A Light: A Lectio Divina Journal for Kids


*We sold out! But pre-orders are open. More journals will arrive the first part of May!*

Teach your children how to pray with Scripture the way the Church has done for centuries.

Lectio divina is an ancient practice rooted in the early Church. The purpose is to pray with Scripture, allowing the Lord to speak to us through His Word. This is the method employed by saints throughout the history of the Church! 

We made this lectio divina journal for kids ages 8-18. Each spread walks the child through the four movements of lectio divina:

  • Lectio (Reading)
  • Meditatio (Meditation)
  • Oratio (Prayer)
  • Contemplatio (Contemplation)

With intentional, repetitive prompting questions, the child will build the habit of prayerful reflection on the Word of God.

We provide 40 carefully-selected Scripture passages for them that engage the imagination and lend themselves well to this prayer. Then, we leave them 20 blank pages for them to select their own Scripture passage with which to pray! 

The journal is meant for boys and girls. It has a dark navy, vegan leather cover, thick interior pages that stand up to pens and highlighters, and a satin gold ribbon for place holding.

It is the perfect meaningful Christmas, birthday, or Confirmation gift!

Great gift of a teen

This is a great book to give to a teen to help them with Lectio Divina. It has a high quality cover and a ribbon to mark your place. More beautiful than I thought it would be.

Hi Rachel! Thank you for the kind words!
Praise the Lord!

A Wonderful Personal Prayer Tool for Kids!

Thank you, Into the Deep, for designing such a thoughtful, beautiful, and well made prayer journal. I have been looking for a guided way to introduce my 9 year-old daughter to personal prayer with the Scriptures, and this has been the perfect resource. I came downstairs the other morning and found her sitting at the kitchen table, deep in prayer, thinking and praying with her journal and her favorite Bible. What a gift it is that she is learning Lectio Divina at this age! Thank you for working with the Holy Spirit to make this possible! It also came beautifully packaged, which added to the joy and anticipation of opening a new way to encounter the Lord. Having the physical reminder of this journal has helped us carve out more time for prayer. Thank you!

Hi Elizabeth! Thank you for your review! I am so happy that the Lectio Devina Journal is working so well for your daughter! Praise the Lord!
