Sacramento, California (PressExposure) April 17, 2008 -- Make bedtime fun while laying a biblical foundation. Bedtime Blessings Biblical Meditation CD helps children fall to sleep knowing that they are cared for and loved by God.
The CD begins by guiding children through a fun and progressive relaxation exercise to relax their bodies and minds. Children are asked to point their toes, squeeze their hands in a ball, smash their legs into their beds, and count backwards to ten. Following the relaxation portion on the CD, children learn about God's love for them, their significance and purpose, being kind, forgiveness, and other biblical principles, as they fall off to sleep. The Bedtime Blessings CD is also a great naptime resource for Christian preschools and daycares, said Jones.
In addition to the bedtime meditation, the CD includes 22 minutes of Christian affirmations for children with such positive statements as, "I am special to God," "God created me and I am here for a purpose," and "I am kind to others because they are God's children too." The affirmations can be played while children sleep, work, or play.
Author Rhonda Jones, creator of the award-winner website The Christian Meditator, produced the CD out of a desire to help her grandson fall to sleep and saturate him with positive messages about Christ. "If children can get Christian principles in their minds and hearts early in life, it will help to build their self-esteem, spirituality, and understanding of God," stated Jones.
Several years ago, according to Jones, her 4-year-old niece cried nightly before bedtime. She told her mother there were monsters in her room. This had gone on for six months. "My sister was frustrated and at a loss of what to do," said Jones. Jones prayed for any unclean spirits to leave the house and gave her niece an angel who would watch over her at night. Immediately, the nighttime frights stopped. "I hope parents can use the Bedtime Blessing Meditation CD to calm children's fears about bedtime and let them know they are loved and protected as well,' said the author.
