About the Author

Karin Holsinger Sherman holds a Master's Degree in Christian Spirituality and a Certificate of Spiritual Direction. She has worked in environmental education and advocacy, and in the broad field of children's ministry.

"Candle Walk: A Bedtime Prayer to God, written and illustrated by Karen Holsinger Sherman, prepares kids for sleep by taking them on a walk through the woods and inviting them to experience the Compline, a centuries-old practice of contemplative evening prayer."
--Publisher's Weekly"For centuries, adults have used Compline as a way of examining their day and preparing themselves for sleep. Candle Walk introduces children to this tradition with words and pictures that calm the soul and draw the reader into sleep. Sharing this story-prayer will bring parent and child closer to each other and closer to God. This is a book to share again and again as part of the bedtime routine.
--Mary Hawes, National Children & Youth Adviser for the Church of England"Candle Walk: A Bedtime Prayer to God helps bring to children the beauty of the ancient services that make the hours of the day holy. Author and illustrator Karin Holsinger has created a book that gently teaches gratitude for the day that has passed, and awakens us to the beauty of the night, all as a gift of God to us. Let us hope that this is the first of a series of books by this gifted illustrator and author that will introduce yet more of the riches of traditional worship to children and their families today."
--Bishop Marc Andrus, Episcopal Diocese of California"Candle Walk is a valuable addition to your bedtime bookshelf. With lyrical images and words, it is a centering prayer for families as they prepare their children for sleep."
--Anna V. Ostenso Moore, author of Today is a Baptism Day"Parent, theologian, and English village dweller, Karin Holsinger Sherman, makes bedtime prayer come alive! With elegant simplicity she remixes the ancient service of Compline into a visual masterpiece that children of all ages can experience with wonder and delight."
--Lisa Kimball, Ph.D., Associate Dean of Lifelong Learning, Professor, Christian Formation & Congregational Leadership at Virginia Theological Seminary"My daughter Samantha and I have enjoyed this book immensely, reading it to close out the day. It helps us imaginatively and prayerfully offer the whole of our day and our neighborhood to God as we prepare for bed. Our copy has been well read, well prayed, and well loved!"
--The Rev. Jason A. Fout, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Anglican Theology at Bexley Seabury Seminary Federation"With whimsy and warmth, Candle Walk creates a wonderful way to introduce young children to a historic bedtime ritual that illuminates God's peace, protection, and love. What a gift for parents desiring to instill wonder, trust, and a Compline practice that offers guidance for a lifetime."
--Linda Lawrence Hunt, The Krista Foundation for Global Citizenship
