Saying grace is an ancient and vital tradition the world over. It provides a moment of stillness before enjoying the meal, and a spiritual connection with your loved ones. You may choose to start your meals with a traditional Islamic blessing, an Aztec prayer, or a saint's grace. Before your gathering, simply open the Book of Blessings to choose a grace to celebrate life, love, family, laughter, or the food you are about to enjoy. Whether you're a master at giving the dinner table blessing, or fairly new at this sacred tradition, Book of Blessings will provide a grace to complement every occasion.
