Pawz and Pray


 Short Reflections about God, life, and the Dogs I love!

PAWZ AND PRAYDogs are a powerful image of devotion- man’s best friend, loyal, faithful, always eager to please the one whom they adore. Is it possible to have this type of relationship with God, to sit at His feet, completely enthralled in His presence and attentive to His will? 

Pawz and Pray invites you to do just that, for there is no greater joy than to spend time in the presence of a loving Master – ask a dog, he’ll agree!

“St. Francis of Assisi preached that it was the duty of mankind to protect and enjoy nature as both stewards of God’s creation and as creatures themselves. In Pawz and Pray Leila Grandemange shares both her devotion to dogs and her love of God in a warm tapestry of observations, narratives, quotations and biblical extracts. She illustrates so clearly how sharing love and caring for animals can be so richly rewarding, enhancing the lives of both ourselves and our beloved pets. Beautifully illustrated, this is indeed a trove of profound inspiration.”

– Dennis Homes, author, musician, dog breeder

“Leila’s book has been a true inspiration to me. It makes you focus on what’s really important in life. The author gives us great examples on how we can have a closer walk with God by following the lead that our pets give us in their everyday life. “Pawz and Pray” encourages us to put our worry and anxiety aside and take time to enjoy the things God has put right in front of us. This book has touched my heart in an indescribable way. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves animals and wants to have a closer connection to our Heavenly Father.”

– Holly Cornwell, Editor 2007 – June 2014, The Royal Spaniels
