Think back to when you were growing up... who introduced, developed and strengthened your Catholic faith? 

What about the kids in your life?  How will they become interested in learning about and developing their faith?

It's my hope that Aquinas Kids, a fun and cool prayer book designed  can help you bring your Catholic faith to the kids that you love and care about.  

I need your support and prayers to help us create and launch this fun, cool prayer book.With your interest and financial support, my friend Marty Whitmore and I will be working hard to get this full-color, hardcover book designed, printed, and delivered by August 2014.

The funds that we raise will go to illustrate, design, and print the book… from concept to completion. Although we’re currently just in the conceptual design stages, we’ve already spent a considerable amount of time to get the project to this point and we can already tell that it’s going to be a rewarding challenge.

What are some of the prayers you can expect to find in this collection of Catholic prayers?  Here’s a partial list of the prayers and illustrations we will be including in the final version of Aquinas Kids:

Traditional Prayers

  • Our Father
  • Hail Mary
  • Glory Be
  • Hail Holy Queen
  • The Rosary
  • Memorare
  • St. Francis
  • St. Thérèse de Lisieux
  • St. Jude
  • St. Patrick/Irish Blessing
  • Virgin of Guadalupe
  • Guardian Angel Prayer

Other Important Pieces

  • Liturgical Calendar
  • 7 Sacraments
  • Stations of the Cross
  • The Last Supper
  • The Nicene Creed

Risks and challenges

The three main tasks of completing this book project once it is funded are 1. design/layout, 2. book printing, and 3. order fulfillment.

Tom and Marty have worked together on numerous projects over the past couple years and they collaborate together very effectively and efficiently. On top of that, they are both extremely detailed business owners who are committed to making and keeping realistic goals. The three main challenges associated with this project don't stand a chance when Tom and Marty tackle them!
