Carefully crafted and sensitive to the feelings and emotions of others, Bentley lays a foundation for reflection, prayer, and conversation for parents or caregivers in the midst of caring for a child.  Bentley writes from personal experience with his own son and often reminds readers that to be the best caregiver to their child they must also care for themselves.  Without a measure of self-care, and silence, one could lose focus due to distraction or exhaustion. 

Each of the 28 days of prayer include a meditation accompanied by scripture verses, a prayer, and a suggestion for a daily activity, which ranges from remembering a verse as a mantra from the day or finding time for personal Sabbath.
