Eleven-year old Bella tries to pray every day in a special place all her own. Her heart is full of love, but her prayers are interrupted by daydreams, worries, and a younger sister. What is she to do?
This story beckons the young reader to join Bella at her prayer corner and learn how to persevere in prayer. Talking to God and, especially, listening to him requires patience. In this sweet story, Bella's faithfulness in overcoming distractions is richly rewarded.
