Guided Prayers for Back-to-School with Dr. Melanie Dobson - Episode No. 69

In this episode of Means of Grace, Dr. Melanie Dobson joins us again to share a series of visualization prayers for adults and children during another stressful back to school season for families. Over the course of the pandemic, we’ve shared several guided mediations and prayers to continue to support your spiritual and mental health and they’ve been some of our most listened-to episodes. You can revisit some of these episodes here and here and here. Our prayer is informed by this one from St. Thomas Aquinas:

Melanie is an ordained elder in the Western North Carolina Conference and an assistant professor of Methodist Studies and Director of the Spiritual Direction Certification Program at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, SC. She is also a registered yoga teacher and a trained spiritual director in both group and individual settings. She enjoys hiking, cycling, cooking, and being outdoors. She is a single mom to one son, Elijah.
