As a modern liturgist, Kayla brings her heart of a poet and passion of a prophet to her writing.


In her new book Every Season Sacred, Kayla invites parents to consider gentle contemplative rhythms as they engage in connecting with God, themselves, their families, and their communties.


As a mother to four wild, wonderful, and complex children, Kayla very much understands the joys and heartaches that come with raising compassionate, connected kids in a complicated world.

what people are saying
About Kayla's writing

Kayla Craig gives a spiritual shorthand to grownups who long to have more meaningful, divine connection within their family’s day-to-day but can barely fit it in among jerseys to wash, paperwork to sign, meals to prepare, and all the other detritus that seems to fill our days.

Co-Host of The Bible Binge
Few voices I've come across do the work of demystifying not only spiritual matters but also the sometimes overwhelming world of parenting. This book, like so much of Kayla's work, meets me in both places, providing pathways of language and imagery that help place me in my own secret and everyday life.
Justin McRoberts
Author of Sacred Strides
I’ve so often prayed Kayla Craig’s words over my life, family, home, and community that the books have become dog-eared companions by now. In this new book of prayers and blessings, she gives us language for the nuance, delight, tragedy, and beauty of being alive right now.
