Keep the prayer book that you have made and use it yourself. Do not toss it in the trash.
Later on, you might want to type out your favorite prayers, save it on your computer, then print it out.
You can illustrate it, add holy cards, take it to a copy shop and have them laminate it and bind it.
The copy shop can even make colored copies of your illustrations and the holy cards to embellish your prayer book.
That is what I did. In this way, you can make more copies for your family-to-be, and if pages are torn or worn from
continual use, you can easily replace individual pages or replace the prayer book.
Prayer books, holy illustrations, and holy cards that have become damaged and unusable
should be burned or buried, never tossed into the trash.
