Jennifer Lopez’s Daughter to Publish Children’s Book About the Power of Prayer
By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Jennifer Lopez’s 12-year-old daughter, Emme Muñiz, will publish a children’s book about the power of prayer titled Lord Help Me.
“In school I learned about sloths and how they’re facing extinction, so I began to pray for them in my nightly prayers,” Muñiz said. “I wrote this book to help raise money to save sloths while also teaching other children how we can pray and ask for help — two things that bring me a lot of comfort.”
Lord Help Me will release in September 2020 and is illustrated by Brenda Figueroa.

Penguin Random House described the young author this way:
Emme Muñiz is a fun-loving, creative, and joyful twelve-year-old. She enjoys singing, cross-country running, and all forms of art, and is dedicated to protecting sloths and other wildlife. Emme is the daughter of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, and she loves to spend time with her friends and family, especially her dog Lady. Her passion for prayer started when she was five years old. It is one of Emme’s dreams to share this passion with the world.
As for Muñiz’s legacy of faith, her mega-famous mom is a professed Catholic.
In the fall of 2019, Lopez said she and fiancé A-Rod “reconnected” with their faith while in Israel.
