The Practice of the Presence of God for Modern-Day Moms

Available now!

You may well be familiar with the letters written by Brother Lawrence that became the piece of classic Christian literature "The Practice of the Presence of God." Despite the fact that these letters date back to the 17th century, they resonate with so many of the struggles facing believers today. Unfortunately, I think it is difficult for a modern-day mom to connect with the daily life of a Carmelite monk, and thus they miss out on a transformative experience. Along with a new translation of the original material, this book also includes a companion letter written from the perspective of a mother.

About the Book

“One need not cry out very loudly; He is nearer to us than we think.”
-Brother Lawrence, the 6th letter concerning the practice of the presence of God.-

Brother Lawrence is well-known for his letters and interviews concerning the practice of the presence of God in the midst of mundane, tedious tasks. But he was a 17th century Carmelite monk in Paris—could his insights apply to the unique challenges of modern motherhood? His daily experience as a lay brother in a monastery is as far removed from the reality of diapers and juggling school schedules as can likely be imagined, yet his words have inspired generations of believers to examine how and when they experience God’s presence.

This new translation of his letters from the original French includes companion letters from the perspective of a modern-day mom, searching for sanctuary in the midst of everyday life. Through this discourse and the accompanying journaling questions, you’ll find encouragement and authenticity about trying to live out a vibrant faith in the chaos of raising children in a fast-paced world.

Be challenged to seek His presence, not only in the laundry room and the midnight nursing sessions, but in every breathing moment.

Put life in your faith, and grace in your life.
