The letters that make up the classic Christian work known as “The Practice of the Presence of God” date back to the 17th century, yet they resonate with the struggles facing believers today. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for a modern-day mom to connect with the daily life of the Carmelite monk who wrote them, and thus they miss out on a transformative experience. The Practice of the Presence of God for Modern-day Moms is a new translation of the letters from French, with the addition of companion letters written from the perspective of a modern-day mom.

“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.

    Translating a monk’s thoughts into Megan’s own biographical account shows we can take and apply God’s unchanging truths to our messy lives in any century. The concrete practices for intimate relationship with our Savior are teased out in a way that challenges the reader to consider if her own biography is pleasing to the Lord, wherever he has placed her.
