Grace for the Contemplative Pa

A Practical Guide for Mothers Practicing the Presence of God
Sons of Thunder Publications

We are excited to announce a much anticipated book from Lily Crowder. Based on Brother Lawrence's classic Practice of the Presence of God, this new book is geared for real-time moms whose lives are full of dirty diapers and soccer practice. Don't have luxurious hours of quiet time like a 17th century monk? You are not missing out. The gospel awakens us to the very real presence of Christ in our everyday, seemingly "mundane" state of affairs.

Full of practical, down-to-earth, real-life examples and wisdom from a mother of four, Lily draws readers to the simple awareness of God's presence in the day-to-day role of parenting. Experience fulfillment of a Holy Spirit saturated life in the midst of doing laundry! Realizing the grace of the gospel and our effortless union with Christ enables mothers to enjoy and rest secure in their spirituality. Religion-free parenting. Letting go of guilt and shame. It's all found in the finished work of the cross.
