And excellent resource for private devotional time and time with family and friends. I love looking through it before any major event and particularly enjoy the litergy for enjoying coffee in the morning. Even if there is no "quiet of morning" in my house with 4 children it helps to quiet my mind to focus on my time with God.
This book would make an excellent gift for many, but I also have enjoyed just the beauty it possesses in imagery and words.
An incredibly beautiful book. The gold embossing, the illustrations, the acknowledgement of such ordinary holiness is wonderful! I would say that some liturgies went on a little bit, but I liked that some of them also had shorter versions to choose from. I think I may annoy my friends when I show up with a liturgy for EVERY occasion, but hopefully in the long run they'll thank me 🤪.
Giving to two of my wonderful students for graduation with notations for favorite prayers.
This is a lovely book - the liturgies are poetic and there are so many different prayers for all different occasions. I got this to give as a gift but ended up looking through it myself before giving it and am tempted to buy myself a copy as well! I opted for the smaller size and really like it - the pages feel nice, the soft cover gives without feeling flimsy, and as weird as it may sound it's just a pleasant experience holding the book.
I collect prayer books of various groups and have enjoyed reading through some of the language used in this one. It is dense - as in heavy but also FILLED TO THE BRIM with words of gratefulness, words that allow questioning, and directions that allow plenty to continue in thought.
Jan Richardson is one of the wonderful voices of calm and reason amongst the chaos. I picked up nearly everything of hers during the pandemic and have found that her prayers, even in times where I am flustered bring a sense of calm.
This book is particularly beautiful in its printing and communicates a great sense of depth in understanding who God is through words and art.
This little book is the perfect guide to more intentional prayer throughout the day. A wonderful resource!
This is no bigger than a wallet, but carries the ability to provide moments of rest and pause, but also words to provide comfort and inspiration.
