The Practice of the Presence of God: The Original 17th Century Letters and Conversations of Brother Lawrence
This little book was an eye opener for me. Brother Lawrence clearly states how we as God's creatures should understand and relate to our Creator. And, how we relate to Him defines our earthly lives. Brother Lawrence speaks from his own experience and his strong but simple faith in God. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a clear explanation of man's relationship to a God who ...

Practicing God's Presence: Brother Lawrence for Today's Reader
Deep enough to change your thinking.
This book attracted my attention immediately. I've heard of Brother Lawrence for twenty years, but each time I read a piece by him, I bogged down in the archaic language. Elmer takes the meat of Brother Lawrence's philosophy/religious tenets and puts them in words I can relate to. I intend to read this small volume several times. The first time was rewarding, but the material is so rich, it ...

Light reading with a heavy message.
This book is easy reading. The words are easy to understand, and the concepts behind the words that Bro. Lawrence is trying to convey are easy to understand, from a strictly cognitive point of view. But, to give these words life by putting them into action is not so easy. Like surgery, anyone can read textbooks on the subject, but putting it to effective use takes guidance, practice and time. ...

Rock 'n roll for kids and parents!
I have all of Sandra Boynton's CD books, and we listen to them in the car and just laugh and laugh. We particularly love Philadelphia Chicken (the first one we received as a gift when my daughter was a toddler), but Dog Train is now our new favorite as the kids are now starting elementary school. This is definitely rock n' roll and faster then the fun swing-style music of Philadelphia Chicken. ...
