    First published in French in 1692, The Practice of the Presence of God is a classic for everyone who has a heart that is hungry for more of God - whose "soul thirsts for God, for the living God".

    Amid his pots and pans, the author, Brother Lawrence, became so noted for his serenity and joy while he worked at the most menial kitchen tasks that cardinals and theologians came to see him to learn his secret. Even the pope of his day is said to have visited him.

    Overall

    This book is a collection of Brother Lawrence's journals and letters and things written about him. If you are expecting a 'how to book' on learning techniques to come into the presence of God, this is not for you. It's more of a collection of sayings and proverbs and accolades about the faith of the lowly monk. I enjoyed it but I wish I would have actually read it and not listened to it. Part two suddenly cuts off into part three. It was hard to track with in audio format. Of course it was written in 1692 by Monks so maybe I'm just not cerebral enough to have enjoyed it.

    The best-selling author of The Five Love Languages series has written a book EVERYONE should listen to! Once you discover your primary love language in human relationships, you can assume that will be your primary love language in your relationship with God. Whether we are speaking to God or He is speaking to us - we are feeling God's love and presence most strongly in one particular way.

    "New Ground"
    Overall

    While I am a fan of Gary Chapman and use his "Language of Love for Kids" as the foundation for my parenting, I have long felt that most of the "Language of Love" books cover the same ground. It feels like once you've read one you get the gist of them all. I think that this is definitely new ground. Although the author briefly goes over each gift for the newbie to the series, most of the time is spent on how God relates to us in each gift. I felt closer to God and had a new appreciation of the ways He is showing that He loves me after listening. I would definitely recommend this book if you feel like you want to explore the ways God is tangibly working your life.
