Mommy Diaries: Grace’s Window
Grace’s Window is a book written by a former priest of mine, the Chaplain of the Episcopal Church at Cornell, Suzanne Guthrie. Suzanne has been the single greatest Christian influence in my life. I picked up this book when I graduated (2005) and am JUST reading it now.
The full title is “Grace’s Window: Entering the Seasons of Prayer”
The back of the book says this:
“Suzanne Guthrie teaches us about the seasons of prayer by letting us enter her own. In these forty meditations from Advent through Pentecost, she weaves together her mystical wareness of the presence of God and the experiences of childhood and childbirth, ministry and housekeeping, summer firestorms and family life, suffering and dying. For Guthrie, ordinary life is a window of grace into the holy, where nothing is wasted because everything teaches us the art of prayer.”
As I read I will share paragraphs and quotes (some will be religious and some will be good no matter who you are!). It’s a Mommy Diaries Bookclub, if you will 😉
