Brother Lawrence, a 17th century French monk, learned to practice the presence of God at all times. This book is a collection of documented conversations and letters that reveal the heart of this humble man, and show how each of us can learn to be mindful of God's presence in every facet of our lives. He wrote: "The time of business does not with me differ from the time of prayer, and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen...I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were upon my knees at the blessed sacrament."
