ISBN-13: 9780819222305



These days, everyone seems to race through the day multi-tasking at breakneck speed, with no time for quiet prayer. Author Barbara Bartocci was frustrated by this fact-until she realized an important truth: Every single task is potentially holy if we do it with a holy intent. And that's the premise of Grace on the Go. This book offers quick, imaginative ways to help busy people make prayer an integral part of their days.

Part One contains short reflections from real life, designed to lead the reader into a few minutes of quiet meditative prayer, offering a brief "step of holy action" to incorporate into an ordinary day. Part Two offers ways to turn a single minute-from drive time to lunch time-into a prayerful encounter with God.

Barbara Bartocci is the popular author of religious books, including the Morehouse Grace on the Go series, and a frequent contributor to major consumer magazines, including Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day, and Reader's Digest. She is also a public relations consultant and a motivational speaker. She lives in Kansas.
