What in the world does baking bread have to do with a life of prayer?
Using something as seemingly ordinary as baking bread, God taught me a whole new way to worship, pray, and enjoy His presence. He showed me how to stay connected to Him through healthy rhythms of work and rest, and He made my home a joyful house of prayer. And I realized, this isn't just for me to experience—it's for you, too.
I'm delighted to share with you how God graciously revealed the sacred ingredients that, when mixed together, helped me develop and nurture an intentional life of prayer. Within these pages, you will discover practical and powerful ways to cultivate an environment to meet with God every day.
Be blessed, dear friend, as the Lord refreshes you with His Presence. Lean in and let your prayers rise! — Mary Jo
