This app is an extension of the book: Practicing God’s Presence: A Thirty-Day Adventure by Michell & Diane Cook. Even though it stands alone without the book, it is best used by reading the book first and then activating the app. The app corresponds to the devotional reading of that day in the book
Their book is based on the book The Practice of the Presence of God: The Best Rule of a Holy Life by Father Joseph de Beaufort. That book is about Brother Lawrence who was an ordinary and unlearned man without the education necessary to qualify as a priest. Despite his modest position, his reputation for experiencing profound peace drew people to him for spiritual guidance including priests from great distances. The Cooks wrote their book to present a helpful tool to use as a short devotional. They have taken one hundred and fifty tips from Brother Lawrence and present five of them plus two scriptures to you each day to integrate into your life. You are encouraged to do this for thirty days while you go about your daily tasks, just like Brother Lawrence prayed while going about his daily tasks.
If you follow the process of this book by responding to these tip reminders and interact with God throughout your day, it will absolutely transform your relationship with God. You will learn how to abide in Him through being aware of His presence in your everyday tasks. It will revolutionize your way of living. Your communion and intimacy with God will increase past what you thought possible. How can you be sure this is true? Many others have led the way with their lives transformed. This is a lost art awaiting your personal discovery. Applying yourself for just 30 days will instill these principles into your heart, never to be lost.
