A children’s version of The Practice of the Presence of God The Grumpy Monk is the story of Brother Lawrence, a French monk who lived in the Middle Ages. Brother Lawrence was a grumpy monk, until he learned the secret of weaving salvation, praise, and gratefulness to God into every moment of every day. Available in softcover and soon in e-book format.
I have read this to Gracie a few times and she sits there and listens so carefully. Sometimes she asks questions and I try to answer her to the best of my ability. I love how the book is so gentle, but filled with truth. It's really a good book for adults also. It states the simple truth ~ in all things we do, God is with us. He can change so that we are happy doing those things we might not like to do, such as laundry and dishes. :) Ok, so that ones for me. For Gracie it would be cleaning her room. We're still working on that, but I keep on reading 'The Grumpy Monk' to her with the hope she will see that we should just do things without fussing and know that no matter how we feel it is important. As the inside of the book states ~ Do all things without murmurings and disputings. Philippians 2:14
