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!

"Some authors and teachers are well-informed, diligent students and, therefore, can dispense good information. Then there are those who have actually fleshed out the teaching, put their theories to the test until they are proven, and are now laced with wisdom. These are the leaders who can say with genuine authority, 'Here's what works.' Mary Jo has mixed the ingredients, kneaded the dough, seasoned it with experience, and baked the bread. You can trust her."
