Publishers Description
Your attention, please. That's what God wants, Leighton Ford discovered. It's the path to becoming like Christ. Distractions, fear and busyness were keeping Ford from seeing God's work in and around him. He was missing God. So he began a journey of longing and looking for God. And it started with paying attention. In these pages, he invites you to journey with him. Using the rich monastic tradition of praying the hours, Ford will walk with you, helping you pay attention to God's work in you and around you throughout each day and in different seasons of your life. If you're busy, distracted, rushing through each day, you might be feeling disconnected from God, unable to see how he's working. You might be missing him. But the way toward him starts with a pause and a prayer with intention and attention and becomes a way of life, awake and alive to the peaceful, powerful presence of God."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Slow Down, Connect with God, Move Forward  Jan 22, 2009
Leighton Ford writes with rare honesty and clarity as he approaches the task of spiritual formation. Less "how to" and more "why" --- this book shows all of us how to cease from our multi-tasking, overcommitted work and world, centering ourselves in God's holy presence.

Less is more. Less noise, less hurry, less programs. More contemplative time, more quiet time, more time in the Word. Ford writes especially for those in later seasons of life, yet his advice is practical and helpful for the "fast-laners" who are still climbing ladders at 30 or 40.

Carefully crafted; a great read for a quiet evening or a vacation spent being, rather than doing. All meat, no fluff, filled with wisdom.

Refreshing  Jan 18, 2009
It is so refreshing to read a book that embraces both the Evangelical tradition as well as the spiritual tradition of praying the hours. In this book, Leighton Ford invites Christians from all traditions to embrace a spiritually rich prayer life which will draw us closer to God. Using his own faith journey, Leighton shares how he has been blessed to combine the best of his Evangelical theology with the practice of prayer that some may have never explored. Leighton has been enriched and so will be the reader.
The Attentive Life  Jan 11, 2009
I appreciated the reminder to be attentive to the movement of God's Spirit in our lives as well as being attentive to my loved ones and the people with whom I come into contact each day. I also appreciated the author sharing his faith journey at different part of the book. I had heard of Leighton Ford, but never read any of his writings. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
Wonderful, warm, spiritual, memorable book.  Oct 18, 2008
I was given this book by a lady very much older than me who is still discovering life every day (I am 61). The man who led me to the Lord is a friend of Leighton Ford and I have met Leighton Ford some years ago. This book became better and better as the chapters progressed. I also read it slower and slower as I neared the end. Since I am an evangelical Pastor and Bible Teacher I was suspicious at first of Leighton's attendance at a monastery. But I need not have worried. If you are young read the chapters past your time of life with anticipation. But since I am closer to the end than the beginning I was emotionally and spiritually moved by the chapters closer to the close of the book. I can only say that this book has drawn me closer to Christ and made me more determined to slow down but keep moving - to pay attention but keep learning and to long for heaven but keep living on earth. I wish I could go for a walk with Leighton to the top of Grand Father mountain. I can only thank God for a life still being well lived and a book that has lifted my soul toward eternity.
a true guide for a life of attentiveness  Sep 22, 2008
Insightful, practical, and inspiring message that encourages one to truly "pay attention" in both our spiritual and our secular lives. It is well written and understandable. I will reread this book and strive to use it in my daily walk.
