It is also an introduction to the series in case a reader gets their hands on it and is intrigued by some of the selections.My husband and I were introduced to Mitford when they first came out by a leader in a Mom's Time Out or Mothers of Preschoolers group I attended. The leader raved about the book and being an avid bookworm I had to check it out. Back then they had Christian bookstores around every corner just about and online wasn't a thing. Now you don't even have to get dressed to find your favorite bookseller online, type in BATHED IN PRAYER and buy a copy for the serious Mitford fan on your Christmas gift. They will be all squeally happy as my teen daughter would say. Truly a book that needs to be added to the Mitford shelf in a fan's library. Or the public library. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

    I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I love the Mitford series by Jan Karon. Visiting Mitford is like visiting family - at times dysfunctional, but deep down, always filled with love. Having a book that has all of Father TIm's prayers, sermons, and reflections in one place is a dream come true. It was like a visit back through all the best parts of the series and definitely makes me want to re-read the series once again, looking deeper I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway and while it wasn't exactly what I was looking for it was and later on will be very enjoyable when I need a quick visit to Mitford. The author highlights each of the Mitford books by starting with the first At Home In Mitford and summarizes the books and then she goes through some of the more touching chapters in each book. If you haven't read all of the Mitford series there will be spoilers in the summaries and chapters that follow.

    I love this little gem of a book that I won from Goodreads Firstreads. I have read all of Jan Karon's Mitford and Father Tim books, but it has been a while. I had forgotten just how wonderful a writer she is. I was happy to spend time with all my favorite characters again and I think that I will have to reread the books all over again! I usually give away my books when I have finished them, but I am keeping this one for myself! It's a nice size to tuck in a purse or keep nearby to reread passage I love this little gem of a book that I won from Goodreads Firstreads.

It would also make a great stocking stuffer .

    I have loved the stories and characters in the Mitford series for a long time now and am thrilled to have this one now in my collection. What a wealth of wisdom and Spirit is in its pages. I especially loved the author’s story at the beginning about how she created the character of Father Tim. Thank you to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I’ve long wished for a gathered collection of the devotions and prayers found in each of Jan Karon’s Father Tim books and Bathed In Prayer is just that. The title could not be more perfect as with each reading an imperfect soul feels a little cleaner and resets one’s thoughts on the right track. This can be read in one sitting or treated like a daily devotional. However you read it, the rewards will be great.

    This was a wonderful and quick read. I loved being able to visit Mitford again, even if it was only for a short time. I will take any chance I can to spend more time with these beloved characters. This is a perfect addition to the Mitford series, but do not read this if you haven’t read the series yet, as there are spoilers.In addition to the material from the Mitford books, Jan Karon reflects on her writing career and personal life.

I love reading about other people’s faith journey and how they became as strong in their faith as they are.I recommend this book to anyone who, like me, isn’t ready to let Father Tim and the rest of the Mitford crew go quite yet. This book is a must have addition to any Mitford collection.*I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.*

    I so enjoyed reading Jan Karon’s newest book, Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. However, reading it was poignant.The book highlights Father Tim Kavanagh’s and Jan Karon’s favorite verses and excerpts. The compilation will bring you to laughter, tears and to your knees, as you reminisce, reflect and ponder over the selections.Karon’s Forward gives us a brief glimpse into her life.

In addition, there are insights into how Father Kavanagh and the wonderful town of Mitford came into being.I also enjoyed the rich weaving of Bible verses, prayers and famous quotes woven throughout the book. I particularly liked one quote. I was reminded to pray for those who seem to be cantankerous and nasty, as Matthew 5:44 (KJV) commands, “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…” The quotation in the book was by William Law. It reads, “There is nothing that makes us love someone so much as praying for them.”A more fitting commemorative and celebratory memorial could not have been written, and thankfully, Karon is the one who wrote it.There are two sections titled acknowledgments. Be sure to read both, as one has interesting tidbits about how a character came into being.Thank you so very much to G.P. Putnam’s Sons/ Penguin Random House for the opportunity to read and review this beautiful, albeit bittersweet, mosaic of stories. I was not required to write a review. However, I was happy to write one.If I could, I would give it more than 5 Stars!!“Thanks for the free/gifted book, @Putnambooks”
