     Heaven in Ordinary: Contemplative Prayer in Everyday Life

      The search for a contemplative life should not be restricted to those who have 'time' to do it: it can be found in day-to-day living. 
      In this popular book, Angela Ashwin explores the means of realising her goal.

      This is Angela's first book, which came out in 1985. It is still in print and available from McCrimmons.

      Paperback / Size A5 / 96 pages / Price: £4.95.

    Prayer in the Shadows: Bringing Everyday Hurts, Guilt and Fears into Prayer

  

 
In this book Angela addresses those times when it is hard to pray, perhaps because of harsh
and worrying circumstances.  She explores ways in which our pain and our concern for the world's
suffering can, themselves, become the raw material for prayer, in the love of the crucified and
risen Christ.
 
Prayer is not an escape from the shadows - it is a way of facing them with God.
