Publishers Description In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.

Dreaded Underbeds Mar 1, 2001
The story of Tucker is identifable to most all children and especially those sleeping alone in thier own bedroom. The Underbed is an engrossing tale of a child who is certain there is something under his bed. He also has a child-like faith that his Mom will believe him and give him the comfort he needs. The story is well written and the illistrations are exceptional. The expressions and actions of Tucker and his mother are natural and realistic. The colorful pictures are detailed even down to the lace on the pillow case. Even the "underbed" creature is beleivable and strangly cute. I have loved this book from the begining even before it was in print because my son(s) and I were the models for the boy "Tucker" and his mother. The house and furnishings were mine as well as all the clothing worn. My boys are now 17 and 19 years old and still wear Superman T-shirts to school and to college(Tucker wears superman pj's). Some things are just too much fun to give up (like superman) and this book is one of them.
