Discover a Life Beyond the Noise

We live frantic, busy lives that distract us from seeing and
hearing God. With more than thirty years of ministry experience,
Halstead will show you how to center your life on God through
the practice of contemplative prayer. For centuries, Christians
have sought to release the reins of control and to enjoy a more
vulnerable, intimate life with God. They have adopted new
postures in prayer to become more receptive to God’s agenda
and leading. They have learned best practices for yielding their
minds and hearts to God and new ways to allow Scripture to
speak into their lives. This deep, rich relationship with God
through prayer is available to all who seek God.

Leaning into God’s Embrace is a guide for those who are
beginners with contemplative prayer. Halstead offers an
insightful collection of prayer forms to center your mind in a
posture of listening. She also includes easy-to-use templates that
leaders can use with groups seeking to explore these new ways
of being with God. Her variety of prayer forms allows readers to
discover how they can lean into God’s loving embrace.
