"My first year of motherhood I lost prayer..."
I lost early mornings of quiet, mornings in my pajamas with a Bible in my lap, mornings when I spoke my mind's chaos into God's ear and let the chaos come back ordered, holy sealed. I lost peace. I lost clarity and certitude. My faith was never perfect before my son was born, but somewhere in that first year, somewhere in my distraction and exhaustion, I lost the Spirit-life I had known. I blamed myself.

I read Micha's words and my breathing slows. She gives perspective. And hope. And a refreshing lightness to not take what doesn't matter too seriously. She revives: When you order the tangle of your days around Him, He untangles you. She moves: The moments all matter. The daily awareness of the small add up to the whole of your life, and her words are like a dawn, stirring you to wake and walk.
I read Micha Boyett's journey into prayer as any blackbelt sinner will, by which I mean anybody will-with sheer delight at her graceful language and riveting struggle for a hard-won faith. In a sense Found is a deep, sweet invitation into God's loving presence. A must read for nonbelievers and believers alike.
-Mary Karr, poet and best-selling author of The Liars' Club and Lit
With this beautiful book, Micha Boyett opens a door to Benedictine spirituality through which regular, busy people can enter and taste, see, smell, hear, and feel what it means to live life as a prayer.
-Rachel Held Evans, author of A Year of Biblical Womanhood
Micha is singing the longings of all the tired mother pilgrims. Every word is like motherhood: elegant, earthy, loving, and present.
-Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist
For anyone who's ever gotten prayer all tangled up in performance-this one's for you.
-Addie Zierman, author of When We Were on Fire
If you're like me, you've grown weary of a culture that demands the sensationalistic, the glamorous, the extraordinary. Micha Boyett is in search for the beauty in the everyday, the prayer that hides itself in dinners and diapers and naps. She is as skilled of a tour guide for Benedictine spirituality as she is for her own story, and in these pages you will find that the sacred has been there all along.
-Adam S. McHugh, author of Introverts in the Church
