“Once for all, here and now, this light will break on you if you
lift up your eyes and behold Jesus Christ with the spiritual vision of the soul.
– The Way of the Sevenfold Secret

We are pleased to announce that our Lilias Trotter-inspired Advent devotional, Light of Life:  Advent Meditations, by Miriam Huffman Rockness, is now available for purchase in book form on Amazon!  Due to increased interest over the years, we have taken our PDF version of this book – which has been offered to view and print from our website in previous years and as a spiral-bound copy last year – and created a professionally designed book. Thus, this final published version is the culmination of several years of refining.

The back cover text best captures not only the content of this book, but the slant this book brings that may be a draw to those who love the art and writings of Lilias Trotter:

Take a breath and allow this Advent devotional to help you focus on Christ during this busy pre-Christmas season. Following common Advent themes, each week addresses a particular aspect of the unfolding story of Jesus in anticipation of His birth: the prophets who foretold Christ’s coming; Bethlehem, where Christ was born; the shepherds who first witnessed the Christ child; the angels who heralded the Incarnation—culminating with the birth of Christ, the Light of the world.

Each daily devotional starts with a painting and quotation by Lilias Trotter, followed by related Scripture with several thought/discussion questions and a meditation, including. a featured “Moment with Lilias.” A final a “heart-song” or hymn lyric captures the essence of each daily topic. The devotionals gradually build a comprehensive picture of the “Grand Miracle,” much like a jigsaw puzzle, taking shape with each added piece.

A glance inside . . . 



With the wealth of available Advent resources, you might ask: why one more?  We hope the above glimpses in both words and images will help you decide for yourself if this is something that might speak to you – or a friend – as you enter this season of preparation for the celebration of the coming of Christ.
