Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections Collected from the Beloved Mitford Series

Bathed in Prayer



All of us who love the Mitford Series are excited about this book. The series of 14 novels brings you into the lives of the people who live in Mitford. The main character is Father Tim, an Episcopal Priest.  In this book, we can read his prayers, sermons and his favorite passages that make up who he is. The people of Mitford also give us some advice. Ms. Karon even allows us a look at her own faith.

I know this is not a book, but my friend and a well known lady from Farmerville, Doris Kennedy, highly recommends it. She received one as a Christmas gift. At first she thought she would not like it, but it didn’t take long to change her mind.

“It asks what’s on your mind and I have to say it’s this instant pot pressure cooker son John gave me for Christmas. I have enjoyed it so much. At first I was intimidated by it. Then decided to just dive in. Beef stew is just delicious and quick. Country style pork ribs the same. So tender on both meats. My next thing will be rice and beans. I Love Love Love it!!!”
