About More of God

“Betsy de Cruz helps distracted girls like me discover do-able strategies for Bible study. I loved the hands-on ideas to help me move from “dullsville” to “delight” by spending just 5 to 15 minutes a day in the Word. I will be taking a personal mini-retreat soon with my colored pencils and new prayer journal to create my prayer map. This book is a treasure, and I plan on sharing its practical wisdom with all my girlfriends.”

“Though Betsy de Cruz and I have never met or lived in the same city, we are sisters in the same spiritual sorority. As a kid she wanted to be a nun; I wanted to be a monk. As adults we both hunger for quiet time and a closer relationship with God. But family-life, lengthy to-do lists, and short attention spans continue to vie for center stage. In her confessional, humorous, and wise book More of God: A Distracted Woman’s Guide to More Meaningful Quiet Times, Betsy offers distracted soul sisters practical and accessible ways to return God to the center of our lives.
