Pauses – Mountains

Because Mountain-Top Experiences Don’t Have to Stay in the Mountains…

If you long to engage the presence of God in fresh, creative ways while on vacation, “Pauses for the Vacationing Soul” is for you.

This one-week devotion guide is specifically designed for your mountain vacation, whether you’re escaping to enjoy alone time, a weekend getaway with the girlfriends, or sharing your vacation with the entire family. Cathy Baker encourages you to embrace all God has for your vacation by focusing on Him through what you see, taste, smell, touch, and hear.

I was delighted when Cathy asked me to write the foreword for her newest Pauses devotional. For me, Cathy has always been a spiritual giant. Her foundational insight and application of the Word bring light to the dark places in our lives. Yet she shares God’s truth with gentle joy. I can understand why people flock to sit under her teaching—me included. Now I get to share her with you.

Pauses for the Vacationing Soul: A Sensory Based Devotional Guide for the Mountains strikes a chord deep within my soul. I love vacationing in different locales, but the mountains are where I flee for solace when the world presses in. Just like Cathy, I’m never without my journal and my camera as I try to capture the peaceful essence of God’s creation and bring it home with me.

Through this book, Cathy weaves a meditative journey that will enhance anyone’s trip. Her introduction of God’s Word brings the majesty of His mountains to life through a biblical perspective. Her insight on how to apply the verses she shares is life changing. But what I like best are her observations of who God is.

Each day, this devotional leads us to ponder one of God’s attributes in the context of His mountains. Along with prayers and gentle suggestions of things to do to enhance your intimacy with God and His creation, she weaves her own stories and personal observations.

This gem of a book is one that will become dog-eared with loving use. I know I’ll never again travel up the mountain without it by my side.

Asking God for help isn’t a sign of weakness, but rather a mark of wisdom.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people both now and forever more. Psalm 125:2

The mountains have played an integral part in Your story, God. And in mine.

Restoring lives is God’s love language.

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” John Muir
