"Heart to Heart" by Rachel Starr Thomson is now available!

Rachel Starr Thomson’s powerful devotional Heart to Heart: Meeting With God in the Lord’s Prayer is now available for purchase from Little Dozen Press!

Bestselling author Michael Phillips says of Heart to Heart that “It’s not merely a job well done, though it is that, it is truly a significant contribution to the devotional literature on the Lord's Prayer. I thought it was one of the best things on the Lord's Prayer I have read--not a study or an exposition, but a true devotional experience based on Jesus' prayer.”

Rachel Starr Thomson is a homeschool graduate and author whose devotional writings have grown out of a rich experience as one of God’s people. Through ezines, blogs, and articles, her writings have encouraged and challenged readers all over the world. At the core of Heart to Heart is the understanding that Jesus did not teach us to pray a magic formula, but a prayer full of insight into the Father that will draw us into deeper relationship with Him. It is ideal reading for individual quiet times or for study groups.

Heart to Heart is available for $13.95 plus shipping from the publisher at, OR order from Amazon or!

How many times have you prayed “The Lord’s Prayer” without giving it much thought? Sadly, I know I’ve been guilty of sometimes just repeating the well-known words in church along with everyone else. After reading through Heart to Heart: Meeting with God in the Lord’s Prayer, I will never again view this simple but powerful prayer in the same light. In this lovely little volume, Rachel Starr Thomson shares from her heart the lessons she has gleaned through studying and praying the Lord’s Prayer. You will be touched, inspired, and encouraged through her poignant personal reflections, compelling analogies, and challenging words of wisdom.” - Crystal Paine, of

Phrase by phrase, sometimes word by word, the author moves through the Lord's prayer, meditating on the meanings, the significance, the relationship between God and believer in Christ as revealed in this short but powerful prayer. The book begins in the Garden of Eden, touches on the lives of familiar figures in the Bible, and calls us to make an honest evaluation of our own lives and walk with God.

I must admit that this is a book I've had to read during that quiet early-morning time while the children are asleep. More than once I've been moved to tears in the reading. But I've also taken away from the reading rich morsels of food for thought to chew on, and these have sparked discussion later in the day. When I finished the book, I put it on our eldest daughter's reading pile for her devotional time, and I look forward to hearing her insights.

This is a book I'll return to, the next time life gets over-busy and my prayers seem dry and profitless. Heart to Heart is something like a drink of cool, refreshing water in a parched and thirsty land.” - Jean Hall, reviewer, Eclectic Homeschool Online (

Hey, congratulations! Is there a link where people can check out your book (say, Amazon or something like that)?

You have inspired me to continue with a few writing projects of my own.

In answer to your question, we live in Northeastern Brazil, the state of Ceara--about eight hours southwest of the city of Fortalez, if that is any help.
