What People are Saying About This
"Sacred Chaos is a sacred gem. I have long been a fan of Tricia Rhodes's writing, but this is her best work yet, her tour de force of real-life spirituality. It is eminently practical, while grappling seriously with the demands of everyday life. It is chock-full of arresting images; Tricia makes spiritual truth seem very vivid. She has mastered the art of making the mundane serve the cause of the marvelous and even the miraculous. Your life can find room for a growing and rich relationship with God; this book will show you how."
Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and Sacred Pathways
"Tricia Rhodes's walk of faith is a well-paced pilgrimage. You will find counsel enough in these pages to bleed the hassle from all frantic discipleship. And the soul at the center of your hurriedness will be a soul at rest, for you will have found that gentle pace that tells the world it will be good for them to be around you, for you have walked the edges of her wisdom."
Calvin Miller, author of The Singer and The Path of Celtic Prayer
"God is in the bedlam, and Tricia opens access to the hidden sacred moments of our jam-packed lives. With short, honest, hope-filled chapters and solid, doable application, Sacred Chaos makes it possible to live in God's presence, day after crowded day."
Jane Rubietta, speaker and author of Resting Place and Come Closer
