During Lent, we strive to free ourselves from all kinds of clutter—material and spiritual—in order to focus on God and turn back to him with our whole hearts. If this “turning back” is genuine, it will be a reorientation, a transformation. To help us enter into this season, Amy Ekeh guides readers in exploring three key moments in the life and ministry of Jesus. The result will be a better understanding of the authentic transformation that God calls each of us to embrace as individuals and as a community and a renewed desire to live God’s own outward-looking, self-emptying, laying-down-one’s-life kind of love.

Lent: Season of Transformation is a title in the new Alive in the Word series published by Little Rock Scripture Study and Liturgical Press . Each slim volume offers three brief but powerful lessons that help you reflect on your own life and experience in relationship with Scripture. Prayer and action are fully integrated.

Advent means arrival or coming. During this sacred season, we actively recall the arrival of Jesus as the Word made flesh, and we joyfully await his final return at the end of the age. But as we remember the past and anticipate the future, we are also attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God “arrives” in our everyday lives. Amy Ekeh’s Advent, Season of Divine Encounter helps us look closely at three key Scripture passages to recall, recognize, and anticipate the ways God comes into our lives and our world. Now available for pre-order. Publication date: April 15, 2018.

What others are saying....

“Amy Ekeh writes one of the best liturgy-centered blogs, as this collection bears witness. Column after column she finds surprising stories that anchor her insights to the real world as well as to the church calendar. And did I mention that she has a sense of humor? If you get the paper edition, put it in a handy location. And if you read the e-book edition, it will be just a few clicks away.” – Jim Forest, author of biographies of Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton and Daniel Berrigan

“Beadwork is done by selecting the appropriate colors and shapes, having in mind a final look that will make a necklace or bracelet. It’s a fine craft to create a piece that is beautiful and timeless. In this book, Amy Ekeh proves that she knows how to select just the right colors and shapes of the spiritual life, stringing them together to make a fitting gift. Her sources are liturgy, family life, Scripture, ministry, even the radio! She’s perfected the art of finding beauty and humor and, therefore, finding God.” – Cackie (Catherine) Upchurch, Director, Little Rock Scripture Study


That Mighty Heart includes the best of Amy Ekeh’s blog from 2014. Fifty short reflections are great prayer-starters or opportunities for spiritual refreshment anytime you have a few minutes in your day.

What others are saying....

“Amy has a unique and balanced approach to our Catholic faith. The spiritual guidance found here is practical, insightful and weaves itself throughout your day. I have often felt the Holy Spirit in her gentle, non-judging voice and recommend this book to those looking to deepen their experience of God in daily living.” -- Jeanne Canavan, Assistant Principal, St. Mary's Catholic School, Virginia

"Amy's reflections are inspirational, as she allows everyday moments to remind her of God's grace and presence, through her lenses as mother, wife, friend and professional, and then she beautifully weaves words and images that remain with me for hours and sometimes days at a time." -- W.C. “Burr” Datz, Director, Catholic Campus Ministry, Washington & Lee University and Virginia Military Institute
