A Bead and a Prayer is one of the most accessible and downright delightful books I have ever read on prayer itself, not to mention being far and away the most informative about the making and use of prayer beads. Vincent has given us a veritable treasure trove of history, practical counsel, and, most important, loving instruction. --Phyllis Tickle, founder of religion department, Publishers Weekly and prolific author on religion/spirituality, including "The Divine Hours" series
A Bead and a Prayer engages our God-given senses of touch and sight to coax prayer from the head deep into the heart. A groundbreaking book even for those of us who don't have a clue how to string beads. Vincent's encouragement and instructions have convinced this novice-artist that even I can do it! This is a must-read for anyone on an intentional journey to God. --Linda Douty, Spiritual director, retreat leader, author of Praying in the Messiness of Life

Using Vincent's model, my craft-er daughter made a set of "manly" beads (hey, I'm old-fashioned, so sue me) of wood and ceramic beads on a leather strap. And I was delighted with the product, and with Vincent's coaching. The first time that I used the beads that I designed (see accompanying photo), I prayed for 25 minutes, completely focused on prayer, and not once mentally wandering off to create another to-do list.
If you find that you have difficulty in engaging in prayer, give Vincent's book a read, and the beads a try.
Her book is well written with lot of good ideas for the purchase of prayer beads and making your own. That is a great concept for a individuals or a group to pursue as a project. In fact she has good outline for a class on prayer beads with well thought out study questions. I am currently teaching a class on Anglican Prayer Beads and using Kristen's book as a resource. I highly recommend A Bead and Prayer.
I plan on putting together a program series for the teens in our church so they can make their own then work through the devotional.
