(March 2020) As the world is reeling from the coronavirus pandemic, one customer is thinking of his prayer life. He ordered a custom set of prayer beads so that he could pray the seven petitions of the Lord's Prayer, as described by Martin Luther in the Small Catechism. The design incorporated amber beads he sent in, making this a truly personal design. Have an idea for a custom set of prayer beads? Let us know!
(Dec 2019) The Pearls are usually offered as a contemplative practice for adults, but they are also very appropriate for young people.
