Prayer Pencils

If you are reading my blog, you probably know that I am super excited to have two tween devos coming out in October 2014. The devos engage kids in doodling. Now we are getting to the pencil part of this post.

For some time I have been sending out pencils with info. about the devos. To date, I have distributed about 2,000 pencils to people in the publishing industry, children's ministry workers, writers, influencers, and tweens (those in church programs and those in Christian schools). Am I promoting the devos? Sure. But there is so much more to the pencils. I think of them as prayer pencils.

Everyone who has one of the pencils represents a group for whom I am praying. Many are still working on the book (as it nears release); many will jot notes to spread the word (either on paper or digitally through emails and social media); and many are the 9-12 year olds who will actually use the books in their own quiet times (doodling their thoughts and life applications).

The pencils are a reminder to me of an upcoming celebration, but they are also a kind of prayer list. Will you join me in praying for these devos?

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17 (NIV) 

If you are reading this post and would like to receive pencils for yourself, a children's ministry group, or a Christian school, please email me at -- There is no cost for them.
