About: Kristen Vincent
- I'm trying - I really am - to listen; to be still and know that God is the GREAT I AM. It is my deepest desire. But I am a work in progress. As part of this journey, I own Prayerworks Studio. We specialize in making handcrafted tools for everyday prayer, particularly Protestant prayer beads. I love to create new designs, write, and lead retreats on prayer and prayer tools. I am also the author of the award-winning book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner's Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads. I have a Master of Theological Studies from Duke Divinity School and have completed The Upper Room's two-year Academy for Spiritual Formation. Even better, I'm married to Max, a United Methodist pastor, and together we have a high-spirited ten-year-old son named Matthew. They, too, are helping me to be still and focus on what matters most. Thanks be to God.
