Kelly’s new book, Designed to Pray: Creative Ways to Engage with God, reminds us that our conversations with God can be as fun and creative as he is. Whether you’ve been praying for a long time or are just beginning to enter in, this eight-week adventure from Kelly O’Dell Stanley will infuse passion and creativity into your communication with God. Filled with daily interactive activities—everything from coloring pages to writing prompts to doodling—you’ll find space to let go of fear and expectations and discover what it means to engage with the One who loves you.
Designed to Pray offers an innovative way to start viewing God, the world around you, and your faith with a new perspective. Because when you pray, you’re nurturing a relationship with God. It’s what you were designed to do.
Kelly O’Dell Stanley is a graphic designer, writer, and author of Praying Upside Down: A creative prayer experience to transform your time with God and Designed to Pray: Creative Ways to Engage with God. Her book is the junction of all of her passions—faith, art, and writing. With more than two decades of experience in advertising, three kids ranging from teens to young adult, and a husband of more than two decades, she’s learned to look at life in unconventional ways—sometimes even upside down.
A regular monthly contributor to Internet Café Devotions, Kelly’s work has appeared in several publications, and her awards include first place in Inspirational Writing in the 2013 Writer’s Digest competition. Her design work has been included in design anthologies and in PRINT Magazine‘s Design Annual, and she’s received design awards from the NAHB, Public Relations Society of America, the Webby Competition, and Art Directors Club of Indiana.
Kelly lives in Crawfordsville, Indiana, where she has lunch with friends, coffee with her iPad, and spends any otherwise-unscheduled evenings on the couch with her husband—though those evenings don’t come as often as she’d like. She is full of doubt and full of faith, constantly seeking new ways to see what’s happening all around her. You may connect with her on her blog, www.kellyostanley.com, on Facebook (Kelly O’Dell Stanley, Author), or on Twitter (@kellyostanley).
