The response to our Prayer Workshop in The Upper Room has been phenomenal! I have been so amazed and humbled by it. We have had record visits to our blog (almost 1,000 each day), fielded a vast number of comments and questions about prayer beads, and handled an unprecedented number of sales in our Etsy shop. Wow! I am thrilled with your excitement about prayer beads, and joyful about your interest in finding ways to go deeper in your relationship with God. I spent today feeling exceedingly grateful to God for all of these blessings!
The only drawback to all of this is that we have not been able to keep up with the demand for prayer beads in our Etsy store! While we are thrilled with the increase in sales we are sorry that we have not been able to keep our store as well-stocked as we usually do. We can assure you that we are knee-deep in beads and are working on new designs every evening. In addition, I will be attending a bead show this weekend where I will have the chance to buy lots and lots of new beads (heaven!). I promise to have new designs posted to our shop by this Monday.
Thanks for your patience and – again – for your excitement!
