wedding gifts & baby gifts

Many years ago I started making afgans for wedding shower gifts along with baby blankets and outfits for baby showers for all my dear freinds and family, and now their children. Everyone kept telling me that it was my minstry. But I had never heard of the "Prayer Shawl Ministry" until one day while looking through one of the catalogs that I receive for yarns and crafts and there was your book on the ministry. I ordered it and upon reading it I realized that I had been truely doing a ministry all along. Thank you for publishing this book. I have always prayed for the person whom I was crocheting for while making their project but now with a little more intensity. Also the card templets on this site and the prayers contained in the book have added greatly to beauty of the finished blanket or shawl. In the past month and half I have made 2 baby blankets, one full size afgan, and one trianglar prayers shawl for a peprson moving. God is truely blessing my hands since receiving this book and confirming my work as a true minisrty of LOVE. GOD's Blessings to You. Mary A. Sluss, West Virginia
