“Just as Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way showed the hardened Harvard businessman he had a creative artist lurking within, MacBeth makes it astonishingly clear that anyone with a box of colors and some paper can have a conversation with God.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review 

Maybe you love color. Maybe you are a visual or kinesthetic learner, a distractible or impatient soul, or a word-weary pray-er. Perhaps you struggle with a short attention span, a restless body, or a tendency to live in your head. Maybe your prayers feel more like a list for Santa Claus than a love letter to God, or you’re just bored with the same old prayers you’ve said since you were a toddler. Maybe you’re not sure that anyone out there is listening, or you just feel deep in your bones a hunger to know God better. 

The prayer practice Praying in Color® was born when Sybil's desperation to pray for family and friends intersected with her love of color and doodling. Praying in Color® invites the whole body into prayer and gives you a new way to be with God.
