One night, a friend of mine tweeted the tiniest of prayers: Dear Lord, please help me get my shit together. It went viral.
Through a series of trials, revelations, situations, and many, many tiny prayers, this friend curated a following of friends and fans who she prayed for, prayed with, and preached to in the most real of Twitter sermons.
The first time I went to a blogging conference by myself, I had myself that I would try to meet as many people as I could. I wouldn’t find a “crew” and I would make sure to choose a different table to sit at during each one of the sessions.

In one of the sessions, I sat at a table with writer and photographer, Raegan Mathis. I met and networked with a lot of bloggers that weekend, and eventually, we ended up at several of the same brunch meetups around Washington, DC. It was at one of these brunches that, as she tells it, she decided that “we gone be friends.”
Fast forward a few years, many brunches, shows for her photography, installations of her work, and collaborations – she has hit yet another milestone. She has published her first book, the Book of Tiny Prayers.

Some of you saw me break down on Instagram when I got my advance reader copy of the book. I thought I was going to be fine, but to have a whole book where someone is praying for YOU. I wasn’t ready. The book FEELS good in my hands. It is heavy. It begs to be written in. And, of course, the cover is absolutely beautiful because it has one of Rae’s phenomenal photos on it.
It’s a book, a prayer journal, a devotional, and most of all – it is real.
