About the author (2012)

Jeanie Gushee, a published poet, holds a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from the College of William and Mary. Collecting prayers for her own morning and evening devotions, Jeanie felt her personal prayers often lacked breadth, depth, beauty, and unselfishness. After having filled multiple notebooks with prayers over the course of seven years, she realized she could perhaps help others by turning her prayer collection into a devotional book.

Gushee is Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics at Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia.
