What do you do?

I write, teach, and lead retreats on Christian Spiritual Formation and blog at www.salvationlife.com.

This book accompanies an experiential retreat on prayer in which I introduce participants to historic practices of prayer through the means of praying with other people's words, praying without words, and praying with their own words.

Target Audience

What is your industry?


Describe the target audience for your print design

Adults open to spirituality from a Christian perspective

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your print design?

1. Eye-catching and Inviting: That the cover would catch the eye and convey an invitation, like something they would want to read with coffee by a fireplace rather than read as a textbook.

2. Spiritual: It can have a particularly Christian symbol or not, but something that communicates openness to living a spiritual life. It's okay, but not necessary, to convey something that is old, since the methods discussed in the book have been around a long time, yet are being presented in new ways.

3. Not wimpy :): In light of the first two items, keep in mind that the cover should appeal to sincere spiritual seekers of both genders.
