a worker’s prayer:
on what we’re making and how we’re making it

‘a worker’s prayer’ seeks to begin conversation about work’s place in our lives through artist’s letters and essays, book reviews, interviews, and experience.  so many of us devote most of our days to work, but how many of us fulfill the commandment: “whatever you do, do it wholeheartedly, as unto the lord” or consistently give our work to god, knowing that “whether we live therefore, or die, we are the lord’s?”  deanna’s blog desires to be a forum where people of faith can encourage each other toward these goals.

deanna boulard lives in louisville, and delights in windows, bach, and marmalade.  she has her mfa from the university of maryland and worked as a language assistant in southern france.  Sometimes she has flashbacks of her favorite views, which make it hard to see what’s in front of her.  she would like to live every day aware that “the present is the point at which time touches eternity.”
