Introducing: Janie Reynolds Illustration

My dear friend, fine artist Janie Reynolds (Whitelock), has just put up a new website featuring her work. Janie is an incredible talent, who was trained at the prestigious Royal College of Art and has since gone on to work for a wide range of well known clients such as Habitat, The National Trust, Good Housekeeping, Marks & Spencer – as well as illustrating a number of natural history books.

She is married to my other dear friend Chris Whitelock, who heads up Vineyard Records UK. They’ve been such a gift to me personally through the past number of years, along with their little guys Harry and Jack, and it’s my privilege to introduce you to some of Janie’s work. Janie is open to doing freelance illustration work these days, especially focused on nature and animals. Her portfolio is stunning.

Pay her a visit if you would, and leave a comment on her site.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
