Julie Cicora is an avid knitter who believes in the power of prayer. After being ordained an Episcopal priest, Julie began studying prayer which lead to her first book All I Can Do is Pray, about her hospital chaplaincy. She started a contemplative prayer practice which she found difficult to sustain until she combined it with knitting. Knitting opened the door to a daily prayer practice for Julie and other knitters who participated in Julie's Lenten knit-along. This led to her second book, Contemplative Knitting.
Julie lives in upstate New York on Lake Ontario with her husband and afghan hound. Outside of work, she likes to ride her motorcycle, windsurf, knit, write and visit her five sons and twelve grandchildren.
