Paul McManus has studied religion, philosophy and self-development for over 30 years. He has coupled his learning with inspiration from his life experience and family to create the 7 Great Prayers with his wife Tracey. Professionally, Paul began his career in advertising and business and followed the American dream of creating a better life for his family of five. He became the president of the U.S. division of a small international software company in 1998.
Life was good for the McManus family until the dot-com bubble burst. The company folded. Paul lost his job and his home. He and Tracey struggled to make ends meet. Always spiritual, Paul and Tracey found themselves praying more and more for guidance and support during those difficult times. As material possessions slipped away, they prayed and gave thanks for what they did have. They wrote the 7 Great Prayers to bring strength and solace to their family. Filled with new hope, Paul began a mission to share these prayers and teach people of all faiths and nationalities how to tap into the power of God and the power of the mind to live life to its best and fullest through the 7 Great Prayers.
Tracey McManus is a teacher’s assistant and works with elementary school children. Tracey also has her own photography business specializing in family portraits. The mother of three children, Tracey is passionate about her family. Recognizing the need for a tangible reminder to give thanks and pray the 7 Great Prayers every day, Tracey used her creative zeal for jewelry to create the 7 Great Prayers Blessing Bracelet and Necklace. The 7 Great Prayers and Blessings jewelry have brought people comfort and strength in tough times. Tracey has found purpose and joy in sharing the 7 Great Prayers with the world. Paul and Tracey are using a portion of the sale proceeds to help homeless families and children.
