Tracey Krause Praise quotes

Tracey Krause from PraiseQuotes.com

Hi there!  Welcome to PraiseQuotes.com.  My name is Tracey and I wanted to give you a little information about the family and ideas behind this website.

My husband and I, along with our two children, moved to Ecuador in 2012. Mainly we were looking for adventure, and to give ourselves a break from the North American lifestyle that we were caught up in.  We also wanted to expose our kids to a different culture, a new language, and different values.

Throughout our lives, we have been seeking God’s will and presence.  He has blessed us deeply with this verse, the basis for PraiseQuotes.com: Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thess 5:16-18)

Info about our Designs

My husband Rob is the photographer amongst us and we use his pictures in most of our designs.  If you want to use any of his pictures for your designs or for your website, you can find them by clicking here to go to StockphotoMedia.

If you would like one of our designs on a picture, poster or a card, you can buy them here at Fine Art America, or if you would like a mug or other merchandise, you can buy them here at Zazzle.
