A perfectly wonderful and imaginative collection of prayers to be used with handbell choirs throughout the year. 
"Linda Stahelin draws upon the experience of ringing and the unique character of bells in these clear, beautiful, resonant prayers that speak to the hearts of those who share in the ministry of ringing. For some of these short prayers, ringers even use their bells! Linda’s creative spirit finds inspiration in the dynamics of the church year, the seasons and special days of the calendar year, and the blessings and struggles of human life. Great for individual use or at the beginning or end of worship, a concert, or a rehearsal, these prayers offer a word of support and encouragement to handbell ringers, reminding them that their gifts are appreciated—and that their music-making helps to reveal the beauty and glory of God. A unique offering for the handbell world. I don’t believe there is anything else like it!" — Jeffrey Honoré, Director of Liturgical Music at St. Matthias Parish in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Director of the Milwaukee Archdiocesan Choir; Published liturgical composer and arranger.

"I surveyed several dozen devotional guides in my research for a class on choosing and leading devotions for handbell choirs. I offer a wide variety of materials and ideas in these classes but I tell attendees that if they only have budget to purchase one thing this year it should definitely be Linda Stahelin's "Ringing True: Prayers for Handbell Ringers." It is absolutely the best book I have found. Her beautifully written prayers capture the heart and soul of the ministry of bell ringing and speak to every choir's desire to be a blessing to all who hear our music. I have enjoyed using this guide with bell choirs in both of the congregations I serve, where everyone has welcomed it warmly."
