How this all got started & where it's going...it always comes back to our relationship with God.

Our life regularly gets busy and sometimes we forget that there is a lot more to life than just our day-to-day tasks and responsibilities. So, many years ago, Kathleen started handcrafting treasures as a way to keep balance in her life and bring beauty to our home. Not only did she make treasures for our home, but she also made beaded jewelry for friends, family & for herself.

Then after many years of being fair-weather Catholics, we were ready to deepen our faith and get more involved in the church community, which we believed would help with the balance we’re constantly searching for. As a start to increasing our involvement & faith, Kathleen used her skills of jewelry making and began to make rosaries (both prayer beads & prayer knots) for church missions. Then our friends and family wanted some, so she created rosaries for them too.

Shortly after that, we found out that the woman who made & donated door rosaries to our local Catholic School's annual Christmas sale was retiring. Because Kathleen loved these items so much, she decided that they had to continue to be available for others.

For the next year Kathleen researched & crafted, learning to tie different knots while testing various ropes & crosses - doing everything necessary to create quality door rosaries to donate to the school for the following year's Christmas sale. It was a success - the school loved them! With the help of Kathleen’s sisters & friends, we sold several more door rosaries word-of-mouth that same year. Since then, we've started designing and making our own unique crosses and have added other unique and useful Catholic gifts to our shop.

We are definitely not perfect people, nor perfect Christians. But we’re on a life-long journey to deepen our faith in God, asking questions, learning lessons from people of different religions & ethnicities, and exploring more of our own religion. One step in this journey is for us to share these door rosaries and other gifts of prayer & devotion with others. And we hope one of our items here speaks to your heart, providing a daily reminder to bring God into your life.

Please feel free to ask questions about the items you see in our shop. Or, if you don't find exactly what you're looking for let us know...It may be something we have in stock, but just haven't listed yet!

Sending you Grace & Blessings,
Kathleen & the Knots of Grace Team

P.S. In addition to Etsy, we are set up shop at several craft shows in the metro-Atlanta area each Spring & Fall. Check out what’s going on by following us on Instagram & Facebook! @knotsofgrace

Frequently asked questions

➢ You can personalize your door rosaries by selecting a cord color of your choice. There's a small fee to make the change. Please see individual listings for details.

Door Rosary Care

The door rosary’s rope is simple and easy to clean by using a wet cloth and warm water. Spot clean the dirty areas by wiping it with the wet cloth.

If warm water alone is not getting it clean, add a small amount of mild soap to the warm water before wetting the cleaning cloth. Spot clean as before. When you are finished wipe the rope with clean warm water to remove the soapy residue.

We do not recommend submerging the entire length of rosary rope, as the crosses are not created to be water resistant.

Can I hang a Rearview Mirror Rosary in my car?

Yes, but please make sure it's okay in your specific location.

➢ Different states have slightly differing laws about hanging items from the rearview mirror.
➢ Please refer to the laws in your specific state / location before purchasing a Rearview Mirror Rosary.

In states items hanging from the rearview mirror is accepted, the Rearview Mirror Rosary was designed to be small enough so not to distract the average driver. In most cars, it hangs approximately 5 inches below the mirror.
