Moms in Prayer
About our Guest
In 2004, a friend from church invited Debbie to a new prayer group she was starting called Moms in Prayer. Her sons were both moving from private to public school that year. She knew they needed much prayer for the transition. God worked miracles that first year and has continued to do so. Debbie learned the power of praying scripture and in unity with other moms. In 1977, Debbie married her college sweetheart, Michael. They were married for 44 years until he unexpectedly went to be with the Lord after suffering a heart attack. They raised two wonderful sons who are married to believing women. Preston is an officer in the Coast Guard and he and his wife made Debbie a first-time grandma in March of 2023 with the birth of Ronan Michael! Grant and his wife live in northwest Arkansas. Besides MIP, her hobbies include pastel painting and doing activities with her two rescue dogs.
