Being in a Moms in Prayer group changed my son's life forever.Scripture: 

But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead. Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.”  Isaiah 43:1-6 (NIV)

  2. Much ALOHA and Blessings to You, Dr. Joy.

    Today, am MIP mom of a 16 yr old son, Jason. We meet weekly for prayer hour in Kaneohe, Hawaii.
    Your living testimony of The Legacy of Faith has inspired me tremendously.

    I, too had a Mom who was a believer and is in heaven (2003). She was a Public school teacher for 32 years and a Sunday school teacher at her church and served in the kitchen and floral arrangements for Pastor’s pulpit.

    I was introduced to MIP while visiting with my husband another local church a few years ago. On the way to the restroom, I saw a bulletin board with the MIP flyer: Jill Buss and Dorothy Whitaker to contact.

    After 2016 when I survived a Brain Hemmorhage, my son was in the 5th grade at a public school.
    My desire has been was to meet other Christian Families — Moms especially with kids my child’s age.
    At the time, the church we were attending lacked children in attendance. So, this need drove me to seek further into the MIP ministry.

    1. Hello Janelle, it is wonderful to hear your testimony. Thank you for sharing. I pray God’s abundant blessings upon your son, Jason and God will raise him and use him as His salt and light in this world!

  3. I just listen to this Moms in Prayer podcast featuring my friend and MIP group leader Dr. Deborah Joy! I am so grateful to be in her Moms in Prayer group this year and the fact that she is also my son’s piano teacher makes us doubly blessed! What I love about Dr. Joy are her heartfelt prayers as well as her love / passion for Christ and his church! I am certain this podcast will bless you

    1. Hello sister,

      Thank you for sharing this beautiful word. May the Lord continually bless your son, Logan with His wisdom and favor!
