About our Guest:
Fern Nichols is a former elementary school teacher and the founder of Moms in Prayer International, a prayer movement that mobilizes women around the world to gather and pray for their children and schools. In 1984, Fern was fearful about sending her two oldest children to junior high. She knew the school would be a battlefield for their hearts and minds and realized the warfare would be intense and to fight in this battle, she needed to invite other moms to pray. Fern called another mom and asked her to pray with her for their children and school. Her friend’s response was an immediate “yes,” and that was the humble beginning of Moms in Prayer that now spans every state in the USA and more than 150 countries. Fern has traveled to almost every continent in the world speaking, teaching and training women how to pray effectively. She and her husband Rle have been married 53 years. They were involved with Campus Crusade for Christ (now CRU) for 15 years. Fern and Rle have four children and ten grandchildren.
