  1. Thank you so much for this podcast dedicated to the class of 2020! I too have a senior graduate that had his world turned upside down. And as a mom I couldn’t fix it! I am so thankful for prayer, and that God led me to start a Moms in Prayer group when he went off to kindergarten! It is the most powerful thing we can do when we feel powerless! Thank you for having Jennifer and Lydia Lee on to share their stories of encouragement and hope. I know of them but have not met them in person yet. Blessings to you and thank you again!

    1. Laura, Thank you for your comment! I’m sure it’s been difficult for your son missing out on his graduation ceremony as well as other important events at the end of the school year. That’s wonderful that you’ve prayed for him since kindergarten. If you need any resources or information for moms praying for their college children, see our College Praying Moms web page: https://momsinprayer.org/get-involved/join-a-group/college-praying-moms/ Have a good weekend Laura.
