In 2004, a friend from church invited me to a new prayer group she was starting called Moms in Prayer. My sons were both moving from private to public school that year. I knew they needed much prayer for the transition, especially my younger son, who opposed the move. God worked miracles that first year, and has continued to do so through my Moms in Prayer journey. After just a few weeks in his new school, my youngest son had made lifelong friends and never even mentioned his old school. A few years later, we prayed my older son through the process of receiving a service academy appointment. He received the news the afternoon after our group had praised God as the Revealer! God spoke to me in the group that morning and I knew he would be getting his appointment that day.
Those two boys are now grown. Preston is an officer in the Coast Guard, and Grant is in college at John Brown University – a wonderful Christian school. I have been married to my college sweetheart, Michael, since 1977. Hobbies and activities that I love are pastel painting and doing activities with our two rescue dogs.
My favorite verse is Ephesians 3:20 (NIV): “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us…” I love that no matter what we ask for our children and schools, God is able and will do more!
