As a young mother with a toddler son, God put a powerful burden on my heart to pray for the children. So in obedience, we formed a prayer team, but with no Scripture or format. We prayed out of our anxieties and worries. Then God providentially put a Moms in Prayer Booklet in my hand. I knew that was exactly what He was calling me to do.
Now 17 years later, our whole family knows Moms in Prayer is an important part of our blessed lives. My husband Scott of over 20 years, my oldest son, Will, and our twins, Josh and David, all know the Lord and love Him. I am a better wife and mother because God has taught me to trust Him and listen more than tell Him what He already knows. The women in my Moms in Prayer group and I are far from perfect, but they are the authentic witnesses of Christ I always longed to find. God has taught me the power of gathering together in agreement and claiming His promises for my children and their schools. By His power, my prayer partners become my sisters and my children and their schools become sightings of God’s Kingdom on earth.
As graduates, my husband and I were married on the University of Alabama campus. We are all big football fans and we never miss our oldest son marching in the Million Dollar Band. We love tubing, swimming and knee boarding at the lake and hosting family and friends to enjoy life together.
My favorite verse is John 15:5, because Christ came to me in a powerful dream. I was too busy and He reminded me, “I am the Vine and you are the branches. Those who remain in Me and I in them, will bear much fruit. For apart from Me, you can do nothing.”
