I have been “in the trenches” of motherhood for over three decades, as God blessed my husband and I with eight children. I first learned of Moms in Prayer when the oldest was in junior high. A few of us moms started a group, using the Booklet as our guide. That turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. God has answered innumerable prayers for our children and their schools over the years. Some prayers have yet to be answered, but through it all I have grown in really knowing and trusting God and His Word.
The past few years, God has allowed me to help other moms on this journey of prayer, and currently I am blessed to watch how He is at work in the entire state of Kansas. I work part-time as a substitute teacher, attend activities of our remaining high schooler, and also make time for grandchildren, music, gardening, and art. My advice to young moms? Trust in him at all times… pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:8 (NIV)
