It took me years to join a Moms in Prayer group—from hearing about Moms in Prayer on the radio, to listening to a Moms in Prayer story in MOPS, to seeing a Moms in Prayer sign at my little ones’ preschool every Tuesday, to ignoring the Moms in Prayer bulletin announcement at church, to finally accepting an invitation to a Moms in Prayer coffee at a friend’s home. I was a tough sell! But once the Lord had me, He taught me quickly! Rather than avoiding prayer, I tentatively asked God to grow my prayer life.

Job 19:25-27 have long been my favorite Scripture verses. From verse 26 …yet in my flesh I shall see God. One day in heaven this will be physically true. Meanwhile, every week I get to see Him in the faces and prayers of my Moms in Prayer sisters.

My husband and I have been married since 1993 and enjoy three grown up kids whenever we get the chance. God is good and I fill the time once spent on my kids with my own sisters and their kids!
