I first heard about Moms in Prayer in 2001 when my youngest daughter was in kindergarten. Another mom asked me to come to her group the next week to pray for our children and school. I must admit that my first thought was, “Oh no, something else to do!” However, very quickly the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “How can you refuse an opportunity to pray for your girls?” That did it! I went to that next meeting and I immediately sensed that this was what I was supposed to be doing. There was something very special and very powerful in coming together with other moms to pray. Not only has it benefited my daughters, but it has blessed me as well. Moms in Prayer has enriched my prayer life, given me a closer walk with God, and provided some of the dearest friends that I have ever known.
My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 29 years. We have two grown daughters, Lauren and Sarah. They are beautiful inside and out. Lauren is married to a wonderful man named Will and they soon hope to start a family of their own. Sarah is in college majoring in Exercise Science. Steve has always encouraged and supported me to spend a portion of my time each week praying in groups for our girls. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching children in our church, gardening, cooking, reading, and enjoying nature.
A scripture that God has given me in this journey to become the next Kentucky State Coordinator is Micah 6:8, “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
