I first heard about Moms in Prayer at my church when a woman shared how the weekly prayer times have blessed her and her children. In 2002, when my two youngest children entered second grade, I joined my first Moms in Prayer group.
What attracted me most was that the women prayed scripturally and truly believed God to act in response to their prayers. I was in the midst of a challenging season of my life and for the first two years found myself crying during the prayer hour. The other moms were a consistent source of acceptance and encouragement to me. God calls his people to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Moms in Prayer groups do that very thing in an hour of devoted weekly prayer. The constant answers to prayer I’ve seen have had not only earthly impact, but eternal consequences.
Elisabeth Elliot once said, “The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God…or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world.” On May 17, 2016 I chose to line myself up with God as He called me to serve as South Texas State Coordinator. My desire is to glorify God as South Texas strives to impact children and schools for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.
My husband, Mike, and I have three adult children; one daughter and two sons. Running, reading, and visiting my family in San Diego are activities I enjoy in my leisure time.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (ESV)
