When I was first asked to join a Moms in Touch (now Moms in Prayer) group in 1991, my polite answer was, “No thank you.” My children went to a Christian school and I prayed for them every day, so I felt I was doing enough. But after being asked several times, I had run out of excuses and reluctantly went to the group. What I experienced in that little group of praying moms changed my life and my family’s lives forever.
When they started the hour of prayer with a time of Praise to focus on God and later prayed for their children using God’s promises, I knew this was what I had been missing in my “on the run” prayers. I came every week and started seeing God’s amazing answers to our prayers. It has changed my own personal prayer life and I now pray God’s promises for my husband as well!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Jeff, since 1976 and we have three grown children and two wonderful in-laws. We live on a hobby farm in Nowthen, Minnesota, where we get many chances to pray and seek God’s wisdom as my husband is now the mayor! I love being outside on our farm, gardening, kayaking, traveling and planning events and parties.
One of my favorite Scripture verses is Psalm 118:1: “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His lovingkindness is everlasting.”
