I Think You Should Join a Prayer Group…

Every Wednesday afternoon, an hour before school lets out, I climb some rickety stairs to the music room at my kids’ school. It’s a little attic room turn school room above the chapel on campus. In that room, I meet three or four other mamas to pray. It’s become a beautiful, cozy little place to meet […]

How To Pray for Difficult Relationships

One of my favorite books on prayer is Stormie Omartian’s Power of a Praying Wife. Each short chapter in the book is has a Scripture-based prayer to pray for your husband. It’s an easy book to read and I picked it up, not out of deep love for my husband but with a desire to fix […]
