prayer from a sometimes single parent

Have you ever heard of the expression “tour widow”? I hadn’t either before I became one. It’s an insider term for what much of the music industry calls the wives of musicians who go out on tour for weeks or months at a time, leaving them home alone or to care for their children. I remember the first three week stint …

Our Kids Bedtime Routine & Prayer

Kids Bedtime Routine

Motherhood crept up on me. I know I know, I had nine months to prepare for my first child. But as an only child myself, I was not exposed to a lot of babies, much less taught how to care for little ones. I followed my doctors advice and actually didn’t read any parenting books while I was pregnant. However, …

Felt Prayers

Have you ever been able to feel when someone is praying for you? You ever wished you could sense some prayers more than you do?

Answered Prayers! No Lymphoma or Thyroid Cancer!

I have good news! Our prayers were answered! There is no lymphoma or thyroid cancer in my body! (That, and I lost 6 pounds from yesterday – or maybe it’s just the difference in doctor’s scales…whatever it is, don’t steal my joy!) It’s no secret that I was quite downhearted after yesterday.

Expect Results

Many of us pray, but do not wait for a response.  Sometimes the response we receive from God is not the same as what we praying for, and therefore we believe the prayer to be ineffective. Too many times I believe we pray without actually expecting God to deliver results.  It is as if we are throwing words into a …
