Some Exciting Things Happening, Lately!!


Hello, friends!!
I'm SO excited you are here today! There are so many things God is doing within my life and as a writer/wife/mother, serving the Lord, I'm bursting at the seems to tell you all about it...but I'm only able to share a little bit at this time. :(
So many new and fresh things are just in their infancy stages. Yet I can see how God has and will continue to use them to encourage others and allow me to answer my heartfelt calling from God.

First, I want to share a dream and a tug from God that I've had for several months. I have spent many hours in prayer, as to what He would have me do. Back when my son attended middle school, I attended a group called, "Moms In Touch". You may have heard of it. This international organization has been in existence many years, but have since my days of being involved, changed their name to "Moms In Prayer".  They mostly pray for some of our elementary, middle, and high school students, teachers, and leaders.  But I have felt the draw to also pray for our college students, professors, and young adult children, who also struggle with issues in their lives. We can't stop praying, once they graduate from high school. Anyways, to make a long story, longer...I have felt the tug to start a Moms In Prayer group in my area for not just our adult children, but those who are prodigals, that have wondered from the faith, also.

Then, last week I got this message on my Facebook page about an upcoming event...
Put on by none other than "Moms In Prayer" International. Once again, I felt the tug to take some kind of action. I gave the info. to my church leaders, but we have a very large church and they are so involved in the next few months in other activities, that it may not be something we do during our 3 services. That didn't stop me, though. I have set that day, Sunday, September 21 as an event on my Facebook page. I'm planning on spending time in prayer that day, probably with some sisters in Christ, as well as spend some time online, asking for specific prayer for our teachers, students, etc. If any of you would like to participate online with this event, feel free to go over to my page and join....

Bless Our Schools Sunday

 Along with this, I have felt that somehow, the Lord is wanting me to tie this in with my use of the internet/blogging. I will be sharing some more exciting news on this subject in the next 2 to 3 weeks. So keep checking back in here.

God is so good! I want to give Him all the glory for what He's doing and will be doing in future days!! 


I  continue to share  God's many blessing and gifts in my life at "Multitudes on Mondays", as I  Dare to Share.

  3. When our church had kids in school, we made a list of all their names so people could use it as a prayer list. I love your Moms in Prayer idea. Thank you for sharing your lovely exciting story with us here at “Tell Me a Story.” At: http://letmetelluastory.blogspot.com/
