Prayer has always meant a lot to my family as I was growing up and to this day. You know the saying, “the family that prays together, stays together.” I truly believe prayer makes a difference in our lives and gives us strength through the most difficult times. When I first found out I was pregnant, I prayed for my child daily. Sometimes, I prayed multiple times a day for her because it was such a scary moment in my life. I was misdiagnosed with a blighted ovum and told she wouldn’t be here, but she’s here and amazing! Praying for her constantly and praying for my strength definitely helped me in the most trying time in my life.

Y’all. That’s how the book BEGINS! Do you see what I mean by it giving you ALL THE FEELS!? The first page took me back to the day I met my baby girl for the very first time after all the pregnancy scares and all. BUT GOD! This book is the truth. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and it does the same for the girls. They can definitely relate to the different moments that are in the book. I want them to know that we are constantly thinking of and praying for them and this book definitely helps with that. It also helps them understand how and why prayer is so important.At the moment I hear you jump out of bed, I start praying that God puts good thoughts in your head. #WhenIPrayForYou Click To Tweet
