“Loving the Power of Prayer”
Prayer can be a scream, a cry, or a whisper.
Prayer is forgiving ourselves and others.
Prayer is pleading with Almighty God.
Prayer is yearning to have our way.
Prayer is a conversation.
Prayer is being grateful.
Prayer is being sorry.
When one of my children hurts, call it codependent if you like, I hurt. I pray and pray and pray in all of these ways. No matter their age because it seems to me the pain is the same whether they are four or forty-four. I once made a promise that whatever else happened in my life I would not stop praying. I had stopped for many years. Life wasn’t that different without prayer – until I came to a place where life was so out of control and the grief so sharp, I knew I must pray.

I raised three children as a single mother before I remarried. I have experienced the potholes, pests, and perils of being the single head-of-household. As an educator in regular and special education for twenty years I know a great deal about child development and how to handle kids. I am the founder of SMORE for Women, a nonprofit whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, and Empowered. I'm a Certified Professional Coach and my stories have been published in several books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving is available on Amazon.
