  1. This is so important in crucial when raising our kids in today’s society! Thanks so much for the tips! I have 3 boys, and a day doesn’t go by that I don’t lift them up in prayer!

  2. A parent never stops praying. Now we continue on with the grandkids. Wonderful reminder as life often gets busy and prayer is the first to go for many or at least put on hold.

  3. Melanie, You are speaking my language!!! With 3 children, I attribute so much of their journey to God faithfully answering prayers uttered with a humble heart and a knowledge that ONLY GOD could take the planted seeds and fully bless them. I believe this is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children, and it sets them up for such blessings. Loved this so much:) Crystal~
