Last summer I was incredibly blessed to begin a ladies prayer group in my home. It didn’t end up looking at all like I had thought it would, but God’s plan was way better than mine!
Join me today as I share how God worked in our prayer time and how YOU can start a women’s prayer group. Sisters in Christ need to shine brighter than ever in this dark world today, and let’s do it by linking arms and seeking Jesus together!
Join me on my journey to clear the clutter as I am simply living...for Him! I am a homeschooling mom sharing about my faith, family, hobby-farm life, and Jesus. I am also an author and speaker and love sharing my journey with others- and I am all about keeping it real and authentic! Join me as I seek less of this world and more of Jesus!

She speaks nationally at homeschooling conventions and recently was a speaker at the Family Bible Conference in Washington, DC. Her passion is to help others clear the clutter from their lives, seek God first, and to encourage women and families to get in the Word every day.
In 2016, she founded the Simply Living for Him Retreat, which is a time of rest and renewal for all women seeking Jesus. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.
Thank you so much for this episode! I’ve done several prayer groups over the years, and I’ve struggled with how few have a heart to pray together with friends. My current prayer group has been meeting bi-monthly since Nov. It’s discouraging sometimes because some nights one person comes, and other nights none. At most, we’ve had 4. We have seen God really answer prayers in big and visible ways, and we often fill out cards to mail to those who we are praying for. I’ve grown closer to one of the most faithful members, and our times together have been so neat. I pray that God brings the ladies that are supposed to be there each time.
I learned that it was never about how many came. Sometimes it was just one, but that one needed more one-on-one time. Even if no one came, I prayed that hour by myself. It was a huge blessing. Don’t be discouraged. press on! God will work through your obedient and faithful heart.
