I have exciting news to share! Keith Ferrin and I have collaborated to organize the Scripture prayers on this blog into a book. It includes three sections: 365 daily prayers, prayers by category, and blessings to pray for your children. We’ve designed the page with room for you to make notes.
Check out all the details and a sample page HERE.
We’re putting the finishing touches on the book this week.
I’ll be sharing about how you can order your copy soon.
