About Mama Hen

I’m mom to three children, two boys and one girl.  They are 22, 20, and 17 years old.   I’ve been a part of Mom’s In Touch prayer ministry for schools, praying for my children and their schools for many years.

God’s Word has blessed me and my children is so many ways!  Praying Scripture and setting aside time for to meet with God has become an incredible joy in  my life.  I want to share that joy and blessing with other mom’s through this blog.

As my chicks are getting ready to leave the nest, I can’t help but worry that my time to teach them is short and that they aren’t ready for the big bad world.  As I worry and wonder, I’m like a mama hen, counting the chicks, clucking over them, worry about where they are and what they’re doing, and I brood over my children in prayer, asking our Gracious Lord and God to be there when I cannot.

Mama Hen’s job is almost done, the raising the chicks part, that is; the praying part will go on.

  1. Love your Web site. I found it because you left a comment on the blog I write for Awana called Modern-Day Joseph (MDJ). Thanks for sharing all your great resources and for encouraging us moms to pray for our kids. Blessings to you!

  2. I, too, am a MIT leader. My kids are 25, 20, and 19. My youngest graduated from The Carolina Academy last year, but I’m still meeting with these ladies because we are all so close and the job of praying for these kids never stops. I also have a face book page for these kids called Bobcats in Motion. It’s been such an opportunity for the gospel to be dispelled to this group. So glad to find others who pray!
    God Bless you with your wonderful blog.

  3. Thank you for your continued time in prayer. Your daily emails have truly touched me on several occasions, often being just what I needed for that day. Blessings to you and your family.

  4. Thank your for your time in doing this. Sometimes it feels like there are so many “things” that I am or need to be praying over for my children, that this daily prayer is helpful!

  5. Loving your blog. I think that young adulthood is the scariest part about raising children. I have 3 grown kids in their 20’s. Praying scripture for your children is wonderful no matter what their ages. Bless you for encouraging that.

  6. Mama Hen,
    Your blog is powerful. Praying God’s Word is the best way to be sure we’re praying and living in His will. I appreciate your work here. May God bless you, your household and your “chicks” for your faithfulness.

  7. I love the thought behind your blog! I am a middle school math teacher and I would love it if you would keep me and my 8th grade students in your prayers. That I may make it through the year sane and that they may have sticky minds to learn all that I have to give them! Thank you!!

    1. Certainly! May God give you wisdom to teach well, and may he bless your students understanding of math; praying you’ll be able to make good connections, both in math and relationally, so you can make a difference in their lives. May you walk by the power of the Spirit every day as you minister to these 8th graders.-Judy

  8. Thank you for your blog. My daughter is headed off back to college to her first apt. May her trip be safe. 🙂
