Shut up...and pray...

We went to a marraige conference last week where the speaker's wife was talking with the women for a session. She said something that struck a cord with me...not just in my marriage, but in life! "Shut up, and pray!" I always try and fix things. People. Myself. Problems in the world. I need to just shut up, and pray! I can not solve things on my own. I can not change people or the world on my own. It all has to come from Him! So for now...I'm working on being quiet and praying.

We are starting the book, "Power of a Praying Wife." It's an old, popular book with lots of different versions out, but our small group is going to go through it as girls and I think it's going to be really helpful as I'm trying to learn the valuable lesson of shutting up and praying;)

You will love the book! I read through it with a friend when we were both engaged and so many things from it still stick with me, six years later. Enjoy it!

I love Power of a Praying Wife ... I read it in the beginning of our marriage almost 10 years ago, and I learned so much from it! You will really enjoy it!
