Episode 87 - Bringing Hope to Incarcerated Women

Episode 87 - Bringing Hope to Incarcerated Women

February 9, 2020

Moms in Prayer is knitting incarcerated moms back to their children.  Today, Lee sits down with the Moms in Prayer Prison team to discuss the work that is happening with incarcerated mothers across America.  “We see God calling His prodigals home as they bow their heads and pray for their kids.”  You do not want to miss this episode. 

About our Guests:

As the Moms in Prayer USA Prison Ministry Liaison, Nancy Turock works with 12 dedicated State Prison Liaisons and 140 volunteers in teams across 40 states to bring Moms in Prayer to incarcerated mothers. These mothers, who feel helpless and hopeless about doing anything for their children while in prison, discover through Moms in Prayer that they can actually do the very best thing for them – pray! For their children to belong to the Lord and live a Christian life, for safety, protection, caring teachers and success in school, Christian friendships, financial stability, and a chance to realize their dreams, are the timeless concerns and hopes of Christian mothers. In the process, we’ve also seen how Moms in Prayer changes the hearts of these incarcerated women, connects them with other Christian mothers in their facility, gives them a new attitude and cooperative spirit as they serve their time, and helps them return to their communities and lead changed lives.

There is always a need for more volunteers to pray with incarcerated moms. If you have a heart for these women and want to learn more about bringing prayer into the prisons, please contact Nancy Turock at Prison@MomsInPrayer.org

Episode 86 - Walking Through Devastation with Rhonda Robinson

Episode 86 - Walking Through Devastation with Rhonda Robinson

February 3, 2020

Candy coated prayers don’t fit when you are in the middle of devastation.  Today’s guest, Rhonda Robinson, mother of nine, walks us through the clinging and comeback that occurred in her life after the tragic death of her son.  This episode is a glimpse of hope for those who are mourning. 

About our Guests: Rhonda Robinson spent years writing parenting columns and articles, nevertheless, her debut book, "FreeFall: Holding Onto Faith When The Unthinkable Strikes," is the book she never wanted to write. After the death of her youngest son, and years struggling to survive the grief, Rhonda chose not to allow life's circumstances to define the course of her life, but to use them to refine her soul. Now, "FreeFall" helps others face a world they don't want to live in.

Rhonda teaches women how to transform the darkness into a season of profound change and emerge with vision and purpose. Through biblically-based spiritual wisdom, Rhonda leads readers to discover the life they were designed to live. You can find Rhonda deep in the peaceful hills of Tennessee, where she restores her barefoot soul with her high school sweetheart.
