VIDEO: 10 Things I Pray for Our Kids

Years ago, when I had 3- and 1-year-old little boys, and was pregnant with our little girl, I wrote out a list of 10 goals we had brainstormed for our children. Even though more than 10 years have passed, and we’ve now got 8 children, it’s still a list I refer to– for direction in decisions we make, and for direction as to how to pray for them.



Here are the 10 things I wrote on that list, and an example of how I fold those goals into my prayers for them :

    Thanks for this video, Jess! One question. When you spoke of leading your kids through a passage of Scripture once a week (more in depth), can you share more specifics about what that looks like? Perhaps on a future vlog? Thanks so much for your ministry to your family and all of our families!
