Book Review: "Prayers that Changed History"
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
One prayer can change everything, says bestselling author Tricia Goyer inPrayers That Changed History.
Martin Luther. Sojourner Truth. Helen Keller. St. Patrick. We read their stories, and of other people like them, in history books and hear about the amazing things they did to change the world. But one part of the story is often left out: Each one of them wouldn’t have accomplished what they did without prayer.
InPrayers That Changed History, the stories of twenty-five notable people are presented along with how prayer changed their lives and changed history. Following each historical example is a biblical story that ties to that person’s life and actions, as well as ways you can use the power of prayer in your life as well. Because God isn’t done changing the world yet, and he would love to use you to make history.
Includes images of each historical figure.
This book was the perfect book to get you thinking about and self evaluating your prayer life. As we continue to see moral decline in our country we must stick to getting on our knees and petitioning the Holy Spirit and God to soften our hearts back to HIM! Back to loving our creator and loving others will move us in the right direction.
I loved reading the prayers that were said and the mini history lesson from when it took place. Each section also gives you the year, a picture, when the person lived, "something to think about," "how it changed history," "in their words," how it is related to the Bible, and how we can use the prayer in our own life.
If you want your prayer life to get a kick start then get inspired by reading these amazing prayers in "Prayers that Changed History." It is only $12.99 on Zondervan. Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this and all opinions are 100% mine.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast.

There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.

It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
