For as long as I can remember, I have loved talking to God. I remember as a little one, I went to the church office after school to be with my mom. While she finished her work, I wandered around the church building, totally aware that God was with me. While I am sure I did most of the talking, I know He loved whatever I had to say – usually just sharing about my day. What parent doesn’t love to hear those stories?

That’s what prayer is all about. Talking to God. Sharing your heart with the amazing God who created you. He loves you and wants to hear what you have to say. Having a bad day? That’s okay – He can take it! Tell Him how you feel. Let Him help you. Want to share something fun or silly? He loves that too. Just share your heart. That’s the best kind of prayer.

That’s the inspiration behind the Hometown Prayer Mission – a place where you can learn and grow in your conversations with God.

I started the Hometown Prayer Mission after spending many years helping to grow intercessory prayer at my church and in my community of Dahlonega, Georgia. I discovered how much I love helping people grow in their prayer life. I love watching people connect with God, talk to Him, and learn how to hear His voice.

My heart is to see lots of those prayer conversations started. The Hometown Prayer Mission is here to help and encourage. Let us know how we can help you. We are glad you’re here.
