When we are busy and life is a series of tasks to complete, problems to manage, and emotions run high, we often find ourselves trying to do it all ourselves. We forget that God longs to bless us. We forget to turn to Him. Yet, when we do seek Him, when prayer becomes our daily conversation, we find strength and peace beyond our comprehension. In this talk, Jeannie will share 7 strategies that will empower your prayer life, make your prayers more effectual, and enrich your family's faith.
Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!). For more than 20 years Jeannie has traveled around the country speaking to homeschoolers at conventions, covering a plethora of topics from Charlotte Mason to marriage and prayer.

1 Thes 5:18
Pray without ceasing, in all circumstances give thanks for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22But if I go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. So what shall I choose? I do not know. 23I am torn between the two. I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better indeed.
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”
