School days will be shortly upon us here in New England. In other parts of the country, many have already returned.

My thoughts turned to a car conversation a few years ago and the topic was “best friends”. It weighed heavy on a little girl’s heart that day.

For any school aged girl, the idea of having a best friend is of the utmost importance. The problem was beginning to rear its ugly head and it became clear ”“ there was more to this that just having a friend. The label of “best friend” pins worth and acceptance and desirability on our young souls.

As a mom, I was constantly praying for wisdom for:

  • wisdom in handling a colicky baby
  • wisdom in getting them to develop good sleep habits
  • wisdom in the preschools selected
  • wisdom in selecting doctors and dentists for them
  • wisdom in the choices of after school activities
  • wisdom in sorting out college

and the list goes on and on. The Book of James brought the reminder often –

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” (James 1:5, NLT)

And trust me ”“ ask, I did. Often. Daily. Sometimes moment by moment.

In remembering the car conversation, I am reminded of our need to pray and ask God to give wisdom to our children, and grandchildren as well.


I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as I share about three areas we need to pray for our children and grandchildren.
